Hong Kong Dining: Comfort Food

Hands up if you’re a teeny, tiny bit obsessed with… food? Hong Kongers have a passion for all things delicious, and the Sassy Team is no exception. We have so many favourite dining spots and restaurants around town that we decided to share them with all of our hungry readers.

This week we’ve all chosen our favourite restaurants for comfort food in Hong Kong… so if you’re craving something warm and filling that will satisfy your belly, read on!

Sunday's Grocery

Maura:

One of my favourite comfort foods at the moment is a throw back to something my mama used to make me when I was little. A good old grilled cheese sandwich with a side of tomato soup from Sunday’s Grocery is currently my go-to. There is something so neighbourhoody about ordering take-out from this spot in K-Town. I find that you get the comfort you’re searching for from the staff, before you even take a bite of that mouthwatering sandwich!

 

Sunday’s Grocery, 66-68 Catchick Street, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong, www.sundaysgrocery.com

Linguini Fini

Lauren:

When I’m in desperate need of comfort food, Linguini Fini never disappoints. Delicious homemade pasta, huge cheese-laden pizzas and decadent desserts make this rustic Italian spot on Elgin Street a winner. The relaxed environment and friendly staff always put me at ease, and the prices are pretty reasonable considering the epic portions. Get me a Brooklyn New York Style Pie, ASAP!

 

Linguini Fini, 49 Elgin Street, Soho, Central, Hong Kong, 2387 6338, www.linguinifini.com

Din Tai Fung

Lexi:

When you think of comfort food, most people opt for a giant burger or huge vats of pasta, me? It’s all about dumplings. Steaming Xiao Long Bao brimming with delicious broth, spicy szechwan wontons, fluffy pork buns and bowl after bowl of hand made noodles and rich flavours. I’ve always turned to Chinese food when in need of a little home fix, even now that I’m living back in Hong Kong! A great place to hang with friends and family over great big baskets of food, Din Tai Fung is a firm favourite when in need of a little pick-me-up.

 

Din Tai Fung, Shop G3-11, G/F, 68 Yee Wo Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong; or 3/F, Silvercord Tower, 30 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong; or 4/F, Mira Mall, 132 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong, www.dintaifung.com.hk

Bread & Beast

Kat:

There’s nothing more satisfying than a fried chicken sandwich with chips on the side. You can imagine my absolute delight when Bread & Beast came on the scene and elevated the sandwich game to the next level. My go-to (and by go-to, I mean several times a month!), is the Kentucky San. We’re talking about crispy fried chicken, curry Kewpie mayo, nori, shredded white cabbage and pickled ginger. To compliment this indulgent comfort treat, there’s nothing better (in my opinion!) than the lotus root chips with fu yue aioli and spring onions. Check out their other sandwiches and combos that are guaranteed to get you through any day.

 

Bread and Beast, G/F 3 Swatow Street Wan Chai, Hong Kong, 9120 6869, www.breadandbeasthk.com

Tsui Hang Village

Niki:

As much as I enjoy the typical western comfort food, I always go back to my roots when I need a pick me up. That means Sunday Dim Sum at Tsui Hang Village in TST. As far as I can remember, my family have been dining here, and the staples haven’t changed. Pile on all the Char Siu Bao, Hah Cheung, Spring Rolls… it’s an endless list of deliciousness.

 

Tsui Hang Village,  22/F, Lee Theatre Plaza, 99 Percival Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong; or 5/F, Miramar Shopping Centre, 132 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong, www.tsuihangvillage.hk

BÊP

Jess:

I never thought I would pick noodles as my comfort food, but ever since I moved to Hong Kong, a big bowl of spicy pho has to be my go to comfort meal! While the pho in Vietnam is to die for, BÊP comes pretty close. My favourite pho noodle soup is the Pho Nom with beef brisket. Add in all the herbs and spices and indulge! With the weather being the way it has been, there is nothing better than noodles and soup to warm you up. BÊP also dedicates a section of their menu to Vietnamese street food and the Banh Xeo (Saigon Crepe) is a great addition!

 

BÊP, Lower Ground Floor, 9-11 Staunton Street, Soho, Hong Kong; or G/F, 88-90, Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong, www.bep.hk

Classified

Shaneli:

I’m surprised I’ve not turned into a bowl of pasta yet! I used to eat mac and cheese all the time at uni (I’m an impatient chef!) so the Mac and Cheese at Classified totally hits the spot for me. It’s deliciously warming on a cold winter’s day, it’s up the road from Sassy HQ for a quick lunch, and it’s baked to perfection. What’s not to love?! When I’m already feeling the bloat and want something a little lighter, I opt for the Eggs Florentine instead. It’s a great spot for breakfast, too!

 

Classified, 108 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, 2525 3454, www.classifiedfood.com

The Cupping Room

Surmayee:

Nothing comforts me like a really, really good avo toast with eggs, so it’s no surprise that my haunt is The Cupping Room in Sheung Wan. From the delicious sourdough bread (so many San Francisco memories…), to the perfectly seasoned avocado mash, to the Insta-worthy poached egg, this is truly the breakfast of champions and my go-to dish. They also serve some mean pastas if you’re around the area during lunchtime.

 

The Cupping Room, Shop LG/F, 299 Queen’s Road Central, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, www.facebook.com/CuppingRoomHK

Tsui Wah

Simran:

My absolute favourite comfort food place has to be Tsui Wah; no one does an egg sandwich or egg fried rice better than them at any point of the day! The bonus? You can wash that down with a milk tea that comes in a champagne bottle. What more could you ask for?

 

Tsui Wah, G-2/F, 15-19 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong; G/F, 84-86 Des Voeux Road Central, Central, Hong Kong. (See all other locations here)
