Now that gathering restrictions have loosen up and summer is upon us, we are dying to eat out and have a cocktail or two (or five, who’s counting?) We’ve summed up some of our all time faves and new restaurants that are on our radar to try this summer. Read now to see our list and what to wear to these scrumptious AND Instagrammable spots! 

 

The Aubrey ($$$$)

Mandarin Oriental’s latest dining spot, The Aubrey is created to deliver “an eccentric Japanese izakaya experience”: phenomenal east-meets-west interior and not to mention the panoramic views of  Victoria Harbour at night; its extensive menu that ranges from sushi, sashimi and tempura to the more fragrant and the less familiar Japanese staple — robata. Expect unique and in-season cocktails that rotates throughout the year or some bubbly with oysters on the side. 

 

What to wear:

A Michael by Michael Kors jumpsuit and a matching it bag ‘Palm’ by Staud.

 

 

Grain of Salt ($$)

The perfect child of nutritious meal and east-west fusion food, Grain of Salt is Hong Kong’s first dietician-operated cafe. And wait, that’s not just it. It is also a community-driven concept that functions as a holistic wellness hub — climb a few stairs and you’re in the professional nutrition counselling section of the complex. Vegans and pescatarian, this is your new spot! 

 

What to wear:

A casual ensemble of a tube top by Vivienne Tam, flared jeans by Victoria, by Victoria Beckham and a touch of sunshine (bucket bag) from Simone Miller

 

 

Sushi Saito ($$$$)

For our fine-dining and theatre lovers, you have most probably heard of this two-Michelin-stars Omakase destination. Visiting an Omakase restaurant is a vote of confidence for the chef and the establishment: chefs are allow to choose orders for their clients according to the very best and fresh ingredients they can have daily and not to mention exercise their creativity in their menus. Step into Sushi Saito for one of the best Edomae-style sushi you can have in Hong Kong and perhaps in the whole wide world. This cosy restaurant only seats 16 people, do book a reservation in advance if you want a visit! 

 

What to wear: 

A minimalistic and striking Balenciaga dress to match with the prototypical zen environment of an Omakase restaurant, a white Peekaboo by Fendi and a pair of comfy combat boots by Both for an edgy look.  

 

 

Holt’s Cafe ($$$)

One of Rosewood’s popular high-tea and dinning spots, Holt’s Cafe provides an upscale and contemporary take on Hong Kong’s traditional Cha Chaan Teng culture with homey, comforting local and international cuisine in a stylish parlour. For those of you who are not sure what a Cha Chaan Teng is, it’s a food culture that sprang up in the post-war era or the 50s and 60s which made “western food” available and affordable for the rising lower class. Hallmark Cha Chaan Teng food includes the famous and unmissable Hong-Kong-style milk tea, pinapple buns and egg tarts. 

 

What to wear:

A blue dress by Guy Laroche with silhouette that reminds you of the 80s, a tiny Bottega Veneta pouch and a pair of Saint Laurent stilettos
