If you’ve ever visited the world-famous Tartine bakery in San Francisco and had a bite of their life-changing (yes, life-changing) pastries and artisanal breads, then you’ll know that a newcomer by the same name in Hong Kong would have a lot to live up to. Thankfully, the menu at Tartine (2-3/F, 38 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, 2808-0752) has tempted our inner glutton right off the bat, with an all-day selection of open-faced sandwiches dreamt up by chef Philippe Orrico, of On Dining and Upper Modern Bistro.

With prices hovering around $88, this might be the next best thing since sliced bread, i.e. sliced bread piled high with premium ingredients—think black truffle, lobster, fresh burrata, roasted figs, goat cheese, pork rillettes and duck confit.
