I recently dined at Felix, The Peninsula Hong Kong’s chic restaurant serving modern European cuisine.

I tried out The Felix Five Senses Art Experience menu curated by Chef Juan Gomez (in honour of the Art Month). The menu highlighted the five senses — see, hear, taste, smell and touch. I started off with some semi-dried tomatoes and almond vanish ravioli with Jerusalem artichoke cream and parmesan sablé. The colours from the subtle artichoke cream and vibrant tomatoes brought an interesting contrast to my plate. Then, I had crispy crab pillows followed by pan-fried foie gras complemented by glazed plum balsamic and red wine loaf bread. The foie gras was made to perfection and the crab pillows were light and crunchy.

Next was chargrilled Iberian pork pluma, elevated by the earthy flavours from the Felix charcoal and ashes. I ended with white chocolate textures, whisky chocolate ganache and verbena sorbet that suited my palate well.

Verdict: An ideal place to enjoy European delicacies with sweeping vistas of the skyline.
