#lollefood Monthly – Jun 2015

#lollefood is the tag I use on Instagram for all my recommended food items devoured in Hong Kong. Every month I consolidate some of the new food discoveries I’ve made in attempt to give you all a basis for brainstorming your next dinner or snack outing.

See the previous versions here.

New restaurants

Viet Kitchen opened in Nexxus building and is a convenient Vietnamese alternative for any IFC-dwellers. While things were generally quite good, the beef pho was underwhelming and I think I just prefer Bep or Nha Trang for Vietnamese food.

Location: G/F Nexxus Building, 41 Connaught Road, Central


Ore-no Kappou opened earlier this year in the heart of LKF, Central and serves some of the best quality Japanese food I’ve had in a long time. The prices are not cheap but worth it for what you get. See the full review here.

Location: 6/F California Tower, Lan Kwai Fong, Central

Wagyu beef steak (HK$400) – excellent quality meat with delicious marbling

Double D Burger is another new (ish) burger spot close to LKF. The beef patty was super juicy and the bun was soft on the inside. All in all, likely my second favourite burger place in Hong Kong.

Location: 22 Wellington St, Central

Single D (HK$80) – Loved the juicy beef patty of the burger (but fries in the background were only so so)

Americanos is an American-style cafe that serves kimchi quesadillas and other good comfort food that makes a perfect brunch. Their pour over coffee was also simple, cheap (HK$25) and delicious.

Location: G/F, 2 Lok Ku Rd, Sheung Wan

Heuvos Americanos (HK$85) – One of Americanos’ many delicious comfort choices

Let’s Jam has been super queues-down-the-street popular but I am clueless how they’ve attracted so many customers that they’re now opening a store in TST. Unless decoration is enough. The scones taste like bread buns and their jam was pretty unspectacularly standard.

Location: G/F, 9 See Cheung St, Sai Kung


Others discoveries

The Butcher’s Club Burger (favourite burger place in HK!) is now serving the “Mooink” burger on their secret menu until 22 June. It features a braised pork belly patty, beef patty, honey caramelised onions and Sriracha cheddar cheese! It’s 100% worth a try, although my heart is still with the Wu Tang style burger.

Location: 2 Landale St, Wanchai & 112-114 Wellington St, Central

Mooink burger (HK$160) – Braised pork belly patty, beef patty, honey caramelised onions and Sriracha cheddar cheese

Feast is collaborating with Franc Franc to serve a beautiful and value-for-money tea set this month from 15 June to 10 July. They’ve even designed the food items to go with the tableware. Read the full review here.

Location: EAST Hotel, 1111 King’s Rd, Taikoo Shing


Five Coffee Company is definitely a hidden hipster gem in Sai Kung. I loved the coffee, as well as its laid back decor and vibe. A highly recommended weekend spot. I haven’t had the chance to try out their food though!

Location: 3 Sai Kung Hoi Pong St, Sai Kung
