Chef Director Chris Woodyard and Head Chef Andrew Braham have put in plenty of heart into Madam Sixty Ate, and it shows in the details. From the hand illustrated menu featuring cauliflower-tailed fish and bunnies nesting in pea pods, to the edible art pieces that come pouring out of the open kitchen, there are quirky personal touches sprinkled throughout the restaurant. It all starts at the elevator, where a pig (her name is Eliza) greets diners in her wooly attire.

Sensing my apparent obsession with the illustrated items, the restaurant manager gave me a whole set of coasters. Thank you so so much :)

It has been months since I dined here, so I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. As it was a public holiday, the normal lunch sets (148~178 HKD + 10%) was not available, so we went a la carte. Here’s everything we tried:

Bread and smoked butter

Pig in sheep’s clothing – Crispy pork belly, prawn toast and tomato pepper ragout, 100 HKD

Crispy pork

Seared cod and brandade, potato wafer with black olive powder, 90 HKD

A moment with Sophie-braised rabbit papperdelle, feves, green olives and lemon foam, 180 HKD

Fish & Chips ‘dedicated to Stanley’ – cauliflower crush, vinegar crumbs, crisp batter and tartare buerre blanc, 200 HKD

“Chips”

I was especially fond of the braised rabbit papperdelle, feves, green olives and lemon foam (180 HKD). It seemed like the papperdelle was cooked right in among the ingredients, absorbing the stock until the pasta itself became one with the braised rabbit, the feve beans, and the green olives. I also remember being impressed by the seared cod and brandade, potato wafer with black olive powder (90 HKD), but the other two dishes are a blur now.

Dining room with open kitchen

While not everything we tried was memorable, Madam Sixty Place is a charming place I’d be happy to return to. Next time, I’ll reserve some time before or after the meal for cocktails in the study room-themed bar and lounge area.
