Autumn 2015 Sensualist Menu
There are many fine dining places in Hong Kong. This is one of the restaurant on the top my list. The menu changes every season. I’ve been wanting to go since summer but could never get a seat. But my dearest managed to book this place to celebrate our monthliversary (has been like 40 something months? lol). This…
restaurant is located near Centarl, in Hong Kong.
The restaurant is a bit of a distance from the MTR Central station. But thanks to the mid-levels escalator. Otherwise all that walking up the hill or the steps with my heels would be a big killer. There are lots of restaurants and pubs/bar here. A lot of foreigners here.
There’s not much you could choose from the menu because it’s a fine-dining menu. There are only 2 options: The less $ and the more $ one.
Trying out the cocktail here. The cocktail on the list is a fusion of the Japanese/Chinese and western cocktail.
The one I ordered was named after a Chinese classic literature.
紅樓夢 Chinese Plum Infused Vodka / Sake / Ume Shu.
There are not many seats in this restaurant.
The bread that was served to us after the first dish was a small cube of brioche. Pretty cute.
The set comes in a course of many dishes. After the amuse-bouche, it’s a series of exquisit dishes.
Marinated hiramasa / cauliflower puree and powder / almond ice / avocado cream / mustard seed / ponzu gelee.
