For classic Swiss treats, there are few places to go in Hong Kong—and particularly spots that feel as cosy and authentic as Chesa. Designed to resemble a chalet, the Swiss restaurant at The Peninsula transports guests to Europe, where imagining the snowy hills outside requires a warming cheese fondue; indeed, it’s an ideal way to start a meal. Share a pot of fondue for two and indulge in the perfectly apportioned basket of chewy baguettes that you envelop in hot, melted cheese. The mains include classics such as rack of lamb or salmon, which are cooked perfectly, well-seasoned and created with quality ingredients, and served with a side of crisp, fresh vegetables. Alternatively, there are often special set menus that highlight Swiss classics. With either option, a glass of Swiss wine from a considered list pairs perfectly. A selection of desserts incorporates the famed Swiss chocolate—the chocolate chalet will delight young and old alike, while the apple crumble, piping hot with sweet apples and a buttery crumble, is also worth the wait. Staff are warm and friendly, and it’s difficult not to have an enjoyable evening in this cute, quirky setting with its comforting yet elevated cuisine.
What to order
- A pot of bubbling fondue is accompanied by a perfectly apportioned basket of chewy baguette that is only enhanced when enveloped in the hot, melted cheese.
- The perfectly pink rack of lamb is rich and juicy; classically prepared and seasoned well, you can’t go wrong.
- Served piping hot, the apple crumble features sweet fruit and a buttery crumble and is well worth the wait.
If you are drinking wine by the glass, be sure to ask staff for recommendations as there are often some additional Swiss-sourced selections not listed on the menu.
