A local HK home cook, chasing after my food dream. I love food, so I spend most of my time learning about food! I like to eat, cook and learn about different food cultures when traveling. Apart from cooking, I love dogs and enjoy volunteering with my dogs.
This was my first time using Plate Culture, and dinner with Chris exceeded my expectations. Both Chris and his furry friends were welcoming and friendly. Rather than a home cook serving us dinner, it felt more like I was visiting an old friend for dinner. We even got a photo with the family at the end! I went with the butcher's cut menu, and every dish came with a distinct, differentiated, and delicious taste and presentation. I will most definitely be using plate culture again. Thanks Chris!
My girlfriend and I haven't been back to Kennel Kitchen in over a year, and as good as it was then, the improvements with Chris' cooking, particularly his plating and attention to detail, have been remarkable.
We went with the seafood menu, and before we started Chris gave us a complimentary bottle of wine. The first dish was Kumamoto 2 ways, raw garnishing and rockafeller. My girlfriend who generally hates baked oysters loved this, as everything one top was perfect without over cooking the oyster. The beef tar tar, which I've had before, was so much better this time, and just beautifully presented. Then we got a scallop and cream sauce dish, which was by far my favourite dish of the night. Perfectly seared scallops on a bed of finely cut mushrooms and herbs, and a thin and crispy parmesan chip. Then there was a homemade uni pasta, with some caviar garnishing. Initially I thought this dish would be too heavy, but the lightness of the homemade pasta was the real highlight, complimenting the other heavier and sweeter ingredients. The last main dish was a nice poached and smoked lobster with some kale chips, which was a great way to end the main meal.
I've said this before, but I can't recommend this place enough. And I didn't even mention getting to play with all the great furry friends Chris has on hand. Definitely coming back with a few more friends soon
Chris is a wonderful host. I really enjoyed the dinner. Everything prepared by Chris was absolutely delicious and the presentation was excellent. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and pay another visit.
I have had 5 plate culture experiences so far, while I have enjoyed every host's company and every play culture experience, I can't stress enough how Chris' food and hospitality is outstanding/ top notch. He is casual , unpretentious and amicable, made us felt right at home at his home while managed to maintain his professionalism. his food is Michelin star level. It's the definition of five star fine dining served in a warm home. And don't get me started on his fur babies. The material he cooks with is of highest standard, he is a rare gem, really no need to look further on plate culture.
Fantastic experience! Food was absolutely delicious and good value for the money. Chris was very communicative prior to booking and easy to talk to throughout dinner. The apartment was very neat and well decorated with love. Extra bonus to the fluffs adding a cozy homey touch to this dinner. We will definitely come back!!!
Visited Kennel Kitchen with my family and we got the sea to table menu. Food was GREAT! The food had so much flavor and we were super full by the end of the meal. Lovely hosts and super cute dogs & cats!!! Everyone must visit Kennel kitchen!
We are definitely going back to try their butchers menu.
First-time experience with Plate Culture! Just love it! Chef Chris is a great chef with cooking skills that beat at least 50% of the western restaurant in HK! We had a wonderful time at his apt with his dogs! Highly recommended!
