Bo Innovation Review

The mastermind behind this renowned, Michelin-approved restaurant is Alvin Leung, who dubbed himself the "demon chef" and had the moniker tattooed on his arm. Bo Innovation serves what he calls "X-treme Chinese" cuisine, applying molecular gastronomy, French, and Japanese cooking techniques to traditional Cantonese dishes. The Australian Wagyu strip loin with black-truffle cheung fun, or rice roll, is a winner, as is the signature molecular xiao long bao (soup dumpling). At dinner you must choose between the eight-course tasting menu or the 12-course chef's menu; à la carte dining is not available. Tables are often full on Friday and Saturday, so book in advance.

    Bo Innovation Review

    Fodor's prices aren't current - as of Dec. 13 '11, the base menu is ~$850HKD, +$400 for the mid-tier, and yet another $400 add. for the top-tier. The difference lies in a couple of 'special' dishes, and so, picking the menu here is easier than your typical prix-fixe.

    The optional "Har Mi"/carabinero and pigeon are outstanding and definitely worth the up-charges. Of the standard items, Iberico 36, foie gras, tomato, molecular xiao long bao, crab, and pineapple (dessert) were all memorable. That, for me, is very rare.

    An easy favorite out of the few Michelin stars I checked out. More enjoyable than Spoon by Alain Ducasse, L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, and Ye Shanghai.
