We had a unique luncheon at Hugos. It is located within the Hyatt in Kowloon. The service was impeccible, with two designated servers in our private dining room. The tables in the main dining room are too crowded to have some of the more special dishes, so the private rooms are much better. There is a special silver domed trolley cart with a revolving carousel with different appetizers inside, for example. Although we had to wait about 10 minutes while they restocked the cart, the smoked salmon was wonderful- fresh, with a dill flavor. Also from the cart, the chicken pate, prawn salad with mango, prosciutto with melon, and ox tongue were excellent. The Caesar salad is prepared fresh in front of you on a small cart and is very light, with lemon overtones. For main courses, the prime rib is buttery tender, much higher quality than virtually any other restaurant in HK. The lobster thermidor is a bit heavier, with a cream and cheese sauce, but full of chunks of tender lobster.
The desserts were the best- the cherries Jubilee and bombe Alaska flamed in front of you. The chocolate soufflé was wonderful. Skip the Crepes Suzette, though- they were tough. The chocolate mousse cake from the dessert trolley was very good.
While the prices were high, the quality of food and service make Hugos a wonderful place for a special meal.
