Savoring Art Week – #LKFSavoringArt & Gourmets

While all the art functions and galleries are happening around Hong Kong in March, the month of art, Lan Kwai Fong group has delivered the first ever Savoring Art Campaign where they have collaborated with 12 restaurants, including Bread Street Kitchen, across California Tower and Lan Kwai Fong to host a week of art-inspired food. Each dish is solely offered through the best art theme, covering a mix fare of Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Korean to even Sichaunese, and specialties cocktail to enjoy along the meal.

The launch event happens at Sky Garden of California Tower. The participating restaurants all come together to preview their representing dishes and here are some of the best-loved ones.

CE LA VI, helmed by the dessert expert Jason Licker, has brought us a new chocolate bar filled with banana puree in addition to their signature desserts, like the white chocolate junmai mousse and calamansi almond cake.

Fofo, renowned for their Spanish tapas, has made a bite size combination of sweet prawn carpaccio and creamy uni serve atop homemade paella cracker. The sauce is particularly delightful which tastes somewhat similar to cold tomato gazpacho.

Fovea is an interesting half-Cantonese and half-nightclub restaurant, where presents a western twisted white truffle fish maw roll topped with caviar.

The famous Korean modernist Jinjuu also serves up some really cute ice cream cones in two different flavors of strawberry and banana, incorporated with cream, milk, egg, vanilla, jelly beans and chocolate butter.

Some favourites are the homemade burrata cheese from Mercedes Me, creamy and luxurious; fresh oysters from Townhouse, an excellent embodiment of Western ingredients with that of Eastern, such as tom yum kung caviar, Japanese yuzu and bonito.

I reckon this month is already sparkling with merriment. Be sure to check out more on their web page!
