Hong Kong’s first pan-Latin restaurant,Picada (formerly from Elgin Street), has re-opened in LKF29. Named after a type of sharing platter from Colombia, Picada offers a selection of cuisine from various Latin cultures, from Argentinian steak to Venezuelan empanadas. Signature dishes include arroz con mariscos ($298), a slow-cooked seafood rice with Peruvian chilli, and arroz con pato ($238), where duck leg confit and smoked duck breast are served over coriander rice. Or if you prefer your Latin cuisine in liquid form, Picada’s signature cocktail El Dorado ($128) is a heady concoction of Colombian aguardiente, cocoa liqueur and gold leaf. Like the food, the 3,000-square-foot venue is a vibrantly hued, artful celebration of South America’s diverse terrain and will also house Hong Kong’s first Peruvian ceviche bar. There will also be regular live music and dance performances and an upstairs terrace lounge for those sizzling summer nights.
