Fofo el Wily Revisited @ Central

12:00 PM , 0 Comments


After this many years, we brought the twoddler back to our favourite Spanish restaurant in Hong Kong and though they have since lost the Michelin star status, we were still looking forward to reminiscing the good old times over our favourite dishes.


While the outlook remained largely same same as before, the vibes could have changed? Less crowded and hectic.


After having these toasted bruschettas with tomato paste, I realized I should have ordered some bikinis to share as well on hindsight. So crunchy and light, I would not have minded seconds at all if they obliged.

"Cochinollo" Crispy Suckling Pig (HKD 235)
Baby confit potatoes, onions, tomato cake, suckling pig sauce

This time we had it as a mains and the portions are still as puny as ever. Four pieces for ala carte and two for set dinner.

Despite the puniness of this, it was all the good things happening in a tiny package.


Brussel Sprouts with Cabbage, Black Garlic, Jerusalem Artichoke Cream (HKD 128)

Pricey buttery kind of yum. Next to kale, brussel sprouts stir fried has to be the yummiest combination ever.


Traditional Spanish Boston Lobster and Seafood Paella (HKD 498)

Now for the one we have been waiting so long for - lobster gets me weak in the knees. Briney lobster, crystal prawns and clams with a dash made this already tasty paella even saltier.


The first few bites were intense and delicious and it just got too heavy for liking. It did not help that the lobster was more salty than seafood sweet. Great for sharing amongst two if no other sides are ordered else rope in more people to share the sin!

We were clearly too stuffed to even consider dessert and somehow everything but the paella wowed us.
