Teatime is just another excuse for me to get fat. Parkview has a two different menus for afternoon tea munches. The tea menu is for savory bites and the dessert menu is for sweet bites. My family and I went with the dessert menu but in for foodies who doesn’t have sweet tooth, here is their tea menu:
- Smoked Salmon Salad with Black Truffle Paste $80 HKD
- Signature Toast Sampler – smoke salmon on scramble eggs, avocado and smoke ham, and mushroom with baby greens and cheese $62 HKD
- Charcoal Club Sandwich $65 HKD
- BLT U.S. Style Beef Burger with French Fries $70 HKD
- Penne Bolognese $65 HKD
- Blue Mussels and Shrimp Spaghetti with Pesto Sauce $65 HKD
- Avocado Carbonara with Soft-boiled Egg $70 HKD
- Seafood Doria (tomato or cream sauce) $70 HKD
All sets come with a choice of coffee, tea, or orange juice. Although I couldn’t comment on the taste, it seems like the price is very reasonable. Good for people who needs a late lunch bite cause they couldn’t make it during lunch hours.
There’s only four choices on the dessert menu and the sets also comes with your choice of coffee, tea, or orange juice.
- Banana Chocolate Danish Box with Chocolate Ice-cream $53 HKD
- Berry Garden Danish Box with Vanilla Ice-cream $53 HKD
- Belgium Chocolate Molten Cake with Vanilla Ice-cream $43 HKD
- Milky Bread Pudding with Home-made Vanilla Sauce $38 HKD
I ordered the banana chocolate danish box.
I love how Parkview doesn’t cheat on their costumers… Some foodie out there might not understand what I mean. There’s a lot of restaurant in Hong Kong who holds back on portions or ingredients when it comes to food… It sucks cause all they care about is to earn money. Parkview’s toast box was not just ordinary toast, it was a danish. It taste so much better than just an ordinary block of white bread. They gave two big scoops of chocolate ice-cream instead of one. And there were plenty of bananas on top of the box. To be honest, it was really filling. But it was a good deal and a nice plate to share. I just wish the waiting time could be shorter cause my plate came last and everyone on the table was almost done with their plate.
My uncle ordered the molten cake. It was a smaller portion but I would say its just right. Molten cakes could easily get too sweet and with the topped ice-cream, I could barely finish the whole thing. But Parkview’s molten cake was not too sweet. Don’t get me wrong, the cake was rich in chocolate but its just not as sweet as the ones I had.
My mom ordered the bread budding. I must say the bread pudding was the winning dish among all the dessert choices. The bread pudding was nicely done and the vanilla sauce was not overly sweet but has that nice vanilla taste in it.
There are raisins in the bread pudding to add that little sweetness to the bread and a chewy texture to make it more exciting.
I loved Parkview. There price is very reasonable and the food has quality in it. I definitely want to come back for their savory tea sets.
