The ultimate hodgepodge of cultures, Hong Kong’s complex history of immigration, foreign regimes and bustling tourism has made for one of the most diverse gastronomic scenes in the world. From Michelin star restaurants to cheap and cheerful street stalls, this city really does have it all. These are 3 of Iron Chef and founder of Jinjuu, Judy Joo’s favourite Hong Kong hot spots.
For some of Hong Kong’s finest dim sum, head to Tin Lung Heen. A Michelin star restaurant boasting a delicious menu of authentic Cantonese cuisine, the restaurant also offers spectacular views of the city from the 102nd floor of the tenth tallest building in the world. Be sure to try the chef’s signature dish – barbecued Iberian pork; a tender siu mei treasure char-roasted in an outstanding marinade.
On the 49th floor of The Upper House, the first thing you’ll notice at Café Grey Deluxe is the stunning panoramic view of Victoria Harbour. Favouring organic seasonal ingredients, the cross-cultural menu offers a fusion of European and Asian flavours as well as a mouthwatering array of tipples to satisfy your thirst.
Quietly tucked away above the hubbub of central Hong Kong, the authentic Indian food on offer at Bombay Dreams is a lovely blend of fresh aromatic ingredients. Spot the jars of spices lining the kitchen shelves and you’ll know that you’re about to be treated to a meal bursting with richness and flavour. It’s an indisputable local favourite which is well worth the wait during its busiest hours.
