Birthday Dinner at Caprice

Leading a hectic life, I am unable to go blogging these days. Still, I insist on sharing with you this unforgettable dining experience.

There are only four three-Michelin-Star restaurants in Hong Kong and Caprice is one of them. Last week, I finally realized my dream of dining in this impressive French restaurant.




The place glows yellow and oozes refined elegance. The view is gorgeous.



Langoustine Céviché, Sologne Caviar, Cauliflower Cream and Lemon Sabayon 4.5 / 5


Petit Gris Snail Velouté, Chicken Liver Custard, Escargots and Aromatic Parsley Bruschetta 4 / 5




Suckling Pig’s Trotters, Sautéed Atlantic Scallops and Escabèche Vegetables in Warm Dressing 4 / 5




Line Caught Sea Bass, Brussels Sprouts and Carrot Panaché in Curry Infusion 4 / 5



Hare à la Royale, Taglierini Pasta and Crispy Pancetta 4.5 / 5 
It tastes strong and wild. That it took THREE days to make it surprised me. OR

Dombes Quail, Foie Gras and Autumn Vegetables in Natural Jus 4.5 / 5





Caprice Cheese Cellar 4 / 5 - We were invited to visit the cheese cellar in the restaurant. It's pretty cold. The waiter introduced to us different types of cheese patiently. What an experience!














Petits Fours 4/ 5



Texture of Pear and Fennel Pollen 4.5 / 5





Kalingo Chocolate, Tonka Bean and Red Bananas 4.5 / 5

The meal costs each person $1740 + 10% service charge. The price is high, but reasonable. Everything is top-notch and I savoured every moment. Please note that the lunchbox I order in my workplace only costs $18. Like you, I'm just an ordinary guy who has to work around the clock. Nevertheless, I often bear in mind the importance of exploring the world and enjoying life to the full. I wish everyone good health and a beautiful life.

    1. Thank you so much for your visit. Caprice is indeed one of my favorite restaurants. Another one is Pink Salmon in Yau Ma Tei. They are very different, but good in their own ways.

    1. Thanks a lot, Emily. I have been extremely busy with my work too. As for Caprice, it is sad to know that it only has TWO Michelin Stars this year. By the way, do you have a new blog?
