Dumpling Restaurant

“The legendary Taiwanese dim sum restaurant opened their first Hong Kong branch in Causeway Bay before moving onto an additional three other locations dotted around town, although this is still our favourite. The expertly crafted xialongbao (a sort of twisted dim sum with a range of fillings) are by-now legendary and an absolute must try, especially the fancy black truffle and pork. Other highlights include tofu with crab roe and the classic salabao steamed buns with a range of fillings. One of the best things about Din Tai Fung is the food is typically less oily than other dim sum joints around town. Opening Hours: 11:30 - 22:00 Address: G/F, Delay No Mall, 68 Yee Wo St, Causeway Bay Tel: +852 3160 8998 ”

Gastropub

“It used to be one of the biggest pawn shops in Hong Kong, now it has been preserved and transformed into a Wan Chai staple, request a seat at the balcony for brunch or an afternoon drink, and just watch the hustle and bustle of Wan Chai”

Restaurant
“A Vietnamese street food experience, (Bia Hoi) fresh Vietnamese draft beer style bar and eatery. The casual 45-seat space is a comfortable but lively (i.e. noisy) hangout, with a minimalist modern design that still feels laidback and completely unpretentious. Highlights: VFC (Vietnamese Fried Chicken Wings), Short rib lettuce wrap, Morning Glory, Pho Roll. Cocktails: Pho-jito, Far East Smash, Saigon Sour. P.S. Walk-in only. If you want to eat inside without a wait, pop in early before the crowds settle in. ”

Chinese Restaurant
$$$
“Ho Lee Fook is best when you’re craving the addictive qualities
 of Asian takeaway and a loud Chinatown-basement vibe—except here dishes are creatively executed, ingredients are carefully sourced and a touch of restraint allows for appreciation of an unconventional approach. The concept is intentionally ironic in Hong Kong a city where diners demand authenticity in their Chinese cuisine. Homey dishes are served family-style, mostly plated in a nonchalant mound and heavily seasoned with spices, coriander and fried shallots capturing the essence of the chef’s Taiwanese background. Highlights: Mom’s dumplings, Kurobuta pork char siu, Fried Brussels sprouts with cauliflower and bacon chilli jam, Hamachi P.S. Walk-in only. If you want to eat inside without a wait, pop in early before the crowds settle in. ”

Restaurant
“You won’t be served if you just turn up at this clubby, masculine bar high above Causeway Bay – it’s by appointment only. Odd perhaps, but worth the trip if you are serious about whisky and bourbon. Several dozen varieties are served here, in large brandy balloons with large orbs of ice hand-chipped by the Japanese proprietor to maximise the tasting experience. ”
