Tucked away from all the crowds and noises in Wan Chai hides A.O.C on McGregor Street, which was formerly known as Le Café Winebeast and has recently had a makeover. This sister restaurant of Le Bistro Winebeast continues to serve authentic French dishes with very affordable prices.
We started off the brunch with the famous French Fines de Claire No.4 Oysters (HK$98) as appetizers. The six freshly-shucked oysters were briny and fresh. We paired the oysters with a bottle of white from Domaine du Salut (HK$99).
The beef tartare that came after totally won our hearts. The 120g Charolais Steak Tartare (HK$138) is finely chopped and well proportioned, topped with a quail’s egg and is served with roast potatoes and salad.
To round up the lovely light brunch that we had, we ordered the Rum baba with pineapple and chantilly cream (HK$78). Just the appearance of the baba alone is already appealing enough to excite my sweet tooth!
We love how A.O.C serves quality and authentic French dishes at a very affordable price range. The restaurant itself might be tiny, but the ambiance is casual, intimate, and cozy that you just want to sit here and sip your wine, hiding from the crowds all day on a weekend.
