Famous Restaurants & Bars in Hong Kong – Dining Delights!

If you are a certified food connoisseur or even just love introducing your taste buds to exotic, wild and seductively delicious flavours and aromas, then Hong Kong is the place to plan your next foodie adventures to. Restaurants in Wan Chai are among the best dining venues to try local specials be it succulent roasted BBQ pork to gourmet cuisine of a Michelin starred restaurant. Staying at centrally located accommodation options such as Cosmopolitan Hotel Hong Kong makes an ideal choice since you can enjoy easy access to many of these establishments including stylish bars where you can sip cool cocktails and dance the night away.

So let’s start with some Wan Chai dining establishments shall we. If you love seafood and crab in particular then Hee Kee Fried Crab Expert is the place to go and not just because it has the word “crab expert” on its title! Amidst a traditional setting you can enjoy some amazing chilli crab (using typhoon shelter crab to be specific) along with other dishes featuring kau fish and mantis prawn. No foodie excursion is complete without trying a “hot pot” meal which is similar to the concept of fondue. Megan’s Kitchen in Wan Chai is a great place to enjoy this kind of meal where you can dip everything from rainbow cuttlefish balls to beef balls with cheese into a variety of broths that bring out the flavours.

For some of the hottest nightlife in town drop by The Habitat Lounge in Wan Chai which is located on the QRE Plaza Building’s 29th floor. Apart from great views, this cool lounge and bar also has DJs ensuring a lively soundtrack to your partying. If you prefer to belt out some classics or favourite hit songs, then visit the Penthouse Sky Lounge which is a popular karaoke bar that looks out across to the harbour.

Those venues are in Wan Chai alone and Hong Kong has much to offer in all its other charming neighbourhoods too. One of Hong Kong’s most famous French restaurants, On Lot 10 is a great place to satiate your appetite for fine cuisine, while the always busy The Chairman (book ahead if you are going!) is popular for its tasting menus not forgetting its steamed flower crab made to perfection with Shaoxing wine. You can sample British classics at The Pawn, Tuscany seafood soup at Gold and Cantonese dim sum at Fook Lam Moon, all of which have much more to offer on their menus as well. After having your fill consider heading on over to SEVVA Taste Bar where you can sip your choice of beverage and enjoy breathtaking harbour side vistas from up high, including the stunning ‘Symphony of Lights’ show.
