The tender apple wood-roasted 42-day Peking duck, served with thin pancakes, with a subtle smoky flavour, is a must-eat that has to be pre-ordered 48 hours in advance.
People enter another world when they descend Mott 32’s spiral staircase into a stylish industrial dining room, in the basement of the Standard Chartered Bank building in central Hong Kong.
The food is a modern take on mainly Cantonese specialties, along with a few Sichuan and Beijing dishes, all using first-rate ingredients.
In one of the glamorous dark rooms, with mirrors and oriental papers on the walls, diners will settle in leather and velvet banquettes to enjoy sweet crusted pork buns or the char sir pork that arrives crackling at the table with a light and crispy sugar-coated skin, giving way to an incredibly soft and fragrant Iberico meat.
