Like kids with new toys, nothing gets us more excited than the openings of new restaurants with cool, drool-inducing concepts.
This month, Hong Kong’s dining scene is blossoming with new eateries to treat your taste buds. So for those who are living in or planning to travel to the Fragrant Harbour, here are the newly-opened restaurants to visit for wow-worthy meals.
P.S. Italian food-loving foodies, you’re in for a real treat.
Inspired by the fond flavourful memories from his homeland, the newly-opened Estro with reinterpreted South Italian fare is how Naples-native Chef Antimo Maria Merone holds on to his childhood and the food that made it special. Expect nothing short of elegance from their opening tasting menu, consisting of wonderful elements like pigeon, red prawn and rosy seabass.
Looking for something fine yet friendly and approachable, then Ami Hong Kong should be your move. The restaurant with bistronomy concept offers French bistro-style food cooked with haute-cuisine techniques. Next to it is also Wood Ear, a recently-opened bar brimming with a collection of over 400 rare whiskies and concocted drinks to cap off the night on the right note after a meal at Ami.
Hong Kong’s food scene welcomes another restaurant with fine Southern Italian cuisine this month, simply because you can never have too many. Situated within Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay, Giacomo led by Chef Keith Yam serves up Southern Italian staples with modern takes. Must-try dishes include Blue Lobster Sardinian Gnocchi and Roasted Scallop with Pata Negra Ham. Eccellente.
Boy n Burger takes fast-food items like burger, hot dog and fried chicken to new heights. Ingredient traceability is priority here; vegetables are sourced from local farmers and all meat and seafood are traceable, providing discerning diners the information of where their food comes from. The most delightful part that gets us excited – and salivating – is their range of burgers that come layered with scrumptious and premium elements. Think Beef Burger with patties made from cereal-fed and 20 day salt moss-aged beef. Definitely can’t find this at Mickey D’s.
One more Italian restaurant to bless Hong Kong foodies who constantly crave for all things Italian. Take delight in innovative Italian cuisine at Radical Chic situated on 101 floor of the International Commerce Centre (ICC). The menu and setting here is really just as vibrant as the view from the city’s highest building like ICC.
