Chef Chat: Conor Beach, executive chef at Repulse Bay’s Tri

When you walk into Repulse Bay’s Tri, you walk through a world that’s modelled on rural Balinese life. It’s fitting, as the eatery at The Pulse mall claims to be Hong Kong’s first Balinese restaurant. Certainly, it takes as many natural elements from the Indonesian island as it can. Mini-huts made of bamboo and lotus pod chairs feature across the venue, set against surrounds that take their motifs from Bali’s natural environment and culture. Plus, at Tri, the wow factor doesn’t just end inside. Outside, there are stunning views of Repulse Bay and the sea. This is as much an island paradise as it is a restaurant.

And the name, Tri, is based on the Balinese philosophy of ‘tri hita karana’, the three ‘causes of well-being’ – namely, the harmony between man, nature and divinity. And there’s yet another island theme. The chef’s name: Beach. Conor Beach, originally from the USA, heads this Southside restaurant, which opened at the end of last year, with aplomb. Executive chef Beach’s love of cooking began when he was just eight-years-old, in a busy family with his five siblings. From confectioneries to fresh pastas and barbecued meat, he would spend hours researching cooking techniques and trying his own dishes. Later on, he took up a career as a chef. By the time Tri opened, he
