If you like Honi Honi you are going to love Mahalo. From the very same creators of the beloved Wyndham St lounge, the Tiki-madness continues but this time in Wan Chai. Located in the QRE building, and in the penthouse no less, this will be a high end number with drinks going for $100+. A Hawaiian utopia, a Tiki wonderland, an eden of pineapple-coconut nonpareil you need to visit this summer.
Location: Wan Chai
Opens: End of June

The artisanal cocktail menu has many an individually sourced independent liquors such as pineapple infused Jamaican overproof rum, ginger honey water mescal and homemade cider vinegar syrup bitters among the many offerings to gratify the senses.
Opens: 15th June
It’s called HeyHome and located on Russell Street in Causeway Bay, just across Times Square. The specialty food store is one that focuses on rare healthfood products that are difficult to find in Hong Kong. Saucy.
The idea noble indeed; to offer a variety of healthy food choices in an organic food hut format. There will be Artisana raw cashew butter ($155), organic oatmeal (porridge) from the US ($60-$76) and organic hazelnut oil ($138) amongst the exhibited, which is great, because we are eating nuts and their evolved butter cousinslike it's going out fashion. #butterusup
