The Best Of Hong Kong
Lifestyle News
By The Loop HK Staff | July 30th, 2020

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, most restaurants are now limiting or full-on cutting their dine-in options. Meanwhile, the rest of us are (hopefully) being socially responsible and staying at home. But, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your fix of good food! Most restaurants have now transformed their offerings to offer takeaways and deliveries in Hong Kong so you can enjoy delicious meals and your favorite foods in the comfort of your own home! Here are some of our top picks – now go ahead and order and show your support for our local F&B scene!

[Updated July 2020]


The St. Regis Hong Kong

This swanky Wanchai hotel is home to no less than two Michelin-starred restaurants – the French-forward L’Envol and the elegant Cantonese Rùn, and while you can’t get takeaways from these two renowned restaurants, you can certainly order an equally decadent meal by Executive Chef Vincent Leroux who oversees The Drawing Room. The exclusive takeaway menu features salads aplenty – Black Angus Tenderloin Papaya? Boston Lobster Tail Caesar? Sign us up! – but you’ll also find pasta mains (tagliagelle with mushroom and truffle, rigatoni with parmesan, bacon, eggs, and arugula) and lavish sandwiches like a Wagyu Beef Burger and Boston Lobster Roll (served with fries, natch).

Need something to wash it all down? The St. Regis Bar is offering seven takeaway cocktail options – including classes like Negronis and Manhattans and creative takes such as the WEPA! (Jameson whiskey, Bacardi 8 years, banana, toasted allspice, clarified milk) and Hung Shing Ye (Vodka Beluga Nobel, milk-washed coconut, spice mix, St. Regis Vetiver essence). If you’re looking to spruce up the home bar, you can even get bespoke bottles of spirits by Distillerie de Paris, including gin, flavored vodka, rum, and brandy.

Order by 6pm for same-day service; spend over $600 for complimentary delivery to Sheung Wan, Central, Admiralty, Wanchai, and Causeway Bay. Guests can contact The Drawing Room on +852 2138 6800 or email srhk.drawingroom.bar@stregis.com


The Peninsula Hong Kong

This grande dame hotel is known for its stellar culinary offerings and now, you can enjoy its gastronomic delights in the comfort of your own home! Whether you’re after award-winning Cantonese from Michelin-starred Spring Moon, decadent Western fare, or the classic afternoon tea, you can get it all! The Peninsula Fare at Home offer is available between 10am and 9pm – simply call ahead, place your order, then pick it up when you’re ready. Everything is served in biodegradeable packaging, and if you bring your own bag, you’ll get a $20 discount off your bill!


The Langham Hong Kong

If you’re looking for a serious meal with a side of solid drinks, look no further. This luxury hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui is now offering deliveries from its much-lauded restaurants. Feast on New York-style sandwiches, burgers and ribs from Main St. Deli; order up the signature seafood and meat platter from Bostonian Seafood & Grill; or enjoy a moveable feast of global delicacies like Hainanese Chicken Rice and grilled tortilla wraps from The Food Gallery. Michelin-starred T’ang Court is even offering a 20% discount on its award-winning Cantonese cuisine if you pick up your order yourself.


Meraki 

The team behind BEDU, Uma Nota, and Mama Always Said are now offering great-value lunches and delicious dinners for delivery and takeaway! For lunch, you can get a set for $115 (BEDU, Uma Nota) with a drink, dessert, and main. The real question is, what will you choose? Will it be spiced chicken and lamb shoulders from BEDU or grilled salmon or burgers and sweet potato fries from Uma Nota? For dinner, you’ll have a much more extensive menu that you can order a la carte to create a meal to your exact specifications. Did we mention there are also options to add on heavenly cookies and wine?


Cornerstone

Shane Osbourne, the Michelin-starred chef who took a turn on Netflix’s wildly popular reality cooking competition “The Final Table,” announced last week that his two Hong Kong restaurants will close temporarily, but that takeaway menus would be available. Expect approachable three-course menus from Cornerstone. Osbourne’s pushing plant-based dishes that’ll nourish you from the inside out. Simply place your order and tell them what time you want to pick it up.

Cornerstone is partnering with exclusive food distributor Waves Pacific to offer a special takeaway of fresh goodies, including 300g Ōra King Salmon fillet; 300g Rangers Valley Wagyu Bavette; 2 butterflied Brisbane Valley Jumbo Quail; 10 Japanese Taiyouran eggs; 2 large cans of Peroni, all for $500! Plus, the pack will come with recipe cards from Shane himself to show you how to recreate the Cornerstone Steak Sandwich, jumbo quail, or salmon dishes in your own home.


Taquiero Super Macho tacos for delivery in Hong Kong

Black Sheep Restaurants

You probably already know that Black Sheep has its own delivery services, including Uncle Desi Food & Sons (for delicious Indian) and Butter (for decadent sweet treats). But its main app, GO, allows you to get meals delivered from almost all of the company’s restaurants. Whether you want well-seasoned Lebanese from Maison Libanaise, flavorsome tacos from Taqueria Super Macho, or hoppers from Hotal Colombo, you’ll find it all here, along with GO-exclusive items like grilled steak and cheese burritos.

But you’ll want to get in quick for their exclusive A Feast for our Family ($2,500 for two people). Created by chef Daniel Calvert of Michelin-starred Belon, this is a one-day-only delivery where you can enjoy the chef’s signature whole roasted “three yellow” chicken with French-style peas, homemade bread, millefeuilles, and a bottle of specially-selected wine at home. Proceeds from the sale of these meals will go to back-of-house staff in the company’s restaurants who need support during this tough time, so you’ll be supporting the local community while enjoying your decadent feast. Simply email delivery@blacksheeprestaurants.com by April 2 to place your order.


sip song now offers deliveries in Hong Kong

Limewood & Sip Song & Mott 32

Both of Maximal Concept’s Repulse Bay eateries are offering their menus for delivery (on Foodpanda) or takeaway. So, if you’re in the mood for easy, breezy, Californian-style dishes or tradition-bending Thai plates, you’re all set.

Limewood is also offering an exclusive “Brickhouse on the Beach” menu for dine-in or takeaway out of Limehouse! It brings ceviches, tacos, and Coconut Tres Leche Cake to Repulse Bay for dessert.

Maximal Concept’s flagship Cantonese restaurant, Mott 32, is also jumping on the takeaway train. The lunch-time Bento Boxes are a thoroughly indulgent mid-day treat, but for dinner, you can also order their lavish Banquet Sets and a la carte menu items. The best part? The restaurant is now on Deliveroo, so the grub can be delivered straight to your door! Plus, if you order over HK$1,000 of food before August 31, you’ll also get a complimentary bottle of Rioja wine to celebrate!


Bain Marie

This new zero-waste delivery concept will deliver sustainable home-cooked treats so you can eat well without worrying too much about your environmental impact. Weekly menus are available online, and dishes are made – as far as possible – from locally-sourced ingredients. A starter, main, and dessert is available each day, and you can pick and choose whatever you want (their two- and three-course menus are surprisingly reasonable). Just order before 5pm for next-day deliveries. The best part? All your food comes in recyclable glass containers that the company will pick up, sterilize, and use again, so there’s no throwing out wasteful containers!


Bayfare Social 

This swish gastro-market concept at the Rosewood Hong Kong is now bringing its dishes straight to your door. Bayfare Social has created an exclusive takeaway/delivery menu that includes a wide range of soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas, coookers – and yes, even wine and beer. They offer free delivery over $1,000 (Kowloon) or $1,500 (HK island). Right now, you have to contact them directly to place your order at 5239-9218 or hongkong.deliverybayfaresocial@rosewoodhotels.com, but they’ll soon be available to order through Deliveroo!


Le Comptoir

This restaurant group, known for its artistic, high-level conceptual restaurants (and somewhat pricy menus), is now offering to deliver food from some of its most popular restaurants so you can enjoy a swish meal at your own dining table. Limited menus from Silencio, Poem, Piqniq, and Djapa are now available for delivery through Deliveroo. All you have to do is decide if you feel like Japanese izakaya-style treats, Balinese flavors, casual nibbles, or Nipo-Brasileiro eats.


Relish

This catering company usually specializes in feeding the masses at events, meeting, parties, and conferences. But, pivoting with the times, they’re now offering exclusive picnic baskets for two so you can have a fun date night at home while social distancing. At $450/person, your basket includes two mains, two sides, one dessert, cold cuts and cheese, and a bottle of wine. They’re even throwing in a puzzle to keep you entertained after you finish your meal! The baskets, throws, and games have all been sourced from local independent businesses, so you’ll be helping them stay afloat, too.

Exclusive for The Loop HK readers, just mention The Loop HK when placing your order and you’ll immediately get a 10% discount!


Le Petit Croissant

If you’re not rushing into work these days, you may as well take advantage by enjoying a lingering breakfast courtesy of Le Petit Croissant. This French-run online bakery will drop off a range of pastries (think croissants, danishes, and beignets), muffins, cookies, and more! Their filled croissants (ham and cheese, tuna salad, salmon, egg truffle) make a lovely treat for lunch, but they have more filling sandwiches and “bento boxes” filled with pasta, fruit, salads, and charcuterie.

Tea WG

If you’re spending all day working from home, you may well need a little pick-me-up in the afternoon. That’s where Tea WG comes in. Order through their website up to three days in advance, and you’ll soon be enjoying an exquisite array of cakes, macarons, and pastries that you can pair with some of the brand’s signature caffeinated brews. The service is takeaway only though, so you’ll need to nip out and pick up your order.

Fini’s & Posto Publico

These two eateries have basically become Italian institutions in Hong Kong. Both offer up a slew of New York-style pizzas, pastas, and snacks that just scream comfort food. Browse their menus on Deliveroo and get ready to feast on loaded 12-inch pizzas, homemade fettuccine fungi, and the signature typhoon shelter crab linguini (the carbonara and arrabiata are nothing to sniff at, either!).

Sometimes, you just need a burger to hit the spot, and where better to get one from than one of Hong Kong’s most famous homegrown burger bars?
