September 25, 2017:  Today, we went to the ubiquitous Pizza Express restaurant for lunch in Shatin.  They have many branches all over Hong Kong including the airport too.  I’ve also passed by this branch before but never tried it.

We were there around 1 o’clock for their lunch set special.  It included a small appetizer, main, and drink.

We ordered the Baked Dough Balls and Salmon Bite as appetizers, the Margherita Pizza and Spaghetti al Granchio as mains, and Dry Ginger (乾薑水) and Lemon & Ginger Tea (檸檬薑茶) as drinks.

The Salmon Bite (三文魚小吃) arrived first and definitely was a small appetizer with two bites of smoked salmon rolled up and some fresh greens.  The greens were indeed fresh and tasted good though.

The Baked Dough Balls (焗麵包球) arrived together with the Margherita Pizza.  The Baked Dough Balls turned out to be nothing special; just small airy buns served with butter.

The Margherita Pizza (瑪嘉麗塔皇后薄餅) was like a personal sized pizza and cut up into three diagonal pieces.  It was super thin crust and the taste was not bad.  I could taste the fresh tomato sauce.

The Spaghetti al Granchio (蟹肉白洒汁意粉) was a small portion too.  There were some shreds of crab meat on it and the portion was a bit spicy.  It was relatively good but not amazing.

Now that I’ve tried Pizza Express, I can cross it off my list!
