Binge Hong Kong - NEW places to WOW Dad!

So he is a creature of habit .. but then again he did say, "You decide!" when you asked "where to?" for Fathers' Day. Well then, choose because there are a few new and notable places that have recently come to 'be' in Kowloon, all in the bustling Tsim Sha Tsui area.

Billed as 'Hong Kong’s most prestigious new Chinese dining and drinking destination restaurant and bar', Nanhai No. 1 and Eyebar promises to offer great food and an even more spectacular view. Find it in Tsim Sha Tsui’s new iSQUARE mall on the 30th-floor. It has a ‘sea-and-be-seen’ nautical themed dining room, with soaring picture windows, an open grill kitchen, and a sexy rooftop deck called Eyebar where before dinner you must have that exotic fruit cocktail (or lychee martini) under the stars. On the menu which focuses on premium seafood, watch as your lobster is roasted, steamed, sautéed and grilled in front of you in a glass-enclosed seafood barbecue kitchen. Must try dishes are the Braised Garoupa's Fin with Bamboo shoots, Simmered Geoduck with Consomme, Baked Oyster in Sichuan Spicy Sauce, Simmered Tomato with Mixture of Mushrooms, Crispy Shredded Yam and Deep-fried Spareribs Marinated in Nanhai’s Special Sauce.
Nanhai No. 1 and Eyebar are located at 30/F, iSQUARE, 63 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. Reservations at +852 2487 3688.

At One Peking is the recently established flagship of Shanghai’s famous Xiao Nan Guo restaurant designed by renowned Hong Kong interior designer Steve Leung. The restaurant reflects an elegant Chinese Jiang-nan garden with a Chinese-style wooden ceiling, dark-grey stone flooring and simple, yet stylish, wooden furnishings. As you enter the restaurant, walk the traditional Chinese zigzag bridge to the main dining area where seating provides every guest with panoramic city views through huge glass windows. From a small restaurant with a few tables over 20 years ago to what it has become today, a renowned fine-food brand.
Xiao Nan Guo Premier Haute Cuisine de Shanghai is on the 10F, One Peking, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. Reservations at +852 25278899

Not far away at the newly renovated Heritage 1881 (near the Star Ferry, if you are coming over from Hong Kong to Kowloon) is busy suzie, now busier than ever as they have launched a New Lunch Menu which I have been to try and have given a big thumbs up. I vote this great value, presentation and a lovely way to brunch on a lazy Sunday morning. First explore Heritage 1881, the old Marine Police Headquarters which has now become a home and haven to various watch and jewelry retailers and after a wander, you can head for a great value robatayaki lunch with Prime Australian Wagyu beef tenderloin, the freshest seafood and delectably light vegetarian options including Sushi with Soba; Pork Cutlet Donburi; Eel “Kabayaki”; Beef or Chicken Teriyaki and Vegetarian Tempura Set all priced from only HK$98 to HK250+ and served with salad, vegetable sakizuke, Japanese egg custard and fruit. Watch the Robata chefs practice the ancient tradition of using a wooden paddle to pass food items to customers further adding to the fun and theatre of the robata dining experience. Whilst you are there try the cold sake, Yukinobosha Yamahai Honjyozo or the hot Suishin Junmaishu Komenokiwami, both better than the stuff served at regular Japanese restaurants.
busy suzie is at Shop 209, 1881 Heritage, 2A Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon,
