The menu at Roots in Wan Chai (not to be confused with the new Root restaurant in Central) is just one page long, and lists only four snacks, five starters, five mains and three desserts. But we had a hard time deciding what to order because so much sounded tempting.
A snack of shrimp toast with house pickled onions and salmon roe (two for HK$88) was up first. We loved this dish which featured crunchy toast, and about as much salmon roe as minced shrimp paste. The tomatoes in the Yuen Long heirloom cherry tomato salad (HK$88) had been peeled, and were sweet and refreshing.
