BINGE Hong Kong – Chi Chi Mothers Day Treats

Dutiful daughter-in-law wants to impress matriach mother-in-law in a spare-no-expense binge? These dangerously delightful venues will do the trick.

If she is a tai tai, she would have already been here for tea with her bling encrusted friends and will nod approvingly at the trouble you have gone though to book the chi-chi–ly chic SEVVA on the 25th floor of the Prince Building. If she is just hard to please, at least she will be wowed by the ambience and the menu for brunch between 11am and 4pm or dinner from 6pm to 10.30pm on both May 8 and 9. Three unique seafood treats await including the Bouillabaisse of King Scallop, Dover Sole and King Prawn with Golden Garlic Baguette (HK$420), Poached Salmon Coated with Black Truffle and Parsley (HK$320) and Stir-fried Boston Lobster and Egg White (HK$780). If she cries fowl, try the alternative a Crispy Duck Salad with Blood Orange, Beetroot and Arugula (HK$260). Also available a varied range of vegetarian dishes from the a la carte menu. If you run out of conversation, Sean MacFarlane one of the finest close-up magicians in Asia and a live band Cuban Pop entertain. See:, tel: (852) 2537 1388. SEVVA is at 25/F Prince’s Building, 10 Chater Road, Central, Hong Kong

She says, “oh anything, its up to you”. Nerve gritting! She likes Japanese but no matter where you take her, she will say she has already been there. So go for bizarre – it can only be a hit or miss. In this case ‘hit’ we hear as Aqua Roma and Aqua Tokyo perched atop One Peking collaborate to come up with an innovative Italian Sushi menu in May and June. Imagine Italian Sushi, Sashimi and Maki rolls made Japanese style with a totally Italian taste. Think highlights like Adriatic scampi dipped in aromatic olive oil, topped with orange rind and fresh Pachino tomato foam, Sicilian red prawn with mint air, Scallops with lemon oil and sea salt, Fatty tuna and rosemary oil, Lobster buffalo mozzarella and mullet bottarga. Individual 4 piece nigri and sashimi platters are at HK$198 and 6 pieces at HK$258. For HK$488 get a mixed platter of sushi and sashimi or HK$788 get a premium platter selection. Aqua Roma, Aqua Tokyo and Aqua Spirit is on the 29-30F, One Peking Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.
