ICHU is located in the beautiful H Queen’s building and is itself a stunner of a restaurant. There are loads of gorgeous curves, muralled walls and textured fabrics in addition to the floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious terrace. At night, it’s especially moody and loungy. While it might not be ideal for photos (sorry these are so dark!), it’s a great space to spend a few hours feasting – which is exactly what we did.
Hong Kong is no stranger to four-hands dinners, but I haven’t had one that was such good value in a long time. For ICHU’s first four-hands dinners earlier this month, Chef Sang Jeong partnered with Chef Emanuel Alvarado of Crab Market Dubai to create an eight-course menu for $720 per person.
There were many hella good things on this menu including Chef Jeong’s stuffed chicken wing and Wagyu hanger steak (with one of the best chimichurri sauces I’ve ever had) and Chef Alvarado’s king crab salad.
In my opinion, there’s nothing worse than paying for an expensive, multi-course menu and leaving hungry. But there was absolutely nothing to worry about with this menu. Not only were the courses generously portioned, but they were generous with their high-quality ingredients too. I left the restaurant feeling very satisfied.
While the ICHU x Crab Market Dubai four-hands dinners are now over, the ICHU x La Rambla dinners, from 5–8 May 2019, are next up, where Chef Jeong will be partnering with Chef Ferran Tadeo. I’ve tried Chef Tadeo’s cooking at La Rambla before and it’s also delicious, so this is definitely a dinner you won’t want to miss.
