The Hong Chi Association will also be opening hc:Bistro, its 13th catering and social enterprise project at Tai Kwun soon. Although no open date has been announced, we can expect fresh farm-to-table food, which will be prepared and served by empowered individuals with intellectual disabilities. Though the restaurant will be in the confines of the old prison, the message that everyone can live without boundaries shines through.
We’ve also heard whispers that Chef David Thompson’s famed Thai street food restaurant Long Chim will be making its Hong Kong debut in the Armoury Building. While an opening date is looking to be closer to September, this news already has us excited for what’s to come!
To round out the Tai Kwun food and beverage outlets, we are also anticipating the arrival of Behind Bar, a bar cleverly named for its location looking out into the prison yard, along with Menya Musashi, a quick ramen stop named after Japan’s legendary samurai, on the ground floor of the Superintendent’s House. Stay tuned for more news!
