Fish and Meat

Despite of the myriad of exquisite Cantonese foods and unique local Hong Kong eateries, sometimes we crave our Western (Italian & American) food. Yeah, we are kind of spoiled from NYC's diverse selection of cuisines. As we heard great reviews on Fish & Meat, we decided to try it out while catching up with our girl friend, Hazel! It's a perfect spot to grab drinks in LKF afterwards.
Sea Urchin Toast (HK $320 = US $41)
Walking into the dimly-lit, trendy, urban restaurant, we were greeted by the friendly host and guided to our rustic wooden table with a little pot of green. As we submerged into the restaurant, we felt like we were taken aback to a local farm as Fish & Meat focused on using fresh local produce by serving fresh seafood, making homemade pasta and delivering farm-to-table cooking. 
Soft Duck Egg Raviolo (HK $125 = US $16)
Elderflower Fizz (HK $80 = US $10)

Starting the meal, we shared the sea urchin toast and duck egg ravioli. Generously garnished with fresh sea urchin, salmon roe, cress, and spread with cauliflower cream, every bite of the toast was filled with rich flavors and exquisite textures. With a few words in-between, the dish was soon cleared. Moving on to the next enjoyment, it was the duck egg ravioli. The moment Flora cut open the ravioli, she was surprised by an overflowing yellow yolk. The combination of the soft yolk, smooth ricotta cream, burnt sage butter, and smoky pecorino cheese created a unique taste and texture making it absolutely memorable. Loved the rich buttery and salty flavors. 
Fresh Squid Ink Linguine (HK $385 = US $50)

For the main entree, we chose the fresh squid ink linguine paired with sea urchin and red carabineros prawns and spiced with chili and salmon roe.  The al dente linguine was mixed in with a generous amount of sea urchin chunks offering a rich, creamy texture and topped with two large bouncy prawns bestowing the dish with more flavors and textures. Though the pasta was creamy, it wasn't too heavy. Greatness!

Lastly, a dark chocolate lava cake complemented with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream was delivered to our table as a complimentary dessert! What more can we ask? Free dessert = love! The warm chocolate fondant was rich and bold but not too overly sweet. 

Our night was well spent at Fish & Meat as the service, ambiance, and food exceeded our expectations (though it was more on the pricy side because you can easier find something similar in NYC with more affordable prices.) For HK, it's a restaurant we would recommend! We love the ambiance: cozy, romantic, and homey while every dish and drink was placed together like a piece of art.
