Must-do eats & drinks in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a foodie paradise – a city where noodle stands have been awarded Michelin stars. Once you’re settled, it’s time to explore some of the city’s impressive wine and dine experiences. Here are five of our favourite restaurants and bars in Hong Kong to add to your must-visit list.

Bread Street Kitchen & Bar

Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen and Bar is newly opened on The Peak. For homesick Brits, this is the place to get your fix of proper beef wellington or fish and chips, or toast the success of your move with a few cocktails. It’s even open for breakfast, which means you can hike up from Conduit Road and reward yourself with a full English breakfast or smashed avocado and eggs. We promise it’s worth it!

Dear Lilly

Dear Lilly is an Ashley Sutton experience, and he always delivers a wow factor. It’s a double dose of wow at Dear Lilly, because once you’ve walked into the space and become lost in this ethereal venue, you look out the back window to the most spectacular view of the harbour. This is a super-romantic place for dinner and drinks, but it also does a gorgeous high tea in the afternoons. A great place to take visitors, day or night.

Dragon Fly

This bohemian-style cocktail lounge is tucked away in Tai Kwun, an arts and heritage centre on Hollywood Road. Tai Kwun is just off the midlevels escalator and is a great place to explore – you’ll find art galleries, book stores, preserved slices of Hong Kong history, plus a worthy after-dark scene at Dragon Fly. This bar is so Instagrammable it hurts – simply beautiful, and serving creative cocktails and small bites.

Le Pain Quotidien

If you’re yearning for some real bread and a big bowl of something green and healthy, do yourself a favour and visit Le Pain Quotidien for lunch. You won’t be disappointed. From humble beginnings as a bakery in Europe, it’s now a business found all over the world. Here in Hong Kong, the focus is on healthy food and a sustainable approach. (You won’t find plastic cutlery here.)

Al Molo

Brunching is de rigueur while living in Hong Kong! Helmed by New York Michelin-starred chef Michael White, Al Molo Ristorante Italiano is easily among the best Italian food you’ll find in the Fragrant Harbour. The weekend brunch has an antipasti semi-buffet, followed by a made-to-order main course and then an indulgent dessert bar. Free-flow is optional. Enjoy with a side serve of a spectacular view of the city from Ocean Terminal.
