Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Editor’s choice -

e Comp­toir is ce­ment­ing its po­si­tion i n Hong Kong as one of the l ead­ing t astemak­ers i n food and de­sign, kick­ing off 2015 with three i mpres­sive open­ings, in­clud­ing Hot­shot and The Ocean. Tri i s its Ba­li­nese-in­spired restau­rant, ap­pro­pri­ately lo­cated on the edge of beachy Re­pulse Bay with a dis­tant glimpse of the ocean be­yond. In­side,de, nat­u­ral woods, bam­boo and cool stoness are used to cre­ate a slice of na­ture i n the buil­did­ingng that is The Pulse, done up fan­tas­ti­cally by Bal­lii--based firm Ibuku, which spe­cialises i n “lux­ury bam­boo­boo de­signs.” Once you es­cape the steel and glass en­vi­rons of the com­plex and step into Tri, it’s all too easy to forget about the city out­side.

The world of Tri is cre­ated con­vinc­ingly and with­out cut­ting cor­ners. Tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese ob­jects are fash­ioned into quirky de­sign de­tails and seam­lessly blended into the space. The lo­tus-shaped bam­boo pods in the main din­ing room ap­pear to float serenely in pools of wa­ter, while a semi-pri­vate room fea­tures a wall fea­tur­ing re­pur­posed tra­di­tional batik cop­per stamps.
