Street Meat is emulating a New York style street eating concept in Hong Kong. It does sound fun, but how does it match with expectations? So far this remains an unanswered question as it is still during it’s Soft Openings. I am not always a guinea pig for new concepts - but as it stands, only the final taste will dictate my verdict as a foodie for now?!
Wagyu Beef Bulgogi with Kimchi and Fried Ramen Burger – $68
When this arrived, I was startled by the amount of floury taste the moulded and fried ramen “sandwich” left. It was borderline swallow-able. The Kimchi was good but there was a major lack of Wagyu beef taste to compensate for the spicy vegetables. (But this is only during Soft Opening, so they might need time to improve gradually to retune?) ~ 6.5/10
Wagyu Beef Tongue and Foie Gras Sandwich – $75
With a Korean chili Gochujang based sauce. This was nicer than the previous bun, if not a bit too too smaller in size. The taste was good and the foie gras pate spread was detectable but only just. The bread was toasted a bit soft too. This was good, but not too memorable for now. Personally with food costs perspective wise, this was missing another strip of the same toasted sandwich for the money. But with such high rental costs in Hong Kong, we will all have to put up with it for now.. ~ 7/10
