Designed with comfort and socialising in mind, Asaya Kitchen’s dining area exudes hominess with its open kitchen, light color scheme and wood furnishings. Equipped with an infinity pool and an al fresco poolside bar, not only does the restaurant offer exquisite food and a perfect site for bonding, it also provides a stellar view of Hong Kong’s famous harbour and glittering skyline. Spearheaded by Executive Chef Renaud Marin and using only seasonal ingredients sourced from local farmers, fisheries and artisans, Asaya Kitchen serves health-conscious, plant-based dishes that derive strong influences from infamously nutritious Mediterranean and Japanese diets. Those who want something more casual can visit during their lunch service for a more laidback feast on organic foods. But if you’re up for something fancier, feel free to come by during dinner to witness the kitchen’s more delicate and artistic side.
When it comes to food, there are few places that can parallel Hong Kong’s incredibly diverse, colourful gastronomic scene. With cuisines from all around the world and no shortage of globally-renowned chefs fighting for a spot to open shop, it should come as no surprise that so many big names have their eyes set on the Pearl of the Orient. Finding new places to eat? Well, look no further because we’ve compiled all the new must-tries debuting this November! By Andrea Hui
