Zurriola

Zurriola, the newly opened Italian fine dining experience. Located in The One in TST, it boasts one heck of a view as well as one heck of a meal! Up in the sky, on the 18th floor of the highest retail complex. Its a beaut of a place. Zurriola takes inspiration from La Rambla, a well-known street in Barcelona and offers diners contemporary Spanish tapas, pastas, “bomba” rices and many more. The Hong Kong restaurant was heavily influenced by 1 star Michelin Restaurant Zurriola in Tokyo. Occupying the 18th floor of The One is also sister and brother restaurants from the same group- Japanese fine dining Kyo-Shun and fun Spanish tapas bar Tapagria!

Spanish Salmorejo soup, with avocado cream and Hokkaido sea urchin, 西班牙凍湯伴牛油果乳酪及日本海膽. HK$ 198. I went with the cold soup…a tangy gazpacho soup. Its creamy, rich, spicy, refreshing and amazing with the large sea urchin on top. IMG_3302

Char grilled octopus with potato cream, smoked Spanish paprika and vegetables, 炭烤章魚配香滑薯茸、煙燻西班牙辣椒粉及有機蔬菜. HK$ 230. This was my least favorite of the set starters, but was still very good! The octopus had a smokey, grilled, bbq flavour that mixed well with the whipped potato cream.

Char grilled Australia sirloin M7 with cherry vinegar flavours, roasted vegetables and romesco sauce, 炭烤澳洲M7和牛西冷配時令蔬菜及特製西班牙蕃茄甜椒汁. HK$ 450. Oh wait, I forgot about this. The char grilled Austrailian sirloin M7 was soooooooo buttery soft, it hardly required more than 4 bites before melting into your mouth. The Wagyu Beef was so delectable. Very very memorable.
