With a quirky name, trendy interiors, and a mouthwatering menu, Ho Lee Fook has become a fast favourite with the city's foodies. The well curated menu, created by Chef Jowett Yu incorporates local favourites and a few of his own home grown recipes. Favourite dishes inlclude the traditional and moreish Mom's "Mostly Cabbage, A Little Bit Of Pork" Dumplings with sacha dressing, the Yunnan Style Wagyu Steak Tartare, the incredibly flavourful roast goose, the tender Roast Wagyu Short Ribs with jalapeno puree, green shallots, kimchi and soy glaze, and the refreshing Heirloom Tomato Salad with duck egg, cucumber and Chinese olive leaf. Each dish showcased intricate flavours and utilized fresh delicious ingredients. The lively atmosphere makes it a great spot for dining with friends and hanging out before a big night out. All the dishes are ideal for sharing and taste amazing paired with Chef Yu's specially imported Taiwanese whiskey. We are sure we will be returning for more in the very near future.

The team behind organic and trendy Locofama have teamed up with cultural gift shop, G.O.D., to create sister restaurant, Sohofama. They have successfully created a foodie heaven fusing creative, sophisticated, and quirky design with great quality produce, organic farming, and delicious healthy living. Sohofama's menu is a fusion of old classic Chinese recipes with modern techniques in cooking and organic living. They support local farming and community bringing a true sense of Hong Kong to the venue. We loved the industrial yet cozy space and sampled their "Soho's Classic Tasting Menu" so we could have a little of everything. Favourite dishes off the menu included the melt in your mouth Slow Cooked 48hr Natural US Beef Short Rib Pancake Sliders, the fragrant 24 Hour Drunken Organic Egg, the crispy and indulgent Stir Fried Tiger Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk, and the savoury and moreish Stir-Fried Organic US Pork Belly with Chili and Housemade Pancake Wraps. Every bite was delicious, comforting, and happily MSG free. The guilt free take on eating local food was refreshing. Flavour was never compromised and was actually enhanced with fresh, organic ingredients. Make sure to sample a few of their unique cocktails which combine fresh flavours and great display. An ideal spot for dining with friends or a quick lunch between shopping. We will definitely be returning for more and more.

When you have a penthouse as beautiful as the one at Double Six, it can by hard to convince yourselves to leave. We took advantage of the gigantic terrace and beautiful view by ordering from their in room dining menu and enjoyed dinner during sunset. We loved Double Six's take on the Nasi Goreng and the perfectly cooked Uno Minuti Bistecca paired with garlic butter. The staff expertly set up the table and we couldn't have had a more comfortable dinner.
