[ Hong Kong Dine Out] The Tate Dining Room & Bar
restaurant is located near Centarl, in Hong Kong.
其實餐廳離地鐵還要走一段，不過還好有 mid-level 的手扶梯，不然這些爬坡還真會讓人吃不消啊.. 還沒吃就更餓了. 其實 mid-level 一路都超多有特色的餐廳和酒吧，在這邊也是可以看到很多外國人。
The restaurant is a bit of a distance from the MTR Central station. But thanks to the mid-levels escalator. Otherwise all that walking up the hill or the steps with my heels would be a big killer. There are lots of restaurants and pubs/bar here. A lot of foreigners here.
There's not much you could choose from the menu because it's a fine-dining menu. There are only 2 options: The less $ and the more $ one.
Trying out the cocktail here. The cocktail on the list is a fusion of the Japanese/Chinese and western cocktail.
The one I ordered was named after a Chinese classic literature.
這邊的cocktail 也是中日西混搭，我點了個很詩意的 cocktail，梅味還真重啊！
紅樓夢 Chinese Plum Infused Vodka / Sake / Ume Shu.
這間餐廳的座位不多。 There are not many seats in this restaurant.
第二次上來的麵包不同，是個小方塊的 brioche. The bread that was served to us after the first dish was a small cube of brioche. Pretty cute.
