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
