If it’s led by David Laris, then you know it has to be good. As chief creative officer and chef at CACHET Hotel Group, you could say he’s something of a legend around Hong Kong. Perhaps one of his greatest creations is Central’s Porterhouse by Laris, an upscale restaurant that’s bringing superior quality steakhouse cuisine to local gourmands. Leaving no detail overlooked, this restaurant is shaping Hong Kong’s fine dining scene – you’ll find it on the seventh floor of California Tower on D’Aguilar Street, situated fittingly right in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong.
The Greek-Australian chef and restaurateur David Laris has earned celebrity chef status around the globe with award-winning restaurants Le Sheng, The Fat Olive, and 12 Chairs. His work can be seen through collaborations with major brands Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel, but you can experience his cooking ability for yourself while dining Porterhouse by Laris in the Lan Kwai Fong neighbourhood of Hong Kong’s Central, where only the very best ingredients are hand-selected for his restaurant’s discerning guests. The meat used at this gourmet steakhouse is of the highest standard, including cuts of Linz Heritage USDA, A4 Wagyu from Japan and Tasmanian grass-fed beef, and it’s aged to bring out the best possible flavour. As you may have already assumed, the wine selection is outstanding, and features a selection of varietals from across the globe that pair perfectly with the food on offer.
The menu at Porterhouse by Laris in Central goes above and beyond the average steakhouse menu, featuring a wide range of seafood dishes, European classics and decadent gourmet desserts. Starters like the pan-fried foie gras with toasted brioche, chili and date puree or the arugula & pickled beet salad pave the way for main courses like the 14oz Cape Grim Tasmanian rib-eye, the 8oz triple-seared A4 Wagyu and the 20oz Kansas City striploin. Up the ante by adding honey-glazed double smoked bacon or Canadian lobster tail to your steak, or simply choose from other mains like confit duck leg, bucatini pasta with burrata or slow-cooked Sakura chicken with spiced tomato and lime chutney. Desserts like baby shiraz-poached pears and Madagascar chocolate fondant are an absolute must before leaving this superlative steakhouse at Hong Kong’s California Tower on D’Aguilar Street. Booking ahead is essential.
