People are constantly asking our editors where they have eaten lately that they would recommend. To which we reply, check the website/read the magazine! But with the near vertiginous array of new restaurants (!), new menus (!), new concepts (!) and new executive chefs (!!!) in this city, along with more restaurant reviews, websites, blogs and magazines than one can poke a stick at, we are often ourselves at a loss and end up looking like this guy:
Further, with the nature of social media and the pace the culinary world adapts to the changing seasons, available produce and creative inspiration, we don't want you to miss out on a cheffy's one night only dish like this salmon Tataki with grilled salmon, jícama, cucumbers, mixed herbs and sesame. So we are going to put together five of the most intriguing food related happenings each week for you, lest you miss out and feel glum.
1) What to Eat at Work?
MunchBox is a revolutionary snacking platform that delivers tasty, healthy and guilt-free snacks to your office or home each month. By offering a monthly delivery of premium imported organic, all-natural snacks you stop doing the 4pm sugar-laden desk rummage.
2) New High End Restaurant?
Hanabi is a new omakase restaurant by the group who have brought you the likes of NUR, Amakaze and Bungalow, Prive Group. Head chef Michael Chan (previously of Café Kool and NOBU Intercontinental Hong Kong) brings his signature subtle Japanese cuisine to Knutsford Terrace, Tsim Sha Tsui.
3) More Casual Restaurants to Check Out?
Keeping in the Japanese theme, try these 6 ramen joints from Yau Ma Tei to Admiralty. Some of the hottest picks (warning: may be synonymous with longest queues) of Hong Kong Foodies.
4) Near the Beach?
Repulse Bay is becoming quite the foodie hub, with Meen & Rice now open in addition to Limewood, Coffee Academics, Classified, Lab Made and there are two more still to come. Check them all out here.
5) Live Music and Food?
While on the topic of Repulse Bay, a new venture by the fine people who brought you Bibo will be bringing you a new American restaurant called Hotshot. They have also set a cracking line up of artists up to play at their Go South weekend, which includes the likes of Naughty by Nature, Basement Jaxx and Claptone. More info here.
