A great cozy place on the corner for fine dining

I was lost on what to eat in Tsim Sha Tsui when I remembered that No.8 Minden Avenue had quite a few Western restaurants which is only half minute's walk from the MTR Station & Nathan Road.

Cozy corner stuck out when I crossed the road because it was on the corner with a lovely pastel blue and white wooden front.

At the corner of the window, there were cookies for sale which are made by them.

Cozy Corner had a nice French brasserie touch to it which made me decide to dine there.
I was greeted with my a nice selection of teas by Fortnum & Mason when I was waiting to be seated.

Inside, the lighting was dimmed and they had elegant crystal lights so it was quite romantic and classy.


I loved the white chairs, European wallpaper and chair railings.


After settling down I was given a menu which had so many choices making it hard to decide but the staff were professional and helpful to assist me on what to order.

We were given a bread basket after we ordered.

Bread basket: 
The bread was warmed and it was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
It was a cold day and the butter that was provided was spreadable which was really good.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Fortnum & Mason Earl grey Tea: 
Then came the tea because I love starting the meal with tea.
The Earl Grey was fragrant and natural with a hint of citrus aftertaste.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Iced cappuccino: 
I didn't try the iced cappuccino, but the foam cap was really silky and light with a hint of sweetness.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Crab meat and avocado salad $138: 
This was crab meat mixed with Mesclan greens with crunchy cubes of cucumber in it which gave it more dimension while the sweet Balsamic dressing made it appetizing.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Oven baked onion soup served with cheese toast $56

The soup was really warming on a cold day with a piece of crispy baguette topped with cheese and the onion soup was sweet packed with onions.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Cream of mushroom soup $82
The mushroom soup was really creamy with fresh slices of mushrooms in it garnished with a fresh flower on top.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Grilled Okinawa Kagoshima A5 cattle thick cut rib eye steak (8oz) $560 (seasonal price) served with truffle demi glace and asparagus.
The beef was juicy and soft with an even fat marbling paired with my favourite French beans and asparagus.
The beef tasted great with or without the truffle demi glace gravy.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Rack of lamb served with rosemary and asparagus and honey mustard sauce $335
This was my favourite because it quite a big lamb rack with lots of juicy and supple meat attached that was rubbed with lots of rosemary herbs on the surface.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Lemon cheesecake $58
To finish off, had the lemon cheesecake which had a prominent lemon flavour that was not too strong and you could taste the cheese in it as well.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Tiramisu with alcohol $68

As well as the cheesecake, the Tiramisu was divine because the sponge in the middle was soaked with alcohol and every spoon of it was moreish.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
After an amazing night, it was time to go and we were told that we could get a discount through Facebook which my friend did.
To summarize, this is a great place for special occasions and high tea which I shall try next time because the menu says that they have clotted cream with scones!!
