8 Best Restaurants in Sheung Wan

Where to Eat in Sheung Wan

Sheung Wan has an incredible range of small, hard-to-find restaurants that draw people in from all over Hong Kong. This district used to be the western edge of the MTR Underground line, but since the extension along the coast all the way to Kennedy Town in 2015, more and more cool new restaurants have relocated to the area to the west of Sheung Wan.

When compared to popular dining spots in other downtown districts, Sheung Wan’s best restaurants are generally those with more authentic recipes, cheaper prices and a vibe more in touch with the past. Here we have rounded up where to eat in Sheung Wan, with some genuine Cantonese restaurants where you will be sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with old uncles, as well as some of the most fashionable joints in the city offering a variety of pan-Asian cuisines.

    Lin Heung Kui

    Lin Heung Kui

    Lin Heung Kui is certainly one of the best Cantonese restaurants in Sheung Wan. The dim sum and tea lunch options are very popular at lunch (almost as popular as its more famous sister restaurant, Lin Heung Tea House), but unlike its more famous sibling, this restaurant also offers a classic dinner menu. The service couldn’t be described as diligent but this adds to the experience. Recommended dishes include poached chicken, tofu in soy sauce and the traditionally prepared ‘eight treasures duck’, which is the whole bird stuffed with specially chosen ingredients.

    • Address: Des Voeux Rd Central, Sheung Wan
    • Tel: +856 2156 9328

    208 Duecento Otto

    208 Duecento Otto

    With a downstairs bar and a cosy yet cool upstairs bistro, 208 Duecento Otto has been a mainstay on the Shueng Wan dining scene for many years. The Neapolitan pizzas are fantastic here, with a range of classic and signature recipes, as are the intriguing appetisers and light bites. Cured meats and Italian cheeses are prominent, although they serve a roasted lamb rack or slow-braised ossobucco if you want a complete Italian dining experience. Prices are on the high side but are justified. Located on Hollywood Road in the centre of SoHo.

    Foxtail & Broomcorn

    Foxtail & Broomcorn

    As always in Hong Kong, what’s cool is always changing and Foxtail & Broomcorn isn’t the same hipster hangout it once was – which we think is great! You can still enjoy pan-Asian noodle dishes, the deliciously tender beef short rib or incredibly fresh seafood toppings without the waiting times which we faced when this cool restaurant first opened. All dishes are MSG-free and the décor is minimal and modernist.
