[Hong Kong] Amber - Feast for the Future
Amber will be closing temporarily for renovations soon on December 9th and I got the chance to dine one last time at the current Amber for a special Feast for the Future menu which showcases 14 signature dishes with each representing a year in the restaurant's 14-year journey! My first visit was in 2014 so I was glad to have the opportunity to try dishes from Amber's earlier years. The menu will only be available this week from December 3rd to 9th - do you spot your favorites below?
Chef Richard Ekkebus is embracing the changes with a brand new look - he dyed all his hair a cool shade of silver grey!
