New restaurant blends premium Kobe teppanyaki with contemporary American luxe influences
June 22nd, 2020
Newly opened in Hong Kong’s Central district this month, Crown Super Deluxe offers a discerning clientele premium Kobe teppanyaki cuisine – with a contemporary dining experience that melds traditional teppanyaki cooking with a stylish 1960’s Tokyo inspired luxe. The latest restaurant concept among the impressive assemblage of restaurants under the Black Sheep Restaurants group, Crown Super Deluxe takes its name from Japan’s iconic black 1980’s Toyota taxis – a nod to their exceptional service standards. Under the direction of veteran teppanyaki Chef Toru Takano, diners can expect a menu of teppanyaki classics with a focus on beef, showcasing the best grain-fed steaks from USDA Prime; Australian Wagyu; and a rotating premium selection from small Japanese farmers specialising in well-marbled cuts of beef.
Conveniently located on the mezzanine level of the LKF Tower on Wyndham Street, the restaurant features a bold interior design highlighted by golden onyx counters, mustard velvet mid-century inspired armchairs, plush purple carpet and brushed gold chandeliers. Within the main dining lounge – the central 20-seat octagonal teppan is the centrepiece – flanked by two smaller side teppans. An adjoining dessert and whisky lounge seats 30 guests in low chairs where French Nouvelle Cuisine patisserie classics are complimented by vintage Japanese whiskies and American bourbons.
Teppanyaki cuisine at Crown Super Deluxe is highlighted by the Deluxe pre prixe menu (HK$1188 per person) – featuring a selection of Toyosu Market Sashimi, Tokushima Fruit Tomato with Japanese Sea Salt, and Teppan Spiny Lobster in Coral Butter; A5 Kagoshima Wagyu Beef served with signature Crown Sauces; and finishing with Lobster Miso Soup and Wagyu & Garlic Fried Rice.
Currently Crown Super Deluxe serves dinner – only Tuesday to Sunday from 6 pm – with a lunch service expected in the coming months.
