I’m hungry for…
Honky Tonks Tavern
Despite its cheeky name, Honky Tonks Tavern delivers a serious attitude when it comes to food. Shady Acres’ playful sister’s easygoing, Southern-inspired menu is easily fit for feasts at home. On the list: hot fried chicken (from HK$75), salads (where sneaky garlic butter coated tater tots also sits) and pizzas (HK$110); try the ‘White Trash’ shredded chicken, bacon, ranch and Dorito dust; or ‘Bee Sting,’ with pesto, funky gorgonzola, salami and spicy honey. A handful of cocktails and bottles from its Australian natural wine programme are also available for you to take home.

Mother of Pizzas
At the end of a day when you just can’t even anymore, as the kids say, the ramped up pies from Mother of Pizzas will be a balm to the soul. Blending a Neopolitan base — risen for 48 hours and rapidly fired in a 800 degree oven — with no-holds-barred New York-style toppings, the flavour-packed slices will be a satisfying ingredient to your evening plans. Choose from deliciously (and generously) packed slices including Summer of Love 1967 (HK$228), controversially topped with pineapple and drizzled with chilli-infused honey, Holland Spicy (HK$228), furiously hot slices balanced out by mozzarella and grilled chicken and the photo-worthy Canadian (HK$228), fanned out with thinly sliced and lightly crispy portobello mushrooms.

Procuring a seat at the Four Seasons Hong Kong’s Sushi Saito is no easy task, but luckily for those who haven’t yet experienced chef Kenichi Fujimoto’s culinary craft will finally get their moment (and bragging rights) with a not-so-humble bento box from the two-Michelin-starred sushi bar. Like a booking, the elusive bentos come in limited quantities; only 30 are assembled each day and are only available while evening dining restrictions remains. Pick from a choice of two: the Futomaki (HK$680) rolls, filled with an assortment of kanpyo (pickled gourd), tamago, kurumaebi (Japanese tiger prawn), anago (sea eel) and morokyuri (pickled cucumber); or the hefty Barachirashi (HK$980), not your typical sashimi rice bowl with a cubed blanket of akami (lean tuna), tako (octopus), awabi (abalone) and uni atop warm, vinegary rice. The latest addition is a seasonal saba roll (HK$500).
Order details: The Futomaki and Barachirashi are available for pre-order while stock lasts and can be picked up from 12- 6pm daily.

In traditional Chinese cuisine, the cooler months are often marked by nourishing ingredients and heartwarming casseroles; two instances brought together in China Tang Landmark’s take on the classic Cantonese Winter Solstice dish: Poon choi (HK$1,988 for four, HK$2,933 for six), or ‘pan dish,’ designed to bring families together with its convivial way of sharing food (though this year, communal chopsticks are likely at the ready to stay safely distanced). Carefully stacked and layered together with 18 lavish ingredients, the Prosperity Year of the Ox poon choi is brimming with precious dried seafood such as abalone, fish maw and sea cucumber for a truly indulgent meal to spend time with family this winter — all the way through to Chinese New Year.
