Gratinated Scotland Scallop with Truffle, Yam and Cheese (HK$158/person)
The unique sweet and briny flavours as well as the satisfying firm texture make scallop one of seafood maniacs’ favorites. Selected scallops from Scotland are diver-harvested, instead of being dredged by vessels, these scallops are harvested by hand, creating less damage to the environment and ocean bed. These precious gems of the ocean are crafted by our experienced chefs into culinary art – scallops are baked in shells with cheese and yam, timing is key to get that moist and firm texture. The dish is served with a dollop of black truffle on the surface, hinting the tremendous flavour inherent in this precious gem.

Casserole of Abalone and Chicken with White Peppercorn and Ginger (HK$ 288)
Australian abalones are harvested from the sea floor by hand so as to protect the marine ecology. Quotas are also set each year to avoid over exploitation and to ensure long-term sustainability. Chicken is first marinated and stir fried with white peppercorn and ginger in a heated casserole. Braised abalone is then added along with the rich abalone broth. The seasoning highlights the freshness of the abalone perfectly while the chicken absorbs the umami of the abalone – a dish of multisensory delights that evolves and unfolds with every single bite.
