This gem of a neighbourhood restaurant specialising in French-Cantonese cuisine can serve just 22 covers at any one time. Local fresh ingredients sourced from Hong Kong wet markets come alive in Chinese classical dishes reinterpreted "through the lens of French cooking". In the kitchen owner chef Stephanie, who started her career at HSBC before doing stages in St Emilion and the Hong Kong Mandarin Oriental, claims her inspiration was her late grandmother. Try signature shrimp toast with home-pickled onions and salmon roe or local Iberico pork belly with sweet black bean sauce and haricots verts and lotus bulbs. Follow in with a line-caught white fish inflected with chilli and Chinese mustard and a wickedly creamy mash. The short but well selected wine list majors in French and Italian bins including a Gewurztraminer and a Riesling from Paul Blanck in Alsace and, if splashing the cash, perhaps a Barbaresco or Chambolle-Musigny.
