Highly recommended! The combination of chicken liver pâté and pickled beets creates a delightful symphony of flavours. The crostini strikes the perfect balance, achieving a delightful crispness without being overly hard. I found myself unable to resist indulging in a few more bites.

The portion distribution is quite unbalanced. While there was a generous amount of pickled beets, I would prefer to have more arugula.
Another thing to note is the excessive sweetness of the oranges. It seems to me that these oranges have absorbed syrup to create such sweetness.

The pappardelle complements the tender oxtail perfectly. The sauce, infused with red peppers and red wine, adds a rich and meaty flavour.
Each strand of pasta is coated in a generous amount of sauce, creating a mouthwatering dish. The overall quality is outstanding, although a larger portion size would be appreciated.
▮ 𝐒𝐞𝐚𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐓𝐚𝐠𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞｜✯ : 7.5 ⭐️
The tomato sauce in this dish tastes balanced, offering a delightful taste of tomatoes without being overly acidic. However, the freshness of the prawns did not meet my expectations.
Nevertheless, the tagliatelle itself was flawlessly cooked, achieving the perfect al dente texture, and coated in a flavourful tomato sauce.

This dessert combining tofu and panna cotta is a delightful surprise. The silky tofu pudding topped with caramel syrup creates a delightful combination of flavours.
Personally I think there was too much caramel syrup on top which makes it slightly too sweet. Nevertheless, the panna cotta strikes a good balance of sweetness, with a rich and silky tofu flavour that slightly overshadows the milk.
▮ 𝐓𝐢𝐫𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐮｜HKD +20｜✯ : 7 ⭐️
This tiramisu offers a delightful blend of sweet and nutty flavours with mascarpone cheese, espresso, and Amaretto liqueur. During our last visit, the tiramisu was dry, but this time it was overly moist, with the alcohol and espresso soaking through. Despite the excess moisture, the mascarpone cheese was light and creamy.
