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.
Specializing in Cajun classics, Moonshine & The Po’Boys brings a spicy Southern flare to Hong Kong’s bustling dining scene. Sprouting from a passion for soul food while living in the south, Tim Lau gives these dishes an upmarket twist by sourcing high quality ingredients. Besides serving up homey comfort food and a range of quality Prohibition-era beverages, you’ll also get to fill your ears (if you show up on the right night) with live jazz and blues. What more could you ask for in a restaurant?!
When most people think of Hong Kong, they picture an overpopulated city filled with skyscrapers and too much traffic. While they wouldn’t necessarily be wrong, this city has much more to offer visitors and expats alike. If you happen to be or was an expat in Hong Kong, or are just curious about what life might be like living in this beautiful concrete jungle, then Frank Wingate’s tale of 22 years of expattery in Hong Kong might strike a cord. He shares his funny, bizarre, and often relatable stories of life in Hong Kong in the book “Poxy Chicken”.
Whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan, or are just wanting to eat healthy for a change (which can prove to be difficult when living in Hong Kong), then you should head over to Maya Cafe Mediterranean Lifestyle on Moon Street in Wan Chai. The interior is welcoming and has outdoor seating in the back if you’re there on a not-too-hot, but not-too-cold day. The menu offers a uniquely wide selection of items that will please any palette.
I have been wanting to see the Flag Raising Ceremony at The Golden Bauhinia Square for quite some time, but with an early 7:45 am start, I found it difficult to crawl out of bed and head over to Wan Chai. However, everything seemed to align this past Sunday morning as I had an early night on Saturday and vowed to haul myself out of bed (which is becoming increasingly difficult to do with this cold weather) to watch the “enhanced” ceremony.
