T.Dining Presents Fresh Culinary Crossovers With Hong Kong Memories


November 22, 2018 | BY Charmaine Mok

From November 26 to 29, three evenings will be given over to five chefs to present their take on their favourite Hong Kong culinary memories

Everybody has a favourite taste memory, and for T.Dining's latest series of dining experiences we asked five chefs in Hong Kong to collaborate on a menu that interprets their own recollections of Hong Kong. Hong Kong Memories, presented in collaboration with Asia Miles, is a creative culinary showcase featuring participating chefs' takes on their beloved local dishes and flavours, reimagined with their signature twists. To add an extra spin, we've brought together chefs with vastly differing backgrounds and specialisms to co-operate with each other—what might a menu of Hong Kong-inspired dishes with Middle Eastern and Japanese influences look like, for example? For this season's events, we enlisted the help of Asher Goldstein (Francis), Joanna Yuen (Nobu), Michael Chan (Sushi Tsubomi), Saito Chu (John Anthony) and Nicholas Chew (Bibo) as they collaborate on a small bites menu that tells a story of Hong Kong like never before—one fusing a diverse spectrum of influences

The dining experience invites guests on a journey to explore different perspectives of local food through a unique cocktail tasting format at our host venue, ZUGORAMA by V-ZUG. See more details of each event below and be sure to get your tickets soon!

November 26: Francis x Sushi Tsubomi

 join chefs Asher Goldstein of Francis (T.Dining Hong Kong Top 20 Best Restaurant 2019) and Michael Chan of Sushi Tsubomi as they collaborate on a small bites menu fusing Middle Eastern and Japanese influences to tell a story of Hong Kong like never before.

One of the dishes Goldstein will bring to the table is Iberico pork with tomato and chilli, inspired by his early memories of jaunts around Hong Kong's local wet markets—pork is not widely eaten in his native Tel Aviv, so the chef had decided to create this dish to cement his place in his adopted city. Meanwhile, Chan decided to use snapper to feature in his signature of sliced snapper with Kumamoto tomato giso sauce—the fish being ubiquitous on Hong Kong dinner tables and, for him, full of childhood memories.

November 27: Bibo x John Anthony x Nobu

On the second night, join chef Nicholas Chew of Bibo, chef Saito Chu of John Anthony, and pastry chef Joanna Yuen of Nobu as they collaborate on a small bites menu fusing French, Chinese and Japanese influences—inspired by the many meals locals tend to eat in a day—to tell a story of Hong Kong like never before. The menu will be divided into categories such as "breakfast" and "afternoon tea" to feature familiar dishes such as pineapple bun, turnip cake and egg tarts—but not as you know them.
