Felix Goes Wild for the Flavours of the Forest

Peak wild mushroom season reaches a crescendo during autumn and early winter, with a glorious abundance anticipated by chefs and gourmands around the world. From 12 November to 16 December, guests are invited to discover the wondrous versatility of mushrooms with a visit to Felix, where sweeping views of Victoria Harbour set the scene for an exquisite tasting menu crafted by Chef de Cuisine Juan Gomez. By highlighting the delicious scope of foraged mushrooms with inspired dishes and cocktails, Gomez proves these seasonal treasures are more than just a garnish.

Patrons of the Wild Mushroom Felix Experience can look forward to a five-course indulgence with the spotlight firmly placed on the best in-season mushrooms available. Inspired by Chef Gomez's culinary imagination, this seasonal epicurean experience promises to tantalise the taste buds with whimsical presentations and inventive flavours inspired by the forager's bounty.

The experience begins with a Wild mushroom soup with foie gras toast and green apple relish before moving on to a masterful course of Matsutake mushroom with butter poached king crab and oyster leaf - a flawless pairing of this rare, aromatic mushroom with king crab's sweet appeal. Black trumpet with octopus terrine, espelette parmentier and garlic chips is a spellbinding taste sensation, while a choice between Yellow chanterelles with John Dory loin or Ceps with Australian black market beef steak, orzo pasta, roast pumpkin and charred onions offers the very best of land and sea. A dessert of Black fig flambé reveals a satisfying conclusion to a meal that balances Gomez's nuanced understanding of mushrooms with Felix's unimpeachable flair.

Available from 12 November to 16 December, the delectable Five-course Wild Mushroom Felix Experience Menu is priced at HK$ 1,288* per person. Three and six glasses of wine pairing with the menu are also available for HK$ 1,788* and HK$ 1,988* per person respectively.
