Hong Kong

8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA
With delicious outposts in Italy, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, Chef Umberto Bombana has garnered a loyal foodie following. His Hong Kong restaurant is designed to recreate the feeling of a forest, while his cuisine reflects his Italian upbringing. As the “King of White Truffles,” his decadent style has earned 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA the honor of being first and only three Michelin-starred Italian restaurant outside of Italy.

The Chairman
This Cantonese restaurant was one of the first in the city to offer fresh, local ingredients in a modern setting. After 10 years in business, The Chairman still has a loyal following that loves its classic cuisine. The restaurant is packed every night – and for good reason – the food is so intoxicating that diners barely look up from their meal once it arrives. The locally sourced ingredients, upscale atmosphere, and dedication to traditional Cantonese flavors makes The Chairman a must.

Twenty Six by Liberty
Chef Chris Keung prepares handcrafted dishes right in front for his diners. However, with only 26 seats at the restaurant’s table, a few lucky guests enjoy the nightly show. The eight-course tasting menu of French fare can be paired with wine, and the dishes surprise diners with bold presentations, unique flavors, and festive culinary atmosphere.



The Golden Peacock

Clube Militar de Macau
Built as a private military club, the bright pink-and-white structure was reopened as a restaurant in 1995. With its colonial-style décor, Clube Militar de Macau displays old world charm and brings diners to the quieter side of the city. The menu is filled with Portuguese cuisine, including codfish croquettes with black eye bean salad and Portuguese duck rice.

The perfect spot for traditional Macanese dishes, Riquexo is run by a chef who is sometimes referred to as the “Godmother of Macanese cuisine.” The canteen-style restaurant is one of the last spots to find simple Macanese food. Experience traditional dishes like Macau’s national dish, minchi, a mince pork and potato dish served with steamed rice.

The Golden Peacock
A must-visit for all fans of Indian cuisine, The Golden Peacock offers all styles of regional Indian dishes with a modern touch. The restaurant has one of the finest buffets in Macao, with both fantastic curries and Indian chaat (savory snacks), making it a popular lunch hangout. Menu highlights include the butter chicken, lamb biryani, and vegetarian dishes.
