Seasonal menu changes at Andō, TCA+ Delivers and more


Take a break from the hubbub of takeout you ordered last week and head out for a true restaurant experience this week. They still exist! Not without sanitized hands, two per table and all with care, of course.

To inspire another long week of working from home, here’s a little help from our F&B friends to bring back a normality that goes beyond eating from your office sofa: A new seasonal menu at Andō one-star (set your reminders: reservations are open tomorrow, March 1, at 12 p.m.), the refined specialties of the Franco-Japanese steakhouse, BIFTECK and Plated Afternoons from the Black Sheep restaurants with Carbone, Le Garçon Saigon and Fukuro.

But if you’d rather stay home, having bought a whole new set of cutlery and crockery to keep up with the long hours of breakfast, lunch and dinner at home, we understand. The Coffee Academics has just rolled out its own delivery service, TCA+ Delivers and RŌNIN and Yardbird are making delicious takeaways that will taste great wherever you sit.

Andō presents a new seasonal menu

Agustin Balbi’s Andō has garnered a list of adoring fans, phone reservations, and Michelin stars since it opened in 2020, and that list will only grow. Known for the Argentinian chef’s Japanese-influenced Spanish cuisine, the menu is a collection of Chef Agustin’s childhood flavors inspired by his lolahomemade dishes.

Tokyo-trained chef Agustin – who has experiences at 2-Michelin-star Zurriola, 3-Michelin Nihonryori Ryugin and 2-Michelin Michel Troisgros – continues an innovative new menu for the season that embraces both his training and his roots. He understands the Tardes In Palermoa starter of French blue lobster with cauliflower and Kristal caviar in a roasted piquillo pepper sauce; Que Raro Este Flana savory version of the typically sweet flan made with Japanese Ama Ebi and steamed clams in chawanmushi egg custard; Medio Mundo, line-caught sea bass served with white beans, Japanese nameko mushrooms and smoked Spanish bacon; and Risas Del Jardinan Argentine Hereford beef dry aged for 21 days.

The gourmet signature of the menu Sin Lolamakes a return, of course, where the Andō version of the traditional Spanish arroz caldoso now features Hokkaido Yumepirika Brittany blue lobster rice, cecina, snow crab and chilli. Composed of six or eight courses, the menu ends with Mi Domingo Favoritoa wagashi-style dessert of garrapinadamaple syrup and caramelized pecans.

And that also includes you, dear friends of Kowloon and the New Territories. Ultimately!
