Dim Sum & Lobster Lunch at Yu Seafood

I never thought to try this place until I came for an event a few weeks ago. Came back to redeem my har gao voucher for lunch, ended up ordering four dim sum and the lobster set lunch. Dim sum here in fusion style, impressive presentation and good taste.

珍珠雞 (Sticky Rice w Chicken) - What a surprise in presentation! Usually wrapped in lotus leaf, this was presented in an open style like mini sandwiches, with a crispy rice seared top.

天下第一包 (Baked BBQ pork bun with sweet top) - My favorite fusion dim sum - indeed this was very good, soft bun, perfect balance of sweet & savory.

Beef Ball - The beef balls were presented in a fusion way too, sitting on top of hard bitter melon with a side of corn. Usually don't eat this but had a small bite and it was flavorful and soft texture.

Lobster Lunch for 2 ($55) included e-fu noodles topped with abalone slices, steamed lobster and lobster congee. Pretty good deal and portion enough to feed 4. Everything was good and the congee was very soft and fluffy.


Total came to $87 after tax for the lobster lunch, 4 dim sum and 4 tea (redeemed my free har gau voucher). Overall decent fusion-style food in a high-end environment. I sat in the private room which was nice and quiet except for the kid watching videos on his phone beside us.

Verdict: worth a try for lunch

Copenhagen | Höst

Host is a lovely New Nordic restaurant that uses local ingredients and unique preparation & presentation methods I haven't seen anywhere else. Definitely the highlight of my Copenhagen trip. We ordered two each of the set menus: Höst Menu at 325kr and Höst Signature Menu at 425kr. They have new menus each month.

The interior has a really nice cozy, natural vibe. I love this rustic type of style.

To start, we had this lovely amuse bouche platter - squid ink chips, fresh radish, oyster cream, egg yolk topped with fish roe, fresh beans with mussel cream. Wow! This was my favorite of the night and an excellent indicator of the delicate, unique dishes to follow.
Aside from the 3 courses in the set menu, they gave us an additional 3 in-between courses which I actually liked more than the set menu. 
Complementary in-between dishes:
Forgot the name of this but it was like a salty, seaweed-ish flavoured "bread" with a bit of chewiness. The salted butter is amazing.
Mini rye a…

What to Eat in Copenhagen

1. Seafood Platter & Smørrebrød at Torvehallerne Market

Torvehallerne is a quiet, higher-end food market. Here you will find a variety of vendors selling fresh seafood, meats, open-faced sandwiches (Smørrebrød), etc. Smørrebrød is one of the "national dishes" if you will - a slice of rye bread typically topped with egg, shrimp or smoked salmon. 
Price: 100-200 kr/person 

2. Soft Ice
The icecream here tastes different. Rajissimo is a chain that serves churros, soft serve and gelato. My favorite was the pistachio & mango gelato!
The second place we tried was a liege waffle place at the corner in Nyhavn. Fresh piping hot waffle topped with soft serve, they also have a variety of icecream. We couldn't help but stop by twice (for both dessert shops!)

3. Paper Island (Papirøen) Street Food Market

Paper Island is a 'hipster' indoor street food market that offers everything from tacos to pizza to butter chicken to cheesecake. Here is the Smorrebrod we got from one …
