Modern Mediterranean: If you’re yearning for Spanish tapas and hefty portions to share, this is the place to be. From the patatas to the paella, Quiero Más adds contemporary fare to its traditional recipes.
Look & Feel: Located on the penthouse of M88 Tower in Central, Quiero Más is sleek and sophisticated with its modern furnishings. The space is filled with a deep, ambiant color palette. Guests can sits at the bar for cocktails before nestling into a booth or table for dining.
On The Menu: As avid tapas fans, we tried as much of it as our stomachs could manage. The menu is split up into different sections. There’s raw starters, characuterie, salads, tapas and bigger mains. First, we had the Southern Seas (HK$168) a mouthwatering bed of fresh scallop ceviche atop avocado mousse. The traditional beef steak tartare (HK$188) is also worth a mention for its intriguing pairing with buttery brioche.
Next up, the tapas. Dos Dias Patatas (HK$98) takes two days to make, resulting in potatoes with a mille-feuille interior and a crispy skin. The Bikini Sobrasada (HK$110) takes toasties to the next level with its indulgent fillings smoothered in cheese and Greek honey. But the showstopper on the menu is undoubtely the Boston lobster (HK$398), arriving whole with a rich Vichyssoise purée. On our visit, the restaurant was waiting on its alcohol license so we tried some mocktails like the alcohol-free G&T. Fret not, if you like wine with your meal, bring it along for complimentary corkage (during its soft opening).
Jeng: The friendly staff and chic setting added to our experience. The best dishes though were definitely the aforementioned lobster and the patatas.
Not So Jeng: We found that the truffle and cheese toastie was a bit bland despite its aromatic ingredient. However, we loved the porcini and black truffle pasta which was able to highlight the special flavor.
Great For: A chilled weekday evening or weekend brunch.
