[Neptune Restaurant] Spring Tasting Menu by chef K.K.Chan

In the past, I have only tried Western dishes at the Neptune Restaurant.
Now they have a new Spring 6 course tasting menu designed by chef K.K.Chan available from now until the end of June, featuring sustainable seafood and quality ingredients.
Started with the Four Colour Platter with refreshing “Crabmeat and Avocado Salad”, “Pan Seared Scallop with Yakiniku Sauce”, “Smoked Duck Egg”, and “Sliced Spicy Abalone”.
It was a great start with different flavours to please the palate.
Next was the “Stir-Fried Thai Tiger Prawn with Onion” which is inspired by flavours of Beijing and Huaiyang.
It was sweet and spicy with a garlicky aftertaste.

The “Double Boiled Silky Fowl Consommé with Arisaema Tubes Fungus, Morel, Bamboo Fungus and Peach Gum” was a really light soup with strong unami flavours from the mushrooms.
One bowl isn't enough.
For the mains, “Seabass and Italian Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus on Steamed Egg White and Supreme Pumpkin Soup” .
The egg white base was seriously silky flavoured by the rich pumpkin soup and the seabass and prosciutto were a great pairing.
The meaty mains were “Roasted Kagoshima BBQ Pork & Tea-Smoked French Spring Chicken.
It was the best of both worlds with chicken and pork.
Finished with the dessert platter of “Raspberry Panna Cotta”, “Deep-Fried Sesame Dumpling with Custard”, and the “Manchurian sweetmeat Glutinous Rice Flour Roll with Red Bean Paste”.
The sesame dumpling was evilicious as it was filled wtih liquid custard while the raspberry panna cotta was refreshing.

Chef Chan’s 6-course Chinese dining tasting menu is priced HK$688 per person, plus 10% service charge.
