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.
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.
Five Favourite Restaurants with Maureen Loh, chef/owner at Maureen in Wan Chai.
A shining example to all independent chefs in Hong Kong, for over two decades now, Maureen Loh has run successful, privately-owned restaurants around town. First with two traditional Chinese spots in Central, Soup Cafe and Chinese Spoon, and now Maureen (79%), her namesake restaurant near the Blue House in Wan Chai.
Five Favourite Restaurants with Vinny Lauria, executive chef at Posto Pubblico, Linguini Fini and Stone Nullah Tavern.
As the IHM Group's executive chef, Vinny Lauria's New York-styled approach to restaurants all but ushered in a renaissance in Hong Kong's dining scene, one that nearly every major new eatery has liberally borrowed from.
Lunch of the Week, featuring a five-course Sichuan daytime meal for $100. This week: Da Ping Huo.
Considering our close proximity to its province and our city’s general love for all things spicy, it’s no real surprise that Hong Kong is packed to the rafters with Sichuan restaurants. Some like San Xi Lou (80%), aim strictly for authenticity. Others such as Red Pepper (74%), appeal mostly to tourists.
