Nobu Hong Kong

On the evening of my arrival in Hong Kong, I was lucky enough to have been invited to dine at Nobu Hong Kong. We have our very own Nobu here in Manila but due to the fact that prices were quite steep, I have never able been to try it out. It seems that the first time I get to dine at Nobu, it would be in Hong Kong.

I tried the Nobu Signature Tasting Dinner which cost 1088HKD. The first dish I had was the Salmon Tartar with Caviar on Top and Wasabi with Japanese peach on the side to cleanse the palette. I loved the taste of the salmon and the only downside of this dish was that it was too small. I wish they served more of this.


Next came the Newstyle Oyster Sashimi and Yellowtail Sashimi with Yuzu Sauce. The oyster was pretty huge and if you're not really into oyster, it would be pretty hard to swallow. The yellowtail on the other hand was pretty good.


3rd on the signature tasting menu was the Medium Fatty Tuna, Yellowtail Tuna, Salmon Eggs, and Crispy Rice with Shrimp paste. Honestly, there was nothing outstanding about this 3rd plate.


The 4th plate was the King Crab Tempura with Japanese Vinegar and this was my favorite. I think I even ended up having another one of this because the other people in my party couldn't eat crab. It was really good and the crab was definitely more than bite size.


The Pico Fish was a little weird. I don't know if I just wasn't used to it but it was really just weird.


The Beef Tenderloin with Cauliflower and Mushroom was perfection. Next to the crab, this one is definitely my favorite. I loved the mushroom and I loved the beef. I could have eaten 3 of these without blinking.


The Clam Green Tea Noodle was VERY different. It's definitely unique and new. I've never had green tea as a soup and paired with the soba noodles and golden mushrooms, it gave off quite a different feel.

Finally, the 8th dish of the night is the Panna Cotta with Granita and Strawberry Topping. The strawberry was pretty good and the granita was interesting but I felt that it was lacking a little bit of something something.


What made the night worth it was the view. This was my view while I was having dinner. It's definitely mesmerizing.


If you have money to spare, I would definitely recommend getting the Nobu experience but if money is an issue, there are cheaper ways to get this view with more affordable food to consume.

  2. I've been to the Nobu in NYC several times, and my absolute favorite dish is the King Crab Tempura. I would get it To Go for lunch so that I could have two orders. :P

  6. The dishes in Nobu all look appetizing and what an amazing view while you're having dinner. I can have an ordinary meal and still be tremendously happy if I'm granted with that night view. I hope you can elaborate more on cheaper alternatives you have mentioned at the end. :)

  16. I don't know why but the food doesn't look appetizing to me. And I wonder why their signature dishes are more Japanese with added dishes from other cuisines rather than focusing on HongKong cuisine. Anyway, if I were to go there, I'll definitely go after the view too. -Me-An Clemente of http://yogoandcream.com

  29. Hong Kong seems like such a stunning place! Nobu seems like a lovely place to indulge if you like seafood and sushi. I am not a huge fan, so it probably wouldn't be a great place for me to dine.
