Sturias’ lightly salted caviar releases long hazelnut flavours on one’s palate creating an extraordinary experience. With uncompromising standards in selecting and refining caviar while emphasising the importance of environmental protection, Sturia has developed itself into a leading caviar brand across Europe, exciting gastronomic enthusiasts.

Mumm is rooted to Martell Mumm Perrier- Jouët, the prestigious cognac and Champagne business of Pernod Ricard, the world’s co-leader in Wines and Spirits. The RSRV range by Maison Mumm shines spotlight on the prestigious and secret history of their cuvees while acting as a reference to the mark used by cellar masters when selecting and identifying the best wines from Grands Crus.

Trendsetting Ramen Noodle Mecca RAMEN CUBISM

Launches New Range of Instagrammable Specialties

Flagship for international brand extends cult-favourite menu in Wellington Street, Central

Trendsetting new ramen noodle mecca RAMEN CUBISM has launched a new range of specialties at the chic basement venue in Wellington Street, Central.

RAMEN CUBISM has attracted a cult following since Japan’s ‘celebrity’ ramen champion Hayashi Takao expanded to Hong Kong.

Continuing a constant pursuit of creativity, the brand now enhances its menu with a sensational new Instagram-friendly ramen specialty, Greenwood Bird-Mackerel Broth (HK$98) along with dazzling fried chicken appetisers and side snacks.

Greenwood Bird-Mackerel Broth is as picturesque as the seashore that sources its premium ingredients – with shrimps in a clear soup broth of Japanese mackerel, nourished with sliced chilli, leek, Chinese cabbage, needle mushroom and mushrooms, dressed in a bed of prized, dried Japanese seaweed.  It is the brand’s first non-meat ramen version, introduced as a lighter option for the hot summer, with just 20 servings sold per day, available only after 5.30 p.m.

Familiar fried chicken is meanwhile elevated to a new level among side dishes served after 5:30 p.m. to pair perfectly with after-work Japanese beer. Deep Fried Nagoya Style Chicken Wing (HK$38 / 2 pieces) is a tender, crispy, savoury Nagoya-style snack seasoned with sesame and lemon sauce; and an alternative battered version is Japanese Fried Crispy Chicken (HK$38).

Other snacks on the early-evening menu include Japanese Kansai Style Oden (HK$68), a lighter Osaka alternative to more familiar Kanto-style oden, with boiled egg, radish and unusual ingredients like tube-shaped ‘Chikuwa’ fish & egg white, fish cake, jelly-like ‘Konnyaku’ (also known as konjac or devil’s fruit) and ‘Atsuage’ fried tofu in a dashi broth.

Braised Japanese Radish (HK$38) is a mouth-watering snack showpiece of seasonal radish from Kansai, also in dashi broth, and Spinach in Chilled Bonito Stock (HK$28) is another vegetable option.

Eminently Instagrammable ramen creating the biggest buzz on social media are meanwhile currently headlined by Premium Cubism – White Broth (HK$118 / Large), an extra-hearty larger option of a regular HK$88 version, especially renowned for Chef Hayashi’s signature slow-cooked pork belly and a half soft-boiled egg in a ‘secret recipe’ broth.

Another signature favourite is The Sea Bird – Soy Broth (HK$88), an elixir of nine premium soy sauces with shellfish, bonito (skipjack) and a thick 3cm slice of tasty, top quality stewed pork.

For the sundowner crowd, RAMEN CUBISM’s menu of premium Japanese beer is enhanced with Sapporo Premium Beer (HK$58) and Suntory The PREMIUM MALT’S(HK$58) joining a signature range of COEDO brews

The young chef, 31, is collaborating on his first overseas venture with Hong Kong’s Bird Kingdom Group, renowned for putting Lai Chi Kok’s D2 Place on the dining map.

Hong Kong is earmarked as the springboard to expand RAMEN CUBISM as an international brand with branches across the region – including a newly-opened branch in the chef’s hometown of Osaka, Macau (in Q2, 2019) and mainland China.

“Our creations are unconventional, marrying traditional cooking technology and innovative ideas, bringing a one of a kind ramen ‘comfort food’ experience to Hong Kong,” saidChef Hayashi.

Named after the early 20th century art movement pioneered by Pablo Picasso, RAMEN CUBISM’s Wellington Street venue is immediately recognisable by a graffiti mural on the street wall by Russian artist Sergei Rozhnow.

Merging vivid images of historic ramen masters and the two celebrity chefs with Japanese anime characters, the vibrant mural is inspired by parallels between the influential creativity of cubism art and minimalist simplicity of Japanese culture.

The cosy interior of RAMEN CUBISM features a predominant wood finish, invoking the sense of natural, fresh, and authentic ingredients sourced from environmentally-friendly places. The authentic feel of this place is also amplified by the Japanese pottery specially commissioned for the chefs’ signature noodles.

RAMEN CUBISM is in the basement of Yuen Yick Building, No. 27-29 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong.

Opens from Sunday to Thursday, 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and Friday to Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight; payment are accepted by cash, Octopus, Alipay and WeChat Pay.

His inspiration comes from his extensive travels, where he studied and absorbed local cultures and the characteristics of their dishes to hone his culinary skills. His carefully designed menu combines knowledge acquired from books, caters to modern taste buds and is mindful of nutritional values.

Another standout is the Traditional Tan Cuisine Braised Angus Beef, a succulent dish that has been slowly simmered with snow candy, honey, soya sauce and dried tangerine peel until the ingredients have blended together into an exquisite mix that tantalizes the tongue. Finally, the meal would not be complete without the “Jiao Dong” Sweet Vinegared Yellow Croaker, a traditional, delicate dish of Shandong Jinan that boasts a soft, golden colour and a delightful sweet and sour combination.

In addition to the set menu, guests can try one of Chef Wayne’s other signature dishes, including 4 Headed Abalone with Truffle and Grains, which marries fresh abalone with black truffle sauce, making it a soft and tender delight.

The team behind award-winning restaurant group Maximal Concepts will open Sip Song – Thai Eatery & Bar, in Repulse Bay’s The Pulse, set to open end June 2019.

Sip Song is inspired by the beach culture of the Southern Thai coast and the food of Bangkok night markets. Developed alongside Group Executive Chef Russell Doctrove, the menu is based on authentic Thai street food, leaning on Head Chef Nuch Srichantranon’s experience growing up in Bangkok, with a slight twist influenced by his experience cooking in Australia.

Located a few doors down from established beachside favourite Limewood, also owned and operated by Maximal Concepts, Sip Song will have an emphasis on the quality and flavor of ingredients presented in a rustic and honest way. Interiors are to be inspired by the easy-going kind of local eatery found along beaches and amongst night markets all over Thailand. Featured heavily in the design is a children’s play area, with games like giant jenga and noughts & crosses on the wall (for big kids as well as small…!)

Signature dishes will include,

Roti Kor Muu Yang Prik Pow ǀ “Don’t Tell Mom” Roti Pancake
BBQ pork neck, chili jam, spring onion, fresh herbs, crispy shallot

Kai Loog Keuy ǀ Thai Son-in-Law Scotch Egg

Phat Kee Mao Gai ǀ Drunken Style Spicy Noodles

Ube Ice Cream

Head Chef Nuch Srichantranon is a Bangkok native who grew up taking regular trips to the beaches of his mother’s hometown of Satun, in South Thailand. Nuch joins Maximal Concepts with over seven years of professional kitchen experience, having started his career as a dishwasher and prep cook at a Thai restaurant in Sydney, Australia before joining iconic Melbourne-based Thai restaurant Chin Chin, alongside Benjamin Cooper. Nuch moved to Hong Kong in 2017, where he worked at Mak Mak, before joining the Maximal Concepts family in 2018.

Regarding the inspiration behind his cuisine at Sip Song, Chef Nuch says, “Some of my earliest memories are from wandering the night markets with my mother and being awe struck at the sights, smells, and sounds. Over the years I started to learn in more detail what each vendor was selling and appreciating the care and passion that went into their livelihood. For Sip Song, my goal is to bring back the focus to dynamic Thai flavours and fresh quality ingredients, whilst incorporating influences from my time cooking in Australia.”

Further details including precise opening date and reservation line to be announced in the near future.
