Con­ti­nen­tal Crav­ings

Swire Restau­rants are slowly but surely carv­ing out their own niche in the des­ti­na­tion din­ing scene. The Con­ti­nen­tal (4/F, Pa­cific Place, 88 Queensway, Ad­mi­ralty, 27045211) is a solid stand­alone res­tau­rant, now sport­ing a brand new look to match a re­vamped menu. Lo­cated at Pa­cific Place with a spa­cious out­door din­ing pa­tio strung with fairy lights (great for pri­vate par­ties with a DJ booth and por­ta­ble bar), The Con­ti­nen­tal’s new ap­pear­ance boasts hues of emer­ald green and ch­est­nut brown, evok­ing a cozy vibe that’s ac­cen­tu­ated by a re­fined menu by ex­ec­u­tive chef Joey Ser­gen­takis. From sal­ads to seafood dishes, roast meats and char­cu­terie, the menu is pretty wide­spread, but you can taste the best the kitchen has to of­fer with the six-course tast­ing menu ($680). Stand­out dishes in­clude the creamy taiy­ouran egg and black truf­fle car­bonara and the Brit­tany blue lob­ster with risotto and tar­ragon gratin—a fla­vor-packed seafood feast with pieces of sweet, suc­cu­lent lob­ster meat basted in more shell­fish fla­vor from the creamy grains. After din­ner, re­fresh your palate with a tempt­ing se­lec­tion of sweets, from cho­co­late mousse to a per­fectly bal­anced vanilla cheese­cake with or­ange sor­bet and frozen meringue.
