It’s that time of the week again where we bring to you the best of this city’s eats. Four of our favourite and/or newly discovered joints to kickstart the weekend with because the good life always begins with good food.

Little Bao

Taiwanese ‘bao' inspired eatery Little Bao started as a pop-up and moved into it’s very own digs opposite equally trendy PMQ. We love the short but sweet menu, each dish lovingly curated in a unique fusion manner. Our picks? The Brussel Sprouts, Lamb Tartare, Fish Tempura Bao, Szechuan Fried Chicken Bao and always, always save room for their dessert bao. Always.

G/F, 66 Staunton St, Central, Hong Kong

Ho Lee Fook

Inspired by old school Hong Kong restaurants and infused with the spirit of late night Chinatown hangouts from 1960’s New York, Ho Lee Fook is a not-to-be-missed kitchen on Elgin Street. The head chef’s inventive approach to flavours brings exquisite dishes from the Prawn Toast x Okonomiyaki to the stir-fried asparagus, the shies Hokkaido scallops to the Roast Goose. Each dish is beautifully finished with a plethora of ingredients that clash and complement in equal weighting.

Elephant Grounds

Stylish and humble all at once, Elephant Grounds does awesome coffee, awesome ice cream sandwiches and even better food. The menu rotates but we can confirm their sandwiches, ramen and soft tacos are simply not to be missed.

Shop C, G/F, 42-28 Fashion Walk, Paterson St, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

The Flying Pan

The next time you’re hoping to fend off a raging hangover or pick up a classic greasy fry-up at 2am after a night out, try out The Flying Pan. This 24-hour joint in Central serves up eggs in every way you can think of as well as thick milkshakes, devilishly good pancakes and fresh juice. Or take the kids on a weekend morning.
