Hong Kong’s huge choice of bars and restaurants can be overwhelming. Here, we asked the team from Dining Concepts for a few top picks from their wide range of venues.
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, an indulgent dessert bar, and optional free-flow. Enjoy with a side serve of a spectacular view of the city from Ocean Terminal.

This romantic restaurant and lounge bar has been buzzing from the day it opened its doors, and is perfect for lunch, leisurely dinners, cocktails or a relaxing drink. It boasts sweeping views of Victoria Harbour, and a stunning interior with an elegant French feel with floral accents, all with trademark detail associated with the work of one of the region’s leading designers, Ashley Sutton (who we interviewed for our June/July 2018 issue of Expat Living!).

Located in the heart of Hong Kong’s dining scene, Mama San offers an exotic array of South Asian flavours. The menu is masterminded by renowned “street food chef” Will Meyrick, whose signature dishes include: oysters with red nahm jihm, fresh coriander and deep-fried shallots; slow braised short rib beef with Indonesian rending spices; and Thai-style Peking duck red curry.
1/F, 46 Wyndham Street, Central
With interiors by Tom Dixon, a contemporary menu by Michelin-trained chef Michael Boyle, and – as the name suggests – views to die for, what’s not to love? This venue is perfectly situated on the 31st floor of V Point in Causeway and offers a stylish option for business lunches, date nights or those days when you just want to soak in the beauty of Victoria Harbour.

If you get a hankering for a traditional English pub experience, head to Gordon Ramsay’s London House. This pub-style bar and restaurant offers all-day dining, a bar and grill, live entertainment and all the major sport from around the world on big screens. The menu is packed with quintessential pub favourites such as fish and chips, bangers and mash, and shepherd’s pie.
