Where To Eat in Hong Kong China

My first, of which will be many future visits to Hong Kong was March of 2014.  Kate, a friend from San Francisco was going for work and extended an invite. For me, having a great friend to visit and a place to stay makes it hard to say no to a fabulous destination. Within a week my ticket was booked and we started planning away.  I was fortunate during my stay to have such an experienced hostess.  She’d been more than a handful of times so gave me the curated local’s guide to the city. That’s probably why I fell in love immediately. Kudos to my local hostess Kate for the amazing curated visit!!

As you know by now, I’m a total Foodie and Hong Kong has a fabulous dining scene. It felt a lot like New York City. Awesome restaurants with varying cuisines as well as a lively scene.  Between the culinary scene and the Hong Kong Nightlife jackpot, I was in heaven!! 

Chom Chom This was another neighborhood gem I fell in love with. It’s a Vietnamese Bia Hoi Bar & Eatery with delicious authentic dishes. If you can, sit at the bar so you can watch the chefs prepare the food.  Everything was delicious. My favorite’s included: Pho Roll, Kaffir Lime Chicken Cabbage Salad, & the Tofu Rice Paper Roll.  58 Peel Street. Soho, Hong Kong.

Yardbird (one of Asia’s Top 50 Restaurants) – After loving Ronin I was curious to try their sister restaurant Yardbird. Yardbird was recently given one of Asia’s Top 50 Restaurant Awards.   I popped in the afternoon of dinner to see this highly reviewed spot and met the team. What great guys. I was greeted by Jeffrey, another Chicago native who advised I come early as they only seat full parties and Thursdays are quite busy. I took his advice and arrived by 6:30pm. I had a few cocktails at the bar and by 7:30pm we were seated. What a fabulous bar for a drink, whether staying to dine or not I’d return here many times just to enjoy their delicious cocktails and lively bar and dining scene.  33-35 Bridges StreetHong KongChina (Sheung Wan).

Ronin  This was a late night visit and even at 11pm it was pretty crowded. The Servers & Bar Tenders were very nice and informative and made killer drinks. I also had a light appetizer (shown below) which was tasty  I will be returning here next time for a full dinner experience.  This is the “new” restaurant in the well known Yardbird restaurant group, I recommend visiting both Ronin & Yardbird8 on Wo LaneHong KongChina
