Best restaurants to eat at alone
Located in the busy Mong Kok district, Akune Wagyu Tachikui Yakinikumise is the first standing restaurant that serves Japanese-style BBQ in Hong Kong. Offering different cuts of A4 and A5 Wagyu beef from Kagoshima, all the beef cuts are charged per piece with the cheapest costing only $12. There are also a variety of sauces, salts, and spices available for you to match your meat with. An unmissable place for all carnivores indeed.
Self-indulgence is the name of the game at the Butchers Club. With beer, bourbon, and juicy burgers available for consumption, their patties are made with dry-aged beef that’s sustainably-sourced from New South Wales. If you’re looking to cut meat from your diet, the Beyond Burger should be your new go-to.
Swap your office cubicle for a dinner cubicle. Ichiran’s individual wooden booths offer privacy at its finest, allowing you to slurp your ramen in peace. There’s everything you need, from a self-serve matcha dispenser to a magic call button for placing your orders. All you have to do is fill out your order sheet, hand it to a faceless-waiter behind the bamboo curtain, and wait for your ramen to appear. A recluse’s dream.
Maks Noodles is one of the best places to go for fuss-free, delicious Cantonese comfort fare. Try the classic wonton shrimp noodles in soup, which at $43 is one of the best meal deals you can get in Hong Kong. Located on Wellington Street, Maks Noodles is the kind of no-frills dining experience that you can easily enjoy, even without a dining companion.
Despite Sushi Tachi's small space, its wooden bar tables, cherry blossom decoration, and soft lighting give the restaurant a decent Japanese flair. All of its seafood offerings are selected directly from Japan’s Tsukiji Market every day, and the sushi is made exclusively using rice from Fukui Prefecture. Signatures include the mini urchin bowl rice, grilled olive flounder sushi, and jumbo pink prawn sushi. The restaurant also updates its menu every month, featuring seasonal and rare fish species.
