The team behind organic and trendy Locofama have teamed up with cultural gift shop, G.O.D., to create sister restaurant, Sohofama. They have successfully created a foodie heaven fusing creative, sophisticated, and quirky design with great quality produce, organic farming, and delicious healthy living. Sohofama's menu is a fusion of old classic Chinese recipes with modern techniques in cooking and organic living. They support local farming and community bringing a true sense of Hong Kong to the venue. We loved the industrial yet cozy space and sampled their "Soho's Classic Tasting Menu" so we could have a little of everything. Favourite dishes off the menu included the melt in your mouth Slow Cooked 48hr Natural US Beef Short Rib Pancake Sliders, the fragrant 24 Hour Drunken Organic Egg, the crispy and indulgent Stir Fried Tiger Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk, and the savoury and moreish Stir-Fried Organic US Pork Belly with Chili and Housemade Pancake Wraps. Every bite was delicious, comforting, and happily MSG free. The guilt free take on eating local food was refreshing. Flavour was never compromised and was actually enhanced with fresh, organic ingredients. Make sure to sample a few of their unique cocktails which combine fresh flavours and great display. An ideal spot for dining with friends or a quick lunch between shopping. We will definitely be returning for more and more.

TRIMMED SIRLOIN STEAK WITH IT'S UNIQUE SAUCE AND HOMEMADE FRENCH FRIES


THE STEAK IS SERVED IN TWO PORTIONS TO MAKE SURE IT IS KEPT WARM

"RELAIS" PROFITEROLES 

LE VACHERIN D'ETE



France's renowned Le Relais De L'Entrecote has hit Asia with it's first venue in HK. We were very excited to sample this Parisienne export featuring a no fuss, no menu execution and it's famed "secret" sauce. L'Entrecote, to it's loyal followers, serves a simple two course menu starting with a walnut salad and featuring the cooked to order contre-filet paired with their mouthwatering sauce.   The only decision the diner must make is how they would like their steak prepared. The steak is served at perfect temperature upon a sterling silver platter and alongside a big stack of piping hot frites.  We loved the authentic restaurant design taking you off the streets of Wan Chai into a little french bistro. The meat was juicy and tender while the sauce lived up to all the hype. Make sure to sample a dessert from the indulgently classic menu of French favourites including their "Relais" Profiteroles and thier decadent Le Vacherin D'Ete. We can't wait to return for another date night or visit with family.
