Hong Kong Restaurants
Hong Kong is widely known for its delectable food and abundance of Michelin star restaurants. This being said, you certainly don’t have to break the bank to experience top notch eateries in this city of culinary diversity.
As we love to explore everything a new country has to offer in terms of cuisine, we were spoilt for choice in Hong Kong. We had some of the most memorable food and beverage experiences on this trip and I am excited to share some tips and hidden treasures with you in this post.
This little gem Little Bao is a local’s hotspot and a MUST if visiting Hong Kong. A small venue with a modest shop front in the SoHo district, it is without doubt, a quirky restaurant we would highly recommend.
We tried a number options on the menu as we returned for a second visit…not something we often do on holidays but this was well worth breaking tradition for! The bao’s themselves are a no-brainer – but the fact that the bao buns are fresh and are made onsite, added a little extra deliciousness!
We tried most of the bao options on the menu (over two days!) but the most noteworthy in our opinion were the Szechuan Fried Chicken, Pork Belly and Fish Tempura.
Everything on the share menu looked like indulgence on a plate but we (eventually) decided on the loaded Truffle Fries and battered crust, Szechuan spice Hot Chicken and were not disappointed. This restaurant also had a trendy drinks list to match the funky and inviting atmosphere. The perfect location for a casual lunch or a trendy dinner with friends.
Tip 1: Due to its size and limited seating, be prepared to wait as this is a restaurant in high demand, but worth every second for those mouth-watering eats.
Tip 2: Little Bao opens for lunch and dinner every day, but be sure to check opening times on the day you intend to visit as times varies on the weekend.
Another funky find and perfect for lunch or larger groups of friends, this restaurant offers a Western twist on Asian cuisine. Located in the vibrant Times Square region of the city, Green House offers an energetic and inviting atmosphere matched only by it’s amazing food and beverage options. We opted for some authentic meals but the choice was not an easy one as everything looked delicious. As the quality of ingredients is of the utmost importance at this venue, I think any decision would be a good one.
Tip: This restaurant is tucked away on one of the higher levels in the shopping mall so look up the mall’s directory for its exact location not to miss out.
The Garage Bar
We were lucky enough to have this trendy dinner option on our doorstep as it was located on one of the outdoor balcony areas of our hotel (Cordis Hotel).
Home to two converted vintage vans, this venue catered to our casual dining needs. The food van combined Western food truck favourites with traditional Asian flavours while the drink van had an extensive supply of local and international craft beers as well as wines and soft drinks. Nibbling on hand cut chips and burgers made to order, sipping cold beers and chilled wine under the stars, floors above this vibrant city was the perfect finish to a day spent exploring.
A Little More Upmarket
Located on the same street in SoHo as little Bao Meats is perfect for a night out with friends or a cosy dinner for two due to its share-style philosophy.
This appropriately named venue, knows exactly how to pick, prepare and cook a vast selection of meat cuts to intrigue and satisfy even the fussiest of diners, a chef!
We had the most amazing night here browsing their inventive menu, selecting a couple of plates at a time and being amazed by the presentation and flavours presented to us on the arrival of our dishes. Meals such as pate with brioche bread, chicken wings, and croquettes were delectably cooked and irresistibly presented. For a noteworthy meal, this venue is unquestionably one to put on the list.
As I sit here thumbing through photographs and reminiscing on some of our all-time favourite restaurants, I struggle not to jump online and book flights straight back to this incredible city!
I really hope this Hong Kong restaurants post can help anyone planning a trip to Hong Kong and give you some vital information.
