Jack's Terrazza Ristorante (Wan Chai)
Previously Jack's Terrazza used to be located at Brim (Sanlitan) which was really far away for me, but now they are located right in the commercial area of Wan Chai.
It is upstairs with a nice balcony which allows dining on fine days, and on rainy days you can book the tables with the swinging benches.
Here was what we tried:
Involtini Di bresaola alla noci:
Rolls of bresaola, asparagus and goats cheese with hazelnut sauce
This was a strong starter, delicious crunchy asparagus wrapped in air-dried, salted beef complemented with pungent goats cheese.
Insalata Di arugula con tonno scottato
Seared tuna served on a bed of arugula salad tossed with cherry tomato in a lemon herb dressing.
The tuna was seared just right with delicious black pepper rubbed on the surface paired with grassy argula leaves.
Risotto ai fruitti di mare
Risotto with assorted seafood in a lobster cream sauce
A filling but light dish of risotto in creamy rich lobster sauce that was al-dente.
When the second half was just about to be served, we had refreshingly cool lemon sorbeto preparing our palettes for the mains.
Pollo tagliato All'Erbe
Roasted game hen with herbs and parmesan cheese
The game hen was perfectly roasted and the chicken breast was still tender and juicy and the deliciously flavoured chicken skin was infused in its own juices.
Sogliola intera fritta
New Zealand whole sole pan fried served in a lime butter sauce with half roasted potatoes and garden vegetables
This was my favourite because the lime butter sauce was nice and tangy.
It was a simple pan-fried sole which I would always buy in the UK and cook like that.
Ossobucco alla milanese
Braised veal shank in a red wine tomato sauce, served with polenta
The veal shank could have been softer and the polenta was a bit oily so this is the only dish that need improvement.
Blueberry cheesecake, Gelata all cassata, tiramisu
The Gelata all cassata was just dreamy, it was like a big truffle chocolate in icecream form dusted in velvety cocoa which was not too sweet.
