Looking for the perfect Kwun Tong restaurant for your next lunch or dinner date? Kwun Tong is at the Eastern part of the Kowloon Peninsula, and it’s home to different scales of restaurants and shops for you to explore. From Japanese bakeries to local rice noodle rolls shops to hidden dessert spots, it’s a well-rounded district with residential buildings, industrial areas and plenty of good eats.
So, which Kwun Tong restaurant will fit the bill if you’re looking for a bite to eat? Read on for 3 favorites to check out next time you’re in the area.
Hazukido may have different stores in Hong Kong, but none of them is quite like the one in APM. This family-run franchise opened amid the COVID-19 pandemic and gained wide popularity thanks to its lemon meringue croissants, which are only available in this location. This slightly sour, citrus-flavored hot croissant is made with pastry dough shipped fresh from Taiwan to Hong Kong every day.
The lemon meringue croissants are the most popular, but savory flavors such as smoked chicken are available for when you need something closer to a proper brunch. We can’t say much about their menu because it changes seasonally (last year’s pumpkin croissants came around during Halloween). Follow their social media pages for the most updated news on what’s on offer.
Address: Shop 9B, 1/F, Millennium City 5, APM, 418 Kwun Tong Road, Kwun Tong
If you’re on the hunt for Hong Kong-style food, add the Kwun Tong restaurant Feng Ming to your list. Fans of traditional white rice noodle rolls will be right at home here. But if you’re in the mood to try something new, go for the black or red rice noodle rolls. These variations also have some added health benefits – the black rice noodle rolls are more protein-packed, and the red ones are higher in fiber.
You can choose from a variety of ingredients to add to your roll like corn, egg, pork, pork liver, beef and more. However, the shredded chicken rice noodle roll is a favorite among customers. A meal here starts around HK$14, including fish balls or shumai and a drink.
Address: Shop G34, G/F, Kwun Tong Square, 68 Hoi Yuen Road, Kwun Tong
Call Me Chef
Hidden in a factory building is another Kwun Tong restaurant known as Call Me Chef. Helmed by a graduate from Le Cordon Bleu, Call Me Chef is well-known for their desserts ranging from crepe cakes to chiffon cakes to puddings. They can also make birthday cakes of different cartoon characters if you’re throwing a themed party.
If you feel like sitting down for a proper meal, Call Me Chef also offers a menu of Western cuisine. Their menu changes from time to time, but the most notable regular item is their foie gras toast. The 3-course lunch set is somewhere to start if you’d also like to check out their desserts.
Address: Shop T, 4/F, Camel Paint Building Block 3, 60 Hoi Yuen Road, Kwun Tong
