Japanese Re-Interpreted: Modern Japanese Kappo-style restaurant KONA sits at the crossroad behind the Lin Fa Kung street in the quaint and charming Tai Hang district.
Look & Feel: Inspired by Japanese interiors, KONA adopts a minimalist and elegant design concept with a hint of zen — think wood and stone, simplistic lines and cool-toned palette compliment.
On the Menu: KONA offers an à la carte menu that includes gems like the Sea Urchin, where chef Yip Chun Ki pairs it with a rich lobster broth and blends it with agar to transform it into a half-transparent, semi-solid state. Another must-try is the Monaka Wafer, stuffed with foie gras and marinated in Portuguese white wine and brandy.
A more casual signature is the deep-fried chicken wings seasoned with Japanese salt and pepper.
Meet the Chef: KONA chef Yip Chun Ki, a passionate herb and spice collector with over 25 years of culinary experience, uses high-quality seasonal ingredients and seasoning to elevate the tasting notes of each ingredient.
Great For: Fancy evenings out, date night.
