Famous Famiglia

If you asked someone: “Have you ever had pizza?” and they said: “No”, you would be pretty taken aback given that pizza has become one of the most popular foods the world over and in particular in the USA. And you can now get a very authentic fix of this favorite food from Famous Famiglia, an award-wining American pizza chain, which has opened its first outlet in Asia at Hong […]

If you are looking for a sushi hit or other Japanese delights before boarding, you’ll be pleased to know that Itacho Sushi has a restaurant at Hong Kong International Airport (Departures West Hall, Level 6, Terminal 1, Restricted Area). Itacho Sushi is famed for its use of the freshest ingredients, the meticulous cooking skills and the beautiful presentation of each dish. Also, being a vegetarian I love the choice of […]
Ajisen Ramen

July 20, 2015 | 0 Comments

There’s nothing quite like a bowl of sizzling hot Japanese ramen noodle soup! Even more so when you’re a weary traveler in need of sustenance or like me flagging due to working overnight at the airport (argh!). Sure there are so many ramen restaurants in Hong Kong but Ajisen Ramen gets my thumbs up due to its high quality food even for a fast food restaurant. And with over 700 […]
Maxim’s Jade Garden

June 11, 2015 | 0 Comments

I’ve always been a fan of the Maxim’s Group, especially their Jade Garden restaurant…which I didn’t realize has been around for over 40 years. Jade Garden has been my family’s favorite go-to place for “yam cha” for as long as I can remember. But in recent years, due to work commitments I haven’t been eating out with my parents half as much as I would like. So, it was lovely […]
Pak Loh Chiu Chow

Recently before boarding for a business flight I went for a bite in Pak Loh Chiu Chow Restaurant with my boss and a couple of colleagues. Pak Loh Chiu Chow has been around for nearly half a century and specializes in traditional and innovative Chiu Chow cuisine that originates from the east of Guangdong province, China. My boss happens to be of Chiu Chow descent, so Pak Loh Chiu Chow’s […]

If you’re after some authentic French cuisine in a classic Parisian café setting, then look no further than Délifrance. Bringing a little bit of France to Hong Kongers since 1987, Délifrance now has some 30 outlets across Hong Kong, serving classic French sandwiches, pasta, pastries, freshly baked brioche and desserts. You’ll find this Délifrance at Hong Kong International Airport (Level 5, Terminal 1, Non-restricted area and Departures South Concourse, Level […]
Spaghetti House

March 27, 2015 | 0 Comments

There’s no lack of Italian-inspired restaurants at the airport, but Spaghetti House was the family-friendliest one catering to mainstream tastes and preferences. Being part of the chain which has outlets around town, the airport branch – located in the Departure Hall inside the Restricted Area, features the same familiar menu with the rest, which included a la carte items such as pizza, pasta, salad and other main dishes. I was […]
Big Chill

Everyone seems to be in the pursuit of healthiness these days, which of course is the way it should be. And eating healthily needn’t be an effort at the airport with the introduction of Big Chill – the first tossed salad bar at Hong Kong International Airport (Arrivals Meeters & Greeters Hall, Level 5 in T1, Non-Restricted Area) If you’re like me and love a healthy fruit juice but can’t […]
Chen Fu Ji

March 20, 2015 | 0 Comments

As someone who is always out and about at the airport, I always crave for food that reminds me closely of home before my flights. Prior to my recent trip, my colleague and I stopped by Chen Fu Ji for a meal before hopping on the plane. Starting as a humble food stall in Singapore’s Chinatown, Chen Fu Ji has grown into a chain serving traditional Southeast Asian cuisine in […]
The Peak Lookout

March 13, 2015 | 0 Comments

Victoria Peak is definitely a top attraction for any visitor to Hong Kong. The first Peak Lookout restaurant was established at the Peak over 60 years ago! For those that missed out this historical landmark during a visit to the Peak, you can now enjoy its multicultural dishes at the airport! Located at Level 8 in Terminal 1 non-restricted area, the entrance of the restaurant may catch people off guard, […]
Taiwan Beef Noodle

February 12, 2015 | 0 Comments

You know what they say…when you go to an Italian restaurant you don’t necessarily have to eat pizza. Well when going to Taiwan Beef Noodle, a beef soup noodle restaurant at the airport, I decided to put this logic to the test. I was with my friend, killing time, before boarding for our trip to Taipei when he spotted Taiwan Beef Noodle in the departures hall after security near Gate […]
QQ Rice

February 11, 2015 | 0 Comments

When you’re rushing through the airport it’s always great to have a healthy snack option on hand before you board. I have long been a fan of QQ Rice because their rice rolls are not just healthy and delicious, but also very vegetarian-friendly – you can choose from 20 veggie ingredients to make up your own roll, that’s even more than is on offer for the meat eaters! So, I […]
Cafe Deco

January 30, 2015 | 0 Comments

When taking a night flight and time permitting, Café Deco located in Level 7, restricted area, T1 is always my first port of call for a bite before boarding. Free from the hustle and bustle of the departures lounge, it’s a welcome sight with its roomy, wood décor and striking views over the runways. The impressive views are thanks to its large floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and for the romantics out […]
Pizza Express

January 19, 2015 | 0 Comments

I am not a big fan of airplane food, so one of my go-to places at Hong Kong International Airport would be Pizza Express. Their vast open dining area resembles their other branches- with minimalistic design and dim-lighting decorated with a cozy white and blue colour scheme which definitely rings a British vibe. The restaurant has a lounge area that looks over the apron. Watching incoming and outgoing planes is […]
Le Grand Pokka Café

If you fancy a spot of fusion food before boarding then you can’t go wrong with Le Grand Pokka Café, the more high-end offering from the Japanese-style café restaurant chain Pokka Café which has been serving Hongkongers for over twenty years. Le Grand Pokka Café prides itself on serving top class specialty coffees together with a menu offering a wide selection of French, Italian and Japanese fusion cuisine. This one […]
Tsui Wah Restaurant

December 23, 2014 | 0 Comments

Cha chaan teng (tea restaurant) plays a star role in Hong Kong’s unique culinary culture. This type of local no-frills eatery has a menu that caters to Hong Kongers at any time of the day. Tsui Wah Restaurant is without doubt a cha chaan teng legend. First opening its doors in Mong Kok in 1967, it has since grown to become the biggest cha chaan teng restaurant chain in Hong […]
Nosh Cafe & Bar

December 23, 2014 | 0 Comments

So often before heading to the airport, you are rushing and simply don’t have time to munch anything in the city, but then wish that you had when the hunger pangs kick in and you are still waiting to board. Or worse still, you are sitting on the tarmac and the dining trolley won’t be making an appearance for a long time. NOSH Café & Bar is then just what […]
Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao

Queues out the door (yes, even at the airport branch) plus a Michelin Bib Gourmand Restaurant award for six straight years, you know you are at the right place – Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao. Crystal Jade (L5-35, Meeters & Greeters Hall, T1) specializes in authentic Shanghai cuisine, which has kept me coming back for the past decade due to its propensity to use a lot of vegetables […]
