The owners behind Madam Sixty Ate and Madam S’ate has embarked on another culinary venture with the opening of their third restaurant. Named 12,000 Francs, the restaurant serving European contemporary cuisine boasts a creative menu crafted by former Bibo and TRi chef Conor Beach.
Beetroot salad with smoked eel
Examples from the initial menu, which is set to change with the seasons, include smoked coral trout and tiger prawn rillettes; homemade merguez sausage with onion; short rib pastrami with barley and rye; Côte de Boeuf with whisky and cocoa nib butter emulsion; gai lan with smoked almonds and anchovies and, the signature dish, suckling pig shoulder served in the pan.
A testament to the restaurant's commitment to using high-quality ingredients, 12,000 Francs sources its produce from the Hong Kong Seed Bank, an organic farm located in Tuen Mun. Much of the offerings of the restaurant will be made in house too, from the sourdough and terrines to the pastrami. 12,000 Francs also features an extensive wine list offered at reasonable prices. Their collection houses many boutique wines that are sourced by working directly with producers and boutique importers.
