(SWIPE FOR MORE PICS) The first pic was @chezcalvert at ODE x BELON in TOKYO (2018), the city he is heading to. At that time he probably never imagined he would open his own restaurant in Tokyo, at least not so soon. He probably never expected to be at no.4 of Asia’s 50 Best this year. He did it the “hard” way - worked really really hard waking up early in the morning and went to Belon to make bread at 8 or 9am. He was extremely hand on and knew any details on any dishes you asked... More

(SWIPE FOR MORE PICS) GIROLLE MUSHROOM “TARTE FINE” WITH "LARDO DI COLONNATA” AND THYME
(Circa 2020) @[instagram] Belon, Hong Kong
_
This new dish of this year was a clever creation. The base was very thin layer of puff pastry, crispy and flaky. Girolle mushroom mousse sat above was topped with slightly pickled girolle mushroom, fine chopped celery and almond silvers all covered with a blanket of lardo di colonnata (one of my favorite Lardo). The sauce to finish was almond emulsion with thyme... More

What is inside the white truffle cream cake? Literally, crepes, piedmont hazelnut cream and (@chezcalvert stressed “lots of” ) white truffle slices, in many many layers. The sweet cream was so creamy and rich, but I believe his words that there were a lot of truffle was the aroma and flavors was so intense, it hit the brain one bite after another. So so so good. I felt like in heaven.

See the video after the picture, you could feel the texture more. So ethereal.

Thank you Daniel... More

For all the fans of @chezcalvert don’t worry this is not baby Daniel but the prince of @thejowski . He is still available ?

Belon serves good food, has a great hospitality team (@chezcalvert @henry.quach did I get it right ?), it fits into the category of top of the best restaurants in HK. Does that mean it is a place that people like to go back?

For me a restaurant can be great but I only want to return to those when the chef is respectable and with... More

Modern French bistro serving food which is on the verge of fine dining. The home made bread is one of the best you can get and even satisfies the discerning Austrian diner.
Chef's Daniel pies are simply sublime! His newest creation the sweat bread pie is soft in texture but within the pastry it totally works. His classic pigeon pie is extraordinary. He will take it off the menu soon, so rush to get it before it is too late.
Two other great dishes worth mentioning is his Saba (mackerel) with asparagus... More

Another outstanding meal at @belonhk. I always want to try new things when I travel, but this place was so good last time, I had to come back. The food and wine are uniformly excellent, but the service sets them apart.

Absolutely blown away by an excellent dinner at @belonhk. If I lived here, I’d make a standing reservation. Squab Pithivier, savory Ikura Mille-fueille, scallop in pasta, “croque madame”, and much more. Highly, highly recommended.
