[Hong Kong] Chôm Chôm, Vietnamese restaurant in Central
Chôm Chôm is a little Vietnamese restaurant and bar Nestled in Soho district in Hong Kong. The restaurant is really 'low-key' because there's no apparent sign or logo of the restaurant, and we didn't recognize it when we stood by it and checking GoogleMaps. 一直很喜歡吃越南菜，最近來中環soho的Chôm Chôm試試看。Chôm Chôm的門面非常低調，我們跟著GoogleMap走走到了他們家門口都沒認出來。

Very relax ambiance, which is perfect for a drink and some light food after work.
Shrimp & Roast Pork Rice Paper Roll (Vermicelli, Vegetables, Herbs $78)
All the ingredients are very fresh, wrapped in a thin layer of rice paper. The rice paper roll itself was great, while the sauce could be a little bit stronger.
Smoked Eggplant with Crab (Crab, Steamed Egg, Shallot, Spring Onion, Mint, Coriander $108)
This one tastes much better than we expected. The grilled elephant was seasoned after it cooled-it was creamy with a very clean and delicate taste.
Lemongrass Chicken Skewer (Garlic, Spring Onion, Coriander, Lime, Chilli Oil $88)
I'm not a person who flavors skewers those kind of unhealthy 'fast food', but i have to admit that this one was really amazing. With a very nice smell of char-grilled, the chicken skin was grilled to thin and crispy-without any left oil underneath the skin. Inside, the meat was still tender. The whole piece tastes really good with the sauce. (help yourself with the chili sauce on your table to make the taste perfect!)
Caramel Black Cod (Caramel Fish Sauce, Garlic, Shallot, Ginger, Jasmine Rice $158)
Maybe the most disappointed dish of the night. The cod itself was okay, while the sauce was salty to die, even we accomplished it with the rice on the side.
Overall, the signature dishes are worth a try, the food were not bad but not very impressive. It is good to have some drink and snack after work. For Vietnamese cuisine in Hong Kong, i still recommend An Nam.
