Horse Meat: Part of the revamped House 1881 hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, which sits at the top of the former Marine Police Headquarters, Stable Steak House serves premium steaks and fresh seafood.
Look & Feel: Previously housed in a former police stable — hence the name — Stable Steak House has since moved to the first floor of the hotel, trading rustic, wooded interiors reminiscent of a European chalet for plush seating and an intimate vibe amidst a charming colonial aesthetic.
On the Menu: As you’d expect from the name, meat is the specialty at Stable Steak House. The menu features a selection of premium steaks from all around the world, including A5 Wagyu from Japan, and 30 types of salt for seasoning. Other signatures include beef consommé and USDA prime beef tartare. If meat’s not your thing, a great selection of fresh seafood is available, like Chilean sea bass fish cakes.
Jeng: The Australian rack of lamb ($420 for half, $760 for whole) was delicious and paired well with some of the restaurant’s more unusual salts, such as ginger and matcha, while the 36oz Australian corn-fed tomahawk ($1,380) was perfectly melt-in-your-mouth tender.
Not So Jeng: The caesar salad ($130), cleverly presented with the croutons, anchovies, shaved parmesan and dressing sitting on Romaine lettuce halves, was easy on the eyes, but left less of an impression in the mouth. Perhaps go with the 48 month Iberico ham ($278) for an appetizer instead?
Preat For: Romantic dinners for two or intimate group catch ups.
FYI: The Stable Bar has Hong Kong’s largest selection of gin, along with artisanal and rare spirits, and craft cocktails, all served in a small hunting lodge-style space.
