Emporio Antico Revisited

The last visit to Emporio Antico, I was really impressed with their executive lunch set. This visit in Hong Kong, I managed to have the chance to try their new and improved executive lunch set.

Starter

Roasted vegetable salad – squash/carrot/pomegranate/spinach/walnut/citrus

The overall combination of the different legumes with a simple olive oil dressing was really tasty. Crunch was provided by the walnut and pomegranate. The surprise was the really tender baby spinach that was used. A really solid salad.

Market green salad – smoked salmon/red wine vinaigrette

Very proper, no surprises.

Mains

Fusilli carbonara – bacon/peas/parmesan cheese

L2M-HK-EMPIRICO-4

I really liked this carbonara and the taste was enhanced by the used of thick bacon and shimeiji. When was impressive was the amount of carbonara sauce that was given.

Argentinian grass fed sirloin – beetroot/sweet potato/pepperberry jus

The beetroot mash and the grilled sweet potato were the highlights of the steak. The sirloin was medium but it was more medium rare but in a good way. Would love a bit more of the au jus.

Dessert

Cheesecake – mixed berry compote/berries

Tasted like Cheesecake Factory, good but commercial.

Berry trifle – whipped cream/strawberry/raspberry/blueberry

Very rich, too heavy for lunch, so I have to wash it down with espresso coffee.

They have refined the lunch menu to 3 courses. Many of their classics like sous vide 63˚ eggs and mushroom veloute with truffles were not available. The service remains very good.
