Three of Bali’s hottest culinary stars – two chefs and one mixologist – are bringing the island’s vibrant global cuisine, world-class drinks, and laid-back party vibes to the 852 with a new menu specially curated for Test Kitchen Central. Hong Kongers will be transported to the Island of the Gods as Stephen Moore of Shelter, Benjamin Cross of Mason Group, and award-winning mixologist Zac de Git join forces to showcase the very best of Bali in the exclusive pop-up dinners on 16 to 18 March.
The eight-course menu (which comes with a complimentary cocktail) is designed to be shared over long communal tables, and served in the same traditional family-style manner of Indonesian tribes. Relax with your friends and guests as you dig in to flavourful dishes inspired by the Middle East and Mediterranean – all specially designed for this pop-up.

About Test Kitchen
Test Kitchen began with founder Vincent Mui’s vision to bring a unique culinary platform for local and global chefs to showcase their immense talent and creativity through food. In 2015, the first Test Kitchen was founded in Sai Ying Pun, sparking interest thanks a distinctive intimate loft event space which allowed guests to get up-close and personal with their chefs to create an unparalleled dining experience in Hong Kong.
To this date Test Kitchen has run hundreds of pop-ups, with over 300 chefs from more than 30 countries, many awarded with Michelin stars, James Beard awards, and Asia’s 50 Best. In 2023, Test Kitchen Central was launched in the highly anticipated Basehall 02 at Jardine House. Aiming to take communal dining to new heights and push the culinary envelope, Test Kitchen Central is dedicated to diners who wish to gather and share good conversation over delicious food and drinks.
