SAAM 51 Graham Street, SoHo,2645 9828 www.saamhk.com You may miss SAAM on Graham Street if you don't pay attention. Its entrance is elegant and quiet, unlike some of the noisy eateries in the SoHo area. SAAM, which means "together" in Afrikaans, provides an international culinary experience without fuss. The restaurant's décor - simple and minimalist - seems to reflect this philosophy, with large wooden tables and an open kitchen filling the space. The staff is friendly and attentive. Despite its name, the food at SAAM is not South African cuisine. Instead, dishes feature a fusion of flavours from Asia, Europe and the Americas. Some are prepared using modern culinary technologies such as sonic prep and refrigerated centrifuge, which enhance the taste without artificial additives. We started off with the recommended beef tartare served "Gung Nam style" (HK$88). The morsels of raw beef mixed with kimchi over bite-size rice crackers were rich with a delicious spicy edge. Next was the smoked duck carpaccio (HK$138). The slivers of duck meat were delicately cooked. But our favourite was the springy and tender "cuttlefish" noodles (HK$168). For mains, we chose the Atlantic cod (HK$298) and the Ranger Valley wagyu flat iron (HK$488). The former was a straightforward dish that allowed us to enjoy the freshness of the fish without any distracting garnishes. The beef was equally impressive. We liked the casual, not-too-loud atmosphere and the warm service at SAAM and will go back.
