Shop 2007, LG1, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty Tel: 2918 1028 Open: 11.30-3pm, 6pm-10.30pm (Friday and Saturday until 11pm) Cuisine: Mediterranean. Price: About HK$320 for a three-course meal without drinks and before the service charge. Ambience: The space is almost unrecognisable from its former incarnation as French restaurant La Fourchette. It retains the 'outdoor' (as outdoor as you can be in a mall) area that's open to passers-by, but the dining room behind the bar now seems airy and light. Pros: The menu offers many tempting dishes, including a long list of tapas. Cons: Grilled chorizo with borlotti bean puree and red onion jam (HK$45) was nothing exciting - we expected a hearty dish of sausage and beans, but this was too refined, with the chorizo resting on small dabs of the puree. The seared prawns with paprika and garlic (HK$55) were mushy. Slow-roasted pork belly with braised cabbage, bacon, muscatel grapes and apple (HK$198) was the dish I was most excited about trying, and it was the biggest disappointment. The meat was dry, and the skin was hard and chewy. The sauce, however, was rich, and complex, with the grapes providing little bursts of juiciness. Recommended dishes: Due to a miscommunication, three of the five tapas we were served were fried, but we liked them a lot. Fried artichoke hearts with manchego cheese (HK$45) wasn't a dish we ordered, but it looked so good we didn't send it back. The three pieces were tender, and their bitter-sweet flavour was complemented by the salty manchego cheese. Crispy whitebait (above, HK$65) had been dipped in a tempura-like batter, and came with an aioli (garlic mayonnaise) dipping sauce. The same sauce was served with the Zelo golden crispy fries (above, right HK$35). My guest's main course of herbed and confit garlic baked ricotta raviolo with warm basil pistou, pinenuts and sun-dried tomatoes (right, HK$168) was a dish we'd order again. The homemade pasta was thin and the ricotta filling creamy and intensely flavoured. Dessert of pineapple three ways (HK$88) - sherbet, sweet and juicy pineapple, and slices of the roasted fruit - was a refreshing finish. What else? Zelo is part of the Gaia Group of restaurants, which includes Va Bene, Isola and Gaia.
