Binge Hong Kong - Suzie, Sake and The Paddle

If you’re into the latest flavours, robatayaki is getting pretty popular over in jolly ole Hong Kong. So if you’re stopping by the city, pop in and see what the excitement is all about. One of the newest additions is busy suzie, and it promises to be an eyeful.

Housed in Heritage 1881, a former lighthouse and marine police headquarters in Tsim Sha Tsui, busy suzie – created by pedigree designers who can flaunt names like Philippe Starck and Christian Liaigre with legit – promises to be a stylish, contemporary venue for great eating and extensive drinking in mod Japanese style. Don’t expect a serious brooding interior though – with waiters and chefs yelling at each other, it’s probably going to sound more like a cha chan tang.

Fresh ingredients are flown in daily from Japan and Chef Tonoyama Mitsuo churns out signature yummies like Miyazaki A5 Beef Sirloin Skewers, Chicken Skewers from Yamaguchi as well as fresh seafood items such as the unique Kinki Fish (pics above). The sake list here is apparently one of the best in town, so lots of good chin-chins to go round.

What’s robatayaki? If you don’t quite know, here’s the deal: it started off waay back in Sendai, northeastern Japan, as beachside eateries where fishermen cooked their catch over an open fire using an oar. Hence the wooden paddle-bearing chefs you see at the robata grill these days. Ah – serendipity!
