The Pot Calling…

Credit: weekendhk.com

Upon coming home the other night, amidst the familiar chaos left behind by the cats during the day, I noticed something unusual: a pair of black Nike Roshe Run. I don’t mean predominantly black, but 100%, inside-out black. The pair that the boyfriend especially custom-made with NikeLab, out of his love of all things black, and his frustration that the blackest Nike Roshe Run would still come with a white rubber sole.

I can’t help but wonder if it’s this same penchant for the colour black that led the owner of Kettle Black to create a black menu, showcasing black ingredients the likes of squid ink, black garlic, charcoal bread and black truffles. You’ll sure be amazed by the Kettle Black Fried Chicken (HKD68) that look like charcoal pieces but are in fact fried with homemade charcoal-breadcrumb. The onion soup (HKD68) is also given a twist and presented with a black charcoal toast, layered with mozzarella and foie gras. A more filling option will be the foie gras and Wagyu burgers (HKD148) sandwiched with charcoal buns, served with fries and kimchi sauce. For that perfect beverage to wash down the food, get a bottle of the New Zealand-brewed Yeastie Boys Pot Kettle Black beer (HKD75).

So yep, a black-themed fare has just opened in the city, in case you’re stuck for outlets to get your black fix.
