The Mar­ket

Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Café review -

Ever since its open­ing, The Mar­ket at Ho­tel Icon has been a leg­end of sorts, as reser­va­tions need to be made at least sev­eral weeks ahead. It’s worth the wait though, as the buf­fet demon­strates the ho­tel kitchen’s strength in of­fer­ing an au­then­tic taste of South-East Asia through its se­lec­tion of gourmet dishes, from a umami-rich laksa le­mak, to sig­na­ture Hainese chicken rice and Sin­ga­porean black pep­per crab. While the se­lec­tion may not be as ex­ten­sive as other ho­tels in the neigh­bour­hood, the qual­ity and ex­e­cu­tion are both top-notch and of­fers lit­tle dis­ap­point­ment. The dessert corner spe­cialises in bite-sized cut cakes and var­i­ous mousses served in petit cups. Duri­anlovers will get an ex­tra sweet end­ing with the café’s sig­na­ture ar­ray of durian cakes, tarts, and pas­tries made with the ever-pop­u­lar Mu­sang King durian.
