Fish School, Sai Ying Pun’s cozy seafood hideout, has recently launched a new menu filled with grilled, hot, cold, and specialty delights. In an effort put together by Fish School’s Culinary Director David Lai and Executive Chef Chris Ma, their new menu offers something for everyone. The prices of the main dishes may be a bit steep, but the intimate vibe of the restaurant (try to snag a seat at the chef’s counter) along with the high quality ingredients make Fish School a restaurant you should check out.
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.
Having already dined at the Mr Fox section (the second floor of the restaurant) of Mr & Mrs Fox for dinner a little while back, I was tempted to try Mrs Fox on the main floor. Mrs Fox is the more casual section, offering a different menu and atmosphere for diners. Though the menu is rather small, where Mrs Fox lacks on quantity, it makes up for in quality. Mr & Mrs Fox is a great option if you’re in the Quarry Bay area and are looking for a restaurant that offers classy comfort food in a modern setting.
Swire is on a roll as they open yet another restaurant (after The Continental in Admiralty and Public in Taikoo) in the heart of Hong Kong Island’s Eastern business district; Quarry Bay. Mr & Mrs Fox caters to a wide audience, offering three floors with distinct dining differences. Their food has a refined simplicity to it that leaves you wanting to try every dish on the menu, and their service is some of the best we’ve had at a modern restaurant that is still able to exude a sense of casual. Needless to say, Mr & Mrs Fox gets two thumbs way up for their all-around fantastic dining experience.

The service is friendly and quick, and the food consists of high quality ingredients ranging from sushi to ramen to grilled dishes.

If you’re tired of going to the same type of bars and are looking for a different dining and bar experience, The Woods Hong Kong has you covered with their innovative prix fixe menu that change every few months. Their recently launched “Tidal Waves” is certain to offer any seafood lover a spectacle for the eyes, and a whirlwind of flavours and textures for the mouth. We loved how this menu is very much about the experience of eating and drinking, focusing on quality ingredients, and informative and engaging staff.
