It had been a while since I had been to the area of Wan Chai that The Principal is located. It's just behind Pacific Place Three on the ground floor of a residential high-rise building.

The dining area is warmly lit and tables are comfortably spaced. The room is very welcoming and elegant. I was running a bit late but quickly felt myself relaxing and enjoying the surroundings.

Jonay Armas is a young chef who has just been awarded his first Michelin star. Originally from Spain, Armas finds inspiration for his dishes from the raw ingredients he sources. The degustation and a la carte menu served here features dishes with unassuming names such as Oyster, Caviar, Bread, Cheese, Tartare, Duck, and Pigeon.

With emphasis on the raw ingredients that make up each dish, Armas has created an intriguing menu that has the diner wondering what to expect and expecting it to be wonderful.

"The food that I bring to the table is a journey, a search for ingredients that are driven by quality and provenance," Armas says.
