<<22nd May 2019 – Hong Kong>> Aulis, the first international outpost of Michelin 2-star L’Enclume’s 12-seater chef’s table, welcomes founder and chef Simon Rogan back to the Hong Kong kitchen. For one week between 4-10 June, catch Rogan in action at both Aulis and farm-to-table restaurant restaurant Roganic, his second successful venture in Hong Kong and more affordable sister venue of Aulis. Arriving just in time to unveil new seasonal menus at both restaurants, Simon Rogan introduces fresh and innovative flavours on the various summer tasting menus.
This season, some of the new dishes exclusively on Aulis’ menu include a sumptuous Mushroom Wholemeal homemade bread with miso glaze, an emulsion of fresh Hong Kong Pea, Fermented Watermelon, Beetroot with smoked eel, and dessert of Earl Grey, Chocolate and Cherry Cake. Newly available on both Aulis and Roganic tasting menus include seasonal specials such as Oyster with cauliflower and pike perch roe, and a dessert of Tunworth Cheese with cranberry and hazelnut.
Some signature favourites remain, including the Grilled Salad, which uses a variety of in-season vegetables from local farms in the New Territories grilled over cherry-wood embers, resulting in a beautifully charred and smoky flavour. The pairing libation is Japanese sake from Tsuki no Katsura, one of the oldest sake breweries in the Fushimi area of Kyoto. Another longstanding Simon Rogan dish is Five-Flavour Cod Fish, created from a codfish flash-steamed for a minute and a half, then blowtorched. The cod sits on a bed of black garlic purée, with a sauce made with seaweed, the bones of the codfish, and an infusion of spices including vanilla, licorice, orange, lime and mint (the five flavours).

About Aulis Hong Kong
Aulis provides a truly unique ‘behind the scenes’ experience of the fine dining institutions, L’Enclume and Roganic. Aulis is a multi-functional hi-tech space and creative hub that acts as a development kitchen utilised by chefs to explore new dishes and cooking techniques, but also an exclusive, intimate and interactive private dining room for guests. In Aulis, guests can have the first try of dishes before they arrive onto the menus in a unique preview to the chef’s innovative work. The Aulis experience is completely personalised, depending on the group size and involves a complete surrender to the creativity of the chefs. A surprise many of different plates is created using ingredients from Our Farm, and are dishes not previously served at the individual restaurants. The Aulis experience aims to expand the culinary horizons of guests, with sometimes challenging or out of the box dishes for certain palates, but it remains a truly uncompromising foodie experience. The space is named Aulis as a tribute to Aulis Lehtimaki, a Finnish chef and artist who was a key collaborator in the early days of Simon’s Michelin star restaurant L’Enclume, and the concept also exists in that restaurant.
Aulis Hong Kong is Simon’s first overseas stand-alone dining destination in Asia with just 12 seats, acting as the creative hub for his Hong Kong team of chefs and offering diners the opportunity to immerse themselves in Rogan’s culinary vision first hand and be challenged to taste original and innovative dishes.
