What is it? A former munitions depot created by the British has been transformed into a cool new eatery with an extensive cocktail menu.
The place: This restaurant is a stunner. Copper piping is the central theme of the design and seamlessly holds this all-glass, high-ceilinged cube that hangs just over the rich greenery off Hong Kong Park. Five minutes walk from Pacific Place, AMMO is currently booked solid for two months, and that only makes it more enticing to try to score a table.
The menu: Rather limited. The only choices for main courses are pasta; homemade, beautifully flavoured pastas, but for anyone gluten-intolerant or looking to keep off the carbs, there are no options here. With a weekly changing set lunch menu and a 9pm tapas menu with plenty of wines by the glass, it’s an interesting mash up on offer. The food is delightful, as is the setting and the service, even if it’s not quite what you’d expect.
Final note: If you know you’re going for pasta, you’re going to love this place.
