Got Beef: Originally established in Japan back in 1935, the fabled Hiyama restaurant — which has been awarded one Michelin star in Tokyo for nine years straight — has opened up shop in Hong Kong. The restaurant specializes in sukiyaki: meat that’s slowly cooked on the table before the diners. Hiyama is especially lauded for its selections of superior beef cuts.
Look & Feel: A bright and airy space inspired by traditional Japanese decor, with plenty of greenery as well as views of the Victoria Harbour (de rigueur for restaurants located at Harbour City).
On the Menu: Expect the likes of A5 Kuroge wagyu ribeye served in sukiyaki broth, a famed dish from Hiyama. There’s also plenty of traditional Japanese fare, like Hokkaido sea urchin and sashimi rice ($368); and favorites with a twist, like Wagyu beef dumplings ($68). There are set menus available, too.
Great For: A taste of one of Tokyo’s finest restaurants without having to travel there (because who knows when we’ll be able to?).
