Another migrating Spanish franchise, this time from the original “el Willy” restaurant that opened in Shanghai in 2010 under the watchful eye of Barcelona-born Willy Trullas Moreno. The Hong Kong branch is overseen by fellow Catalan, Alex Martinez Fargas. Although sticking to “classic” dishes such as Iberico ham, also expect a contemporary touch (or rather “twist”) from the menu with things like scallop cerviche or beef cheek with banana & passion fruit crispy roll. An extensive and once again overwhelmingly Spanish wine by-the-glass list (with six sherries no less), the “premium wine” section only has cru classé Bordeaux and some white Burgundy. Vega Sicilia & co do feature in the Spanish side of the list (and very good it is too) but it seems a shame not to promote Spain’s top wines alongside the French heavyweights, particularly as in terms of price and Parker points (which are listed), Spain’s value and the evident esteem in which the wines are held rings out loud and clear.
