www.duddells.co Part art gallery, part restaurant and lounge bar, Duddell’s has maintained a multi-purpose space that excels in all three fronts. Taking into account the significance of harmony, the calming interiors from Ilse Crawfod add greenery to the dining space, while decorative brass-patterned windows invite natural light that brightens up the room; Hong Kong-inspired art pieces line the perimeters of the restaurant as subtle references to the restaurant’s commitment to celebrating local heritage. This philosophy extends to the menu, which stays true to blending the old and the new, utilising innovation through incorporating premium ingredients with new techniques. The kitchen manages to maintain the appeal of the classics by reinventing them in new ways, such as barbecued Iberico pork with honey glaze, or a pan-fried scallop with gingerscallion egg whites and black truffle—staples where guests can still see the essence of Cantonese cuisine, preserved by the team’s culinary mastery. Don’t miss the internationally-inspired cocktails, as they are good match to Duddell’s signature dishes, as the selections of artisanal tea blends and fine wines on offer.
