Eat & Drink, What's On HK

Sassy’s Food Guide to Sai Kung

13 November, 2014

Sometimes we get sick of frequenting the same old restaurants in the same old neighbourhoods, so we’ve been venturing high and low to find out what else has been cooking in all corners of the ‘Kong. And what better place than Sai Kung to get away from it all? It’s the perfect place to spend a lazy Saturday or Sunday, soaking up the sun, grazing on nibbles and sipping coffee. We’ve rounded up some of the best places to eat and drink in this hub of the New Territories to get you off the island…

Sai kung cafe and bakerySai Kung Café and Bakery
This cute little cafe has some tasty local treats that will go down well after a little stroll. It has got some of the best Portuguese egg tarts you’ll ever have in Hong Kong (even better than Macau!). Their pineapple bun is also super yummy, and because everyone queues up for them, everything is fresh and hot out of the oven!

Sai Kung Café and Bakery, G/F, 6-7 Kam Po Court, 2 Hoi Pong Square, Sai Kung, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2792 3861

lets jamLet’s Jam
This adorable, dainty tea room does an excellent brunch as well as tasty sandwiches and salads. If it’s a nice day, why not grab a seat at the little table on their little porch and soak up some sun? Don’t forget to try their scones with homemade jam too for a real British afternoon tea experience… yum!

cafe bon bon de parisCafé Bonbon de Paris
It might be small and simple, but Café Bonbon de Paris does excellent French food! We can’t get enough of their fresh homemade pasta (which comes in original, tomato, spinach and beetroot flavour), especially when paired with their pesto, which is to-die-for!

Café Bonbon de Paris, Shop 64, Po Tung Road, Sai Kung, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2792 6733, www.facebook.com/cafe.bonbon.de.paris

If you’re a homesick Brit, you’ll be able to fix your craving for home comforts with some good ol’ fish and chips at Chip In Fish & Chips. They also serve DEEP FRIED OREOS. Chuck the calorie counter out the window and just enjoy. Enough said.

This bakery offers a variety of salads and hearty pastries and will have you banging on their door for more. Everything is made fresh daily from this locally-owned and run bakery. We love their Kwun Tong branch, which we checked out recently here!

BibiniBibini Nice Cream
This is the place to be if you’re in need of an icy treat. With a selection of about 20 gelato flavours in the freezer, the long line of people leading out the door proves it’s worth working up a sweat and fending off the crowds for! All homemade and of Italian quality are the real deal, with no artificial ingredients… a must try.

one thirty oneOne Thirty One
One Thirty One serves up contemporary French cuisine in a relaxed but elegant surrounding. The set menu comes with a hefty price tag, but all six courses (which change monthly) are divine. The lawn and outdoor terrace overlooking the sea make for an unbeatable retreat from the city craziness – check them out in our City Guide here.

Sing Kee Seafood
We hear it’s worth visiting Sai Kung for Sing Kee Seafood alone! Recently awarded a Michelin star, this 3-storey restaurant comes complete with private rooms and alfresco dining. Apart from the seafood dishes which make Sing Kee so popular, their crispy chicken is a must-try…
