Hot New Bites to Try Out This November
With a new month comes new inspiration! Let’s explore the world of flavours that Hong Kong’s newest spots have to offer. Here’s a handful of restaurants that are well worth exploring this November.
Tribute to Bacchus, the menu stems first from the wines while the dishes, by consultant chef Laurent Varachaud and head chef Mickael Messina, have been created to complement the intricacies of each wine pairing. It bridges the culinary cultures of the East and West by elevating French classics with an Asian touch inspired by their chefs’ travels around Asia.
