Hairy Crab season is upon us and while there are many menus at numerous Chinese eateries around the city serving up the much coveted delicacy, we were eager to go another route and sample Gin Sai Japanese Restaurant's Crab Temptation menu. Gin Sai's menu features a variety of different crabs including Hairy Crab, Taraba Crab and Zuwai crab, prepared in a modern Japanese setting. Favourites off the set menu included their light and refreshing starter of Araba crab meat and caviar with persimmon mixed with bean curd, their fragrant grilled hairy crab shell, their crab claw with sea urchin tempura and their hot pot served with Taraba crab and vegetables. An ideal seasonal menu for crab lovers like ourselves. Pair everything with the recommended sake and be prepared for a satisfying and luxurious meal.

His recipes are a fusion of classic and modern, and show not only his experience from his Hawaiian roots but techniques he picked up from his impressive resume. Favourite dishes included the beautifully presented and fresh Sicilian Red Prawn Carpaccio with black truffle caviar, yuzu and croutons, the healthy and flavourful Hawaiian Hearts Of Palm with red quinoa, endive, figs, pumpkin and black garlic and the insanely delicious House Made Black Ink Udon with Spanish prawn, scallop, shiso and gremolata.

The menu not only features creative recipes but great quality produce and plenty of attention to detail. Each bite was bursting with flavour and kept us wanting more.

We have always loved watching Gordon Ramsay's foodie reality TV shows and were extremely excited to hear he was transporting his famous London eatery, Bread Street Kitchen, to the LKF Hotel. The vast venue celebrates modern warehouse design with a slight retro feel, and creates the ideal lively ambiance for eating and drinking. We loved the modern British menu full of nostalgic favourites from the UK and were very impressed with their impeccable service staff who were friendly and efficient. Favourite dishes off the menu included the refreshing, Sea Bass Carpaccio with avocado, horseradish and ginger, the tender and flavourful Honey Glazed Beef Short Ribs with pomelos, scallions and sesame seeds, the melt in your mouth Slow Roasted Dingley Dell Pork Belly with spiced apple puree and brioche garlic crumbs, and their Traditional Shepherd's Pie with braised lamb and potato puree. Every dish was full of fresh, quality produce and utilized a modern twist on many of our favourite classic recipes. Bread Street Kitchen & Bar is a perfect date night spot and somewhere to celebrate with friends. A definite Hungry Hong Kong favourite and we can't wait to go back for more.
