Where To Find Lunch Under $100 in Wan Chai

You’ll never be a dollar short with these options!

 

When I lived in the UK, lunches generally consisted of a £3 meal deal from Sainsburys or Boots, and yet here in HK I can easily spend $200 a day on lunch alone. And to be honest, I’d rather save some of that well-earned cash for junk boats, free flow Prosecco brunches and weekends away. Thankfully, with so many yummy options in Wan Chai, I’m glad I’m past the days of supermarket sandwiches. So here are some options for delicious lunchtime meals that won’t break the bank and will leave your tummy full without emptying your wallet.

Ho Sing Coffee Shop (Andy’s Fried Rice)

This tiny open-air kitchen serves up arguably the best fried rice in Hong Kong. Catering to the early worker/late-night crowd, Andy’s opens at 4am ’til lunchtime, offering fried rice, hot off a teppanyaki grill. Order the “Andy’s Special” for a mixture of runny egg, char siu and other classic Hong Kong flavours, or go for the “Jackie’s Special” for a little more spice (both $46).

Note: the resto’s name is in Chinese, but it’s referred to as Andy’s Fried Rice.

Passion by Gerard Dubois

With so many salads and sandwiches to choose from, Passion is definitely a place to revisit. I fell in love with it straight away as all the food is simply delicious and exactly what I’d been craving. The salad choice is superb, and each dish is oozing flavour. If you’re simply looking for a decent sandwich, look no further. A range of breads with deli fillings that will leave you spoiled for choice. A set lunch for small or large salad box includes three or four choice and is between $48 (small) and $66 (large). The gourmet sandwich selection is between $49 and $62.

La Rotisserie

My world in Hong Kong literally changed when I discovered just how delicious the roasted potatoes are here. I eat at La Rotisserie multiple times a week and the chicken is just perfect. The potatoes are cooked in chicken juices and I could genuinely eat my body weight in them. Fresh vegetables are also available and add those much-needed nutrients. Options here are varied – you can easily have the set lunch, which is a quarter chicken with a side and a soup for just $78, or choose from the sides or soups of the day for just $28 each.

Bread & Beast

Serving up gourmet sarnies, Bread & Beast is a great spot to hit if your hungry come lunch time. Starting at $78 enjoy a choice of sandwich, and add on a side and a drink of your choice. We love the Kentucky San and the Ngau Lam Wich, with a side of lennon fries. If you’re after something a little lighter, any of the classic sandwich can also be turned into kale salad (for an additional $10).
