Hong Kong: Wining & Dining in Style

Hong Kong is among the culinary capitals of Asia, helping to fuel a wine boom in China that could end up being unparalleled.

One of the stylish destinations in Hong Kong is The Excelsior. It’s the largest hotel on the island, and in addition to a steady lineup of live entertainment, it offers an impressive portfolio of restaurants and bars featuring both Chinese and international cuisine.

Some Chinese fare can be challenging to pair with wine, so it’s no surprise that the Yee Tung Heen restaurant on the property’s second floor is home not to a wine bar, but rather to a tea counter. There, guests may choose from a wide selection of premium teas brought in from all over China.

As for the restaurant’s menu, it perfectly illustrates Executive Chef Ho Wah’s sophisticated techniques in crafting authentic Cantonese cuisine, featuring the best of seasonal specialties. And locals will tell you that Chef Ho’s lunchtime dim sum creations are not to be missed.

Little wonder that Yee Tung Heen received several accolades in the “Best of the Best Culinary Awards” organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

Once you’ve savored the superior “local” cuisine, make time for another meal at Cammino, where you can enjoy excellent wines paired with authentic Italian fare. The setting is classy, with dark wood paneling and warm furnishings.

For those seeking the “wow” factor, head to the top of The Excelsior, where ToTT’s and Roof Terrace—34 floors up—offer indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) dining, and a menu designed for discerning gourmands.

With the impressive menu, well-selected wine list, live music and awe-inspiring views of Victoria Harbor, ToTT’s and Roof Terrace offer a stylish culinary experience that’s tough to beat.
