SOL Committee: Pasta

The mentaiko linguine, previously absent from the menu, made a welcome return. While the new version with cherry tomatoes was enjoyable, we couldn’t help but miss the original recipe with seaweed and daikon. The perfectly cooked linguine had a satisfying texture, and the generous portion of salmon roe added a delightful touch.

While the price of HK$158 for pasta at a cafe may seem a bit high, this dish is worth a try considering the 3-day preparation time. In comparison to version 1.0, the crab cakes in 2.0 are now shaped like crescents. They are non-greasy, with a thin, crispy coating and a generous filling of juicy crab meat.

The pasta sauce, made with Chinese Huadiao wine and various spices, offers a perfectly balanced flavour that is not as heavy as in version 1.0. However, the sauce is slightly too acidic to me (probably due to added lemon juice). The pasta provides a satisfying bite. Overall, it is definitely worth experiencing.

The plate consisted of five crispy and flavourful deep-fried oysters. They were fried to perfection, retaining their juiciness without being greasy. The taste was pleasant, with a nice balance of freshness and oyster flavour.

The thick-cut fries were crispy and plentiful, delivering a satisfying potato taste. However, the amount of carbonara sauce was disappointingly sparse, mainly concentrated at the bottom of the bowl. More cheese and bacon toppings would have enhanced the overall experience.

This is my first encounter with tofu pudding cake and this is surprisingly delicious! The cake comes with a small bottle of brown sugar syrup, perfectly recreating the experience of eating tofu pudding. The flavours of tofu and cream cheese are well balanced. The only thing is that I would prefer the tofu flavour to be stronger and richer. If you are a fan cheesecake, this may not be the best choice.

The flat white coffee at SOL Committee remained consistently impressive. The well-balanced coffee had floral notes and hints of milk chocolate, resulting in a high-quality and enjoyable brew.

The coffee has a stronger concentration compared to others in the market. I believe they use their own house blend with nutty notes. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. The price is also a bit expensive.

A unique twist on the traditional cola, SOL Committee Ma Wan Cola infused cinnamon, orange juice, and lime juice before being blended with soda water. The result was a refreshing and invigorating beverage. However, considering the canned version cost HKD 25, the HKD 48 dine-in price for the same drink seemed a bit expensive.

The hot chocolate mixed well, ensuring a consistent flavor throughout. While it didn’t lack taste, we wished for a richer and more intense chocolatey experience.

SOL Fruit Punch

SOL committee has introduced a new fruit punch drink, reminiscent of a fruity tea soda. The tea base features hibiscus apple tea, fresh blueberries, and honey, while the fruit juice mainly consists of orange and lemon juice. This beverage has a moderate level of sweetness. However, the hibiscus tea flavour tends to overpower the other elements.
