Recommended Asia Miles Partner Restaurants
This popular dim sum restaurant has branches in Central, Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok. Yum Cha’s best known for its quirky anthropomorphic buns, but also holds its own when it comes to more conventional dishes. In the spirit of family yum cha gatherings, we recommend inviting a couple of team players to try out the well-priced set menus to help you rake in those miles while you feast.
Whether you want to spice things up with a long-term partner or connect with a new flame, you can’t really go wrong with a tapas bar for a fun, casual date. Check out OM Tapas in Tsim Sha Tsui for a contemporary take on Andalusian cuisine, and let the conversation flow over small plates and sangria. If you fancy a little theatre with your food, order the flaming chorizo, which is roasted at the table.
Have a birthday or celebration coming up at the office? Earn miles and brownie points by picking up a box of delicious confections for your co-workers from any of Sift’s six locations. Not only will you get to snack on their famed red velvet cupcakes, but the purchase will also push you over the HKD1,500 target for Level 1 and get you your first bonus. Sweet.
While this relaxed burger joint is a popular choice for quick work lunches, we’ve got our eye on their weekend brunches, where you can savour the burgers and famous skillet cookies with free-flow drinks. And for all those jet-setters out there, Beef & Liberty have a branch at the airport, so you can fill up on burgers, beers, and even more air miles.
Tucked away in a Hung Hom hotel, this unassuming Japanese eatery draws consistent crowds for its affordable, high quality food. The extensive menu features jet-fresh sushi and sashimi, teppanyaki, noodles, and rice – much of which you can sample as part of the reasonably priced five-course lunch set.
Need an impressive venue for an extremely special occasion? Look no further than Bibo, the Sheung Wan eatery where street art meets fine French cuisine. Every inch of this two-storey space is covered in works from some of the art world’s best-known enfants terribles such as Basquiat, Banksy and Damien Hirst. In addition to the underground artwork, Bibo has garnered international recognition for its boundary pushing French cuisine and unique wine bar, which boasts one of the most comprehensive selections of wines by the glass. Needless to say, you’ll be levelling up after this meal.
Crowds have been flocking to Megan’s Kitchen since the mid-2000s for its fun, contemporary take on classic Cantonese hotpot. This Wan Chai favourite is known for being inventive with its flavours and presentations, with signatures being the ‘cappuccino’ Tom Yum Goong soup base, rainbow cuttlefish balls, and black truffle dumplings, all of which are made in house. Like all hotpot meals, Megan’s is best enjoyed in a large group.
Go out with a bang at Cabana, where you and your friends can spend the better part of a day luxuriating in Japanese onsen tubs or sprawled on sun loungers on a balcony over Repulse Bay Beach. Note that the HKD320 admission fee isn’t eligible for mileage credit, but Cabana's various bottles of bubbly certainly are. Mission accomplished!
