The Walrus

Located in Soho and a place to indulge in market-fresh selections from the depths of the sea. Feast on treats like Oyster Po' Boy and vegetarian oysters at this nautical-themed oyster bar. 

The Walrus, 64 Staunton Street, Sheung Wan

Nakamura Tokichi

On the 18th floor of The ONE at TST sits this Kyoto import serving refined Japanese dessert. Specialises in shaved ice and soft serve with matcha/hojicha flavours alongside stunning views of the harbour.

18/F, The ONE, 100 Nathan Road, TST

Espresso Alchemy in Tsim Sha Tsui

Located in the bottom of WK Square mall on Nathan Road (take exit C from the MTR). The biggest of Espresso Alchemy's growing outposts, this one serves food alongside their high-quality artisan-roasted coffee. 

Shop 36, WK Square, 36-44 Nathan Road, TST


Nestled in an old-ish mall in TST, Sangeetha cooks up solid vegetarian Indian cuisine. With over 30 outlets in Chennai, Sangeetha's recipes are derived from traditional cooking styles and they do a divine palak mushroom curry and paper dosa.

Foxtail & Broomcorn 

On Jervois St in Sheung Wan, the noodle shop with ethics has introduced two new chilly noodle dishes: Chiang Mai ($68) and Izumo ($88). Chiang Mai channels northern Thailand, with cold glass noodles, prawns and minced chicken tossed in spicy fish sauce dressing. Izumo is soba noodles with slow cooked duck with red pepper, garlic, cucumber, shallots, coriander and seaweed. 

G/F, 84 Jervois Street, Sheung Wan

The Buffet at the Clipper in Mandarin Oriental

Located in the Mandarin Oriental, the Clipper Lounge's buffet was full of surprisingly delicious choices, as buffets can so often be a bore. Try the seaweed salad, sesame ponzu dressing, the sashimi, and the wild mushroom and Parmesan orzo which is made fresh for every diner. 

Mezzanine Floor, Mandarin Oriental, 5 Connaught Road, Central

Isono New Cocktail Menu 

This PMQ-based Mediterranean eatery and bar is introducing new cocktail creations to its menu. For a summery tipple, try your hand at Bramble, a simple combination of sloe gin and blackberries. 

6/F Block B, PMQ, 35 Aberdeen Street, Central

New Bars:

Located next to the unsuspecting Shin Hing steps in the Gough Street vicinity, NEO channels an 80s pop rock vibe with its quirky cocktail menu and eclectic nightly DJs on rotation. 

10 Shin Hing Street, Sheung Wan


Hong Kong's first Osteria Berlinese, Mitte in up-and-coming creative hub PoHo - short for Po Hing Fong - mixes up handcrafted cocktails, simple but hearty Italian food and supports a bunch of art and music collaborators. Our favourite new bar. 

 1A Upper Station St, Sheung Wan
