Another way to spend an afternoon in Hong Kong is to have a delectable lunch overlooking the bay and admiring the city skyline. If you have a hankering for Japanese fusion cuisine, one of Nobuyuki Matsuhisa’s world renown restaurants, Nobu, is situated inside the Intercontinental Hong Kong Hotel. Their signature dish, Black Cod Saikyo Yaki (HK$340), is the classic that never fails — a gorgeous slab of codfish, perfectly marinated in miso paste. Also pictured is the Prawn and Scallop with Spicy Garlic Sauce (HK$240); large, juicy coins of scallops with fresh prawns soaking in a tagy, spicy sauce. If you’re unlike me and are a fan of sashimi, go for the Nobu Signature Bento Box set (Lunch) instead for a selection of sushi, sashimi, salad and a variation of hot food (HK$338). Included in the lunch bento set is the Rock Shrimp Tempura with Creamy Spicy Sauce, another favourite of mine that can also be ordered à la carte. In fact, my mouth is watering now thinking of the bite-sized tempura slathered in that tantalising sauce. When heading to Nobu, remember to make a reservation and that lunch is always more affordable than dinner! Nobu restaurants are located all over the world.
And after a satisfying meal, take a walk to Harbour City for some shopping. No trip to HK is complete for me without at least one visit to the Agnès b. Cafe for a cuppa and to consolidate your shopping damage!
