Fresh Food, featuring new street-food spots, a retro-styled Thai joint, and a couple bar/restaurants.
It’s a sad time for Hong Kong, as police today swooped in our Occupy protestors and removed all barriers. Hong Kong’s political situation is currently up in the air, and while we’d like to offer radio silence in support, our fellow dining compatriots keep chugging along. With that, here’s an opening-heavy Fresh Food this week.
First up, looks like we’ve hit a new chicken trend: a while back we told you about Jack’s Fried Chicken in K-Town. This week, a new Peruvian rotisserie chicken shop, Healthy Chicken, will open on Wellington Street later this month. As its name suggests, it’ll be serving natural birds with South American sauces and sides.
In other simple offerings, a new Italian street food spot Mangiare has opened out on Cadogan Street in Kennedy Town. By ‘street food’, expect such bread-cheese offerings as pizzas, calzones etc., although we’re hoping for more.
In openings we missed: up in north Sheung Wan, a cool little retro-Thai restaurant called Oldish (above) has recently opened its doors on Tung Street; it’s a small little place that’s serving contemporary-styled classic dishes from the country. Also in the neighbourhood, Dandan Soulfood from Sichuan, a noodles-only fast food place serving the region’s spicy concoctions.
The Prive Group has recently expanded into Knutsford Terrace, with Assembly, a new gastrobar that offers plenty of cocktails alongside a menu of small plates, such as ribs and pork belly. And if you find yourself out at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, a new alfresco bar/restaurant The Old Hangar has recently opened its doors – it comes to us from an auditor-turned-chef, which isn’t too exciting, but the menu is filled with classic comfort dishes.
Finally, Sohofama has now quietly opened its doors out in PMQ: we dropped in for a quick look last week, and it’s designed in a classic G.O.D. style, an interesting addition to the complex.
