Dear Dim Sum Diaries,
Love the blog.
Question: did you ever go to a restaurant called private liberty works located opposite the old Cali fitness in LKF? They closed down and have reopened on Stanley street? Have you been to either and if so your thoughts? If not.. I suggest you go I would like to know wht you think, as your reviews so far are very accurate and fun to read.
Hi Dan. I’m glad you like my blog, thanks for commenting. I actually haven’t yet got round to trying Libert Private Works as the waiting list seems endless. However, everyone I have spoken to who has been there has absolutely loved it, so I’m definitely keen to try it at some point. Have you tried it yourself? Another great private kitchen is TBLS on Hollywood Road which you must try if you haven’t already.
I have been to both, the food is really innovative and well its executed. TBLS looks great, haven’t been. I am trying to book Magnolia for a Christmas dinner, in fact it was your review on Magnolia which bright me to your blog.
Keep up the good work, you are navigating us foodies in the right direction!!
I feel kinda awkward replying to a comment on someone else’s blog, but I saw ur comment and just felt an urge to reply!
I’ve been to Liberty Private Works. It’s amazing!
I wrote a review on it, if u are interested, u might wanna have a read and leave some comments:
We also are foodies that like to share our experiences with the world.
One tiny little suggestion; I think your camera doesn’t do low-light all that well and that is key for good food pictures. May I recommend getting a Canon S100? Thta’s a point and shoot so no heavy gears to carry around. No, I don’t work for them or get a cut, but we’re totally in love with the low-light quality pictures our Canon S95 produces (you can check our blog for some sample shots).
All the best with your site.
Hi JC, thanks for your comment and glad to hear you like my site. I’ll definitely look into that camera and thanks for the tip. At the moment I use a Canon Ixus and it takes pretty good photos in good light but I agree with you about the low-light shots. It’s my birthday coming up soonish though so maybe I can put in a request for the S100! The photos do look great on your site!
I always love a HK food blog! What do you think about putting in some indication on price to assist the reader? THANKS!!
Thanks for your comment. I actually do refer to the price of the meal if not in every single review then at least in most of them. I’ll make sure to include it in every review. Thanks!
I LOVE your blog! Can’t remember how I came across it but it’s brilliant, especially for finding new restaurants to take guests in town to
Thanks so much Nicola! It’s really nice to hear that! Do let me know if you have any suggestions or recommendations for places I can try out etc or vice versa, if you’d like any suggestions, feel free to get in touch.
Would love suggestions – my bro in law and his wife are coming to town next week. They’ve been a few times before but love their food so would be keen to try out more places, especially if there’s any chinese you recommend. I have booked Zuma brunch, TBLS, China Club already….
Those are all great options so far. I would add Liberty Private Works for wow-factor food. I reviewed it earlier this year if you want to have a read. For good, trusty Chinese, I love Bistro Manchu on Elgin Street. I hear The Monogamous Chinese is delicious (under the escalator before you get to Caine Road), though I haven’t tried it yet. For dim sum, always City Hall, especially with visitors. Hope that helps!
Thanks for your previous tips, have some vegetarian visitors arriving Saturday, any veggie restaurant recommendations?
Hi Nicola, I hope the previous tips were useful!
Regarding veggie restaurants, I would strongly recommend Grassroots Pantry, which I reviewed recently. Mana is also great, but probably better for a lunch on the go rather than a sit down meal as it’s very casual.
There’s an excellent vegetarian dim sum place in Coda Plaza called Pure Veggie House – definitely take them there so that they can still experience dim sum! Even if you’re not veggie, it’s still delicious, I promise!
Also Harakan-S in Causeway Bay does great veggie Japanese food and has 50% off selected veggie dishes on Wednesdays!
Hope that helps!
Me again.. Do you have any suggestions for Sunday brunch, preferably outdoors? We’ve done Grand Hyatt and Stoep quite a bit but wasn’t sure if you’ve found anywhere else recently? Also, have you reviewed or heard much about View 62 yet?
Have you tried the brunch at Hullett House? (in the Parlour). That’s one of my favourites and I think you can request a table out on the veranda overlooking the beautiful heritage building. It’s a bit pricier than others but the food is amazing and it includes free-flow Veuve! Otherwise cheaper option is Top Deck but mainly for setting and atmosphere as the food isn’t spectacular…
Haven’t yet got round to trying View 62 but have heard good things. The chef is supposed to be great. Let me know if you give it a shot!
Hey Dim Sum Diaries
I <3 your blog! Lots of amazing restaurant reviews. I love to eat too. I don't live in HK, but I love to try good restaurants every time I'm in Hong Kong. I read your blog and I am really looking forward to going to Liberty Private Works.
I usually hang around the Hong Kong Island area. Have you been to Fofo by El Willy in Central and Le Marron in Causeway Bay? They are two of my favorite restaurants. The razor clams in Fofo are great and the Alaskan king crab legs in Le Marron are the best I have ever tried.
I have recently started a blog too:
There's not much on it though. I just started a few weeks ago. Drop by, have a look and leave a comment if you have time.
Private liberty works is absolutely to die for!! Open kitchen like many private dining, the entire food preparation keeps you hungry for more, and the quality does not disappoint. Highly recommended!!!
Hi, it is exciting for me to read your blog. I am a Chinese girl form China mainland. You can call me Coral. I hope to taste different kinds of food. Your blog gives me a lot of help. Thanks very much.
