HOT NEW TABLES November 2018: New Restaurants in Hong Kong

1 / 8

Baked Café Bar

You might already know of South-African chef Zahir Mohamed – maybe you went to his PMQ Workshop, visited his Baked Bistro pop-up at Taste Kitchen, or you’ve seen him on Masterchef. If you haven’t heard of him, this is your chance to get in on the freshly baked sourdough action. Baked is shaping up to become your go-to “hole in the wall” spot, offering breakfasts and lunch by day and transforming into a tapas and cocktails bar at night. Eats include a Baked Benedict ($145) with basil infused hollandaise, two poached eggs, and bresaola on the breakfast menu and Crispy Chicken Wings ($130) coated in a homemade spicy wing on the dinner menu. Check out the Instagram for more updates.

Promising a “dazzling new take” on desi cuisine, contemporary Indian restaurant Daarukhana is ready to take on curry myths and shrug off conventions. Intended for sharing, the menu features dishes such as a pan-seared minced American Duck Shami with fig chutney and smoked papadum and Dum Ke Chaap, lamb chops prepared in the traditional North Indian way — slow-cooked in a rich gravy seasoned with a spicy saffron sauce. Make sure to check out the Tandoor menu and the vegetarian dishes available. Socials are coming soon (as of writing), but you can contact Daarukhana at 9889 9768 or [email protected]

Daarukhana, G/F & 1/F, Tai Yip Building, 141 Thomson Road, Wan Chai,

Five Guys

Five Guys is making its Asian debut! The global burger fave is set to open its doors in Hong Kong on Monday 19 November. Head to Wan Chai for hand-cut fries, customisable milkshakes and, of course, its famous handmade grilled burgers. Fun fact: Five Guys don’t have freezers in-store, only coolers, guaranteeing that everything you eat is fresh! Stay tuned for our full review coming soon…

There’s also a selection of seasonal vegetable dishes available. Check out its Omakase menu (starting from $288), featuring an appetizer, six meat skewers, six vegetable skewers, a simmered dish, soup, a grilled dish, seasonal seafood, and rice.

Sanwa Jo

In Japanese, “san” means three, and “wa” refers to Japanese cuisine: Sanwa Jo pays tribute to tradition, offering something for everyone through three main culinary themes! Featuring sushi, teppanyaki and robatayaki, it promises to be a journey full of different tastes and textures. The grand opening will be on Sunday, 1 December, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep this on your radar – guests and friends can still be entertained throughout November.

Sanwa Jo, 46 Fuk Lo Tsun Road, Kowloon City, 2321 0867,

Super Sweets Gallery

Next time you pass a city’super (specifically Harbour City, ifc mall, Times Square and New Town Plaza) look out for Japanese chocolatier Hironobu Tsujiguchi’s Super Sweets Gallery. This is the first opening outside of Japan, bringing the traditional wagashi gift boxes and acclaimed biscuits, chocolates and cakes to Hong Kong. You can even meet the celebrity patissier on Saturday 10 November from 3pm to 6pm at Harbour City for a dessert-making demonstration!

Terrible Baby

Located on the fourth floor of the rebranded Eaton Hong Kong, Terrible Baby promises to be a bar and performance space like no other. Bartender Edgar Santillan has created a beverage programme including innovative cocktails such as the pink peppercorn vodka “Terrible Mary” ($95) and “This Guy” ($85), a Fruit Loops-infused vodka. Featuring an outdoor terrace and a music room, it’s shaping up to be a venue for salon-style live music and a platform for local talent!
