When I walked past this place, the bright pink immediately stood out.
(Not my hand!!!)
It reminded me of Bentopia especially the clear bag that holds the clear tubs of salads.
The napkins were really SASSY too, as if was written by lipstick saying "CALL ME" and I love the lipstick mark too!!!
I have always wanted to try Alvin Leung's creations at Bo Innovation but I never quite made it, anyway this place is at street level and easily accessible.
They specialise in healthly food with a mix of Japanese, Chinese and Western cuisine and there is a hint of gastronomy in there as well.
They serve salads, sushi burritos or you can get the combo which is a full salad and a half portion of sushi burrito.
There are four salads each with its own attractiveness, however there were two that won me, the Salty Lemon with seared salmon and the Unami Nicoise.
The first salad which was the Demon black caesar had a slight gastronomic touch because it had bacon flavoured chicken and black garlic dressing hence the name black caesar. I wanted to try this one but I have already eaten black garlic before.
The second salad was the Iconic true 8, which has a meaning behind the name, iconic because they used an iconic vinegar from HK called PAT CHUN which has the letter eight, hence the 8 in the Iconic 8!
The third salad is the Go Green which is plain vegetarian.
The fourth salad is the Unami Nicoise which got my attention because of the word Unami and the unami vinaigrette. I really wanted to try this because in UK there is a sauce called Unami No 5 so I wanted to see if the taste would be similar to that. This salad also had "Har -Mi" powder (grounded dried shrimps I think) which was another factor I had to get this salad.
The fifth salad which was Salty Lemon and seared salmon I had to get as well because I am a lemon freek and in the salad there are crispy pieces of seaweed which I like too!
If you don't like salads they have SUSHI BURRITO as well which is more filling, it is sushi wrapped in burrito. There is a BLT sushi burrito which is bacon, lettuce and tomato with rice in a burrito wrap or the Hot sichuan chick which is obviously spicy and the 3B Beef and black bean too with shichimi dust!!
For the sushi burrito I chose the Cantonese steamed fish and the Vegetarian taco trio.
When the salads were ready, I was so eager to collect it and it felt really cool carrying it about because the bag and packaging was really nice.
I feel really guilty my photos are not as good as my usual food photos but this time I just couldnt wait to dig in the salad that I rushed those photos.
Anyway I will get Beautifood again so there will be more photos.
I really loved the "har mi" powder that was sprinkled on it, the prawns were fresh and the dressing was really moreish.
Salty lemon and seared salmon:
I really loved this salad and there was generous dressing to cover every leaf in the salad.
The dressing was really refreshing that you felt hungrier after finishing it!
The crispy pieces of seaweed in the salad had this savoury taste which also made it moreish.
As for the seared salmon it was delicious and tender.
Vegetarian Taco trio:
I chose this one because they were tofu pockets, I never eat these in Japanese restaurants because they just taste sweet.
The ones here were different because they were filled with goodies.
Three all veg yuba tacos filled with roasted pumpkin with cream cheese, eggplant with yellow miso and porcini mushrooms with onion cream.
This was really fun biting into all these yummy fillings especially the porcini mushrooms with onion cream which had a delicious crisp crunch to it.
Cantonese steamed fish:
This was steamed sea bream, green onion lime sauce, grated ginger, carrots, cucumber, homemade soya sauce with DC's healthy rice mix in a seaweed wrap.
The fish was so silky and the green onion lime sauce looked so gastronomique.
The only thing I was not expecting was chili because it didnt say there was chili on the order form and it was no ordinary chili either, it was extremely hot chili!!
The green lime sauce had so many tastes to it that you cant get enough of it.
Apart from the chili, it was so delicious, there was mentaiko on top of the rice roll.
After finishing the salad I knew I was still going to be hungry, but on the napkin it had a quote "eat 80% full and you will have a happier and healthier life" which is agreeable but since it was so delicious it was a bit hard to agree because I WANT MORE BEAUTIFOOD!!!
