One would think that, being on an island and all, Hong Kong would have some top-notch seafood restaurants. While there are a few that stand out, it’s hard to find a quality restaurant that focuses solely on serving up fresh and sustainable seafood. This is where Fishsteria comes in. Recently opened in Wan Chai by Gianni Caprioli (the man behind Giando, GIA, and EAT.it), this seafood restaurant will convert just about anyone into a seafood-lover.
Cecconi’s Italian, part of the well-known Dining Concepts venture, recently relocated to Wyndham Street from their former spot on Elgin and have brought over new head chef Michael Fox from the Cecconi’s in Melbourne, Australia to throw his modern contemporary flare into the menu. In lieu of their change, we wanted to head over to Cecconi’s for dinner to check out their new location and try some of the food.
Morton’s of Chicago first entered the culinary world in 1978 and has since expanded its brand (and mouth-watering steaks) worldwide. In Hong Kong, Morton’s sure knows how to make a trip to Kowloon worth it with their classic staples of steak and seafood. Morton’s of Chicago has recently added six new dishes to their fall “Prime Selections” menu, making a visit an absolute must if you’re in the market for quality food and service, a beautiful view of the harbour, and an overall wonderful dining experience. This wasn’t my first time dining at Morton’s (check out my review on Morton’s happy hour) and it certainly won’t be my last.
Private kitchens have been one of the latest Hong Kong buzz-worthy dining ventures that people can’t quite seem to get enough of. Whether it’s the interactive element between yourself, the dish, and the chef, or the more intimate environment, these smaller dining concepts seem to be sticking and always pack a full house. Herein comes Twenty Six by Liberty, formerly known as Liberty Private Works, with their mesmerizing ten-course modern and innovative degustation menu that is an absolute thrill for all senses.
Jamie’s Italian, by renowned chef Jamie Oliver, is a well-known chain of restaurants that have been rapidly popping up all over the world.

This is now his second restaurant in Hong Kong within the past year, showing no signs of slowing down. His new location in TST offers all the same tastes as the Causeway Bay branch, but with additional menu options and a very different atmosphere.
