Honey Hacks! Sweet deals and news in Hong Kong: March edition
1. Clarence: Monthly theme menus
Opened just last year by Michelin-starred chef Olivier Elzer, Clarence has quickly become a firm favourite of those who appreciate contemporary French cuisine. To further elevate the experience at Clarence, Chef Elzer is introducing three epicurean set menus: the signature menu (from $798), a selection of cult classics like the signature Yakifrenchy skewers; a weekly set lunch (from $498) and dinner menu (from $788); and a monthly theme menu, with the March edition being the seven-course Alsace Menu (from $888) – a tribute to Chef Elzer’s hometown and a series of unique offerings cooked by the Chef himself alongside his mother Dorothée on her rare visit to Hong Kong. We love the rustic and hearty Le Baeckeoffe stew; Le Trou Alsacien… Lorrain, a palate cleanser not to be overlooked; and the super light Le Cheesecake, crafted according to Dorothée’s very own recipe.
Psst – do you know about Clarence’s Secret de Cave Menu? Hear it from us: this hidden wine menu is specially curated for regulars and connoisseurs. Among Clarence’s incredible collection of 600 wine labels and 100 champagne from around the world, Secret de Cave offers limited quantities of even rarer and more exclusive labels, allowing guests to discover lesser known gems, aside from the Sommelier Experience Wine Pairing in the set menus. So, don’t miss out on this, wine lovers!

2. Venchi x Cantina: The Chocolate Dinner
What makes a sweeter deal than chocolate? The creative chocolate feast at Cantina, we’d say! Jointly presented by GB Mantelli (Venchi Chocolate Master and Creator of Venchi’s recipes) and Andrea Mura (Italian Executive Chef of Aqua Restaurant Group), the five-course Chocolate Dinner (from $888) is the latest offering at the Italian restaurant in Tai Kwun and is available until 10 April. A demonstration of authentic Italian recipes reimagined with Venchi chocolate, the menu showcases the complex flavours and textures of cocoa, as well as the versatility of this ingredient when infused in both savoury and sweet dishes. Our favourites include the amuse-bouche – sesame cones with mortadella and parmesan cheese, Bronte pistachio, 50-year aged balsamic vinegar and Venchi chocoviar; and the tender Iberico pork with rum-poached shallot, soft caramelised pear, plus a creamy sauce made with Venchi’s extra dark and Gianduia n.3 (hazelnut) chocolate. Feeling thirsty? Try The Dispensary Bar’s V-Punch ($128), a special cocktail crafted with white rum filtered with Venchi white chocolate and pistachio.

3. 1111 ONES Restaurant & Lounge: New chef and menu
Modern European restaurant and lounge, 1111 ONES, has welcomed Michelin-starred chef Chris Chan to the helm! We’re fans of Chef Chan’s ingredient-led approach, as he’s able to bring out the natural flavour of his materials using an artful merge of Eastern and Western culinary techniques. Chef Chan’s new eight-course menu (from $1,800; plus $788 for wine pairing) includes a series of appetisers, a choice of two main courses, and two desserts.
After the team gives you a preview of the day’s fresh ingredients, the feast begins with three hors d’oeuvres, with our fave being the crisp chicken skin infused with Thai green curry. These are followed by various appetisers such as Toro – sustainably sourced bluefin toro paste, paired with Hokkaido sea urchin and balanced with a tangy tomato consommé jelly; Crab (our personal highlight of the night!) – Teochew male crab wrapped in paper-thin radish, topped with caviar and horseradish snow, and served with a leek consommé glaze; Truffle – with a generous portion of freshly shaved black truffle; and the tender Cod – steamed Cantonese-style and served with a sweet French onion soup. Next, take your pick between the Hida Wagyu; and Carabinero with squid ink risotto as your main (whichever you go for, you’re in for a treat!). Finally, the meal concludes with a palate cleanser and Sesame, a delightful sesame crisp complemented with desiccated coconut flakes, sesame and coconut ice cream, and passion fruit jelly.

5. Zuma celebrates Art Month
From 6 to 31 March, the buzzing contemporary izakaya Zuma is celebrating Art Month and the coming of spring. Paying homage to Chinese art and literature, the limited-time plates and drinks at Zuma are created with inspiration from Spring Night, an ancient poem written by the revered Chinese poet and calligrapher Su Shi. To go with the spring-themed dishes of Art-month-special Sushi Platter ($560) and Lobster Carpaccio ($380) are two cocktails, created by Zuma’s bar team in collaboration with Perfume Trees Gin. Opt for the Scent of Spring ($120) for a fruity blend of yuzu hibiscus cordial, sakura liquor, and pineapple; or Courtyard Melody ($120) for a more savoury choice, containing Suze and liqueurs infused with bergamot and shiso.

3. No.3 London Dry Gin debuts in Hong Kong
Welcome to No.3 London Dry Gin, an award-winning gin that’s debuting in Hong Kong this month! Boasting a formula that perfectly balances the flavours of juniper, citrus, and spice, this gin has been renowned as the “World’s Best Gin”, winning this title four times at the International Spirits Challenge, as well as being the first gin to have ever won the prestigious “Supreme Champion Award”.
To celebrate its launch, No.3 London Dry Gin is collaborating with Argo this month, offering a bespoke cocktail menu created by famous mixologist Lorenzo Antinori. There are three refreshing concoctions, including Century Highball, a G&T topped with shiso wine; Heirloom Gimlet, a slightly savoury cocktail featuring Aquavit spirit and fresh tomato cordial (this was one of our faves even though we aren’t normally fans of savoury cocktails!); and Majestic Martini, a strong (and dangerously delicious) drink made with Amontillado sherry, yuzu bitters, oolong tea, and coconut water. While you pose in the beautiful bar, don’t forget to take a look at the brand new bottle design of No.3 London Dry Gin, too – we love the turquoise colour and the elegant silver key embedded on the bottle!

Embark on an extraordinary sensory experience at Cordis’ Alibi – Wine Dine Be Social, as the restaurant launches its summer afternoon tea (from $598 for two) in collaboration with Chloé. Inspired by Chloé’s Nomade Eau De Parfum Naturelle, a classy and radiant perfume with jasmine tones, the afternoon tea revolves around the themes of nature and elegance.

Lastly, don’t forget to pick up your complimentary sample of Chloé Nomade, too.

2. Two Moons Distillery x Room 309: Five Flower Tea Gin cocktail pop-up
Missed Two Moons’ limited-time release of its Five Flowers Tea Gin some time ago? Fret not, as this popular flavour has made its grand return this month! To celebrate its comeback as a permanent core product of the local distillery, an exclusive series of cocktails made with Five Flowers Tea Gin is available at Room 309, as part of a mystic crystal-themed pop-up until 23 July. Drawing from the healing qualities of five flowers tea (a traditional Chinese herbal remedy) and crystals, the experience is designed to be a thorough journey of relaxation and rejuvenation, from body to soul. First, let your natural aura and energy guide you to a random crystal from the blind bag; this crystal will determine your cocktail. Next, use the “flower of life” crystal grid to harness the power of your crystal.
For those who wish for self-love and romance, the Rose Quartz cocktail ($160) is for you. One of our favourites, this pink drink is made with pear juice, house-made ginger cordial, yoghurt froth, and Campari salt sprinkles. Citrine ($160), a yellow concoction, gives a boost of positive energy and prosperity. Aventurine ($160), a symbol of courage and opportunities, is a more daring choice on the menu. Crafted with kale juice, natural sugarcane, and green chartreuse, this cocktail is refreshing and we’d recommend it to acquired drinkers. Finally, Clear Quartz ($140) signifies purity and, as a G&T, allows you to most directly enjoy the floral characteristics of Five Flowers Tea Gin.
