Day 1:

If you have an important breakfast meeting try The Upperhouse in Admiralty.  Located on the 49th floor of the swanky boutique hotel, this white table clothed restaurant has views of the harbour to die for with a menu to match.  There were so many delicious options, it was hard to decide, especially if you have a sweet tooth.

For a casual catch up lunch with the girls you cannot go past Classified in Wanchai.  It has an easy menu with something for everyone, plus great coffee.  After lunch take a stroll around the narrow streets and discover new independent boutiques and bars.

For dinner with Friends try Yardbird. This bar/restaurant oozes cool. From its trendy staff who not only look the part, they also know their product inside out, to the funky beats played in the background while you eat.  Enjoy a cocktail, while tasting some of the most delicious Japanese/Korean share plates you will ever come across.  A must have is their KFC (Korean Fried Cauliflower).

Day 2:

Stroll to brunch at the airy café/restaurant Oolaa.  Order yourself a Bloody Mary, you will not be disappointment.  The menu is extensive with breakfast and lunch options running all day.  Sit by the street in the open air and enjoy your food.

If you’re in Hong Kong with your partner, then you cannot go past Blue Butcher on Hollywood Road, Central District. Go upstairs and you will discover a New York styled restaurant with a long open kitchen, a meat hanging area, lounges and heavy wooden tables to dine at.  The food is meaty (perfect excuse to order a bottle of red), yet delicious and most importantly, filling.  You will not leave this place hungry.

Day 3

A little under the weather from the previous night’s shenanigans and need a quick fix before you head to the airport? Try Wagyu on Wyndham Street. Here you will get that much needed hangover cure of eggs and bacon.  They even have a breakfast pizza and it’s huge!
