Street Life 大街小巷 17:00 pm | Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens 香港動植物公園 Time for some fresh air. At the end of Caine Road is the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens perching causally on the slope of Victoria Peak. The 5.6 hectare site is divided into two parts – eastern and western – by Albany Road. Founded in 1871, the site was originally known as Botanic Gardens, which was renamed in 1975 as Botanical and Zoological Gardens with the addition of zoological exhibits to the garden. The eastern part is home to a variety of reptiles and mammals, while the western part, aka the Old Garden, features a green house, a fountain terrace and aviaries. On top of the beauty of nature is a list of historical importances, including the Memorial Arch, the Pavilion and the bronze statue of King George VI. 是時候來點清新空氣。沿堅道走至末端是香港動植物公園,低調地立於太平山 的山坡上。 公園佔地5.6公頃,分為東西兩區,以雅賓利道作分界。公園建於1871年,初 時命名為植物公園,及後改為香港動植物公園,並在園內加入動物品種。 東面區域有爬行類及哺乳類動物,西面(亦稱舊園)則有溫室、噴水池平台花 園及觀鳥園。 除了自然景觀,園內亦有不少古蹟,包括紀念牌坊、涼亭及喬治六世銅像。 www.lcsd.gov.hk 19:00 pm | SEPA Bacaro Veneziano A little Italian treat at SEPA Bacaro Veneziano is the perfect way to round up the day – if you’re OK to pay a little more. Founded by Michelin-starred Italian chef Enrico Bartolini, SEPA is a modern and posh reinterpretation of the “Bacaro” dinning concept from ancient Venice. I settle with the Wagyu Bolognese tagliatelle, sided with a glass of Tenuta Sassoregale Sangiovese; it’s marvellous to have the acidity of the wine perfectly backed up by the rich and meaty Bolognese sauce. But you can’t quite focus on the food here as the interior itself is also a masterpiece. Filled with a convivial vibe, the space draws inspiration from old Bacaro architectural features with the likes of alleyways and corridors on display. Neither too much nor too little, the HK$158 dish and the HK$88 glass of red is just perfect for a moderate dinner. Bringing a friend or two means that you can try a lot more dishes without having to spend a fortune. 若不介意貴一點,可以到SEPA Bacaro Veneziano意大利餐廳,為這趟旅程畫 上完美的句號。 這間由米芝蓮星級廚師Enrico Bartolini主理的餐廳,以嶄新時尚手法,演繹經 典的威尼斯「Bacaro」飲食主義。 我點了一份Wagyu Bolognese tagliatelle,配以一杯Tenuta Sassoregale Sangiovese。香濃的肉醬汁遇上葡萄酒的酸度,配搭得恰到好處。 食客在這裡很難專心用膳,他們都會不自覺被那富有品味、充滿喜悅的室內環 境所吸引。設計靈感源於Bacaro建築元素,從小巷及走廊的展示中可見一斑。 158元的意大利麵,再加88元的紅酒,以此作為是日晚餐,份量剛剛好。若想 多試幾道菜式,不妨相約朋友來這裡晚餐,吃多一些,又可省點錢。 4 5 61 Caine Road, Central 香港半山堅道61號 2521 9800 ww.discoverhongkong.com Albany Road, Central, Hong Kong 香港中環雅賓利道 2530 0154 38
