Butchers Club Deli Aberdeen
Aberdeen is on the up. The impending arrival of the MTR has seen a wave of new and interesting cafés and restaurants popping up in last year or so and it’s fast becoming an exciting foodie hub.
One large space that has been transformed is located in a non-descript industrial building on Wong Chuk Hang Road. With cars hurtling down the highway right outside, and a dark and dreary entrance, it’s not immediately apparent that what awaits on the 16th floor is a luxury men’s fashion, home and lifestyle store.
Ed1tus is a 7,000 square foot space that features polished concrete floors and exposed beams, and showcases the best modern luxury brands from Europe and America. In addition to clothes, there are accessories, shoes, cosmetics and a beautifully curated selection of vintage Italian homeware and furniture.
The space integrates the Butchers Club Deli, which takes the incredibly popular private dining concept and integrates a New York-style deli, open for lunches and specialising in home made charcuterie. The dry aged steak will continue to feature heavily on the menu, but customers can now visit for lunch and devour a slow roasted prime rib sandwich, a grilled Angus burger with bacon, a caesar salad featuring handcrafted bacon and charcuterie platters.
At night, the space is an extension of the butcher and private dining room of The Butchers Club in Tin Wan and will host private events for up to 120 people, plus the immense rooftop space is home to farmers markets, weddings and other events.
We sampled the lunch menu and the highlights were the charcuterie board, the caesar salad (with possibly the best bacon you will ever eat) and the steak and mushroom pie. Prices range from $60 for a soup to $200 for a platter for 2 people, which is tremendous value for money. And if you can manage a dessert, then the cheesecake is a must-try!
