Once in a while I chanced upon new restaurants entirely unplanned and was majorly surprised by my finds. HABITŪ Ristorante the Garden at Lee Garden was one of those instances. I was there the day before for a business meeting over coffee and saw an impressive garden – a rooftop terrace of sort – and I returned the next day for a proper experience.
The impressive rooftop garden seating area. I was charmed the moment I saw it the day before.
The whole place felt like Christmas.
The drinks were dainty; but more show than substances, to be honest. Maybe I was just a little dissatisfied how the foam was much more than the actual drink.
The high tea set. Funny story: My friend and I were half way through the set when strong wind gusts made the tent canopies flapped violently. Rainwater from an earlier shower splashed all around us… and onto our table. Of course we were upset. But the crew was quick to move us to a safer place (oh, the sun was grand that day!) and – tada! – replace our tray with a brand new set.
That’s what I call service. Now I have another rooftop hangout spot to choose from in Causeway Bay!
Pick of the Week is a new series of reviews on places rather than food. Eating out can be about the experience, too!
