Davin Kim was born in Korea and moved to Hong Kong in 2015 to be chef at Cobo House (8-12 South Lane, Shek Tong Tsui, tel: 2656 3088), where he combines his Korean roots with years of Western culinary training. My dining preference is that I usually look for something I have never tried before. I think it is very important for a chef to always try new things for inspiration. But there are some restaurants I go to regularly. In my personal time, I would say I like light foods. Since moving to Hong Kong, one of my favourite places is Jamie’s Italian (2/F, Soundwill Plaza 2 – Midtown, 1-29 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 3958 2222). Jamie Oliver is my role model and favourite chef. His restaurant here does a great job of delivering healthy and delicious Italian cuisine. The ingredients used are fresh and light so that is why I like it. Tsuta (two locations including V Point, 18 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 3188 2639) is a Japanese ramen shop that has been honoured with one Michelin star in Japan, and I think they really deserve it. Three amazing Bangkok restaurants with women head chefs They serve the best Japanese ramen I have ever tried. The soup and flavour is light but still mouth-watering. For a new visitor to Hong Kong, I would take them to Lamma Island. There are lots of delicious snack shops, nice coffee bars, and seafood markets and restaurants. There are too many to single one out. Also, there are beautiful and refreshing hiking trails where you can escape from the crowd. If I feel like some food from home, I would go to Myung Ga Restaurant (Shop 2702, 27/F, iSquare, 63 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2369 1177). It is a long-standing Korean restaurant in Hong Kong and I would say the food is very close to the food in Korea. They help me to overcome homesickness sometimes. If I were to splurge on a meal, I would go to Vea (29/F-30/F, The Wellington, 198 Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2711 8639) because that restaurant seamlessly combines Asian and European cuisine. It is definitely worth going for a dinner at this restaurant for a celebration. In terms of local snacks, I like deep-fried fish meat siu mai. I found this in a Tsuen Wan snack stall called Stand Up Eating (Shop 25A Tsuen Hing Path, Tsuen Wan, tel: 2405 3838). The siu mai skin is really crispy while the fish meat inside is tender and chewy. I enjoy it though I know it’s fattening and not super healthy.
