Since opening in 1928, Jimmy’s Kitchen has seen Hong Kong at its best and worst. This bastion of the local food scene has seen the city through the Second World War, multiple financial crises, and SARS. Known for its unique blend of western and Asian dishes, the restaurant’s menu has seen few changes over the decades. To this day, diners can expect hearty comfort food like steak, beef stroganoff, fried rice, and Indian curries.
