Hong Kong | Nobu, InterContinental Hotel
Designed by the Rockwell Group, Nobu InterContinental Hong Kong features a stunning yet intimate harbour view dining room, bar lounge, sushi bar and private dining room for special events. The design of Nobu InterContinental Hong Kong is inspired by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa's innovative cooking and the imagery of the Japanese countryside where he grew up.
Nobu offers authentic and affordable lunch sets includes doburi set, sushi set, teriyaki sets, etc. I had the popular CREATE YOUR OWN BOX 自選便當午餐 (HK$388), which includes your own selection of 3 cold appetizers, 3 hot dishes, and served with miso soup and rice.
Toro Tataki with Yuzu Miso 霜降燒金槍魚腩刺身配柚子味噌
The toro was tender and flavorful, very refreshing appetizer.
Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño 油甘魚刺身伴南美辣椒
Fresh yellowtail sashimi with a western twist, the spicy Jalapeño pairs well with the juicy sashimi.
Bara-Chirashi 雜錦魚生飯 was so beautiful, but wasn't the portion of the fish a bit too small? Nevermind, as long as it tastes not bad.
Pan-fried Japanese Sole with Shiso Salsa 煎日本鰈魚配紫蘇洋蔥醬
The sole was nicely seared, with a crispy outer-layer. I love the shiso salsa very much, which has a very clean taste yet works well with the fish.
Baked Scallop with Serrano Aioli 焗帶子伴辣味蒜蓉蛋黃醬 was a signature dish as Nobu. The scallop itself was incredibly tenet, the Aioli was a bomb, the entire piece just melted in my mouth and the flavor was heavenly food. The Black Cod Saikyo Yaki 鱈魚西京燒 on the side was nothing outstanding nor special compare to the scallops.
The service was quite good, very friendly and efficient. The view was just breathtaking! Overall, the lovely bento box was worth a try.
