Five Favourite Restaurants with Nathan Green, the new head chef at Spanish tapas joint, 22 Ships.
Celebrity chef Jason Atherton has staked a heavy claim to Hong Kong's high-end dining scene in recent years, with such well-received restaurants as Aberdeen Street Social (75%) and Ham & Sherry (70%) winning innumerable critical accolades and awards.
Five Favourite, featuring chef Peggy Chan of veggie favourites Grassroots Pantry and Prune Organic Deli.
In a city where meat and rice are all but staples of a regular diet, someone like chef Peggy Chan is a godsend. Her two restaurants, Grassroots Pantry (75%) and Prune Organic Deli (77%) might be strictly vegetarian, but they rarely sacrifice on flavours.
Five favourite, with chef Erik Idos of Chino, the hot new Japanese-Mexican restaurant in K-Town
Erik Idos doesn't take things lying down. Trained in San Francisco, he made his way to Hong Kong in 2005 as a line cook at Nobu (67%) and within five years, had moved to the top of the heap as executive chef. But that wasn't enough: last year, Idos quit his lucrative job to cash in on his dream: opening his own restaurant based on all he'd learned.
Five Favourite, with Basil Yu of Sheung Wan's 'third culture' gastropub, Crafty Cow.
Crafty Cow (73%) is new. Very new - but that hasn't stopped the tucked-away Sheung Wan spot from bringing in the crowds through its exciting 'third culture' offerings. Leading its open-plan kitchen is chef/owner Basil Yu, a man who made his bones at some of the city's finest dining spots.
Five Favourite Restaurants, featuring chef Neil Tomes of Wan Chai burger favourite, Beef & Liberty.
Beef & Liberty (71%) head chef Neil Tomes has had a fascinating career: working at such famed international names as The Fat Duck and M at the Fringe; opening restaurants in Shanghai and the British Virgin Islands; launching the city's gastropub obsession with Alfie's (73%).
