Round-Up, featuring 6 restaurants that are famed for late-night eats, writes Richard Ames.
Snacking after midnight isn’t hard in Hong Kong, with the endless number of McDonald’s and Tsui Wah’s. But sometimes that drunken urge craves something more. Here, we stray away from the standard overpriced breakfasts (ahem, Flying Pan (59%)) and terrible pizzas (looking at you, Paisanos (68%)), for a focus on finer late-night fare. All of it's Asian – because really, after a certain hour is when their true flavours come out.
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.
