The best new restaurant openings in Hong Kong
It’s a good month for burger fans. Aside from the Five Guys debut above, another US-born fastfood favourite, Shake Shack, is expanding with its second store in the 852. The new location is at Pacific Place, close to the AMC Cinema. Aside from serving up Shackburgers, crinkle-cut fries and hand-spun shakes, the store will also have items that are exclusive to the PP location. Opens mid-Nov.
This popular restaurant from Tokyo is known for serving high-quality sushi at wallet-friendly prices. The menu at the Hong Kong branch covers more than 80 items, from nigiri and maki rolls to soups and salads. Everything is made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, many of which are sourced from the Japanese capital’s Toyosu Market every day.
After debuting its first Hong Kong location in Fashion Walk earlier this year, Singapore’s famed Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice expands with a new spot at Elements. Like the Causeway Bay location, the new outlet also offers dishes by other food stalls from the Lion City, including The 50s, Lao Jie Fang and A Noodle Story. Aside from the signature chicken rice, the restaurant will serve new dishes including bak kut teh with wagyu shank and tripe, prawn toast with truffle sauce, and sweets such as kaya cake and deep-fried durian dumplings.
Named after Jean Cocteau’s novel Les Enfants Terribles, Terrible Baby is the latest bar at the recently rebranded Eaton Hong Kong. The venue shakes up a cool selection of sustainable cocktails and also offers an impressive collection of rosés and gins. It’s also linked to an outdoor terrace and music room, where you can enjoy live performances and also record and mix your own tracks.
