Prior to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Hong Kong‘s TEST KITCHEN, the brainchild of Vincent Mui, was responsible for hosting over 100 pop-ups with different chefs from all over the world. The concept was a chance to show the local culinary scene snapshots of the diverse flavors from all over the globe while showcasing the talents of up-and-coming, critically acclaimed, and even Michelin Star chefs.
With air travel shuttered, the team at TEST KITCHEN has now resorted to a new way of displaying its love for food — now with a more localized approach with a grab-and-go menu. This “street-food-meets-fast-casual” concept strays from TEST KITCHEN’s customary 8-course tasting menus with wine pairing, and now elects for more approachable and casual food that can be ordered for takeout.
While the dining experience has been simplified, the preparation and ingredient sourcing remains very TEST KITCHEN. Giving an example of things to come was a special pop-up where TEST KITCHEN chefs Peter, Jenga, and Cam delivered a homestyle take on pulled pork sandwiches — backyard slow-smoking the meat for 18 hours. The set was finished with a bourbon ice-cream sandwich, cheese fries, and popcorn shrimp.
Look for an exciting new menu to pop up once a month during the weekends.
