Top Picks… Hong Kong Restaurant Week
Foodies, on your marks, get set, go! Appetite-whetting, twice-yearly Hong Kong Restaurant Week is hitting town (17-26 Feb). With more than 100 of the city’s best restos taking part, LUXE offers a lowdown of the dining destinations not to be missed...
It’s a great opportunity to experience fine-dining at affordable prices, with minimum 3-course lunches from $118 and 3-course dinners from $298! Fancy pushing the boat out? A second pampering prix-fixe tier includes 3-course lunches from $198 and dinners from $398.
New names for Spring 2017 include Central trio Buenos Aires Polo Club (inspired by the sport of kings and Argentina’s dynamic, steak-grilling culture), Mercato (Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s triple-Mich-starred Italian share-plater) and TokyoLima (a seductive affair catering to all your Nikkei cravings).
To sample Asian delights check out recently launched fine diner The Chin’s in Central, which teams elegant turquoise, gold and marble decor with Ringo Chow’s classic-meets-contempo, province-hopping Sino bites. For trad, chef-crafted Edomae sushi, skip to Sushi Tokami in Tsim Sha Tsui, spawned by the Mich-rated Ginza original. You’ll also be wowed by authentic Indonesian dishes courtesy of Kaum, inside style set haunt Potato Head in happening Sai Ying Pun.
If Euro eats are more your food-mood, then wrap your palate around LKF Tower’s 50s-bent Italian-New Yorker Carbone, or Wan Chai’s fresh and familial Italian Pirata. Like the event’s Facebook page for priority booking (9-13 Feb); official public booking kicks off from 13 Feb for 10 belt-busting days. Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we dine!
