Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
You’ve tried Parisian-style steak frites, grilled Argentinian steaks and perhaps even the American T-bone steaks during a good ol’ backyard barbecue, but have you been to a Hong Kong-style steakhouse? Nicknamed ‘Soy Sauce Western Restaurants’ due to their soy sauce-based marinated steaks, Hong Kong steakhouses are best known for their sizzling hot plates and unbeatable prices.
If you associate steakhouses with glamorous interior design, superb service, sparkling water, red wine and expensive cuts of meat, you’re in for a bit of a culture shock. Looking more like local cha chaan tengs, you’ll be able to enjoy a tall glass of Hong Kong milk tea to go alongside your meal. While the quality of the meat at Chinese steakhouses is most likely going to be on the more cheap-and-cheerful of the spectrum, the affordable set meals and the bustling environments make it a one-of-a-kind experience.
