One of Central/Sheung Wan’s well-known spots to go for a meaty meal has recently undergone a makeover in appearance, menu, and service. Formerly Blue Butcher, the renovated Blue – Butcher and Meat Specialist still offers diners a selection of finely sourced meat, now alongside an array of other protein-based options (pan roasted seabass, grilled chicken, etc.) and plenty of lighter starters to choose from. The interior has changed slightly, including a small butcher shop with a selection of meat available to purchase at their mini-butcher shop on the main floor.
I’ve been wanting to try Limewood since it opened, but every time I was in Repulse Bay, the place was packed with people and I couldn’t be bothered queuing. So, I put Limewood high on my “restaurants to try” list this summer and managed to make it out there at around 2:00 pm during the week (a perfect time if you want the place practically to yourself). Limewood is a great summertime city escape: cool, beach-y, and unique decor, along with refreshing, fun, and memorable food and drink.
A few weeks ago Foodie Club teamed up with Maximal Concepts for the first section of their MaxFoodLab challenge: The Ultimate Fast Food Burger. As part of this partnership, Foodie had 90 burgers to give away from Blue Butcher for lunch over three days. I was lucky and quick enough to get a hold of one of these freebies!
