As a new comer to Hong Kong, I am glad that I followed a group of Instagrammers so I know where to eat! Heehee! I have constantly seen food porn of Trattoria Doppio Zero, so I begged Esky to visit with me.
When mentioned that I am pregnant, they kindly organise a really really comfy booth for me to sit in. So nice of them ^^
We started off with the truffled fried oyster ($48 each). I am so glad that they offered cooked oyster- I have had oysters for ages!!! However, I found the oyster not super duper fresh and I couldn’t really taste the truffle in the aioli. It was good, but not really that sensational.
Esky ordered the prime beef carpaccio with sea urchin $138 while I looked on :,(. It looked fantastic and Esky said it was delicious.
Roasted bone marrow was next, served with grilled focaccia and onion jam $128. I don’t really care for the onion jam, but the bone marrow was melt in your mouth delightful.
I have been eyeing on this sea urchin pasta ($228 fora main size portion)for ever. Normally it comes with crab roe, but because I am pregnant and the roe is not cooked I had to sadly omit it 😦
Sadly, it wasn’t as good as I expected. To put it nicely, the flavours were really subtle. Too subtle. It needed a good pinch of salt. The tarragon flavours overpowered the dish as well, it had this licorice flavour I didn’t really like. The pasta was fully coated with sea urchin, but I really couldn’t taste the sea urchin at all, it just made the pasta really gluggy.
Esky ordered the tiger prawns with polenta fries $328 which he said the prawns were ok but slightly undercooked. We both really liked the polenta fries though!
We ordered oyster mushroom and brocolini as sides ($78 for 2). The oyster mushroom was supposed to be mixed with anchovies, but I certainly couldn’t taste the anchovies. The brocolini was pretty yummy though.
Overall, perhaps I am used to fantastic western food in Melbourne, I wasn’t that impressed with Tattoria Doppio Zero. I wish I could say I love it, but really I don’t know whether I would visit again considering there are so many yummy food in Hong Kong. 5.5/10
