Grand Hyatt Steakhouse’s First Pompous Burgers
There’s just something about burgers that make it our favorite comfort food. And how lucky are we to have stumbled upon Grand Hyatt Steakhouse’s first pompous burgers. It’s exclusive for two months only and set to gather a crowd of meat lovers in the city.
The massive burger contains a wagyu beef patty, truffle sauce, foie gras, aged Comte in a truffle bun. The beef patty is made of 100% Australian M7 grade wagyu from a combination of three cuts, brisket, short rib, and chuck, thereby creating the perfect flavor and texture. But, there’s more to this meal as it comes with French fries and truffle mayo sealing it as a heaven-made combo. The exclusive pompous burger promotion will be available from now until the end of February.

Samsen Sheung Wan
We love finding new dining spots in Hong Kong. The city is teeming with international cuisine from all over the globe. However, there’s something about Thai food that stays close to our hearts. Samsen Sheung Wan is sort of a continuation of chef Adam Cliff and Bella Kong’s culinary adventure in the city exploring the bold flavors of traditional Thai street eats.
Discover the delicious goodness of khao soi, the highly sought after curried beef with fresh egg noodles, in the starring role alongside freshly made roti that’s best enjoyed dipped in a bowl of steaming Thai curry. The enticing menu is filled with dishes that certainly pack a punch. The authentic Thai street food shophouse is a reflection of nostalgic vintage Thailand and definitely deserves a visit this month.

Ruinart Afternoon Tea and Artful Delights at Statement
If there’s anything we learned from the month of January, it’s to stop and smell and the roses. We certainly did all that with a stop at the contemporary British restaurant Statement and sampled their afternoon tea, in an exclusive partnership with RuinartChampagne. With the overwhelming news on TV and the internet, sit down for a cuppa and embrace three tiers of traditional delicacies–each paying tribute to English heritage and the art of afternoon tea. Situated in one of Hong Kong’s most historical dining rooms, guests can unwind at the alfresco area on the original colonial-style outdoor verandah, overlooking the courtyard of Tai Kwun.
Indulge in a selection of homemade scones and delicious treats. Accompanying the set is an assortment of fine English teas aptly paying homage to traditional British flavors. Guests can enjoy afternoon tea every day from 3:00pm to 5:00pm inside the Statement’s historic dining room. It is priced at HKD $288 per person or HK$388 per person with bubbles to pair.

The Pizza Project
If there’s probably one food that rules the world, that’s pizza! And what better way to have this delicious food than at The Pizza Project. Located at Peel Street in the Central business district, this cozy eatery as their name suggests specializes in pizza. Focusing on quality, style and the heartwarming goodness of a dish, this restaurant quickly warmed up our hearts and bellies. It’s also probably because all wines are priced equally and served in three formats–HKD $300 per bottle, HKD $220 per carafe and HKD $70 per glass–to ensure that guests forget about the price, and focus on the wine that they would like to enjoy. Selections on the menu’s Le Pizze section range from iconic styles such as the vegetarian margherita priced at HKD $70 and the Carbonara priced at HKD $120. It’s topped with pancetta, quail eggs, tomato sauce and fior di latte. Having a plate of pizza and a glass of wine at the end of the day is pure perfection.
