4 New Restaurants to Check Out in Hong Kong

The city’s best hospitality groups have been busy this summer, and it’s looking oh-so-delicious

If you thought summer was a time to slow down, you’re (mostly) wrong. Sure, your work schedule might be a little lighter with everyone out of the office, but your social calendar should be filled to max capacity, especially with all these great restaurants opening.

Call your gang and schedule a few dinner dates to check out these four new restaurants in Hong Kong, ASAP.

Taqueria Super Macho

Does Hong Kong need another Mexican restaurant? Yes, of course it does. What a ridiculous question. Black Sheep Restaurants just opened Taqueria Super Macho on Bridge Street. The group’s first casual taco joint is exactly what the city has been missing. The vibe here is casual and fun, and the food is, well, ‘super macho’, which means ‘really delicious’! The menu focuses on seafood with bright and colourful flavours from limes and chillies. Of course, the tacos are a must-try, but don’t forget about the other dishes, like a charcoal-grilled Mexican street corn. Wash it all down with a margarita and have the time of your life.

Rajasthan Rifles

Another Black Sheep Restaurants opening, Rajasthan Rifles is an Anglo-Indian mess hall. It honours a period of military history in the 1920s when the British Indian Army accepted officers of Indian heritage. While tensions between England and India were fraught, the food found a certain harmony. Here, Black Sheep Restaurants imagines what might have been served in those mess halls, simple, delicious dishes that bring together the best of both worlds. It’s the group’s first opening on the Peak, and the kitchen is helmed by Executive Chef Palash Mitra of the Michelin-starred New Punjab Club.

The Leah

Chef James Sharman, who has become something of a culinary darling through his global pop-up restaurants with One Star House Party, finally has a permanent location for his creations. Just opened in Causeway Bay, The Leah brings a bit of classic English style to Hong Kong. Expect garden party vibes on the expansive green terrace, and British comfort food. Using locally sourced vegetables, high quality proteins and sustainable seafood, the kitchen creates everything from scratch. It’s hearty, homey and oh-so-moreish. Don’t miss the Scotch Egg & Soldiers or the gorgeous Beef Wellington.

JIA Group has teamed up with Julien Royer, the man behind this year’s Best Restaurant in Asia. The new concept is called Louise, and it is chef Julien’s first venture outside of Singapore. For Royer, this is a way to reconnect to his roots and create heritage recipes from France, full of familiarity and nostalgia. The new restaurant is taking over the Aberdeen Street Social space.
