With two-storey ceil­ings, stoic stone pil­lars and a splen­did view of Vic­to­ria Har­bour, One Har­bour Road at the Grand Hy­att ho­tel is as grand as they come. Serv­ing clas­sic Can­tonese dishes with a mod­ern pre­sen­ta­tion, the menu is a dizzy­ing tome filled with seafood, poul­try and other lux­u­ri­ous meat- and veg­etable­based se­lec­tions. Although tra­di­tional Chi­nese restau­rants are geared to­wards com­mu­nal din­ing and big plat­ters, at One Har­bour Road many of the dishes can be or­dered as an in­di­vid­ual por­tion—mak­ing it easy for groups with dif­fer­ing palates to get along. There are many must­tries, but the chef-recommended steamed Patag­o­nian tooth­fish fil­let with pre­served vegeta­bles in bam­boo bas­ket stands out in par­tic­u­lar, with its creamy and savoury-sweet notes that re­mind us of a Can­tonese ver­sion of miso cod. Round off the meal with a carb-based dish as per Can­tonese ban­quet cus­toms, with the beau­ti­fully rich Aus­tralian wagyu beef and foid gras fried rice with egg, spring onion and Yun­nan ter­mite mush­room sauce En­joy with a glass of wine from the ex­ten­sive 24-page menu fea­tur­ing tip­ples from around the world.
