Hong Kong, 30 November 2016 – As temperatures begin to drop in the 852 and summer becomes all but a distant memory, Cafe Roma has a new menu to brighten those winter blues. Park Island’s favourite beachside restaurant is delighted to introduce a new range of healthy yet hearty dishes in their latest menu update. Led by celebrity chef Jaakko Sorsa, the kitchen team have concocted a number of tasty treats suitable for the whole family to enjoy, including any vegetarians. In addition, the menu update will see the return of an old Cafe Roma classic, as well as a ‘fantasy’ twist on everyone’s favourite comfort food.
At Cafe Roma, the emphasis is all about enjoying a relaxing and fun filled moment with family and loved ones, so it’s no surprise that their appetiser and snack options are designed for sharing. Now, with their new menu update, vegetarians can join in the sharing fun too thanks to the introduction of the Vegetarian Snack Combo Platter (HK$108) . Packed with a selection of popular fried snacks, including fried mozzarella sticks, fried mushrooms, and French fries, complemented by a trio of saucy dips (Tomato Basil, Roma’s Tomato Ketchup, and Jalapeño), there is something to suit all taste buds! The Fried Mozzarella Sticks (HK$78) and freshly-baked Garlic Bread (HK$68) are new menu additions which are also ideal for splitting amongst a group – if you can bear to share that is!
Perhaps the most popular dish at Cafe Roma over the years has been the humble pizza. Loved by even the fussiest of eaters, pizza is everyone’s favourite cheat treat, and now Cafe Roma is making it even better by allowing you to customise the dish to your very own version of perfection. Choose from a range of 20 ingredients such as Hoisin-Roasted Duck, Tiger Prawns, Camembert, Gorgonzola, Leek, and Bell Peppers , to name but a few. Go crazy and build your Fantasy Pizza (HK$148) – the more unique the better!
Moving onto other mains, this season will see the return of an old Cafe Roma classic, Fish & Chips (HK$168) . Made with fresh, crispy-fried Sea Bass fillets, and served with French fries, tangy Tartar sauce and a wedge of lemon, this well-loved British favourite is the ultimate beachside comfort food for a lazy weekend lunch. Sticking to the seafood theme, Cafe Roma is excited to introduce yet another new Sea Bass option in this menu update. This time a Grilled Sea Bass Fillet (HK$178) is served on top of a tasty Porcini mushroom risotto and adorned with delicate sautéed kale and a bell pepper sauce accompaniment – this is best enjoyed with a chilled glass of white wine from Cafe Roma’s extensive beverage menu.
If you fancy something a little lighter, Cafe Roma is also introducing two new refreshing and flavourful salad options: the Roasted Chicken, Pumpkin, Tomato, Mozzarella & Couscous Salad (HK$118) and the Roasted Beetroot, Yellow Beetroot, Quinoa & Blood Orange Salad (HK$108) . Both of these dishes are colourful and packed full of fun textures and delicious flavours – who says healthy eating has to be boring?
Alternatively, for all the meat-lovers out there, prepare to enter epicurean heaven with the arrival of a brand new pulled pork dish: the Pulled Pork Sandwich with Salad & French Fries (HK$108) . Slow-cooked in a smoky barbeque sauce, the pulled pork filling is a surprisingly healthy option, containing fewer calories than its typical beef and chicken counterparts. Cafe Roma predicts that this dish will become an instant winter favourite in the coming months.
No meal is complete without dessert, and in this new menu update, Cafe Roma is introducing the holy grail of sweet treats – the Warm Chocolate Cake (HK$78) . Decadent and oh so moist and fudgy, the richness of the Belgian chocolate is balanced by a side of cooling Mövenpick vanilla ice- cream; this is the chocoholic’s dessert of dreams. If that hasn’t caught your attention then the Apricot Tart (HK$78) certainly will; served with whipped cream and toasted almond flakes, this is one dessert that is definitely worth saving room for!
With the release of their new winter menu, Cafe Roma hopes to bring loved ones together for a gastronomical feast this season. So what are you waiting for? Gather your family and friends and head on down to Cafe Roma for amazing beachside views, excellent service, and top quality, delectable foodie delights!
