Shopping Rules In Hong Kong!

People in Hong Kong love to shop, it’s the favoured past time there and where they spend their hard earned, they need to eat good. This is why there are so many restaurants and food courts in the shopping complexes, as retail therapy burns a lot of calories right, so you need to fuel up for health reasons. It’s a hard gig. Langham Place is just the spot for wallet burning and good food antics – we found out.

CoCo Ichibanya is Japanese francise specialising in widely consumed Japanese curry. Think katsu but elevated and you there. The spice levels can be tuned to your liking and it’s served with rice, an omelette can be thrown in for good measure too. It’s the sort of food that gives you that nice warm soul enriching hug. The sauce has a wallop of umami sweet nuttiness, and a balance of heat and spice.  I’ve also since heard that they have opened up a branch in Covent Garden this month – this is a celestial voice singing in my ears!

The grilled beef curry $54. So, so good. 

Pork cutlet omelette curry $58 is a total delight. 

Pork cutlet curry sans egg $52. 

Grubstance rating 4/5 

We chase down the curry with wontons from Cheekei which are total gems. The prawns were a lovely crunchy texture, sweet to taste and totally enhanced by the white pepper with sesame oil. They were hands down the best wontons we had of the trip.
