35 Tung Choi Street, Mongkok Tel: 2384 8998 Open: Monday-Sunday noon-1am Cuisine: Continental European. Price: HK$530 for two, excluding drinks. Ambience: The sleek, white, minimalist interior makes this eatery stand out among the nondescript cha chan tengs in the heart of Mongkok, although the glass-top tables suggest quick-cleaning convenience more than fine dining. Located on a side street in the Ladies Market, Daisy can get noisy during peak hours - so much so that the din from a big table next to us drove us to a quieter corner. Pros: The chef has 15 years' experience and excels in presentation. Daisy is a good choice for those who want to sit down for a proper meal after a shopping spree in Mongkok. Cons: Many of the dishes are like the goods sold in the Ladies Market: pretty from a distance, but not quite as attractive on closer examination. Although the food is well presented, some of the dishes we sampled were mediocre. The Caesar salad with Parma ham and salmon (HK$98), for instance, could have been a refreshing start on a hot and humid evening. But the cheese powder sprinkled on the top overpowered the ham and the salmon. The risotto suffered the same problem. The angel-hair pasta with fresh lobster (HK$158, including a soup and a drink) was bland. On the other hand, the hazelnut parfait (HK$35) was too sweet. Recommended dishes: Sauteed mushrooms (HK$48) was simple and perfectly seasoned for our palates. Baked pigeon with risotto (HK$108, right) earned marks for the tender meat, although my companion found it tricky to cut the pigeon because it was on the boney side. For dessert, the creme brulee (HK$35) was scrumptious and our favourite of all the dishes. What else? The chef can tailor-make dishes if you order one or two days in advance. He can also make birthday cakes with one day's notice.
