Robert Burns Night @ The Canny Man - (Hong Kong)

  Robert Burns Day is held on the 25th of Jan each year to commemorate their famous poet’s death,  and each year The Canny Man also celebrates this day over 3 days from the 24th to 26th of Jan.  The Set Dinner for 3 Courses is offered at a discount of $188 only,  which is a real bargain and begging for a taxi ride to the front door just to eat a plate of their sheep’s Haggis.  (Old Review:  here )

Scotch Broth -
It’s a little too thin but the aromatics from the celery especially was very strong.  The bread was crispy on the outside edge.  A lovely soup but could be more stew-like.  ~  7/10

Bushmills 10 Years Old Irish Malt – Double Shot $99 in Dram Glass
Said to carry a Floral and Salted Caramel flavour,  I deviated from the Scottish offerings just for testing it out food pairing possibilities.

Smoked Salmon with Onion & Capers on Oatcakes -
Presented neatly with artistic hands who cares about food and looking pretty.   These were adorned with capers,  chopped onions,  equal length looking chives and right proportion of crème fraiche.   Very happy with the delicate preparation behind this dish  9/10

Haggis,  Neeps and Tatties with Gravy -
The organs taste is never strong here,  but it is better than nothing.  The swede mash was smooth and sweet,  the potato mash was not over powered by butter.  Overall this was a lovable dish if it could have more organs taste.   8/10

Pouring some Whisky onto the Haggis,
I just love eating it this way even though the gravy sauce has some of this infused already…
