The Best For: Date night
Must Order: Trio of snacks and Porc Noir de Bigorre

Tucked away off Aberdeen Street, Beet has a SoHo location, yet manages to take it down a notch or two, for a relaxed pace. Sliding doors open onto a surprisingly quiet street and make for an authentic Hong Kong alfresco vibe, whilst retaining the low-key and chilled out atmosphere. It hits all the right notes for a great mid-week dining experience, and will remind you why you live in a big city. If I was taken here on a date, I’d be suitably impressed.

Beet Porc Noir

The decor is tastefully minimalistic; with concrete floors, an open floor plan and plenty of light. Exposed ceilings and an open kitchen also help with the contemporary appeal.

We think that the five-course tasting menu is the best option at Beet, with each course perfectly showcasing the fresh ingredients, and several one-of-a-kind dishes. The restaurant prides itself on classic and progressive cooking techniques that embody an authentic approach, in which taste is second to none, thanks to seasonal and locally sourced ingredients.

The Trio of Snacks whet our appetites for the courses to come. The potato crisp oozed flavour and the chicken parfait simply melted in my mouth; make sure you eat it whole to maximise on the creamy delight. It was served beautifully, and it’s clear that the attention here is in the detail. This was certainly the case for the sourdough bread that had been cultured over a course of weeks in the summer. Top marks for effort and taste. (Yes, I may have reached for a second slice.)
Beet Brussel Sprouts
We had Brussel Sprouts ($150) for starters, and it’s clear that sprouts have come a long way since the days when I was forced to eat them with my mum’s Sunday roast. I’m now definitely a convert. The garlic puree complemented the sprouts perfectly and they were cooked faultlessly.

The Porc Noir de bigorre ($360) and Te Mana Lamb ($270) were also divine. In fact, there was no way to fault Beet on taste or presentation. The food was simply delicious.

We finished with Brown Butter Financier with Blueberry Jam ($60), which was just the right way to end this delightful experience. I’ll most certainly be back.
