AMMO Restaurant Review

: Tucked into the slope between Hong Kong's business district known as Central and the mansions along the Peak, a former British Army explosives warehouse has been reinvented as Asia Society Hong Kong Center, a museum and cultural complex. Its in-house restaurant is perched between a cascading waterfall and thick forest. If such unexpectedly green views in this otherwise urban jungle don't take your breath away, the theatrical bullet-inspired brass interiors may do so. Just as provocative is the menu of chefs Tony Cheng and Roland Schuller, which starts with creative cocktails like the freshly squeezed kiwi basil martini. Or make your first sip a tapas such as the creamy cuttlefish cappuccino. We also like nibbling the meaty oxtail balls rolled with crunchy peanuts and cacao powder before sitting down at a green velvety banquette alongside floor-to-ceiling windows. Order from the well-balanced 300-label wine menu, or ask for staff recommendations. These can be relied upon to accompany the sweet and savory quail salad with grapes and pancetta to start, best followed by homemade pastas like the burrata ravioli and fettuccine heaped with Ibérico pork ragoût.
