Musings of a bon vivant in Hong Kong

Krug Room x WOM guide

Leave a comment

I know this isn’t a regular dinner, but I had to at least post these pictures up, should anyone feel that they want to immerse themselves in the world of ‘progressive molecular gastronomy’. You may remember that back in August a group of us were fortunate enough to be invited to a wonderful night of Krug champagne tasting at 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana, hosted by the WOM Guide. The prize for our write-up efforts for that evening was a private Krug Room dinner for 12 and thanks to the very generous winner (thank you again Hong Kong Fashion Geek!), our entire foodie gang were all invited to this special dinner.

I’d been extremely curious about The Krug Room for a long time so I was very excited about this evening. The Krug Room at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel offers a unique dining experience for up to 12 diners, serving 10-14 courses along with a Krug champagne of the diners’ choice. The intimate confines of the room allows diners to also watch the goings-on in the kitchen and see the culinary team whip up their creations.

Unfortunately, I’d literally just landed back in HK from London (a mere 2 hours before the dinner) and was severely jet-lagged which meant that I really struggled to keep my eyes open! A flute of champagne semi-solved the problem, but my brain wasn’t equipped to deal with the intricacies of the menu so it means that I have little or no detail for each course! The only thing I can say is that the desserts were very cool, especially the ‘Breakfast’ and the flamboyantly presented ‘Krug on the Moon’. Enjoy the photos!
