Simon Rogan's The Baker & The Bottleman Officially Opens in Hong Kong

Following on the success of Aulis Development Kitchen & Chef’s Table and 1 Michelin-starred and Michelin Green Star-recipient Roganic Hong Kong, the renowned British chef Simon Rogan has officially opened his latest venture in Hong Kong: The Baker & The Bottleman.

A modern bakery by day and natural wine bar by night, The Baker & The Bottleman is now open and is serving sweet and savoury treats along with a casual glass of wine at the gourmet and lifestyle oasis of Lee Tung Avenue, Wan Chai, Hong Kong.

Some of the items on the menu

What’s on The Baker & The Bottleman menu?
Sweet and savoury highlights from the menu are now available directly from the store via takeaway. Freshly baked bread options include the crowd favourite Roganic Irish Soda Bread Loaf, a classic Irish soda bread made with rye and wholemeal flour topped with golden syrup and oats, and Sourdough Loaf that uses all-natural, GMO-free, unbleached and ethically sourced flours from Alchermuhle, one of the oldest family mills in Germany.

Freshly made Scotch eggsFor those craving after classic English bites, enjoy options of Breakfast Muffin, a traditional English muffin cooked with semolina and filled with sausage patty, black pudding, brown sauce, and fried egg; Coronation Chicken Sandwich, a simple yet delicious treat of buttery brioche buns with a filling of curried chicken breast, curry and coriander mayonnaise, sliced onion and buttered lettuce; and Cheese and Ham Toastie.

If that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, also on the menu is a comforting grilled cheese sandwich made from sliced fermented potato bread, English ham and Tunworth bechamel cheese.

Other savoury dishes not to miss include the Scotch Egg with Pickled Walnut Sauce, a traditional soft-boiled egg encased in sausage and black pudding, covered in panko breadcrumbs and deep-fried to a crunchy, golden exterior, and individual slices of home-style Quiche, made from short-crust pastry and filled with savoury egg custard, slow-cooked beer onion and pickled thyme.

The sweet side of things
Guests with a sweet tooth will be spoilt for choice with The Baker & The Bottleman’s diverse pastry offering. Highlights include Blueberry Swirl, a baked blueberry custard-filled roulade-style pastry with crisp, laminated croissant dough; Chocolate Layers Cake, a decadent slice of dark chocolate-glazed cake with triple layers of almond chocolate sponge, milk chocolate and malt cream, and mascarpone and vanilla cream; Chocolate Brownie, a divinely fudgy brownie made from 66% chocolate; Triple Valrhona Chocolate Cookies; and Pine and Strawberry Jam Doughnuts, the irresistible pine sugar-coated brioche doughnut filled with homemade strawberry jam.

To whet your whistle
Examples of distinctive hand-selected bottles that will be available at the upstairs bar from its opening in mid-January include I am The Ninja 2020 (HK$240), a super-fun Pét-Nat to kickstart the tastebuds alongside a platter of charcuterie.

The refreshing wine offers a light, creamy fizz with fresh fruit flavours of green apple and white pear and is created with grapes from old Chenin vines in Swartland, South Africa. The Orbois 2019 is a bright and bold organic wine from Cour-Cheverny in Loire Valley, France. Notes include almond, lemon zest, caramel, and honeysuckle, and it is a versatile wine perfect for pairing with a broad diversity of food, including chicken and cheese.

Vanguardist CVR 2019 is a fresh, chalky and crisp Riesling from Clare Valley, Australia, with the zip and rip of acidity, cider apple, and preserved lemon. The wine hails from the western side of Churinga vineyard and is the last vintage from this patch. A collaboration between winemakers Julio Bouchon of Chile and David Nieuwoudt of South Africa, Glup! 2020 is a true expression of terroir with a breathtaking intensity and richness. Coming from vineyards in the Marchigue Valley, it is the only Chenin Blanc made in Chile.

Susucaru Rosato is a refreshing and fruity summer rosé from Sicily, Italy, made with a blend of Malvasia, Moscadella, Insolia and Nerello Mascalese that is regarded almost like a light red. A full, rich, and supple Pinot Noir from the Savigny Les Beaune region of France, Savigny Lès Beaune 2018 offers a beautiful pairing with red meats such as beef and game.

Trebbiolo 2019 is the younger version of the traditional blend of Colli Piacentini, obtained from the local varieties of Barbera (60%) and Bonarda (40%). The wine is born from the younger and lower parts of the vineyard, offering a rustic nose and fruit-forward, earthy notes with a medium body.
