With its beautiful crowds, debaucherous theme nights (think Tinder Tuesdays) and all-you-can-eat bao events, this New York transplant has become one of the hottest spots in Hong Kong. While the uninspired dining room offers up fast and loose interpretations of Malay and Singaporean cuisine, the bar serves sophisticated cocktails with an eye firmly on the classics, alongside a selection of raw bar, excellent pork belly baos and sliders. Expect a dimly-lit New York vibe with Wu-Tang on the sound system and expatriate Brooklynites at the door.

What to drink
Fatty Crab single-handedly brought the pickle back to Hong Kong and the city has—for better or worse—never been the same. Pickle brine is made in-house with Thai chiles, ginger, garlic and orange juice.
