Employees Only- the hottest spot in LKF

The highly anticipated opening of this NYC speakeasy and restaurant has finally happened and we at Foodbabyhk had to try it!  This late night dining and drinks concept was originally thought up by 5 bartenders who wanted to create a space that catered to the many F & B workers to relax and splash their…

Kyozasa: A homely Japanese restaurant

I have been to Kyozasa many times and it never fails to deliver a tasty meal. I came here for the first time for my friend’s farewell dinner. It seems to be a very popular place amongst expat Japanese and rightly so, they have all the favourites on the menu from sashimi and sushi, salad…

Bond – Tai Hang’s great getaway

Us Foodbabies absolutely LOVE the hip and chilled restaurant vibe in Tai Hang. The area that was once famous for its car repair shops, now has a few great restaurants and bars with none of the hectic Central/Soho atmosphere. This weekend, to celebrate the somewhat sunny weather, we headed over to Bond. Neatly hidden on…

Sama’s EXPLOSIVE soup curry

You would think showers would be limited to April. Alas, it appears that April and May showers, will (hopefully) bring June flowers. In need of comfort food during these rainy May days, my colleagues and I trekked up to Gough Street to sample a Sapporo-an specialty- spicy soup curry! Sama has a welcoming feel with…

Undeserving and overrated Pici Pasta Bar

In order to prepare for a review, I usually make sure I have enough photos and have sampled enough of the dishes to give a balanced and fair opinion. In this case, I do not feel I have adequately met these criteria, however I feel compelled to write this as there are a few posts…

Funky beats and fresh eats at Tokyo Lima

Hong Kong lost a fantastic restaurant in Chicha, the swanky Peruvian restaurant that served their famous platter of ceviche and authentic Pisco sours. The Pirata Group, that has also brought us la Pirata and the Optimist (review on foodbaby) have wowed us so far with their offerings and lucky for us, have brought the chef…

Unappetizing local fare at Lee L(h)o Mei

I would certainly not call myself a local cuisine expert, despite living in HK for 6 years now and counting. I have been to a few cha chan tengs in my time and experienced AMAZING and reasonably priced food. ZS Hospitality Group have one more restaurant on 8th Lyndhurst Terrace and if you have read…

New Kid on the Block – Tsukemen at Zagin

This place is more of a new baby having only been open for a month, Zagin is fresh from Osaka. Located on King Kwong Street in the heart of Happy Valley, this is their first Hong Kong store. There’s been a lot of Japanese food chain first-in-Hong Kong openings, so you’re probably wondering, is it…

Afternoon Tea at Above & Beyond

I always get asked where to recommend for afternoon tea and the most typical answer you’d expect would be something like The Peninsular for their traditional style of food and setting. Although The Peninsular is a great option, sometimes you just want to explore out of the norm and into something a little more innovative…

Funky French eats at Figaro

Tucked on the chic and hip Shin Hing Street along with some cool cafes and vintage furniture stores, is a quaint French restaurant that aims to turn the classic French flavours into modern, artistic and moreover flavourful creations. I have been here for lunch twice now and have been impressed by the offerings. The lunch set…

Hong Kong’s art month is upon us , with an abundance of gallery exhibits, events and festivals, we can fully immerse ourselves in the art scene. Restaurants have also leaped on the bandwagon so to really get into the mood, I made a reservation at ATUM, a super stylish dessert only restaurant that turns dessert…
