Hong Kong is home to the tastiest and most photogenic dishes out there. Here’s a rundown of our fave hotspots with the most Instagram-worthy dishes in the 852! From the—wait for it—caramelised Rolex Ball at ZUC.CCH.ERO to the Sweet Rice Dumplings at LEE Lo Mei, these restaurants not only boast delicious menus, but their iconic décor also serves as a backdrop for plenty of perfect Instagram pictures. Let’s snap away!
Unlike those traditional glutinous balls packed with soup, LEE Lo Mei’s sweet rice dumplings are light and flavourful. Upon first bite, you’ll be greeted with a mélange of flavours (think: spicy ginger soup, savoury syrupy handmade glutinous balls, and a tinge of saltiness from the candied melon). Truly LEE Lo Mei, “Ho Mei”!

Hot pot shakes off its old-fashioned image with a hip facelift at The Drunken Pot. Their delish Premium Sliced Angus Beef Cuts, one of the most Instagrammed dishes out there, is served hanging above a bed of ice. The thinly sliced beef is delicately marbled, helping it stand out despite this hot pot hotspot’s strong broths. Multicoloured and animal-shaped dim sum could also most worthy for the gram!

This new dessert lab in the heart of Causeway Bay brings a new spin to basic ingredients, incorporating elements of art and science. Look for a menu plentiful of brewed fruit teas, house signatures and yes—that delish Rolex Ball. The celebrated ball has dominated our feeds from the moment it was launched is deceptively simple. Basically a caramelised sugar sphere encapsulating a mango pomelo sago dessert, a firm tap breaks the ball, allowing you access to the refreshing combination of mango pieces, mango juice, and sago.

We also love the tapas style menu, designed to encourage guests to share and try a smorgasbord of dishes!
