Elegant premises of the premier First Class Lounge of Cathay Pacific in Hong Kong
Cathay Pacific is a Hong Kong-owned airline. It stands to reason that the first class lounge of any airline in the originator’s country will be the most elaborate and if I’m lucky enough to be in there, I always want to see how they do their food. The result in this premier lounge called The Pier is the service is at the very best you can find in some 3 Michelin starred restaurants and the food was nicely done and made to order. The champagne served in the lounge was Perrier Jouet Brut and Henriot Brut Rosé.
For ease, I have included photos of the menus, but the honey glazed pork ribs I had was good and lovely to see hand made chips to go with a very nice glazed brioche bun for the burger (the meat patty was fairly average). I also couldn’t help try the salmon teriyaki (very good with braised aubergine, white turnip and pearl rice and the signature noodles with hot peanut sauce which was enjoyable. All were served with no question of me asking for more and more (why wouldn’t you when virtually in a free restaurant and free bar?!) and combined with the complimentary massage, this was a beautiful lounge experience.
