Shelter Italian Bar and Restaurant at the Hysan Place is a forward-thinking dining concept by Shelter Census Group, with a mission to encourage a sustainable and responsible lifestyle in Hong Kong. The establishment hopes to achieve this objective by emphasizing the provenance of the ingredients – organic produce used where possible – to prepare the Italian menu. The Restaurant’s commitment to encourage sustainable living in the city extends to collaborations with community non-profits such as the eco-friendly social enterprise Green Monday. Executive chef Simonetta Garelli put together a menu dominated by northern Italian specialties in addition to a few regional dishes such as Tuscan specialties. Her culinary expertise in sublime preparations such as the lobster cream soup infused with homegrown lemongrass and mint; hand-rolled pici spaghetti tangled in spicy red sauce made with organic tomatoes; and monkfish tail sous vide-style with cannellini beans, salami and peppers. For secondis, try the prime tenderloin steak, the hormone-free beef pan-seared then served with beer foam and organic tempura vegetables. Finish the meal with the vegan-friendly cheesecake, a low fat version of the dessert prepared without any eggs or cream cheese. Additionally Shelter Italian Bar & Restaurant features a teatime menu (available from 15:00-17:30) and a pizza selection defined by popular flavours.
