Star Restaurant

Even on a Friday night the restaurant was relatively quiet, which was handy after a long week. The generously sized roasted king prawns and mango fresh fruit salad (HK$118) could have made a meal on its own, although it is a starter.

Pear market

The nashi doesn't come in the typical pear shape - it looks more like an apple, which explains why it's also called the apple-pear. Another common name for it is Asian pear, because the fruit is grown in parts of East Asia.
