New Sichuan: Joining a handful of new openings in Harbour City is Fu Rong, a contemporary Chinese eatery that gives Sichuan delicacies an innovative, Western-inspired twist.
Look & Feel: Done up in beige and slate grey, Fu Rong’s aesthetics are comfortable and homey with a sense of understated elegance. Traditional touches are present in the form of traditional wooden panels at the entrance, paper-screen-like lamps, and modern gold decor pieces on the walls. Tables are great for small groups, and the entire space boasts a great view of the harbor.
On the Menu: It’s all about the Chengdu delicacies, but you can expect more than the typical mouth-numbing Sichuan spices. Plenty of dishes are modernized revamps of the traditional recipe. For instance, the Bon Bon Chicken is elevated with a sugar globe of chilli oil, while the chicken in the Chengdu chicken consommé has a fine, mousse-like texture that’s more commonly found in Western fine-dining. Other dishes include Chongzhou vegetable rolls with wasabi caviar, red rice porridge, and fried rice cakes with Sichuan brown sugar.
FYI: While this is the first Fu Rong in Hong Kong, there are over 70 branches of the restaurant on the Mainland.
