Late Night Noshing in Hong Kong – An Update for the Sevens’ Celebrants

Two days until the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens.

Suddenly, late night noshing has become a hot topic. Perhaps the advent of the Rugby Sevens Tournament has something to do with it. A few suggested stops for hunger and/or stomach lining, listed alphabetically, are:

Archie B’s Deli, SoHo (Has dropped off in recent months but the Philly Cheese Steak is still quite good.)

Assaf, SoHo, Central (Lebanese dine in or take out from next door at the Beyrouth. Better food than Ebenezer’s at a premium price.)

Bulldogs Pub and Bar, Lan Kwai Fong (Extensive menu. Slightly pricey for what you get. Pub food plus. Great Service.)

Cul-de-sac, Lan Kwai Fong, Wan Chai (Good burgers and the like. Serves “Poutine” whatever that is.)

Delaney’s, Wanchai (Irish pub. Food served upstairs or, better yet, downstairs. Order carefully.)

East End Brewery, Causeway Bay but Quarry Bay MTR Station (See Hong Kong Brew Pub. Same owners.)

Ebenezer’s, Wan Chai and Lan Kwai Fong (A personal favorite serving Middle Eastern and South Asian dishes to go or to eat standing up or out on the street. Love their Shwarma)

Heaven and Earth, Knutsford Terrace (Excellent Cantonese food in an opium den atmosphere. Time for Hong Kong to outlaw smoking indoors.),

Hei Kee, Wan Chai, (Never been there but crab lovers line up at all hours to feast.),

Hibiki Japanese Cuisine Sake Bar, Knutsford Terrace (Sushi at 2:00 AM? Not my cup of sake.)

Hong Kong Brew Pub, Lan Kwai Fong (Best hamburger in Lan Kwai Fong and great beer list.)

Hot Dog, SoHo, Central (Disappointing if you expect a Nathan’s or Chicago style dog. Otherwise it’s just another fast food joint to me)

Inn Side Out, Causeway Bay but Quarry Bay MTR Station (An al-fresco madhouse with somewhat edible food and poor service but sports fans seem to like it.)

Post 97, Lan Kwai Fong (A venerable choice that serves great Eggs Benedict and other Western breakfast specialties but at a price.)

Skitz, Wan Chai (Could be re-named “Scuzz” because of its clientele. Food is plain and filling and reasonably priced. Pastas in particular.)

Taco Loco, SoHo, Central (For us displaced Californians, sometimes the only thing that will satisfy is a huge greasy Burrito. This is the place to get one.)

Yau Gwat Hei, Causeway Bay, Morrison Hill, Tsim Sha Tsui, Cheung Sha Wan (Hot Pot capitol of Hong Kong. Share a table)

Personally, I still head for the Flying Pan, Wan Chai and SoHo, Central (Reviewed previously. When I want a good breakfast, late or early, this is where I go.)
