Hokkaido Sea Urchin, at Amber

Michelin-star dining

No one really needs an excuse to dine at Amber – one of Hong Kong’s favourite two-Michelin-starred restaurants – but if they did, the new Amber Classics Menu (HK$2,398) is it. Available at lunch and dinner, the six-course menu comprises a collection of the restaurant’s signature dishes selected from the last 12 years. “We have created Amber Classics as a unique opportunity for our loyal guests to experience how Amber has continuously evolved and moved forward,” says Culinary Director, Chef Richard Ekkebus. Highlights include Ekkebus’s most beloved Hokkaido sea urchin in lobster jell-o, with cauliflower panna cotta, Schrenki-Dauricus caviar and crispy waffles.
