Yat Tung Heen: Classic Cantonese 

Chinese cuisine is a popular choice to please the elders during festive family feasts.

Its menu spans several categories of Cantonese cuisine, from dim sum to seafood and stir-fries.

The culinary team has won multiple prizes in cooking competitions and earned a loyal following for its signature dishes such as the Honey-glazed Barbecue Pork, Braised Sea Prawns with Onion and Rice Vermicelli in Claypot, Tiger Prawn Two Ways, as well as Pan-fried Chicken with Ginger and Mandarin Peel. Interior-wise, besides the modern Chinese ambience, the restaurant's dining tables are widely spaced apart for maximum comfort.

Hugo’s: Traditional European

The history of MICHELIN Plate-recognised Hugo’s dates all the way back to 1969. Initially situated at the old Hyatt hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, the restaurant took a hiatus after the hotel’s closure but it reopened in 2009 at its current address in the K11 Art Mall, not far from its former location. The restaurant specialises in traditional European fare, as its antique silver cutlery and 1960s dining carts clearly indicate. Armours, spears, shields, antique chandeliers, and the original wooden door preserved from its old location all contribute to the quaint environment.

The restaurant imports ingredients from Europe for its signature dishes, highlights of which include the Dover Sole Meunière, Escargot à la Bourguignonne, Steak Tartare and Steak au Poivre. The main dining area has ample seating but there is also a VIP dining room for more than a dozen people for large groups that prefer privacy.

Mexican bar-restaurant Coyote in Wan Chai has been in business for years, and still maintains an impressive flow of customers every night. The cowboy-themed interiors and dartboard and kaleidoscopic light fittings keep the mood social and festive. The restaurant is spread across two levels, and the upper floor is able to host a few dozen people.

Drinks are the forte of the joint. Diners can pick between the special cocktails, non-alcoholic concoctions like Mexican mango slush, and all kinds of beer to pair with Mexican dishes such as burritos and guacamole with tortilla chips served in large portions designed for sharing. In the evenings, live musicians playing upbeat tunes to liven up the atmosphere.
