Smack dab in the middle of the blue line, known primarily as a residential and office area, is Quarry Bay. But this up-and-coming neighbourhood is not given its due for its incredible options for food and drinks. So whether you’re grabbing lunch during work, heading to a rooftop bar for some drinks and a great view, or wanting to try some local delicacies, read on to find our picks for the best restaurants in Quarry Bay.

Shugetsu

The famous dipping ramen or Tsukemen spot, Michelin Guide-recommended Shugetsu has a branch in Quarry Bay. (The second location is on Gough Street.) It features a special broth prepared with sardines, mackerel, kelp, and soy sauce. Buzzing at lunchtime, you might have to wait a while, but it’s definitely worth it to be  transported to Japan with the authenticity and flavours. You can’t go wrong with the classic Shugetsu Tsukemen (HK$93) but the Shrimp Abura Ramen (HK$102), exclusive to this branch, is also worth a try. P.S. It’s cash only so don’t forget your wallet!

The Sixteenth

Perhaps the coolest concept eatery in Quarry Bay, and most of Hong Kong, The Sixteenth is the Pirata Group’s four-in-one collection of restaurants. This includes the two Italian spots, La Favorita, which offers an elevated experience with dishes like lobster pasta and Tempo Tempo, which has a more casual, laid-back vibe for snacks and cocktails on the terrace. For Japanese, you can either go to Honjokko, which serves a modern omakase experience or TMK Funk & Rolls, which features the brand’s signature menu with handrolls, snacks, and sake. And they cater to all diets, so you’re set even if you’re vegan or vegetarian.

Grotto

The now Instagram-famous spot for dining in Quarry Bay, Grotto is more than its good looks. It has a great personality, i.e. menu too. You can enjoy their food menu, which includes a Seafood Pearl Pasta (HK$118) and salads, but the coffee and baked goods are where it’s at. Their scones are some of the best in Hong Kong and the Espresso Tonic is also well-loved. And of course, you can’t leave without trying the croffle (croissant waffle) – the Oreo Biscoff Croffle (HK$42) takes a bit longer to prepare, but is worth the wait.

For an affordable Quarry Bay eatery, head over to the camping-themed restaurant, appropriately named Camper’s. In addition to the outdoors-themed décor, you will find healthy, home-style Japanese dishes which have no MSG or additives, and include more veggies and minimal fat. While they are known for their Slow-Cooked Pork Cartilage Udon ($69) which is stewed for seven hours, you can’t go wrong with their 15 Vegetables Curry Rice ($65) or Beef Rib Curry Rice (HK$68) either.

The owner has travelled across Hokkaido, collecting trinkets to decorate the restaurant, including a mural of the places he’s visited. One of the few places in Hong Kong offering Hokkaido-style curry, Asiri is great for your stomach and your soul.

A growing favourite across Hong Kong, Ask for Alonzo’s first ever location was in Quarry Bay, which opened in 2018! A modern trattoria serving dishes that are inspired by the Mediterranean provinces of Italy, you can expect home-style Italian cooking, pasta, and a whole lot of love. It has a cozy vibe and a rotating lunch menu, so you never know what you might get. While all their dishes are delicious, their pasta is particularly loved and their sauces are rich and flavourful. The classic lasagne (HK$168) has our heart.
