From Sai Ying Pun to Kennedy Town, the district has seen a raft of new restaurant openings. We've reviewed five places recently, and all have much to recommend. With the MTR Island line extension making it more accessible, there's no excuse not to venture west and try something new.

Ina Hotpot by Inaguku - robust Chinese-style fare

Handmade beef balls weren't what we expected ... these were ... fluffy, and seasoned with dried tangerine peel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Neighborhood - comforting French-Italian fare

We couldn't fault the handmade pasta; the tagliolini was eggy and al dente. The sea urchin spaghetti also delighted my Italian guest

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chino - refreshing blend of Mexican and Japanese fare

White fish ceviche with yuzu lime and cashews wasn't cured for long ... but it was bright and refreshing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shiba, Kennedy Town - Japanese skewers

We especially liked the miso pork ribs  — the .. meat was fatty, rich and slightly sweet ... Shiso minced chicken was soft and moist

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stack, Sai Ying Pun - pancakes

Our favourite savoury dish wasn't a pancake: it was the comforting, homey hash with scraps of duck meat
