The Tuesday Juxtapose - 12112013 Asparagus
Dish: 蘆筍卷串燒 Grilled Asparagus Skewer
Venue: 焱川 Hikawa
Address: G/F, 5 Landale Street, Wan Chai 灣仔蘭杜街5號地下
The Grilled Asparagus Skewers at Hikawa are in actual fact wrapped with thin slices of pork. The chef controls the timing impeccably. The grilled pork is slightly charred giving it a smoky flavour. The asparagus inside is cooked through and moist. I suppose this theory doesn't work for vegetarians, but I do believe, that adding a tiny bit of meat to vegetable dishes, really seems to bring out its flavours.
Best consumed … during after work drinks with a sweet sake or japanese beer!
