Waterfront - Sri Lankan Food - I woke up today dreaming of last night's food at the Waterfront. It was really delicious, served in clay pots, the wait staff wore traditional saris and they had that rarity in Hong Kong - sambal. Oh, and I forgot the hoppers! Light and fluffy, and oh so tasty.
Highly recommended! Can't wait for the next Sri Lankan night.

Hoppers? What hoppers!!!

We probably had to leave too early before they were served, missing them once again, after stuffing ourselves in the narrow in-Waterfront OSC Santa Claus sleigh, a real first in both of our looong lives!
The sleigh was last seen on Main Street, full of children and Santa, surrounded by elves collecting lots of cash for Operation Santa Claus. Reserve it for your next visit, only parked in the Waterfront till end of the year, maybe longer, before it'll be mothballed(?) till next Christmas.

We just loved the food and the company, especially the chicken and fish curries; plus delicious, but spicy tuna balls. We chatted with brand-new, big-surprise manager Robert Lockyer (of One Million Words fame, his first-ever picture in a tie on this website!), new Filipina staff, plus the vivacious daughter of former Waterfront/Island Bar co-owners Dan & Sharon, Sascha, all of them framed by splendidly attired, Sari-ed Waterfront Director Ira (see all of them below).
(No picture of the table full of former and current Waterfront owners and their offspring, sorry.)

I just love these "Typically Lamma!" group shots, where everybody comes from a different country and lives on Lamma these days; happy, cheerful parts of our 70+ (?) nationalities!

And I set a new record running from the Waterfront to the ferry pier! I shot this group shot at 5 minutes before 8pm, when our 2nd-to-last ferry left punctually for Pak Kok. I just made it by a few seconds...

Turkish Pizza House closed down yesterday, unexpectedly, without prior notice even to regulars. No reason known yet.

Hayri Ozen writes on Facebook: "Dear all, Turkish Pizza House has to say Good Bye to u. Thanks for all your support."

It'll become "Lamma Grill Express", according to Lamma Grill!

Christmas Set Dinner @ Jing Jing yesterday. We both just love Marlon's cooking and Joyce's always cheerful presence! They are both what makes us regulars in Jing Jing Bar & Restaurant. We're eagerly awaiting the re-opening of Joyce's Diesel's across the street next year sometime!

The non-standard chestnut gravy sauce and Yorkshire pudding were oh-so-delicious and made for dunking!
Almost perfect appetiser and main course, no idea on how you could improve on these (except to cross-cut the big Brussels sprouts, so they boil softly all through.)

We even liked the flavourful, but light onion soup with croutons and the astonishingly light blackcurrant cheesecake (not pictured).

We'll be back for next Christmas. Still available today, Christmas Day...

Another Sri Lankan Night in The Waterfront!
We liked the last one so much (Sitting in Santa's Sleigh), we might attend again.

Plus an Island Bar Concert next month by a new band, all the way from Australia. Brad's friends?
The Hummers

...and Wendell continues to be the weekly house musician of The Island Bar!

News from Bella Vista:

"Bella Vista is changing its name to "JUST KITCHEN". Basically we're planning to supply Western and Mediterranean foods. Such as kebabs, pasta, salad etc. Of course, drinks too.

We also going to renovate the outside garden. But for CNY we have to delay. Because we ordered in China and it will all arrive after their CNY holidays only. When the garden will be set up it will be a very beautiful and relaxing place for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and drinks, of course.

We'll have a 2-hour "Happy Hour" everyday for draft beer. For the soft opening, we offer all-day happy hours and only buy 1 get 1 free (For draft beer only).

Anyway, we also offering 20 percent discount for Friday opening for all kind of dishes."


Opening drinks tonight, CNY Eve, Fri, Jan 27, 2017:

Just Kitchen has just soft-launched for now, a review and pictures will follow in a few weeks when their garden will be done.

"We've already changed the menu and we are going to set up a lovely garden.

Many Lamma Residents visited us yesterday and we good very nice feedback. We wish to set up a lovely dining restaurant and cafe-bar suitable for families and Lamma residents especially."
