Three world-class pop-up restaurants arriving this fall

Not content with hosting just one visiting F&B concept this fall — MO Bar’s popular Bar High Five pop-up — The Landmark Mandarin Oriental is stepping up their dining game in a big way. The property has just announced plans to welcome not one, not two, but three exciting gastronomic pop-ups in the coming months.

Kenji Gyoten
Sushi master Kenji Gyoten is coming to Hong Kong.

First to arrive will be three-Michelin-star sushi master Kenji Gyoten, who will be showcasing his meticulous hontegaeshi (hand flip) technique of Edomae nigari, with rice especially sourced from a region in Kyushu, Japan. The pop-up will take place from 17 to 23 October 2016, and will feature a replica of chef Gyoten’s bijou Fukuoka restaurant with an omakase lunch (HK$3,500 per person) that includes 5 appetisers, 11 pieces of sushi, and a dessert of seasonal Japanese fruit. The omakase dinner (HK$4,500 per person) comprises seven appetisers, 12 pieces of sushi, and a similar dessert made with seasonal Japanese fruit. The choice of ingredients will change daily, with the goal of serving diners the finest market-fresh seasonal produce.

clove club
Scottish chef Isaac McHale of London’s famed Clove Club.

Arriving from 24 to 26 October is London’s famed Clove Club — winner of The Highest New Entry on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list — with a promise from Scottish chef Isaac McHale to bring a unique supper club pop-up experience that features unconventional, flavoursome tasting menus including his signature ‘raw sea bream plum stone vinegar & horseradish’, chestnut and oyster broth with wild Scottish seaweeds & Petrossian Caviar, and the dry-aged Challans duck served in three ways — a favourite of LMO’s culinary director Richard Ekkebus. Priced at HK$3,688 per person, the meal will begin with a Champagne cocktail reception including four snacks, followed by an eight-course meal. Pairings with six wines or non-alcoholic beverages will also be served.

LMO popup
Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez will collaborate with Amber’s chef, Richard Ekkebus.

Last but certainly not least is an exceptional new entry in the Friends of Amber dining series: a two-night-only Four Hands Dinner (HK$3,488 per person)  featuring acclaimed Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez (of Central Restaurante), who will partner up with Amber’s chef, Richard Ekkebus. The duo will concoct a surprise menu comprising of four snacks and a eight-course menu, bringing together Amber’s contemporary French cuisine with Martinez’s unusual indigenous ingredients sourced from the jungle, desert, mountains and sea of Peru. Guests will also be taking home a signed copy of the Peruvian chef’s new monograph (published by Phaidon), which is all about the chef and his celebrated work.
