Mirror And Vegan Concept

To the delight of veggies everywhere, this western vegan food restaurant has its soft opening on 9 November and will offer 30% off until 19 November from 11:30am to 1pm, and 20% off the rest of the day! Its concept is the “plate is your mirror, foods are your own reflection,” and guests can choose from a variety of signature dishes including Spaghetti aglio olio e pepperoncino, deep-fried truffle risotto with tomato sauce, and baked penne with creamy cheese sauce. Cocktails and wine are available.

Although we’ve mentioned MEATS before, it has just opened its doors and is now taking reservations. Touting itself as the “no reservation, no service charge meat bar,” we are looking forward to checking it out, so stay tuned for our review!

Plato 86

This new tapas bar has a happy hour that’s making us take notice. From 3pm to 8pm daily enjoy a glass of sangria for just $38 (a pitcher is $148) as you munch on tapas or a la carte options (seafood, meat, salads and more!) from the menu. Starters range from $98, mains from $125.

Paper Moon

Just opened, this Italian spot is the latest addition to the Ocean Terminal in TST. Featuring a breathtaking HK skyline view, it has a vast selection of exclusively Italian appetisers, mains, salads and desserts on offer. Appetisers start at $118 and mains range from $148 all the way up to $1,288 (for the Fiorentina alla griglia con verdure, a seven-week aged black angus porterhouse)!

La Brata

Another new Italian resto, but this one’s in Central. It calls itself a “simple wine and dine” concept where diners can eat in or take out. Its vibe is more casual but it boasts a wide selection of cheeses, meats and pastas we cannot wait to try!

Also, for $350 to $500 per person, it offers private dining options and catering with free flow beer, food and wine.

Sai Kung just gave you another reason to haul your happy behinds out there. Aside from its beauty, it has a new seaside restaurant! Featuring brews including Lion Rock (ranging from $64) and Yardley Brothers ($74) as well as cocktails, it’s a nice place to sit outside, sip a drink and enjoy an afternoon. Every Friday night there will be live music, and happy hour here is Monday through Friday from 4pm to 7pm ($50 beers!). A set lunch for $118 gets you a soup or salad, a main (grilled chicken, pulled pork, penne pasta or salmon) and a soft drink, tea or coffee. You can upgrade to an alcoholic beverage for a few dollars more.

Momentai, Kiosk 1, Sai Kung Waterfront, Wai Man Road, Sai Kung, Hong Kong,

A new modern European resto has opened up in Central and we’re excited to try it out. Chef Barry Quek leads the kitchen here at Beet, and it has hopped on the seasonal produce wagon, offering menu items to mirror those that are fresh from the market. Two Course Lunch Menus ($190) or Three Course Lunch Menus ($245) are generous, offering freshly baked bread, a starter, a main and dessert. For dinner, it suggests the Five Course Tasting Menu ($690) to get the full experience of its menu options.

La Piola

Owners Mira and Enrico finally found a new home for their Italian food resto, La Piola after it closed in 2016. It has now set up shop (it had a trial run this past summer) in an historic building dating back to the 1890s. According to historians, the building, which is one of the few remaining Chinese heritage structures in Hong Kong, also features the famous Woo Cheong Pawn Shop, as well as several other restaurants including The Pawn by Tom Aikens and Ko Thai.

La Piola, 60A-66 Johnston Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong,

Full House Seafood Restaurant

Seafood lovers listen up! Head to Whampoa for a taste of the sea with new resto Full House Seafood Restaurant. Promising the freshest of daily catches, Full House serves decadent emperor crab specials, alongside other classic Chinese dishes.

The latest addition to the Ocean Terminal is calling itself a contemporary Chinese restaurant. With two areas entitled “love” and “passion,” guests will be treated to a mid-Century modern vibe interior and a 270-degree view of Victoria Harbour. Featuring signature dishes including Fried Vermiceli with Crab Meat, Egg and Bean Sprouts, we can’t wait to try it out!
