Glasshouse by Asaya Kitchen, the extended elevated dining location at Rosewood Hong, has unveiled its new autumn tasting menu, created by Chef Fabio Nompleggio.
Led by Italian chef Fabio Nompleggio, Glasshouse by Asaya Kitchen is the extended elevated dining location by the infinity pool of Rosewood Hong Kong. The new and refined tasting menu features a seasonal multi-course dinner of sustainable Mediterranean pescatarian cuisine with premium ingredients sourced from local farmers, fisheries and food artisans.
The spectacular setting facing Victoria Harbour will make the new autumn tasting menu even more memorable. Glasshouse at Asaya Kitchen will be a perfect location for sparkling intimate occasions and celebrations, thanks to its versatile private dining space that can host up to 22 guests.
Wherever possible, vegetables and fruits are sourced from local farms that follow organic cultivation processes. Most of the seafood is obtained through Rosewood Hong Kong’s special partnership with Sai Kung-based Shun King Fisherman as part of the hotel’s “Partners in Provenance” programme that focuses on sourcing food products locally to reduce carbon emission, and more importantly, ensures the guests are enjoying ingredients in season.
