Review: Alvy's

Contemporary New York-style pizzeria meets local craft beer in this delicious marriage of yeast and hops. Opened by Pat Gatherer (formerly of The Globe) and the Young Master Brewery team, the Western district just keeps getting cooler and cooler.

Review: Pazzeria (Mongkok)

In true Italian spirit, Pazzeria serves authentic comfort food – and you’ll have your choice of 16 different Italian craft beers on draught to pair with your meal.

Review: TokyoLima

You’ll be hard-pressed to find another Japanese-Peruvian eatery on this side of town. The beer choices might be a bit limited, but the amazing bites certainly make up for it!

Review: 99 Bottles

Boasting a “no happy hour” policy, you’ll get $45 pints of craft beer all day, every day in this cute little bottle shop and taproom.

Review: Bound by Hillywood

You’ll be walking into a haven of indie music, a wall of craft beer (Hong Kong’s first that’s all-cans!) and great coffee right in the heart of Kowloon.

Review: White Beard

From its original chippie stand at the Star Ferry, White Beard continues to deliver delicious deep-fried fare with a friendly, authentic atmosphere in their second location in Central.

Review: Dragon Noodles Academy

With decor inspired by traditional Chinese elements, including a five-metre-long golden dragon, the newly launched Dragon Noodles Academy (DNA) certainly isn’t skimping on the details.

Fond Farewell

Things are getting a little bit darker on Bridges Street, as The Bottle Shop Central has announced it will be closing its doors on March 19.

Review: Okra

Marked by an understated neon sign, Okra’s fast-rising prestige and reputation for being a culinary hotspot – an extension of Okra 1949 in Beijing – has been earned through the team’s delicate execution of progressive Japanese cuisine.

Review: Kaum / Potato Head

This has been our new favourite place to drop in for an after-work beer or cocktail at their super-chill tropical bar, followed by a taste of Indonesia’s best in the dining room next door.
