Aqua Roma, Aqua Tokyo & Aqua Spirit

Aqua, Hong Kong, Beijing and London's most exclusive dining and socialising venue never fails to replenish our palates with gastronomical fusion delights and quench our thirst with its innovative combination of tantalizing cocktails. All is this made possible thanks to Aqua Restaurant Group.

Upon my arrival in the vibrant cosmopolitan of Hong Kong, I was introduced to this sublime and chic venue, where I had the chance to appreciate haute Japanese (Aqua Tokyo) and Italian (Aqua Roma) cuisine, a good conversation, whilst admiring  the breathtaking view of the Hong Kong harbour and city; a truly magnificent dancing kaleidoscope of lights.

Aqua provides one of the best night views of Hong Kong.

Voted as one of Conde Nast Traveller's Top 100 New Restaurants, trendy and posey bar known as Aqua Spirit does not only provide the best ambiance for mingling with moneyed bankers, expats and newfangled media folk, but it is also the prime area to get your groove on and let your hair down, especially when the DJ spins hot couture house music on weekends.

The restaurant downstairs, however, is littered with couples - dim lights, picturesque skyline, soothing lounge music, good food, what more could you ask for? Aqua is the perfect destination for love birds as well as those who is in dire need of unwinding and taking the edge off a stressful day at work.

Here are some pictorial delights of the food after having spent 20 minutes perusing through the extensive food menu.

Aqua Tokyo Sushi Platter - 12 different pieces of innovative sushi ingredients. 
I personally wasn't very fond of the sushi platter as I felt that the ingredients used were not very fresh neither was it intriguing. It's just your average sushi platter, if you know what I mean.

I, on the other hand, fell head over heels in love with the Ravioli al fegato grasso con porcini e tartufo nero, which translates into veal and foie gras stuffed ravioli with porcini mushroom sauce and shaved black truffle, and their signature Tiramisu cake.

At a hefty price of HKD108 and the need to satisfy my penchant for Vodka based cocktails, the Porn Star Martini is definitely the highlight of the night. This is an orgasmic concoction of Absolut Vanilla, passion fruit liquer, Vanilla sugar and bubbles; a cocktail not to be missed along with other contemporary classics.

There's only one thing to worry about when hitting the ultra-stylish Aqua, do ensure your pockets are deep enough. :)
