HK Part II: Gray Kunz at Café Gray Hong Kong
This whole great firewall of China thing has brought me back to the stone age. I have just lost a really long blog entry because my VPN seems to be wonky, and I don’t have the inspiration to retrieve the early entry on how wonderful Gray Kunz is, and his childhood spent in Singapore living at Namly Avenue.
So I met THE legendary Gray Kunz and possibly had the best dish I ever had in HK, a simple saffron ravioli—a beautiful purse of one of the world’s most expensive spice, leaving a lingering ghostly trail of grassy notes from the saffron. My dining companion had a beautiful avocado salad, which was a perfect example of simple ingredients made luxurious, it was fresh and zesty, giving it a perfect balance to the creamy richness of the fruit.

I forget the name of this lovely lobster dish my dining companion was having, but the big forkful I stole was fantastic.
On a separate note, the Chinese twitterzens are in a frenzy about the #GFW trending topic. I doubt it would change the status of the stone internet age we’ve been banished to. I will take deep breaths and accept that it is something I cannot change apart from leaving, which I’m not quite ready to do.cafe gray, chef gray kunz, eats, gray kunz, Hong Kong, hotel, swire hotels, Travel, upper house
