HYPEBEAST Eats... Marinated Scallops with Watercress and Wasabi by Chez Patrick Deli

Bringing French authenticity to the streets of Hong Kong, Chef Patrick Goubier has firmly established himself amongst the French expat community and locals alike as a genuine name for French cuisine – an often misled genre with a myriad of so-called French restaurants that fall short of the real thing. With both a restaurant and deli under his apron straps (both named appropriately after the maestro himself), Chef Patrick has adapted and elevated many dishes to the refined palate of Hong Kong whilst maintaining an aforementioned authenticity in taste and flare. One such recipe is his Marinated Scallops with Watercress and Wasabi – a dish that sums up the shores of Brittany, yet introduces an Asian twist with the use of wasabi, topped with fresh raspberries to balance the acidity with sweetness. Simple, fresh and elegant, this dish is perfect for the summer, and is an example of the quality and ingenuity that Chef Patrick brings to his Chez Patrick Restaurant that’s well worth the visit for a change from soft baguettes to foie gras on rice.
