Setting

From its vertiginous 21st floor perch atop Tsim Sha Tsui’s The One, Wooloomooloo Prime offers panoramic views of the city from expansive windows that encase its contemporary yet cosy dining room and lounge. There’s also a spacious outdoor terrace ideal for pre-dinner cocktails or end-of-evening nights caps. Dark-wood tables and plump scarlet leather chairs are positioned with the privacy of diners in mind, and mirrored columns reflect the stunning vistas from every angle. A cool, jazzy playlist is upbeat, but unobtrusive. If you can tear your eyes away from the view, diners can watch the culinary action unfold in the open kitchen.

Food

Wooloomooloo Prime specialises in premium Australian Black Angus beef, ranging from the 10oz grass-fed filet mignon to the 350-day grain fed wagyu tomahawk steak, which is suggested for sharing between two to three people. There are also prime cuts from the US and a herd of steak alternatives including seafood, spatchcock chicken, lamb cutlets and grilled Boston lobster. It’s slim pickings for vegetarians though, with a lone spinach and ricotta ravioli main course option. Made with 8oz Australian filet mignon, the beef wellington is tender, and oozes rich, meaty juices with every bite. The earthiness of the mushroom balances the salty tang of the Parma ham, while the slathering of foie gras lifts the dish to heavenly realms. As requested, the USDA 12oz rib eye was perfectly pink and rare with a delicate crust, which is accompanied by four sauces, although we found the intense meaty flavour of the steak satisfying on its own. While the steaks are definitely the star attraction, the starter of sashimi-grade yellowfin tuna and spanner crab is a great way to kick-start your taste buds, courtesy of a zesty hit of orange, fresh coriander and crunchy shallots. Make sure to leave room for the Pavlova – a delicate union of light, crispy meringue, fresh fruit and fluffy Chantilly cream, drizzled with passion fruit coulis.

Wine

There are a generous 17 wine options by the glass and an equally impressive selection of bottles (and a few half bottles) from some of the world’s top wineries. Cocktails such as the Hong Kong-inspired Lamma Sunset is worth a try – a sweet and summery blend of vodka, banana and peach liqueur, coconut milk and pineapple juice.

Service

The helpful staff are attentive but never invasive, and eager to show off their impressive menu knowledge by suggesting dishes to match your cravings, and wines to complement each course.

Price   $$$$$

With spectacular views and premium grade steaks, expect dinner for two including a glass of wine each to come in at approximately HK$2,000.
