Japan’s first Michelin one-starred ramen eatery has opened in Causeway Bay! Featuring high-quality ramen with zero MSG, Tsuta’s Tokyo flagship is also known for breaking records when queue-times there reached the five-hour mark. Tsuta’s famed dashi (soup stock) – made with whole chickens, fresh clams and dried fish – is simmered for 9 hours before being blended with a custom-created soy base. The signature Shoyu Soba (soy sauce ramen, HK$98) is topped with specially-made soy sauce, truffle sauce and black truffle oil; while the popular Shio Soba (salt ramen, HK$98) is topped with truffle oil and a sauce made with Okinawa sea salt and Mongolian rock salt. Do note: Given its firm focus on fresh ingredients, handmade noodles and freshly-made food, Tsuta Hong Kong will follow Japan’s limited supply rule by serving only 400 bowls per day on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The latest addition to Kennedy Town’s growing epicurean scene is a convivial gastropub modelled on the cosy, charming and unpretentious vibe of classic New York City neighbourhood bars. With the founders of Hong Kong’s Young Master Brewery amongst the team behind Alvy’s, expect nothing less than a carefully-curated selection of Young Master’s fresh local beers, alongside other rare imported craft beers. Diners can also enjoy all-natural wines and an extensive collection of American only craft whiskeys, with a complementary cocktail list emphasising whiskey-based concoctions. Food-wise, Alvy’s offerings are inspired by New York City signatures and Hong Kong flavours, centred on its own signature style of sourdough-based pizza. Highlights include the “Ma-La-Di-Da” pizza (classic salami with a fiery Sichuan spin), “Latkes” (classic potato pancakes paired with Char Siu) and other creative bites.

LILYA Moroccan Lounge and Bar

Image title

Experience a stunning slice of Morocco’s vibrant heritage at the newly-opened LILYA Moroccan Lounge and Bar. Meticulously designed to recreate an authentic Moroccan experience, LILYA’s ornate interiors are a visual feast, starting from the entrance wall of more than 400 traditional Babouche slippers sourced from a Souk (i.e. a market or bazaar) in Marrakesh and brass door hand-made by Moroccan craftsmen. Inside, expect opulent and tactile accents like silk tassels, mosaic tiles, Moroccan lamps and an array of lush couches, pillows and poufs set under the exquisitely hand-carved ceiling. The menu is equally exotic – Moroccan-inspired sharing plates and cocktails which feature Moroccan ingredients (served in engraved glasses and traditional teapots).
