Hong Kong’s most photogenic pink restaurants
Madame Fu is not simply a restaurant but an experience as well, complete with a compelling backstory that centres on its namesake heroine. Playing up to the colonial stylings of the former Central Police Station compound, the venue channels an east-meets-west ethos that pays tribute to the fictional Madame Fu – a socialite who opened a grand salon in Shanghai in the 1930s after living in Paris. At a sprawling 8,000sq ft, the space encompasses the main dining room (the Grand Café), bar area, whisky lounge, private rooms, two open-air verandahs and a Pink Room, which is decked out in millennial pink sofas and lounge chairs. There are only four tables available, so make sure to book ahead if you want to enjoy modern Cantonese-focused Chinese fare and afternoon tea sets in this pinked out space.
From the walls and velvet-lined chairs down to the utensils. It’s a heaven for fans of the colour pink, Popular Seoul-based sweets spot Le Bread Lab is adorably pretty in pink. Once you’re done feeding your camera, have a go at their cutesy cakes and desserts, including the rainbow strawberry cake, the strawberry latte and the signature strawberry omelette – a small folded cake topped with cream, strawberry and icing sugar.
Renowned for its photogenic, 3D decorative cakes, popular bakery Vive Cake Boutique’s outpost at H Queen’s is just as Instagrammable. Minimalist and feminine with plenty of pastel pink thrown around, Vive has an incredible cake selection, including the signature Uni-cone (an inverted ice cream cone sits atop a rainbow layer cake), Rose Penelope (with a giant diamond decorative piece as a cake topper) and Treasure Hunt (covered in chocolate and dusted with gold).
It’s not technically a restaurant, but this shipping container-inspired bubble tea joint with its eye-catching, neon pink facade definitely counts for something. It certainly has been making the rounds on local social media feeds. Like most other bubble tea specialists in Hong Kong, this stall is tiny, but hoards of Hongkongers nevertheless flock to Cup Of for a, er, cup of peach fruit tea. Patrons can choose how big a cup they want – the largest can go up to one litre to be shared between two.
Hailing all the way from Singapore, the beloved hotpot chain Beauty in the Pot quickly became a smashing success overnight when it opened its doors in Hong Kong last year. The restaurant, delightfully decked out in shades of pastel pink, elegantly combines flavours and ingredients from various parts of East Asia, creating a harmonious and ingenious blend of cultures that captures the essence of communal dining manifested through the hotpot experience. So, if you’re ever torn between satiating your craving for hotpot and fulfilling your inner princess’ pretty pink fantasies, now you have just the place to run to for both a delicious meal and snapping that Insta-worthy money shot.
