Yum Cha creates many little dim sum artworks every day. Its pork buns resemble little cartoon piggies that’re too cute to eat for some but irresistible to others. It’s also famous for its adorable-but-gross custard buns that vomit custard when squeezed.

The clue is in the title with this one, as InstaCrepes openly encourages obsessive internet smartphone photography at the table. The most photo-worthy crepe has got to be the Everything Gallette with emmental cheese, bacon, beef, caramelised onions, mushrooms, a fried egg and salad – try fitting all that in your frame!

US striploin at A-side B-side

icon-location-pin Sheung Wan

A-side B-side is all about seasonality, with a farm to table policy for veg, most of which comes from the New Territories. It pairs its vegetables with high-quality imported meat, offering simple dishes with modern touches. The quality shines through on the plate, especially the US striploin – this intricate modern dish will keep you snap-happy.
