MONTHLY REGIONAL MENU

Every third week of each month, starting from 26 May, 121BC celebrates the diversity of Italian cuisine by creating a themed menu of typical, classic, seasonal and sometimes unusual food from a particular region of Italy. A selection of regional dishes will be available as part of our a la carte menu in addition to the usual staple dishes. For those who wish to sample the majority of our a la carte menu may opt for the banquet menu. A wine flight which consists of 3 to 4 glasses will also be available if you wish to get a full 121BC experience.

Puglia: 26th – 31st May

Calabria: 16th -21st June

SNACKS  & SKINS

 

unnamed

As you know, 121BC offers a wine list that focuses on wines made by small artisan producers, and winemakers that work with their hands, without the use of chemicals. A particular section of our list is dedicated to “Macerated Wines”, more commonly known as “Orange Wines” because of their characteristic amber colour. A Macerated Wine is simply the result of a white grape varietal, that has spent some maceration time in contact with the grape skin, creating a product with more tannin, depth of flavour and texture (plus intensity of colour of course!).

With “Snacks & Skins” we’re introducing a fun journey; a search for the most suitable dishes to pair with these wines, through scents, tastes and flavours. Below is a recent example:
 
A glass of 2010 Ezio Trinchero Bianco (Malvasia di Candia, Arneis – Piemonte) $80
Served with Pork Crocchetta

“SNACKS & SKINS” is available daily from 5.30pm – 7.30pm.

Parents looking for new places to take children for early Sunday suppers can bring their little ones to 121BC for a good wholesome house-made meal. Kids dinner offers a choice of homemade pasta with tomato, or butter and parmesan sauce served with a side of vegetables and a scoop of gelato for dessert.

ABOUT US:

It started with a few overnight jaunts on the way to Italy to source wine. Rubbernecking at a new city.  A glass or two of natural wine at ‘la cabane au vin’, SoHo, HK. A few evenings snaking through the streets, scoping out neighbourhoods. Now 121BC Hong Kong has opened in Peel Street, Central.

121BC Hong Kong approaches wine with the same philosophy to that of its Sydney sibling. Sommelier Giorgio De Maria travels to vineyards across Italy where he meets with producers and sources artisan, minimal interventionist wines for both Hong Kong and Sydney. There is always a variety by the glass to taste from the burgeoning collection, and there are some fine back vintages, like the 1943 Borgogno Barolo, which display the work of masterful producers.

The dynamite team is guided by ex Vini head chef Daniel Johnston and the food made in the same spirit of Vini and 121BC Sydney – Italian family style, substantial share plates, caring cooking, and hand-made pastas and ricotta. The challenge of sourcing good produce has led to heartening local connections with rooftop gardeners (herbs and tomatoes), a company who recently planted cavolo nero, rocket and chicory seeds, and the only chemical-free pig farm in HK.
