<<23rd October, 2018 – Hong Kong>> Located in the heart of Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, The Krug Room is the only one in the world to reveal the nuanced universe of Krug Champagne and offer hedonists a one-of-a-kind gastronomic experience. Created in partnership with Krug Champagne and Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, The Krug Room is led by the hotel’s Executive Chef Robin Zavou, himself an esteemed Krug-lover.
New Autumn Culinary Journey inside The Krug Room
This autumn, Chef Zavou takes inspiration from the season’s finest and most elusive ingredients to design the perfect pairing with different characteristic of Krug cuvees. The experience is further enhanced with The Krug Room’s transformation into a stunning autumn-inspired setting and display. Modern interpretations of ingredients from land and sea are seen throughout The Krug Room’s new 10-course autumn menu, including the amuse-bouche that features in-season ingredients such as Venison, Mimolette and Walnut.
The earthy and intricate Shiitake course features grilled fermented mustard seeds, black garlic, pickled cabbage, dried cabbage leaf, pine oil and a special porcini purée which is an evolution from the dish that was featured within Krug X Mushroom campaign. This is perfectly paired with Krug Rosé.
The Kinmedai is a revered deep-sea autumn/winter fish, and for this particular course, is prepared by frying with hot oil to achieve a crispy skin. The fish is served with braided abalone and its own liver sauce, contrasted by an Amalfi lemon purée. This is perfectly paired with Krug 2004, nicknamed “Luminous Freshness”.
For dessert, expect a perfect testament to the seasonal nut. The Hazelnut is comprised of 70% dark chocolate filled with Bailey’s ice cream, Praline espuma and chocolate sponge. This autumn dessert is paired with the classic Krug Grande Cuvée.

About the House of Krug
Krug has always lived up to its reputation as the first and still unique Champagne House to create only Prestige Champagne every year since its foundation. The House was founded in Reims in 1843, by Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to offer the very best Champagne every single year, regardless of climate annual variations. Paying close attention to the vineyard’s character, respecting the individuality of each plot and its wine, as well as building an extensive library of reserve wines from many different years allowed Joseph Krug to fulfill his dream. With a very original approach to Champagne making, he decided to go beyond the notion of vintage to create the fullest expression of Champagne every year. Thus, he founded a House in which all Champagnes are of the same level of distinction, each illustrating a particular expression of nature. Six generations of the Krug family have perpetuated this dream, enriching the founder’s vision and savoir faire.
