This stylish 38-seater on Hollywood Road seeks to spin traditional Taiwanese cuisine in a more contemporary and sophisticated direction, starring the restaurant's signature crispy chicken. A Taiwanese night-market staple, these deep-fried chicken tidbits marinated in soy sauce and five-spice powder, paired with truffle mayo and yuzu mayo, are what McNuggets can only dream of becoming. Round out your feast with a cocktail by award-winning Taiwanese mixologist, Shin Chiu. Our personal favourite is the drunken bubble tea, made with earl grey tea infused with vodka, Baileys, tapioca, and burnt cinnamon.
It's no secret that Hongkongers love Taiwan. Graduation trip? Go to Taiwan. Weekend getaway? Go to Taiwan. And most importantly, one of the things we love most about this place is its incredible local cuisine (and all the amazing bubble tea shops it has brought us). Yet, with that being said, authentic Taiwanese food is surprisingly the unicorn of the HK foodie scene – it’s rumoured to exist, but difficult to substantiate. So, we did the homework for you and gathered some of our favourite Taiwanese restaurants in Hong Kong that most certainly deserve your attention.
