It seems like everyone and their grandmas are launching a new seasonal menu as temperatures cool and we hear the distant tinkling of sleigh bells, but here’s one that has managed to pique our interest: Modern European restaurant Zurriola (18/F, The One, 100 Nathan Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, 2253-7111) is offering a winter game menu through December featuring wild meats such as venison, pheasant and boar.

The wild boar bourguignon sounds like Julia Child’s rebellious half-sister, while venison loin with Hokkaido pumpkin and black walnuts has us seriously rethinking our Thanksgiving menu. If you’ve never enjoyed the robust flavors of game before, this may be the perfect opportunity to indulge your wilder side—probably paired with one or two of Zurriola’s excellent cocktails.
