Hungry Pal is the latest fuss-free drinking den joining the fold of elevated dive bars in the city. The gastrobar promises modern takes on pub classics. Inspired by bars that your high-end restaurant bartenders actually drink and hang out at, this new bar is the kind of place where you go to get quality drinks after a stressful day at work. The venue is open daily from lunch until 10pm (until restrictions lift). Ashok, who is in charge of the kitchen, is preparing dishes like chicken and mushroom pie ($88), cajun fried chicken ($148 for a half; $280 for a whole), caprese salad ($168), and grilled salmon served with peppered couscous, shaved radish, and beetroot vinaigrette ($178). The bar, headed by Bikal, will be serving twists to classic cocktails (starts at $68) like Martinez and Last Word, and highballs, with an addition of their signature tea gimlet called Oolong Sour made with oolong milk tea-infused gin. Other drinks on the menu will include beers on tap like Stella Artois and Goose Island IPA, and a wine list focused on Old World wines.
Spring is finally here, and that means Hong Kong weather is getting misty and damp, so best to welcome the season with a refreshing drink to brighten up your mood. With ongoing social distancing regulations now allowing for some night time activities, our city's restaurants and bars with catering permits can now indulge us with some after-work drinks. So, whether you're celebrating with your special lady for Women's Month or finally getting the time to meet up with a couple of your friends, there's a boozy drink waiting for you in the city.
