Tai Ping Shan
206 Hollywood Rd., Tai Ping Shan
Chachawan serves up Thai food in a modern-yet-rustic, super-cool space, with colorful murals on the walls that give it an elevated street-art vibe, and an open kitchen behind the bar. Chef Adam Lee Cliff and restaurateur Yenn Wong run this hotspot for northeastern-Thailand-inspired Isaan cuisine—a rarity compared to the usual/ubiquitous Thai fare in HK. Their dishes are vetted to be authentic, meaning they do not hold back on spice; be sure to make a special request for milder seasoning if breathing fire isn’t your jam.
72 Po Hing Fong, Tai Ping Shan
Nestled in the hipster-bait Sheung Wan neighborhood, this restaurant serves up a unique mélange of French and Japanese cuisine. The outdoor seating is more casual and self-serve—get a table indoors for the full experience. Open for breakfast, afternoon tea, and lunch, their savory sandwiches are delicious—the steak sandwich and B.E.L.T. are popular go-tos—each of which comes on fluffy, springy bread, fresh-baked hot out of the oven next door at their sister spot, incredible Japanese/French hybrid bakery Po’s Atelier. Better yet: Everything is made with fresh, in-season ingredients.
