Restaurant
“A Vietnamese street food experience, (Bia Hoi) fresh Vietnamese draft beer style bar and eatery. The casual 45-seat space is a comfortable but lively (i.e. noisy) hangout, with a minimalist modern design that still feels laidback and completely unpretentious. Highlights: VFC (Vietnamese Fried Chicken Wings), Short rib lettuce wrap, Morning Glory, Pho Roll. Cocktails: Pho-jito, Far East Smash, Saigon Sour. P.S. Walk-in only. If you want to eat inside without a wait, pop in early before the crowds settle in. ”

Chinese Restaurant
$$$
“Ho Lee Fook is best when you’re craving the addictive qualities
 of Asian takeaway and a loud Chinatown-basement vibe—except here dishes are creatively executed, ingredients are carefully sourced and a touch of restraint allows for appreciation of an unconventional approach. The concept is intentionally ironic in Hong Kong a city where diners demand authenticity in their Chinese cuisine. Homey dishes are served family-style, mostly plated in a nonchalant mound and heavily seasoned with spices, coriander and fried shallots capturing the essence of the chef’s Taiwanese background. Highlights: Mom’s dumplings, Kurobuta pork char siu, Fried Brussels sprouts with cauliflower and bacon chilli jam, Hamachi P.S. Walk-in only. If you want to eat inside without a wait, pop in early before the crowds settle in. ”
