Gaia Group's latest offering is at the top of the new California Tower in Lan Kwai Fong. It exudes a trendy city vibe with its gold-framed bar at the entrance, full-height glass windows showcasing Central's cityscape, and a minimalist look in the dining area.

The new hot spot for cocktails, Townhouse also offers tasty bites. We started with a deliciously refreshing lychee iced tea with a rose twist (HK$62), along with cheese bread with black truffle butter (HK$48), and fries with melted cheddar cheese (HK$68). The bread was fresh and the cheese was not overpowering, while the fries were deliciously crispy.

Deep-fried foie gras (HK$98) then went well with the accompanying mango sauce, and the grilled cheese mango brûlée (HK$78) was deliciously light. The fruit salad with balsamico dressing and roasted peanuts (HK$98) is a balance of acidic and sweet flavours. For mains, the wagyu beef burger with black truffle mayonnaise and home-made pickle (HK$148), and the macaroni and cheese with baked sausage and mushrooms (HK$98) are both must-try classics.

For dessert, the wasabi chocolate mousse with lime sorbet (HK$88) offered a good balance of flavours. For cocktails, try the Dynamic Sparkle (HK$108) made with lavender-infused choya plum wine, peach liqueur, caramel syrup, cranberry and fresh lemon juice.
