New menu review: Isola, an Italian restaurant, IFC Mall, Hong Kong
Eat your way through Italy (in Hong Kong) for a limited time only
Most people love Italian food but I’d bet that most don’t know there are 20 regions in Italy and each have their own unique customs and traditions including food and wine options (or maybe it's just me). This season, Isola want to introduce Hong Kong to the breadth and depth of Italian food with their new regional menus. Each menu is available for a two week period and priced at $428.
Here’s what they will cover:
Recently, I had the chance to try the ‘Journey to Trentino South Tyrol’ menu and was pleasantly surprised. This region is in the north and where both Isola’s chef and manager are fun. We had great fun learning about how the colder temperature results in home-ier food. Each dish was new for me.
When I left Isola, I felt like I’d just had dinner at a friend’s house (food-wise, Isola’s location is still quite glam with the skyline and all). The dishes had a ‘just like mom used to make’ quality and the portion sizes were generous.
Check out the Friuli Venezia Giulia (2 to 15 September) and Puglia (16 to 29 September) menus before this special series is over!
