Fuck Yeah

Where:
Stones
1-9 Lin Fa Kung St West
Tai Hang

Phone number:
+852 2570 6858

The deal:
HKD200ish for dinner + a drink.  Unfussy, straight forward pub food at a decent price point.  Owner hangs around and seems genuinely interested in his customers having a good time.  Note that the menu claims brunch starts from 12ish, which in my mind, is really a bit more lunchish.  The burgers are so good and they even do it American style (ie. they ask how you want them cooked – rather than assuming well done). I always ask them to hold the bun on my burger and they assume that means I want salad instead of chips, but I’m just like that fat guy who orders cakes and asks to hold the cream and I always resolutely reply ‘hells no, giddy up on the fried taters’. Stones’ fries are just so good though. Overall, solid pub performer with no wank or pretentiousness. A+++ would buy from again.

The verdict:
FUCK YEAH.

Where:
Amber Dining

15 Queen’s Road, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental
Central, Hong Kong

Phone number:
+852 2132 0066

The deal:
HKD1688 + 10% per person for the 8 course degustation – 2 Michelin stars, on point service and probably the best meal I’ve had ever.  Globally.  There was almost a service meltdown when they realised that they’d given us a mother of pearl fork to eat a potato course (because we switched one sea urchin course out for something else).  My husband gets a bit emotional when he thinks about the cheese trolley and the Roquefort. This place will blow your motherfucken mind.

Verdict: 
FUCK YEAH.  ALL THE MOTHERFUCKEN FUCK YEAHS.  EVER.

Where:
The Parlour, Hullett House
1881 Heritage  2A Canton Road,
Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

Phone number:
+852 2988 0000

The deal:
HKD600 per person – seafood/appetiser/dessert buffet + main + fuck yeah, free flow Veuve Clicquot champagne

Verdict: 
FUCK YEAH
