Dining at Liberty Private Works reminded me of the vibe at Atera, NYC. This literally in-your-face open kitchen setting gives you a full view of the kitchen and its busy chefs milling around, as well as a chance to interact with other diners.
LPW’s nightly 8-course degustation menu sets you back HKD900, quite reasonably priced. Chef Vicky Cheng polished his French culinary skills under Daniel and Canoe and Auberge Du Pommier, he adds an Asian twist to his dishes.
I was particularly pleased with his Milk Jam, Quinoa and salted duck egg dish. The name alone makes the dish sound exotic, but surprisingly the saltiness of the duck egg paired well with the sweetness of the milk jam ice cream.
Among the private kitchens in Hong Kong, this is definitely among the very good ones. Most of the dishes felt classic and traditional, in a good way.
