That being said, here’s where to tuck into new restaurants in Hong Kong in 2020 – the August edition.
New restaurants in Hong Kong 2020 – September
Soil to Soul
Adopting a farm-to-table principle, this contemporary Korean restaurant presents temple-style cuisine with the freshest ingredients. Whether it is their Ginseng Salad, Turnip Dumplings or Mushroom Terrine, the executive chef prepares food with the goal to nourish the diner’s soul and body. If you feel like trying a little bit of everything, opt for the omakase 8-10 course menus which have to be ordered a day before. In addition, the restaurant offers both open seatings and VIP rooms with spectacular ocean views.

The Daily Tot
Serving only the finest rum, cocktails and spirits, The Daily Tot makes you feel like you’re in Havana. Sitting on the corner of Peel Street and Hollywood Road, the bar is managed by award-winning bartenders and passionate rum lovers, and is helmed by Gerry Olino who has worked at some of HK’s finest establishments, including Lobster Bar at Island Shangri-La. Every day during happy hours (5-8 pm), you can try over 50 types of alcohol starting from $45. The Daily Tot also serves small bites like a selection of skewers, cheese platters and coconut rum cake.

Fat Chad’s prides itself on making fresh sandwiches with natural ingredients. Serving with a grab-and-go concept, the tiny restaurant provides eight sandwiches with different fillings, such as garlicky baby shrimp, beetroot falafel and chicken breast. On top of snacks and desserts, you can grab a beverage from the varied list of wines and beers. We have a feeling this is going to become one of the best restaurants in Sai Ying Pun pretty quickly.
