What's on the menu?


One way of getting to know Hong Kong’s history and culture is by eating your way around this metropolis. We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite spots to grab a bite, from eastern classics, to western imports.


Come for RISE. Stay for Hong Kong.

Ho Lee Fook

Like many of Hong Kong’s best restaurants, Ho Lee Fook in Central is tricky to find. The name is a Cantonese translation meaning “good fortune for your mouth”, but also reads phonetically like a reaction to the food. The restaurant has a clubby atmosphere, so start the night here before hitting up the rows of trendy bars on the adjacent Hollywood Road, but don’t leave without trying the signature dish, roast Wagyu short ribs with a soy glaze.

The Continental

There are no shortages of great views in Hong Kong but the ones from the terrace of The Continental are something special. Styled after the grand cafes of Europe and perched above Admiralty’s high-end shopping district, The Continental is a memorable stop for a drink and a snack as you take in the city. When it comes to the menu, you really can’t go wrong, although if seafood is your thing, that’s a good place to start.

Winstons Coffee

Whether you prefer to beat jet lag with caffeine or cocktails, this new corner spot on Queens Road West has your fix. After dark, a post-work crowd spills onto the sidewalk to sip espresso martinis. The next morning, they’re back outside the takeaway window for flat whites and bacon baps.

Tim Ho Wan

Renowned as the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant, Tim Ho Wan is famous for its baked BBQ pork buns. This Hong Kong dim sum spot’s most famous dish costs under $3 and will leave you craving until you return. Note that per the 2018 Michelin Guide, the only Tim Ho Wan location that received a Michelin star was the Sham Shui Po branch.

Din Tai Fung

Arguably the best Xiao Long Bao in Hong Kong, this chain originated in Taiwan, and has now spread across Asia and the world. You might have to wait for a table but you’ll also get a glimpse of the chefs through the window, making dumplings at lighting speed.
