Address: Shop 9, 2 Landale Street, Wan Chai
Celebrating Shanghai’s success (2 successful chains), Ôdelice set up roots in the popular food district of Hong Kong; Wan Chai. Neighbors with the popular Butcher’s Club, Ôdelice brings a more casual and simple dining experience to Landale Street.
Modern, chill vibes fill the space, though their hanging lights were set too low; blocking your view and disturbing a good conversation. Ôdelice attempts to appeal to a wider audience with a modern design and simple menu that includes most French staples.
Hot sandwiches, salads, crêpes, galettes, waffles and pasta, fill the menu. Set at reasonable prices and offering less classical galettes like the smoked duck and foie gras.
Not necessarily authentic but not offensive, Ôdelice‘s offerings were certainly not memorable. Their galettes are a far cry from the nearby La Crêperie on queens road, though dessert crêpes showed more promise.
A valiant effort by Ôdelice, but their menu and decor mostly showed a lack of personality. Especially with a growing number of French establishments in the area, Ôdelice desperately needs to bring their “A-game” to compete with internationally renowned chains like Le Pain Quotidian, Kaiser and the local favorite Passion.
Tuna Niçoise Salad
- Seared Tuna, served medium, generous portions and well seasoned.
- Salad was simply a few green leaves thrown together with olives and tomatoes. Meh.
- Great value for a generous portions at $88!
- Creamy and served with an array of vegetable sticks and bread, this is the perfect sharing dish while enjoying a glass of wine!
Smoked Duck Breast, Emmental & Sweet Onion
- Thin and smokey duck crepe, filled with tender slices of duck breast.
- Tasty and probably one of the better dishes of the evening.
Pan-seared Scallops, Melting Leeks, Crispy Bacon & Chives
- Well cooked scallop, topped with a handful of spinach.
- Portions were very small and barely enough to fill-up your stomach!
- Mediocre and nothing spectacular.
Australian Beef Fillet Spaghetti
Trumpet mushroom and black pepper sauce
- Aldente pasta with a creamy peppery sauce.
- Topped with crispy Beef, cooked medium, the tender slices complemented the rich, carbonara-like sauce.
Butter sugar Crêpe with lemon juice (crêpe suzette)
- A steal at $38 and not too sweet, this is a great option for alight dessert.
- Crêpes were also very thin.
Pan-fried Banana, Salted Butter Caramel & Ice Cream
- A crowd favorite that is well prepared. Thin crêpe with a generous drizzle of caramel and a scoop of Vanilla ice cream to counter balance.
- Probably the best dish of the evening!
