In the Mood for Love

Last visited 26.05.17

A fan of director Wong Kar-wai?

This Thai restaurant’s name In the Mood for Love (화양연화) derives from a 2000 Hong Kong film, and I simply agreed to visit this restaurant by its name when my friend suggested it. Its interior has a nostalgic or vintage vibe, with Wong Kar-wai’s movie posters on the wall.

That night we just ordered pad Thai and salad, due to my ‘always full’ condition we were unable to try other dishes. The salad was really appetising and refreshing, it looked more spicy than its taste. The pad Thai was delicious, but it was very spicy, especially I couldn’t eat anything spicy at all. The one thing I have to criticise is the Thai iced tea, way too milky, the milk already covered the tea flavour, it was the worst I have ever had.

Though it’s not an authentic Thai restaurant, it is still a good place to dine with friends.

喜歡王家衛作品的…

朋友想說一場來到韓國是不是應該吃點傳統韓國菜,我卻說其實不一定非要吃韓國菜然後我們就去了花樣年華。是的,當我一聽到名字,我就喜歡了。花樣年華(화양연화)是一家吃泰國菜的餐廳,名字源於2000年由王家衛執導的香港電影。餐廳不大,都是2-4人的餐桌,店內貼了王家衛的電影海報,有一種懷舊復古的感覺。

當天我們點了Pad Thai和沙律,不知道怎麼搞的我一直處於非常飽的狀態,實在無法嘗試更多菜色。沙律很清爽,酸酸的很開胃,看起來很辣吃還好。反而是Pad Thai很辣,對於不能吃辣的,我覺得非常辣,不過味道不錯,是好吃的。想批評的是他們的泰式奶茶,非常多奶,幾乎沒有茶味,應該是我喝過最差的泰式奶茶。

花樣年華可能算不上是正宗泰國菜,但是一個和朋友聚餐不錯的選擇。
