Hong Kong, December 2013 – Since its opening in 2012, AMMO has received impressive praises for its fine Italian-fusion cuisine as well as its unusual “military chic” interiors in the middle of Hong Kong’s urban jungle. Mr. King and I went to AMMO for dinner after a visit to Asia Society, a private museum showcasing Asian arts, in which the restaurant is housed.
Interiors – “AMMO’s cinematic interiors were created by Joyce Wang of Wang Studios who took inspiration from the 1965 film noir masterpiece, Alphaville. The use of copper throughout the interior is at once luxurious and industrial while referencing the site’s military past. The result is a surreal yet modern space, nestled within the jungle that feels a world away from the bustle of the city.” (www.ammo.com.hk)
Menus – “AMMO serves up homemade pasta, made fresh onsite from organic Italian eggs. While preserving the traditional method of pasta making, many of AMMO’s dishes have been given a distinctly Asian twist to create a unique culinary point of view. “ (www.ammo.com.hk)
Our favorites were Wagyu Beef Cheek with Brioche Toast and Angel Hair Pasta with Uni, Cherry Tomatoes and Garlic Chips.
We couldn’t decide what to order for desserts so we selected several , and they were all sinfully delightful in presentation as well as in taste.
My apologies for the quality of the photos; it was due to the very dim lighting and less than professional camera on my phone. All photos were taken by Mrs. King.
