Woo Bar, W Hotel Hong Kong - Upcycling, Eco is the New Black

 W Hotel’s around the globe often project itself as an upper-end trendy Boutique Hotel,  but lately they have also been very diligent with focusing on the Eco-Sustainable issue as a core concept of the hotel group and often carrying cross over events which strongly manifest this statement.   It is quite meaningful that part of the Eco-Sustainable cycle also extends to supporting local young Artists.   We even got to taste one of their new ‘Eco is the New Black’ food menu to be served in Woo Bar from 1st May 2015 – with an emphasis on sustainably grown and organic produce, and its majorly vegetarian focused too.

W Hotel x Yolande Parry -
Heirloom Tomato Salad with Organic Strawberry and Chili Lemon Grass Olive Oil
This was beautiful to look at.  Personally I wanted a bit of cheese to go with it but as it is,  it is a refreshing dish reflecting the Eco Theme.

San Daniele Prosciutto Tartine with Roasted Pepper, Asparagus & Fontina Cheese. With a Fontina Cheese Cappuccino and Toasted Ham.
The roasted veggies and melty fontina,  worked well with the San Daniele ham from Italy.   The side cheesy cappuccino lubricates the whole dish.  There's surprisingly 3 tartine sandwich portions on a plate so you can share ...

Grilled King Prawns with Garlic, Chili, Avocado, Thai Basil, Heirloom Tomato sauce and Fried Rice Cracker - $188
The tomato sauce tasted slightly crustacean to me too.  This seemed like a rendition of a slightly Spanish prawn dish for me.  Great with the rice crackers.

Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Mint, Pesto Sauce, 2 Types of Asparagus and Grilled Organic Mushrooms. Topped with Parmesan flakes -
Good vegetarian pasta cooked al dente, for some reason some bites I tasted a bit of Thai basil in the pesto or may be its the mint within.   A lovely dish surprisingly vegetarian based and the mushrooms were somehow meaty.

Fresh Fruits with Granola and Blueberry Gel to finish. So healthy -
With some Gold flecks.   Truth be told I somehow expected a more fanciful dessert but a pretty looking fruit platter definitely suits this purpose,  it makes you want to eat more fruits !

Did you really eat all of the fruit salad?
It’s definitely a meaningful collaboration between Artists,  an Eco sustainable future theme and the Food items.   Remember that during 1st-3rd May,  most of these artists and W Hotel will also be present at Dine & Design Market in Central.
