Proving that good things do come in pairs, Popinjays will present a special pair of menus, with one focused on meat and the other on seafood. Each course on the menu employs similar cooking techniques and garnishes analogous in flavour profile and texture to create a perfectly complementary Valentine’s Day dinner experience. Diners will notice strong parallels between the Milk Fed Veal Tartare with vitello tonnato sauce and potato crisp, and the Japanese Sea Bream Tartare with sumac vinaigrette and taro chips. Priced at HKD 888 for four courses and HKD 1,088 for six courses, guests can order from both menus and share bites off each other’s plates in the spirit of a more amorous and intimate dining experience. Available only on 14 February, highlights on the turf-centric menu also include the Double Duck Consommé, and the Braised and Roasted Wagyu Beef. The surf-focused menu features the Strong Lobster Consommé and the Slow Poached Cod Fish.
For a romantic start to the season, Popinjays is also serving a feast of sweet and savoury afternoon tea treats in rosy hues throughout the month of February. Priced at HKD 728 for two guests, the Red Afternoon Tea promises to melt any heart, featuring the Foie Gras Terrine with Red Wine and Sour Cherry Gelee and Raspberry Macaron with Peppermint Mascarpone Cheese. Pair with a handcrafted themed cocktail or rose champagne for added pleasure.
This 14 and 15 February, The Tai Pan offers lovebirds an elegant dinner menu revolving around lobster, the food favoured by romantics. The four-course menu is priced at HKD 688 per person and comes with an option to add a wine pairing at HKD 344 per person.
