Family-inspired Summer Menu @ Maison ES

Cooling off the summer with a refreshing home-cooking inspired menu launched at Maison Es, a beautiful modern European restaurant at Wan Chai Star Street.
Started by having a basket of light and puffy brioche with smooth French butter.

An appetizer comes next, a Japanese-inspired dish creatively made with Hokkaido scallop sashimi in three ways. With uni, nori, puffed sushi rice; it is served with a lovely cucumber and pickled ginger jelly sauce.

Next is a 48-month Spanish bellota ham with compressed melon, chewy tapioca and crunchy pork rinds; and a stunning slow-cooked Japanese abalone serving over a bed of chopped cherry tomato, fregola, plus a final touch of liver sauce blended with mirin and soy sauce on the side.
