Fifty 8º Grill features a ‘craft above creation’ approach to cooking, by which exceptional ingredients and traditional recipes presented with a contemporary twist take centre stage. In addition, we offer a wide selection of fresh meats cooked over a wood fire and braised at low temperature.
Featuring a working French artisan’s kitchen serving hand-carved charcuteries, wood-fired dry-aged meats and fresh-baked sourdough breads, our menu also includes several bistro favourites, delicious desserts and a selection of French artisan cheeses. To complement the menu, we have a large cellar incorporating around 250 labels.
Born in Holland, Chef Consultant Richard Ekkebus fell in love with food as a child. Following in the footsteps of his restaurant-owning grandparents who taught him the importance of using only the freshest produce, he is now regarded as one of the best chefs in the world.
Having trained under Michelin-starred Dutch chefs Hans Snijders and Robert Kranenborg, Ekkebus refined his techniques working with French masters such as Alain Passard, Guy Savoy and Pierre Gagnaire. From there he spent time honing his skills in Mauritius and Barbados before bringing his commitment and skill to Amber at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong in 2005. He has recently joined Fifty 8° Grill as Chef Consultant.
Amber was recently voted Best Restaurant in China in the inaugural ‘Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants’ list and has been awarded two Michelin stars by the Michelin Guide for Hong Kong and Macau for the past four years. Among his many recent accolades, Chef Ekkebus was named ‘Best Chef’ in Hong Kong Tatler’s Best Restaurant Guide 2013, and ‘Chef of the Year’ at the prestigious Quintessentially Awards Asia Pacific 2011.
