MY 10 FAVOURITE RESTAURANTS IN HONG KONG

1. MRS POUND

Cuisine: Asian/Western Fusion

Where: Sheung Wan

My faves: Seared Tuna Salad (lunch). For dinner: Avocado Fries, Salted-Egg-Yolk Squid, Hainan Chicken Rice.

Note: The restaurant is disguised as a stamp shop and you need to push the stamp closest to the entrance to open the door in the evening. Also, I worked here part time for a few months at the beginning of this year, which I loved, so I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for it. They do some really great, unique cocktails so if you don’t fancy food, pop by for a drink!

2. DAIKIYA

Cuisine: Japanese Buffet

Where: Tsim Sha Tsui

My faves: Sweet shrimp sashimi and spicy clams.

3. CAMPERS

Cuisine: Japanese (curries and noodles)

Where: Tin Hau

My faves: Blanched Veg Curry, Butter Chicken Mixed Veg Curry, Beef and Kimchi Spicy Salad Udon. TREAT YO SELF with a Salt Boiled Egg, too (ramen egg).

4. BEEF AND LIBERTY

Cuisine: Burgers

Where: Wan Chai

My faves: Bacon Cheeseburger, Chili Cheese Fries, Chocolate Milkshake.

Note: Buy one get one free burgers every Monday!

5. ORANGE ELEPHANT

Cuisine: Thai

Where: Kowloon City

My faves: Thai Shrimp Sashimi, Thai Sour and Spicy Chicken Feet Salad, Steamed Mullet with Thai Sour and Spicy Sauce on Stove Tray.

Note: On each day of the week, there is a different dish for $1!

6. THAI CHEF THAIS RESTAURANT

Cusine: Thai

Where: Mong Kok

My faves: Chicken Skewers and Red Seafood Curry.

Note: Best chicken skewers in Hong Kong and if you don’t fancy eating in, you can some grab a couple to go!

7. HOF AND SOJU

Cuisine: Korean

Where: Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui (the MK branch is bigger)

My faves: Half and Half Korean Fried Chicken (Original and Yang-neom)

Note: Unlimited sides of radish and sliced cabbage

8. SHUGETSU

Cuisine: Japanese Ramen

My faves: Grilled Kurobuta Pork Belly Ramen

Note: They use a light fish broth instead of the usual pork broth which I prefer

9. CO THAHN

Cuisine: Vietnamese

My faves: Bun Mam (Vermicelli in a sweet and savoury fermented fish and shrimp paste broth) and Cha Gio (pork spring rolls)

10. TAN TSAI YUNNAN NOODLE

Cuisine: Chinese noodles

Where: All over Hong Kong

My faves: Noodles in a clear soup with two portions of pork and one portion of lettuce and I like to add my own chili oil. Add a side of the Black Fungus in Special Chili Sauce. Grab a cold Ovaltine to cool you down from the spice!

Note: Don’t go to the ‘SamGor’ version because it’s not as good.

I hope this has helped you out if you’ve been looking for somewhere new to try!
