One of the nice perks of working for a PR agency that reps a number of restaurants is that you can take journos out to media lunches to have them sample the food. This of course leads to me being able to try out many new restaurants. While I try to refrain from writing too much about the day job clients, quite a few people have been asking me about Shore lately so I figured why not write a post on it. Shore, is a split-level restaurant and bar that is located at L Place Central. Offering steak and seafood as well as international DJ entertainment, the venue is actually a three-in-one concept where the upstairs is a chic steak and seafood restaurant, downstairs a cool bar and an expansive outdoor chill out terrace.
Having been there a couple times, I've found the food to be consistently good (although the portions tend to be a bit on the large side so I'd advise ordering a few dishes to share to fully enjoy what they have to offer.) Of particular delight is their Lettuce Hearts with Crab salad and this is high praise coming from a girl who loathes her greens. The steak tartare was rather rich in flavour but very pleasant when combining it with their walnut bread.
Their mains are nicely done but nothing that really blows my mind, but be forewarned that the fries are addictive.
What does blow my mind, however, is their Textured Tart dessert which comprises of Valrhona fudge and amedei ice-cream bon bons. The picture does not do it justice.
Another thing worth noting is that the restaurant does not do the customary 10% service charge that is ubiquitous throughout Hong Kong (I swear, if the cha chan tengs think they can get away with it, they will charge us an extra 10% too).
Shore is located at 3rd and 4th floor, L Place, 139 Queen’s Road, Central, Hong Kong
