A selection of the city’s top restaurants including Amber, Tin Lung Heen, Aberdeen Street Social, Arcane, Yardbird, Duddell’s, Serge et le Phoque and Tosca will present small plate signature dishes for the event in March.

 

 

These include Hokkaido scallops, sati jelly and avocado from Aberdeen Street Social (above left), Ebisu oyster with seaweed and shallots from Amber (below right), meatballs with egg yolk from Yardbird (above right), Barbecue Pork from Tin Lung Heen, Tiramisu with limoncello from Tosca (bottom left) and Dacquoise almond biscuit with vanilla cream at Serge et le Phoque (bottom right).

 

Expect to see star chefs including Richard Ekkebus from Amber, Shane Osborn of Arcane, Pino Lavarra from Tosca and Matt Abergel from Yardbird at the event. As well as an internationally acclaimed toque, chosen by the Hong Kong chefs, to be announced. Who will it be? Gordon Ramsay? Jamie Oliver? Nuno Mendez? The ubiquitous Ferran Adria?
