AMMO [Hong Kong] - Flavours of Spain in June 2017, AMMO Dinner Menu $560 Per Person

  AMMO, which stands for Ammunition at Admiralty had a quick new change of Concept, and is now headed by Chef Nunez,  who used to look after ISONO & Vasco from the same Dining Group.  The Menu is now predominantly Spanish fare with Mediterranean accent,  a little further west in flavors compared to its previous Italian image and pasta dishes.  Coinciding with the 2017 June 'Flavours of Spain' Promotion together with Feedmeguru.com , here we were trying out the 4 Course Dinner for HKD $560 per person. 

The Copper Tubes and Pipes,
back to the familiar AMMO Theme of the Bar & Restaurant

Welcome Sangria Drink -
Part of the $560 Menu,  although I opted for the 'Virgin' non-alcoholic version this time.

 Entrée Option 1 - Green & White Asparagus
Seasonal, looking pretty like a Salad..

Entrée Option 2 -  Beetroot and Walnut Salad
With a few Beetroot types and textures, including Chips and a Beet Tartare,  Gel, etc.  It's quite healthy yet somehow I expected some Goat Cheese in there somewhere!

Warm Bread -
The Olive Oil is really good.

2nd Course Option - Fregola with Sea Urchin and Mussels
It was either this or the Pork Paella below.  Initially we thought this might be better value for money,  and it was nicely oceanic rich.  In hindsight we also like the paella below so it's good to order both for contrast..

2nd Course Option 2 - Pork Paella
The Menu actually looked simpler than some other fancy restaurants,  but here were some well grilled and spice rubbed Pork pieces.   With flavorful rice and a smidgeon of melty Allioli sauce on top.   My only concern initially was that served in a glass container,  it might not have much of the crispy 'socarrat' rice layer.  A lot of modern Paella recipes are like this style lately!

3rd Main Course - Daily Fish cooked Basque Style with Grebeche Sauce
I was saying on Instagram that this portion of Fish Filets was actually generous and it was crispy on the skin.  It arrives with some cauliflower mash and Spanish version of Gribiche sauce..

3rd Main Course Option 2 - Iberian Pork Collard with Roasted Peppers
This looked pretty and pinkish, the best way to enjoy this flavorful and meaty cut.  It was more crunchier yet tender than I'd envisaged, it's almost like eating meat with melted sinew or collagen inside.  Chinese eaters should enjoy this texture!

Dessert Course 1 - Lime Cloud with Pistachio Sponge & Coconut Ice Cream
A colourful looking dessert with Molecular Sponges,  this is quite Modern Spanish style dessert.  The Lime Cloud tasted like gel.  I thought this needed slightly bolder flavors somewhat to stand out?

Dessert Option 2 - Crème Catalan Foam Sauteed Pineapple & Caramel Ice Cream
I much preferred this dessert, with the caramelized pineapple bits sweetness, also an egginess in the crème.  Again a modern take on a classic Spanish Crema Catalana dessert,  which I just had a similar one at Fofo by El Willy!
