First opened in Hong Kong in 1928, Jimmy’s Kitchen is back with a bang in Central, reopening in Pedder Building right next to its original restaurant space.

The legendary 96-year-old restaurant, which originated in Shanghai, closed its doors in Central in May 2020, and regulars have been hankering for its return ever since.

A Hong Kong institution, Jimmy’s Kitchen is beloved for serving up a uniquely Hong Kong-style Western menu, featuring iconic dishes such as beetroot and vegetable borscht (HKD108), Jimmy’s beef stroganoff (HKD258), chicken supreme Kiev (HKD238), and baked Alaska (HKD228) – a time capsule back to the eatery’s heyday in the 1960s and 70s.

We can’t wait to check out Jimmy’s Kitchen 2.0, and we’ll be first in the queue when they revive their classic Sunday roast.

Note that during this soft-opening period, the restaurant is only open for dinner from 6PM.
