Dóttir started life as a pop-up less than 18 months ago in Berlin and has since grown to a full-scale restaurant in the city’s trendy Mitte district.

In its first foray outside of Germany, Dóttir will launch in Hong Kong and host a four night pop up event in Sai Ying Pun in collaboration with Test Kitchen, a Hong Kong-based company renowned for bringing some of the most talented chefs to the city.

‘Dóttir’ is Icelandic for ‘daughter’ and is named after the young Danish-born, Icelandic-raised head chef, Victoria Eliasdóttir who initially trained in Iceland, before moving to the US for a four month stint as an apprentice with Alice Waters at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California.

Eliasdóttir’s team descending on Hong Kong includes Danish sous chef, Filip Søndergaard, Julia Heifer from Germany and Andrea Iannicella from Italy.

The seven-course dinner will pay homage to Eliasdóttir’s childhood as the daughter of a chef who worked for years on fishing boats.

Highlights include her slow-cooked fish with smoked buttermilk, carrots with seaweed vinaigrette and confit chicken cooked in duck fat with tarragon oil. Dinner will draw to a close with a white chocolate mousse with cassis granita and fresh blueberries in thyme syrup alongside a baked white chocolate and salted almond crumble.

The pop up will run from 28-31 July in 158A Connaught Road West, Shop 3, Sai Ying Pun with tickets priced at HK$1,280 with drinks pairings.
