A basket of bread is served after we ordered the dishes. The bread was incredible, and I loved it so much. Yet, it would be great if the butter is more buttery and with more unique flavours.

The Japanese tomatoes were incredibly fresh and sweet, and the combination with the rich and surprising flavours of the fetta cheese and pistachio puree was delightful. The fetta cheese had a pronounced and creamy taste, complemented by a refreshing hint of lemon acidity. The crispy sourdough bread added a delightful crunch to the dish. Highly recommended!

London cured salmon is a starter at The Continental Hong Kong

The presentation of this dish was average, not particularly impressive. The salmon itself was not outstanding, and it seemed to lack freshness. However, when combined with the beetroot relish and horseradish crème fraîche, it created a unique and somewhat unexpected flavour combination.

The pork belly was cooked to perfection, with a balanced distribution of fat and lean meat, making it an outstanding dish. The mashed potato was exceptionally creamy, providing a rich and velvety texture. The addition of white cabbage added a refreshing and crisp element to this main course. Highly recommended!

The dessert was a delightful surprise! It featured a Taiwanese melon shaved ice as its base, with an intense and sweet melon flavour. The bottom of the cup was filled with deliciously juicy melon pieces, adding an extra burst of sweetness. Highly recommended!

The Continental: Review (A-La-Carte Menu)

From the a-la-carte menu, we ordered steak tartare, and roast breast of duck.

The portion of beef tartare was decent, and the seasoning was good, resulting in a rich flavour. However, it was unfortunate that there were a few chewy bits of tendon that affected the overall texture. Accompanied by bone marrow toast, which was perfectly toasted and fragrant, although it was slightly greasy.

The duck breast had some juiciness to it, but there were a few chewy parts, and the flavour could have been more pronounced. The spinach and potatoes served as accompaniments, and they paired well with the sauce and duck breast, making each bite enjoyable.
