Hong Kong has never really had a top quality Mexican restaurant. 11 Westside is the best stab at it yet. Although it’s hardly ‘authentic’, the venue is gorgeous – exposed concrete walls and leather banquettes that contrast nicely with chic chandeliers and a hip-hop soundtrack – and the food excellent, though some will balk at Mexican cuisine costing this much. Be sure to order the Pollo Asado – some of the best tacos we’ve ever had.
Drum roll please! It’s that time where we reflect – while rubbing our bellies and promising ourselves that next week will be the one where we go on a diet and get some exercise – on the last 12 months in eating. And this year, there’s been a frankly stupid amount of brilliant new restaurants. Which has made whittling the shortlist down to a top 10 one helluva challenge. But we’ve done it. So here you go. The very best new Hong Kong restaurants of 2017.
