4. Mr & Mrs Fox
Declared as the brunch spot in Hong Kong, Mr & Mrs Fox boasts a stylish and elegant space, with a prime focus on seafood and dry-aged beef (tsk tsk it’s aged a minimum of 28 days). The cut to order here has to be the 22 oz. Dry-Aged Bone-In Rib-Eye. Tender, and served with a side of half baked potato and roasted garlic, it’s certainly one of the truly incredible pieces up for digs at this chic spot. If you’re looking for something a bit lighter, the Heirloom Cherry Tomato and Watermelon Salad, served with a ball of burrata, is a potpourri of flavours, and contrasting textures.

The Chop House transforms mundane eats into a welcome al-fresco surprise, using only the freshest of ingredients to prepare no-frills comfort food. Be on the lookout for well-executed, simple offerings in the middle of Tsim Sha Tsui, as well as beef cuts sources far and wide (from New Zealand to Australia, and the U.S.) The Mixed Grilled Meat Platter featuring quality grass-fed Aussie tenderloin, lamb chops, and two kinds of sausages is surely something to behold. Make sure to end the meal on a high (or sweet note) with the Lemon Meringue Pie: it’s simply delicious with a custardy, frothy meringue on top.

If sensational cuts are your thing, the Grand Hyatt Steakhouse features prime cuts of U.S., Canadian, and Japanese beef on top of their coveted seafood and oyster bar. Kick your meal off with the Seared Maryland Carb Cakes—light, hearty, and paired with a small green salad that makes the dish that much more tasty—as well as the Dry-Aged Tomahawk Rib-Eye, which arrives with a oh-so-crispy exterior, beautifully done up with some tender and juicy meat. But, the main draw here has to be the Wagyu Beef—and massive slabs of meat like the A-5 Kumamoto Tenderloin and the M7 Tomahawk Rib Eye Chop. The menu also boasts a catch of seafood that’s consistently good. Be on the lookout for the Canadian Lobster topped with herb butter or the Patagonian Toothfish, which is flaky, light, and a perfect light portion.

This has been Hong Kong’s best kept secrets for years, and sure, it’s a bit of a drag to hit up Hang Hau to check what the fuss is all about. The menu composes of both Aussie and American meats, and though it can be a bit too much, the distinct flavor profiles of each cut make it truly hard to pick a winner. Our favourite has to be the Australia Wagyu Beef—it’s tender with a great depth of flavor, and comes with some juicy fatty goodness.

Boasting themselves as the ‘Best American Steakhouse in Hong Kong,’ Ruth’s Chris recreates an authentic (read: ‘Amurica’) devilishly delicious dining experience in the hood. Originally founded in New Orleans in 1965, Ruth’s has over 140+ restaurants worldwide, including 10 branches in Asia online. Fitted out with a dark wood interior, plush leather seating, and dim lighting, Ruth’s evokes American fine dining reminiscent of the best of Delmonico’s in New York. Much of the menu at Ruth’s Chris is classic American fare (think: New Orleans style Barbecued Shrimp and premium USDA beef). Drinker? Imbibe the wide varietals on offer, especially a bottle of Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir, which complements the steak beautifully. A good refreshing taste from the Hong Kong ho-hum.
