Get ready to wine and dine your way through the Westside! Team Sassy headed over to get the inside scoop on what you can expect from the chilled out tastes on offer in the Kennedy Town City Wine Walk.
Think you know Kennedy Town? Think again! The Hong Kong Wine & Dine city walk takes you on a relaxing stroll to sample everything from pub food to pizza, French cuisine to fusion tapas, tacos, Italian, cocktails and more!
Sassy Pick – Winstons
Coffee by day and cocktails by night are the order of the day at this Kennedy Town institution. Our team loved perching themselves on the streetside bar stools and enjoying a few casual drinks. The Grippy Tannins immediately caught our eye on the cocktail list – an intriguing mix of silky smooth coffee liqueur, vermouth and red wine – it was a surprisingly smooth and subtle martini that became a quick favourite! The Pumpkin Spice Latte Martini perfectly captured the Autumn vibes and for those who’d prefer to stick to the classics, you can’t go wrong with Winstons’ signature Espresso Martini.
- A Winstons cocktail is two tokens.
Sassy Pick 2 – 11 Westside
Still haven’t made your way over to try out the innovative flavours dished up by celebrity Chef Esdras Ochoa at 11 Westside? Now is your chance! The Cauliflornia Veggie taco was a winner for the vegetarians in our crowd and the fresh flavours of the scallop ceviche are not to be missed. Pair your tapas with an LA “OG” Paloma – with tequila grapefruit soda, salt and lime.
- All dishes at 11 Westside are excellent value and just one token each!
Sassy Pick 3 – The Wilshire
Never ones to shy away from a speakeasy, a stop for a cocktail at The Wilshire was a must-visit on our Wine Walk. Flick a switch at the back of 11 Westside and enter this cozy neighbourhood watering hole. We loved the refreshing flavours of The Flower Shop – a gin-based cocktail made with elderflower and lime; while appreciating the complexity of the Filthy Rich – a bittersweet take on a Manhattan.
- All Wilshire cocktails are 1 token.
Sassy Pick 4 – GRAIN
With 17 taps pouring more than just beers, GRAIN is a gastropub for food and beer lovers alike! Our team loved the chilled out vibe of this waterfront brewery and thoroughly enjoyed pairing our Gweilo Pale Ale with a Buck Rarebit Pinsa – GRAIN’s answer to a pizza!
- A beer and pinsa at GRAIN will set you back 3 tokens.
Sassy Pick 5 – Dough Bros
You can’t go wrong with pizza and Sassy favourites Alvy’s and Dough Bros are both on the Kennedy Town Wine Walk. We sampled the exclusive Pepperoni Supreme + Jalapeños pizza and Apple Pie Doughnuts from Dough Bros. Both all-around hits with the team.
- One Pepperoni Supreme + Jalapeños pizza, three piping hot apple and cinnamon doughnuts and two beers will set you back 5 tokens.
Sassy Tip: Pick up your Dough Bros to-go, pop on over to the promenade, crack open a beer and sit back and relax as the sun goes down. Bliss!
