The dinner has been exceptionally good way beyond our expectations! The food was impeccable, and Dobee explained each dish very well. We’re expecting good food but Dobee was also an amazing story teller. Me and my friends had an enjoyable night. We’d find Dobee again for another occasion!

第一次吃廚師Dobee煮的越南菜在我朋友家,上完冷盤已經決定要邀請Dobee到家裡煮生日餐,上星期六下午廚師Dobee下午4:30準時到達開始準備晚餐的工作,7:15準時開餐,Dobee細心介紹他精心炮製的每一道菜和如何搭配它的醬料,雖然我是第二次吃,但是我覺得還是有驚喜,每一道菜不但擺盤漂亮,味道更是一流,特別是焗蜆,雖然蜆比較小,但是每一只蜆上灑上腰果碎和香菜一起焗,令到蜆不但香,鮮,甜,還有脆的感覺,口感非常的好,最喜歡的煎元朗豆腐加自制蝦醬,味道一流⋯⋯晚餐的份量足夠,大家都吃得勁飽,廚師Dobee高超的廚藝令到我哋渡過了一個開心的晚上!

Another amazing dining experience with Chef DoBee.

We had “Art of Chilli” menu this time and it’s wonderful. Chef DoBee is professional and accommodating as always. Some of my family members can’t take spicy food, he tailored the less spicy version for us without affecting the flavours.

All the dishes on the menu are mouthwatering. The Lemon Butter Wings, Drunken Foie Gras, Cajun Shrimps, Chorizo & Basil Clams, Lamb Cutlets, Beef dishes…we love them all!

Thanks Chef DoBee again for this unforgettable dinner :) Highly recommended!

Chef DoBee was very friendly, efficient and made us a very enjoyable meal. He was very responsive to messages and requests. We chose the Art of Chilli menu but because 2 guests don’t eat spicy, he went to the trouble of preparing non-spicy versions of the menu so we could enjoy the menu too. Everyone enjoyed the food a lot and the menu was very interesting using different types of chilli/spices to achieve different ranges of spice and flavours.

Incredible dining experience.
Chef DoBee is professional, knowledgeable and also very friendly. We had My-Vietnamese Mother-in-Law Recipe and it’s amazing. All the dishes are delicious, while the Beef Pho is definitely the highlight of the night. The beef broth is clear and flavorful, matched perfectly with the melt-in-your-mouth aged beef. Thanks Chef DoBee for this unforgettable Vietnamese dinner :)
Highly recommended!

You couldn’t never go wrong with Chef Dobee! Great food, excellent presentation and super nice personality! Dinner of 13 and I don’t know how he could manage it but he serves everything perfectly and the whole dinner was superb! Basically, you could just leave the kitchen and Chef Dobee is able to turn everything magical. i am so grateful to have him for my father’s birthday and i fully recommend Chef Dobee to anyone of you for your next special occasion!

I had a wonderful night with my husband in celebrating Valentine's Day. We are lucky enough to have chef Dobee preparing his beef omakase menu for us. The menu was full of surprises and the taste was unbeatable. We love the creativity and the presentation a lot!! The beef bikini was my favourite dish, absolutely outstanding. Looking forward to have our next encounter with chef Dobee!!

DoBee是一位非常健談的廚師。他說話風趣,光是在準備食物時,已不忘跟我們互動,向我們介紹部份食材及其製作方法。就在我們喝酒談天的期間,他已經預備好第一道前菜:Botan Ebi | Cajun | Blood Orange。牡丹蝦味道鮮甜,肉質軟糯,很配我們自家準備的日本清酒。

下一道菜是Hokkaido Jumbo Scallop | Saffron | Butternut Squash。帶子被一片燒過的檳榔菜覆蓋,中間還有一小塊煙肉。帶子肥大,煮得剛剛好,很鮮甜。配上呈氣泡形態的南瓜湯,感覺新奇,口感輕盈,南瓜味非一般濃郁!各人都愛上了這南瓜湯,紛紛多添了一次。放下刀叉後,再呷一小口白酒,享受。

友人早於晚飯前已開了瓶紅酒,讓它充分透氣,為了配搭接下來的芝士﹑火腿及和牛。第三道菜是Brioche I Italian Truffle I Camembert I 36 months Jamón Bellota。光看樣子,完全沒法想像它有多美味。烘烤過的多士,表面舖滿燒灼得焦脆的芝士,中層夾著伊比利亞火腿,混和著濃濃的黑松露香氣,非常鹹香惹味,跟紅酒真的是絕配。

然後是今晚的高潮,主菜U.S. Wagyu Zabuton | 7-Days Dry Aged | Sichuan Pepper | Apple-wood | Balsamic。廚師DoBee從廚房拿出一個金屬盒子,在眾人面前打開,一陣煙燻的氣味瞬間從盒子中傳出,是用蘋果木煙燻美國和牛。肥瘦適中的和牛鮮嫰多汁,光吃已經非常美味。但不得不提的,是旁邊的川椒汁。原來中式的川椒汁,跟和牛是非一般的匹配,這讓我們都感覺很驚奇!

由於有友人不吃牛肉,DoBee特地為她準備了N.Z. Lamb Cutlet | Sichuan Pepper | Apple-wood | Balsamic,很貼心。友人回說羊仔架沒有膻味,多汁,脂肪分佈均衡。我也知道DoBee從不讓人失望。

吃到這裡,各位都已經覺得飽。但DoBee繼續捧來一碟飯,Akita Rice | Abalone | Uni | Ponzu,還附上一碟辣椒油。因為這碟特辣辣椒油,才勉強吃得下。當然,鮑魚和海膽是十分鮮甜的。

輪到甜品登場,真的覺得既興奮又開心!47% Rum Baba | Pina Colada Crème,
充滿濃郁雲尼拿香氣的忌廉,口感幻滑,即使已經飽到上喉嚨,仍然忍不住一口接一口,把整份甜品都吃光。

最後,DoBee端來一碟自製的小熊作為禮物,為今晚的飯局作結。小熊是用咖啡﹑清酒及梅酒製成的。這晚,我們飲飽食醉,真的很滿足。非常感謝DoBee為我們精心炮製的美食,下次有機會一定會再預約DoBee的!
