22 Ships @ Wanchai, HK

Jason Atherton is not an unfamiliar name in the culinary world, having earned his first start with Pollen in London. Then he brought his Pollen restaurant to Gardens by the Bay and that was fantastic. 22 Ships was his first outing to Hong Kong, serving Spanish Tapas in a casual setting. Advertisements

Kurotaki 黑瀧板蕎麥專門店 @ Hong Kong

Set lunches are the best value-for-money way to savour the best of some of the best restaurants in Hong Kong can offer. And then there are the “professional” set lunch places that also cater to the budget-constrianed diners. Kurotaki offers value set lunches (and dinners). It’s a soba specialist store, so be aware that everything…

Kani-ya Crab and Teppanyaki @ Hong Kong

Snow Crab was in season and we found a place in CWB that served an all-crab-feast. The crab was served in all style imaginable – raw, steamed, cold, grilled, in Shabu-shabu. All parts of the crab was served without waste.

Kum Gao Kei 金九記 @ HK

Seafood in Hong Kong IMHO is the best in the world. Not only do they have the variety due to the central location among the producers in the regions plus an excellent logistics hub that bring in the delicious morsels from faraway lands, the cooks in Hong Kong have always never fail to excite me…

Joy Hing @ Wanchai, HK

Hong Kong is the de facto food capital of the world and when they introduced Michelin stars in Hong Kong and Macau, many critics were up in arms. How do you grade an outlet like Joy Hing?

Sen-ryo 千両 @ Times Square CWB Hong Kong

Sen-ryo 千両 is a chain sushi restaurant in Singapore belonging to the Genki Sushi group. Why are they not in SIngapore? Very high quality at reasonable prices. Found in multiple locations.

Him Kee Hotpot 謙記火鍋 @ Hong Kong

The hotpot scene in Hong Kong has seen many players came and went every year. Once it was swarmed with China-based chains like Little Sheep 小绵羊, Tam Fishhead 谭鱼头 and many others. They came, they were popular for a while and then they disappeared. What remained were the Hong Kong-styled hotpot restaurants – great stock,…

22 Ships @ Hong Kong

Tapas bar by Jason Atherton. Found in a really non-describe neighborhood in Wanchai. Make a trip there if you must.

Jun Jun 津津食家 @ Shatin, HK

Jun Jun 津津食家(don’t have an English name) was a DaiPaiDong along Shatin, when Shatin was the outpost in New Territory, Hong Kong. This was where the bus ended and private buses continued into the borders of NT and then Shenzhen (which was not linked and was still farmland and marshes). And I am only talking…

Island Seafood and Oyster Bar @ CWB

Hong Kong, culinary capital of the world, the best place to have oysters other than in France in my humble opinion. Oysters are flown in daily from different parts of the world to feed a huge international crowd. One of my favourite is the Island Seafood and Oyster Bar at Causeway Bay. It has been…

Lunch at Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant 百樂潮州酒家

15 May, 2014 Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant 百樂潮州酒家 Airport restaurants are usually quick meals and taste quite bad. Hong Kong airports have the rare exception to provide excellent food since the Kai Tak days. Starting from Prince restaurant 太子樓 that provided excellent dimsum to Hereford steakhouse (closed), I always looked forward to a meal…

A Hong Kong Wedding Dinner

Hong Kong is the gourmet capital of Asia, so how’s a wedding dinner like in the Pearl of the Orient? Definitely not your run-of-the-mill type, not in the Banker’s Club. The outstanding dish for the evening was the Glutinous Rice with Preserved Meat. A roadside delicacy, this has been updated to a gourmet dish.
