Dai Pai Dong Digs: Serving contemporary Cantonese food in a classy environment, Kasa touched down in Wan Chai the summer of 2015, and now has a Central branch on Wellington Street.
Look & Feel: Striking a balance between new and old, classic and contemporary, Kasa Wan Chai features a quaint, 52-seat space with heritage accents woven throughout the design. The Chinese restaurant’s metal chairs look just like what you’d find at open-air dai pai dong stalls and the windows resemble 19th-century tong laus.
On the Menu: Homey Cantonese food and dai pai dong staples mingle with international flavors. There are Scotch eggs alongside Shanghainese braised beef short ribs and even Arancini rice balls stuffed with Hong Kong-style claypot rice and preserved Chinese sausages.
Great For: Quick lunches, nostalgic bites, big groups.
FYI: They even have salted lemon Sprite!
