My conference finished just before lunch today, and while most of the others moved to join the group lunch, once again I chose to break ranks and go off on my own. There's one more place I wanted to revisit before heading back to Hong Kong.
I had a really enjoyable lunch at The Tasting Room in the Crown Towers last year at the hotel's invitation, and I was more than happy to go back on my own dime after they were promoted to 2 stars. Instead of taking a 4-course set lunch as I had originally planned, I decided to take the 4-course dinner set as suggested.
Totally stunning dish.
Anyway, this was very delicious, and does taste like a French onion soup - other than substituting the Gruyère with Parmigiano-Reggiano.
