The Principal was e.x.p.e.n.s.i.v.e. but was it worth a try? I would say that this is a one time only dining experience especially with their lunch menu at the price of HKD330 for three courses. The Principal is the definition of fine dining in Hong Kong and lunch at this Michelin starred restaurant was a pure treat since my friend paid for me. Side note – I didn’t take a picture of the Nutella with Shaved Vanilla and Shortbread but it was the best dessert I have ever had…my God.
Lunch at The Principal was an hour of elegance. The presentation of everything was luxurious and classy, the service was beyond professional and the food was a sumptuous work of art.
For the appetizer I got the Foie (foie gras) with coco beans, watercress purée and balsamic vinegar. Perhaps I have weak taste buds but I couldn’t taste the coco beans in any part of this dish. On the other hand, I liked how the balsamic vinegar lightened the taste and texture of the foie gras.
As for the main, I ordered Beef which is Sirloin beef with roasted potatoes, pearl onions, romaine lettuce, and roast tomato. I loved the sauce but honestly, this is more of less your average steak dinner with roasted potatoes and Romaine lettuce.
