The Butcher's Club Burgers

Order from Deliveroo

Dry-aged beef burgers in a street stall setting. We love their “Burger Takeovers” that feature chefs from different restaurants around the city transforming their cuisine into burger-form.

2 Landale Street, 2552 8281

Kung Chiu Noodle

The bright pink signage will draw you in, but you’ll stay for the generous portions of roast pork with scrambled eggs for less than $40.

1 Gresson Street, 2180 8615


Order from Deliveroo

Find the perfect balance of fresh nourishing ingredients and deliciously filling flavours with this urban Hawaiian poké shack.

4 Swatow Street, 3706 5641

Bread & Beast

Order from Deliveroo

Sandwiches! Great ones at that. For some bizarre reason, it’s not so easy to find a good one in this food-loving town, but walk the length of Swatow and you’ll find everything your sammie-filled dreams desire.

3 Swatow Street, 9120 6869

Koku Ryu Ramen

You won’t find any innovative dishes at this small and modest shop, but the quality and taste is top-notch. Koku Ryu Ramen serves up both Tsukemen-style noodles and regular ramen, and they specialise in thick, goopy broth that is not too greasy, not too salty, and just perfectly umami.

29 Swatow Street, 2915 2261


Order from Deliveroo

Sup, soup? We like Tallore’s attitude towards serving wholesome, hearty, and healthy food, all at reasonable prices. In a world where a bottle of pressed juice can cost $72, why pay so much just to be able to treat your body right? We recommend their chilli con carne. Plus, they offer a “souper set” ($78) and we are suckers for good food and good food puns.

Shop D, 7-17 Amoy Street, 2327 8630

La Rotisserie

With a rotating menu to guarantee the freshness of their ingredients, French takeaway La Rotisserie is an easy to-go choice for a quick meal. The portions are generous, the roasted chicken skin is crispy (just the way we like it), the potatoes are fluffy, and, best of all, the price is right.

Omotesando Koffee

Tokyo’s own beloved coffee shop has up and moved sticks to Hong Kong, landing in our very own ‘hood. We feel pretty lucky, and if you love your coffee, you will too.

24-25 Lee Tung Avenue

Le Pain Quotidien

Boulangerie fare made with organic ingredients from this Belgian brand quietly taking over the entire planet with their homemade breads and fresh, healthy options.

40-41 Lee Tung Avenue, 2520 1801

Image title


This peacock-inspired bar has incredibly detailed décor, live performance art and creative cocktails, with one of the best outdoor-but-indoor areas in the city. It’s the place to display your own proud plume while taking in their opulent display.

1/F, 41A Lee Tung Avenue, 2520 1117

Passion by Gerard Dubois

From homemade casseroles and pizzas to freshly whipped up gelato and chocolate, this is a lunch-time dream. This two-storey eatery combines French patisserie, confiserie, and boulangerie into a casual counter-style cafe downstairs with a full service restaurant above. The newly-baked bread smells alone will pull you in from all the way down the block.

Shop G11, G12 & F12A, Lee Tung Avenue, 2833 6778

Stone Nullah Tavern

Order from Deliveroo

Fabulous American comfort food, one of the best restaurant sustainability programmes in the city, and a commitment to using fresh local produce, all from the cool people behind our Central-based faves Linguini Fini and Posto Pubblico. This is all on top of another very serious reason to visit, their crazy great “Beat the Clock” weekday happy hour starts at $1 at 5pm and doubles every 20 minutes until 7. SNT proves you can be no-nonsense about the earth’s issues and very fun at the same time.

69 Stone Nullah Lane, 3182 0128

Order from Deliveroo

Chinese-style noodles played up molecular style, but without the crazy price-tag attached. This is an oldie but a goodie, especially if you like to have fun with your food.

11 Hing Wan Street, 2915 2261

Serge et Le Phoque

Sporting their first Michelin star this year, as well as our Foodie Forks Chef of the Year title, this fine French is found juxtaposed in the grit of the Wanchai market. Its casually beautiful design is loved by all who choose to feast their eyes, and taste buds, within its cool confines.

Tower 1, The Zenith, 3 Wan Chai Road, 5465 2000

Capital Café

This is a no frills, old-school Hong Kong-style diner. It's cheap, it's fast, it's good, and nothing's written in English, so you know it’s legit. Their scrambled eggs, fried with Hokkaido milk and topped with black truffle, are a hot pick.

Shop B1, G/F, Kwong Sang Hong Building, 6 Heard Street, 2666 7766

Image title

Dim Dim Sum

Freshly-made dim sum at easy-going prices. Bring some friends and share your meal to sample all the yum cha staples as well as specialty goodies Dim Dim Sum has to offer. The oversized mushrooms are, in fact, stuffed baos (hey, it fooled us!) and the piggie buns will make your Instagram and Snapchat very happy.

7 Tin Lok Lane, 2891 7677
