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.

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.
