Set in a sprawling ground-floor shopfront next to Enoteca and conveniently nestled between Quarry Bay’s glistening glass-encased office towers, this branch of Korean fusion joint Bib N Hops has become a favourite for power lunches and happy hours alike. Korean tacos, fried chicken baos and bibimbap burgers are the name of the game here. If you’re coming for lunch, eat early and vacate your table by 12.30pm to score a 20 percent discount. And note the (very happy) 3pm-9pm happy hours, when a pint of Brooklyn IPA, a house red or white or Johnnie Walker Black sets you back only $58.
Quarry Bay and Tai Koo don't get the love they deserve when it comes to eating and drinking. They may not be at the top of everyone's list, but these districts in the east end of Hong Kong Island have some of Hong Kong's best restaurants, not to mention tremendous mom-and-pop shops as well as some of the best cafés and coffee shops and one of the best rooftop bars in the city. Whether you're fuelling up before a hike or looking for a fun night out far from the madding crowd, check out these great restaurants, bars and cafés in Quarry Bay and Tai Koo.
RECOMMENDED: Get off the beaten path and visit some other equally underrated neighbourhoods. Start with up-and-coming Tsuen Wan in the New Territories.
