Hong Kong - Cecconi's

Dinner at Cecconi's with Jack, who has great taste and is always so nice! Thanks for a wonderful meal, Jack. :)

caprese - the mozzarella was really good, and the blanched & skinned cherry tomatoes softened the texture of the salad, making it feel much more "laid back." Is there such a thing as a "laid back salad"? I don't know. But it was good.

Butternut squash risotto with feta cheese, pine nuts and spinach. I loved it. Better shared - it's huge.

Jack's chicken in mushroom sauce and mashed potatoes. The peas in the foreground sounded promising on the menu - buttered and sauteed with pancetta. Pity the peas tasted like they were from the frozen section of a supermarket.

pavlova with fruit - very sweet, very sour, quite intense but not overwhelming.
