Se Sa Me Makes Way for The Salted Pig
We were never overly fond of the “Japanasian” restaurant Se Sa Me at L Place, and it seems like we were not alone. It only officially opened on March 7 of this year, but a short five months later, Shore Group has decided to close it.
In its place will be a new restaurant called The Salted Pig. Headed by chef Jason Black (who is also the executive chef of Shore), the restaurant will focus on all things porcine. Using primarily the Duroc breed of pig, The Salted Pig will serve a mainly European menu. In the words of chef Black, this will mean pork knuckle with sauerkraut or pork loin schnitzel, rather than any Asian-fusion pork dishes. In addition, The Salted Pig will grind their own pork for burgers, as well as make terrines, sweet Italian sausage and chorizo in-house.
The price point at The Salted Pig will be very reasonable: lunch sets start around HK$88 while main courses at dinner will be between HK$150 and HK$200. The atmosphere is designed to be rustic and family-style, with feast menus available for sharing between two or four people.
The Salted Pig is due to open in September at 2/F L Place, 139 Queen’s Road Central.
