Michelin movers: which Hong Kong restaurants earned their first star?

With great passion for gastronomy and devotion to his homeland’s exclusive ingredients, Madrid-born chef Antonio Oviedo has opened a new venture: Agora at Tai Kwun, Central. Meaning “now” in old Spanish, Agora offers a contemporary menu that explores seasonal Spanish delicacies including dried choricero chilli peppers, Gordal olives, a smoked fatty Spanish cheese called Gamonéu, and much more. One of the restaurant’s most notable offerings is the one-of-a-kind pil pil, a traditional cod confit dish that features the fish’s stewed tongue. Another is txuleta, a spicy and briny dish cooked from premium Spanish Rubia Gallega beef. To wrap up the night, there’s flor de azahar, a dessert derived from orange blossoms, and combined with Spanish almonds and saffron to sweeten the palate. Not surprisingly given the chef’s roots, Spanish wine takes up 70 per cent of Agora’s wine list, while being ever-changing in accordance with the seasonal menus.
