Curious about the most delicious new offerings in Hong Kong? Every week we round up the best New Eats in the city, whether it’s new menus, limited-time dishes, seasonal plates or more.
If you’re in the mood for something decadent and delightful (and let’s be real, when aren’t we?), this week’s new eats will have you positively salivating. Sate your appetite for comfort cuisine and fine dining alike with classic Parisian steak frites at District 8, Chinese delicacies at Yè Shanghai’s new K11 Musea opening and the new discovery menu at Amber.
Steak Frites at District 8
As part of the Woolly Pig group, District 8 has recently opened its doors atop Elements Mall in Civic Square to welcome diners into its casual Parisian bistro. With both indoor and al fresco seating, as well as a standalone cocktail bar, District 8 is set to become one of Kowloon’s top casual eateries for shoppers and business diners alike. Touted for its all-day dining menu of French classics and comfort foods, the first thing to try would be the eatery’s steak frites — signature premium cuts of steak with fries, all served with Café de Paris sauce and sweet charred onions. Pair this with their excellent wine by the glass programme or a cocktail — carnivores will love the ‘Beef It,’ which marries Wagyu beef fat-washed bourbon with smoky whisky, topping it off with burnt honey syrup, bitters and garnished with house-made Wagyu jerky.

New Dim Sum Menu at Yè Shanghai
Elite Concepts’ one-Michelin-starred Yè Shanghai — with its branches across Hong Kong, Taiwan and Shanghai — should be a familiar name for gourmands. Celebrating its new branch opening at K11 Musea, it’s offering a brand new dim sum menu alongside innovative à la carte signatures. The crab roe meat bun in particular, a traditional Chinese bun filled with pork and fresh Shanghai hairy crab, is a must-try.
Five-course Amber Discovery Menu
Amber at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental has just launched an unmissable new dinner option, the Amber Discovery menu. Ideal for diners who enjoy early or later dining, the five-course dinner menu (HK$1,498 including a glass of champagne) showcases some of chef Richard Ekkebus’ newest innovations. Highlights include the Hokkaido scallop or a spring lamb loin garnished with gunpowder and peppermint (pictured above). The Amber Discovery menu will be available from Sundays to Thursdays, with two seating from 6–6:45pm or 8:15–8:45pm.
