Beer & Fish, Munchies, Okinawa Festival at PMQ
Beer & Fish (67 Staunton St., Central, 2540-0888) has opened up on the corner of Staunton and Aberdeen, serving up deep-fried goodness and lots of craft brews on tap. B&F is the brainchild of some of the guys behind TAP–The Ale Project in Mong Kok—and you’ll see local brand Young Master Ales featured prominently on the menu. Fish and chips are the order of the day, but you’ll also be able to dig into crab cake toast thingies (aka “Crab Ceggs”) and other seafood specialties.
Chewy, dense North American-style cookies and souped-up donuts take center stage at Munchies (4 Shin Hing St., Sheung Wan, facebook.com/munchieshk), a new dessert hangout in NoHo. Bonus: You can order the cookies and donuts on their own, OR you can fill them up with ice-cream and turn them into fantabulicious ice-cream sandwiches. All of the goodies are supposed to be organic, all-natural, GMO-free etc, etc—I have no idea what this actually means but it does make everything sound marginally healthier and a bit more guilt-free.
Way Down South
Make your way down to PMQ this weekend to catch the ENxNichi (ennichi roughly means “special holy day” in Japanese) festival, offering quirky eats from the southern Okinawa prefecture. This family-friendly event features game booths for the children, live traditional entertainment, and tons and tons of yummy Okinawan treats, of course. From beers to gyozas to awamori rice spirit cocktails, there’ll be plenty to fill your belly. The festival runs from now until August 2.
