Fish and Meat, Central, Hong Kong
I have heard wonderful reviews about Fish and Meat, the latest venture from Maximal Concepts who are also behind Blue Butcher and Brickhouse. From memory, it is where Sal Curioso used to be. The restaurant is very cozy and welcoming; I love the polished concrete floors, white-washed walls and rustic wood tables.
Fish and Meat focuses ‘on the best produce and techniques, to deliver fresh seafood, homemade pasta and farm-to-table cooking’. We were here for lunch and the lunch menu consisted of small and large dishes as well as sides and sweets.
We started with some crispy whitebait with lemon aioli. The whitebait was deliciously crispy and the lemon aioli was a wonderful addition. It was so hard to stop at one.
I couldn’t go past the slow cooked Spanish Teruel pork belly porchetta ciabatta / pork fennel sausage stuffing / gremolata. Oh my, one of the nicest sandwich I have had in a long time – the pork belly were incredibly tender, the rocket and the gremolata was a wonderful complement – the lemon zest gave it a nice kick!
The saffron risotto / crispy sea bream / scallop / squid / prawn were deliciously creamy! I loved the colour of the saffron risotto – so vibrant!
The free range warm French chicken salad / pancetta / arugula / cherry tomato / cherry tomato / basil were deliciously light and refreshing. Dragon absolutely loved the chicken and not to mention the croutons!
The cedar prime sirloin steak was cooked to perfection. It was served with celery truffle salad and roasted tomatoes.
We were quite stuffed so didn’t order any desserts, however, I am definitely keen to come back for the dinner menu. I have heard wonderful things about the slow cooked Spanish Teruel pork belly porchetta that I really need to get some in my belly!
