Four chubby tubes lay arranged in two rows on the plate in their light pink sauce; officially this was paccheri (the pasta) with a delicate tomato puree, spicy capocollo (cured pork slice) and Sardinian pecorino cheese foam.
wn set of two lifts from the hotel lobby of the recently built Ritz Carlton in West Kowloon. The lobby itself is on level 9, above the ballroom and function rooms, the hotel from floors 102 to 118 sharing this 490 metre tower with Morgan Stanley's corporate offices. The Ozone has a funky look, with comfortable seating clusters as well as bar stools. We choose an intimate lounge setting near the huge windows looking down over the harbour. Some people are eating, choosing from the Asian tapas and Japanese specialities. We didn't have the stomach space for it having just indulged in a culinary opera at the hotel's Italian restaurant, Tosca, on the 102nd floor.

He guided us through the menu with perfectly matched wines, each a surprise, all Italian and ranging from a northern region chardonnay to the lusty dessert wine to go with the pineapple hazelnut crunch, mango gelato and coconut sauce. That's why I had trouble remembering which champagne cocktail I had ordered at Ozone. We had only just landed in Hong Kong and were treated to a warm welcome by the ladies and gentlemen of the Ritz Carlton, as they are referred to by the management. That's how "old school" this place is, just like the chefs' whites, in contrast to the "new school" building (Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates of New York and Wong Ouyang of Hong Kong) and its design (public areas by Singapore's LTW Designworks, the bars and rest.
