TURN-ONS As one of the top steak restaurants in Hong Kong, Morton's delivers. I started off with a Ginger Lychee Mortini which had Ketel One Vodka with Crème de Gingembre Liqueur, Ruby Red Grapefruit juice and lychees. For starters, we had the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake (pictured) with mustard mayonnaise sauce which had nice, chunky pieces of crab. We also shared the near-perfect baked five-onion soup and centre-cut iceberg salad with chopped egg, tomato and bacon drenched in Morton's signature blue cheese dressing. For mains, I chose the tasty signature cut prime New York strip while my companion ordered the mixed grill with 6oz filet mignon with grilled shrimp and bacon wrapped scallop which was a great option. To finish, we had the Morton's legendary hot chocolate cake and a coffee.
TURN-OFFS Sitting next to the open kitchen, I smelled like cooked meat due to a broken fan. But, I was soon moved.
DRINKS Excellent and expensive wine list.
