www.man­dari­nori­en­tal.com/hongkong Se­creted deep within the Man­darin Ori­en­tal ho­tel is the world’s only Krug Room. Guests are greeted at the Man­darin Grill, and es­corted through a maze of cor­ri­dors to an el­e­gant room that evokes the famed Ori­ent Ex­press train, with views through to the kitchen. Up to 12 guests a night get to em­bark on a culi­nary jour­ney cre­ated by the ho­tel’s ex­ec­u­tive chef Robin Zavou, ac­com­pa­nied by a cu­rated sound­track and Krug cham­pagne, nat­u­rally. The sea­sonal tast­ing menu changes quar­terly, but has fea­tured eel dough­nut that evokes a salt cod cro­quette, and red prawn tartare served Thai style with be­tel leaves. Meat dishes are ac­com­plished, with suck­ling iberico pig fall­ing apart at the touch of a fork, and wagyu beef so de­li­cious that it doesn’t need an over­pow­er­ing pick­led nori emul­sion. The­atre is as much a part of the ex­pe­ri­ence as the food, with well-trained staff adding flour­ish to the evening. An ex­ten­sive wine list is avail­able, but why have any­thing other than Krug?

Hong Kong is the only city in the world with a Krug Room
