Hong Kong is a city of serious food lovers, meaning that the dining options are excitingly varied. While the local street food is definitely not to be missed, here are some of OROGOLD’s favorite high end dining spots in Hong Kong, where you can indulge in some of the best food in Asia, if not the world.
The China Club is the only members-only restaurant in Hong Kong, making it the most exclusive, and for years it has attracted an elite crowd. Its strong sense of tradition, history and culture is paired with exquisite Chinese dishes, offering up both home-style dishes as well as gourmet gastronomical delights. While you won’t be able to walk in off the street without a membership, many of the high-end hotel concierges will be able to book you a table.
Amber, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental
Not only is Amber one of the finest restaurants in Hong Kong, but it is also ranked in the top 50 restaurants of the world. OROGOLD highly recommends the Weekend Wine Brunch, which offers up a six course degustation menu, with each course paired with a different wine. While the caviar may be Amber’s signature dish, OROGOLD’s favorite has to be the melt-in-your-mouth Wagyu – something meat lovers should not leave the city without trying! Servers are attentive and knowledgable about the dishes and beverages, and add that personal touch that helps to make each visit even more memorable.
Le Dome de Cristal
The first Cristal branded restaurant in the world, Le Dome de Cristal serves up delectable French cuisine paired with some of the best wines that you will find in Hong Kong. The chef comes from a Michelin background, and this is instantly visible when your first dish is placed in front of you. From special seasonal menus to an eight-course degustation feast to a-la-carte options, the promise to tantalize your taste buds in new and exciting ways with each visit is always upheld.
The most acclaimed Japanese restaurant in the world did not take long to win over the hearts of those in Hong Kong, and it remains a firm favorite with both locals as well as visitors. In addition to Nobu’s signature dishes, you will also be able to try some unique new creations that make use of local ingredients. If you are feeling dazzled by the mouthwatering menu, OROGOLD recommends ordering the Oven Baked Black Cod, cooked in a lotus leaf and topped with yuzu and dried miso. For something slightly different, arrange your visit for the afternoon, where you can indulge in a Japanese afternoon tea, with a wide variety of delicious treats to choose from.
Hong Kong is always welcoming new restaurants, meaning that its food scene is constantly evolving. From the finest Japanese food in the world to traditional Chinese dishes to gourmet French cuisine, you will definitely not be leaving Hong Kong feeling hungry!
