The Best Places to Eat Steak in Hong Kong
We are all massive foodies here in Hong Kong and with restaurants opening faster than we can keep up, we are also suckers for a good restaurant roundup list. Our latest is the best steaks in town. Buckle up, you’re in for a meaty ride!
It’s tough being at the top hey La Vache? Although it wouldn’t seem they buckle under pressure after consistently serving the best steak in the 852 for the last few years. There are a couple of reasons the steak here is so good; number 1, that’s all they serve – the menu consists of just one dish; steak and fries, so all their energy is going into the finest bits of beef. And number 2 is that special sauce and those perfectly cooked fries that accompany the steak. Oh my, so much goodness on one plate.

When it comes to steak there’s no denying the Brazilians know their stuff, so this hideout in LKF is every steak lover’s dream serving the good stuff Churrascaria style. This method of serving different cuts of meat originated from the south of Brazil in the early 1800’s and is now taking Hong Kong by storm. The steak is cooked to perfection and the other meat is on-par too. The array of sides at brunch is pretty spectacular and even the barbequed pineapple is something to write home about!

This European-style bistro boasts a rather impressive selection of beer, yet has started to make waves in the steak stakes (get it?). Their 1885 Black Angus Ribeye served with truffle butter is so damn dreamy it’ll have you dreaming about it for days. Simply served with frites and a small salad, the chunk of beef takes up a majority of the plate, satisfying any hungry meat-lover.
