Sourdough Galore: Bread lovers can savor in Sour Dough glory at this new artisan deli by Swiss pastry chef Gérard Dubois (behind Passion). Opening in Wan Chai, the restaurant and bakery specializes in sourdough starters, flaky pastries and hearty sandwiches.
Look & Feel: Its all-green façade creates a welcoming atmosphere upon arrival. Plus, the open, airy floor to ceiling windows lend an al-fresco appeal so you can enjoy your meal with a breezy bit of fresh air.
On The Menu: The cafe serves three main types of food: bread and baked goods, sandwiches and salads. Sour Dough’s healthy recipes make it a one-stop space for homemade delicacies. All the breads are made using the most traditional methods inspired by ancient Egypt. The sour dough croissant (HK$23) is a crispy, fresh specialty, while the caramelized baby pear feuilletine basket (HK$30) is perfect for a sweet tooth craving. If you don’t feel like sourdough, you can also grab one of the white, dark rye or multigrain loaves made on site.
For lunch, you can try one of Sour Dough’s sandwiches for something a little heftier. The chicken tikka (HK$58) is an immediate favorite, using roast chicken with greek yogurt and apricot chutney – on a delicious focaccia bread. Meanwhile, the Cubano (HK$62) explores Caribbean spices with tender pulled pork and Swiss cheese on sourdough ciabatta. We love the sound of the pastrami sauerkraut (HK$67) on warm rye sourdough. Of course, there are bountiful vegan options too, from the caponata and tofu (HK$58) to the grilled garden veggies sandwich (HK$58).
Sour Dough makes salads fun, with its rotating range of scrumptious variations. Colorful and full of flavor, you can’t miss the Sour Dough garden salad which is packed with croutons, leafy greens and quinoa. Meanwhile, the roast beetroot and pumpkin salad mixes the best of spices and roast veggies. You can also add on options to make your salad the way you like it best.
If you’re dining in, the veggie sour dough French toast (HK$95) is a must-try. Plus, the Mediterranean hot breakfast (HK$108) is a twist on Shakshuka worth sharing with a pal for your morning meal.
Great For: Healthy, hearty lunch or breakfast.
FYI: Sour Dough is also dog friendly, so you can bring your pooch along with you.
