Kasa: Restaurant Review

家香, Modern Cantonese fare in Wan Chai.

Located in the hushed area of Wan Chai, Kasa is home to modernised traditional Cantonese dishes with unique twist. Through a great passion to pursue the Hong Kong cuisine, the founder and the Chef of Kasa have been continually experimenting to bring a lot of inventions from locals’ staples on the table.


While the all-day dining restaurant showcases a playful ambience featuring an open kitchen, dai pai dong seating and a uniquely painted wall, the menu involves a list of big and bold creations to fully complete an unconventional dining experience.

There's the breakfast hamburger, which is a fluffy pineapple bun stuffed with Japanese barbecue pork, tangy ginger mayo and a sunny-side-up egg.


Some appetisers, which are offered during lunch and dinner, are Arancini-made with crispy claypot rice and Chinese preserved sausage instead of the ordinary risotto.

The scotch egg is wrapped with an interesting layer of steamed preserved veggies and minced pork in addition to a perfectly fried breadcrumb coating.


Surprisingly, the squid “noodle” was served cold, dressed with oyster sauce and cooked very tender.

Coming to our favourite mains, the Shanghainese braised beef short rib was simply fall off the bone and had a totally irresistible sweet and sticky glaze.


Imagine the salmon fillet that just melts across like butter. It is steamed and then seared excellently to be tender and moist, not to mention the crackly crispy skin that rivals the best roasted chicken.

Finally, our meal is complete with a homey new addition – a revamped BBQ pork and fried egg rice using slices of succulent pork neck. It is fantastic!

Never leave Kasa without ordering their world-renowned custard lava cake. It is made with a white chocolate batter and molten salted egg center, which can be  admired as an imitation to classic steamed buns.


Some more glamorous desserts to try are the crunchy Chinese fried dough (the churros) dusted with cinnamon sugar and refreshing homemade sorbet.

All in all, the inventive and MSG-free menu of Kasa is admirable and delectable. Make sure to try their house-ground coffee and Hong Kong milk tea too!
