Blue Duck Workshop – Chef’s Soul Cuisine

As some of you may know, we, the Tweedlets are huge foodies and we love trying out new food/cuisines. A few weeks ago, we went to dine at a french cuisine private kitchen: Blueduck Workshop recommended by a passionate chef-to-be friend. Private Kitchens are rather popular in Hong Kong, they are low-profile eating places often in nondescript apartment blocks and sometimes even in residential quarters with no signage. Offering a more personalised service for small groups of discerning diners. Private Kitchens also provide a set menu which changes with the season, depending on what’s fresh in the market. They usually offer a more tailor-made menu for guests (you would have to phone-in and ask) and also for guests with special food requirements. There is no marketing or advertising of these restaurants, and usually it is by word-of-mouth referrals who had a good time with good food handle with love and care.

The building entrance to the Blueduck Workshop is on a narrow alley just off Stanley Street near Luk Yu. Once we arrived, the atmosphere changed from an old dull worn down building to a softly lit homey place with warm tones and a relaxing respite from downtown Central. The décor is like a friend’s apartment, though a bit 90s, with white walls, white paper on the tables and a spacious open kitchen. It offers a fixed dinner menu of six courses ($380per person), and the portions are quite generous. Three appetizers came one after the other, all to be shared home-style. The soup, main and dessert then came individually.
