Valentine's Day at Cru

Update 3/2/10:
Just found out Cru closed down 3 weeks ago! They have a sister restaurant called Jasper's that has a similar menu on 28 Staunton Street. Phone number the same.

Soho has such a great atmosphere at night. It's so nice to walk around all the cozy restaurants and bars. One of my favorite restaurants in the area is Cru Wine & Grill. The food is terrific, the prices are very reasonable, and I like that it is a little bit detached from the rest of bustling Soho.

Haloumi. The combination of bell peppers, haloumi, and eggplant blend wonderfully. It was a bit difficult to cut each bite of this little tower, but managing to get a bite with every layer was so worth it.

Mushroom Risotto. This is probably the only time I would complain that there are a few too many mushrooms in the risotto. This doesn't happen very often at restaurants, but since Cru has pretty generous portions, I guess it isn't too surprising! Apart from this, the dish is great.

The Mars Bar Cheesecake. So heavenly. I don't usually like cheescake because I think it is too heavy. If I do have some, I only take a few bites. This one is so delicious though. Surprisingly it does not taste too sweet either. Very delightful.

Prices are very reasonable at Cru. Many entrees are HKD100 to 200+

44-46 Staunton Street, Central (MTR Exit D1)
Phone number: 2803-2083
