We were on the hunt for a swift light brunch, fortifying ourselves before heading into the melee of human life that is Mongkok. Liberty Exchange’s truffle mushroom soup with chive and enoki seemed to fit the bill as a starter. One of the bartenders checked with the kitchen: it would be fine. He explained it was made in house with a mixture of three types of mushroom which gave it a depth of flavour.
We followed this with a truffle egg white omelette with forest mushrooms with green asparagus. Whilst it was fairly bland, it was simple and didn’t contain ingredients that might suffer from cross-contamination. Like the adjoining bar that is reviewed elsewhere, the restaurant has a outlook across a busy walkway between the Exchange Square, IFC building and Chater House and the adjoining bar can be a lively place, especially when major sporting are events are screened.
Liberty Exchange are also able to prepare fresh lime soda with the sugar syrup on the side, giving you control over its sweetness – a definite tick in the box for that and an indication that they don’t use cordials that might contain non g-f flavourings. they are also able to mix a mean mojito.
Liberty Exchange Kitchen and Bar’s central location, not far from the Airport Express in the ground floor of the nearby IFC building, is also a definite plus.
