Wan Chai's J Senses is all about combining the old and the new of Hong Kong, and the three-story heritage building is one of the hottest spots in town when it comes to dining. With a number of unique restaurant concepts, you'll find something that suits your palate.

For those who enjoy the tantalizing tastes of Sichuan cuisine, Qi - House of Sichuan is the go-to place. The restaurant elevates the flaming hot and tongue-numbing cuisine to the next level, with signature dishes including mapo tofu, crispy mala beef, and the giant chili fried Dungeness crab that's perfect for sharing amongst a group of friends.

Prefer something milder but still jam-packed with flavor? New Mediterranean restaurant QMO is all about keeping your "Quriosity" fresh. Open since May with a menu that takes its inspiration from the region, the restaurant brings the exciting and vibrant flavors of Mediterranean cuisine to Hong Kong, while also featuring a range of seafood and meat specialties.

For something modern and chic, head to J Senses's 22 Ships, a tapas bar by chef Jason Atherton, who founded the Michelin star-winning Pollen Street Social in London. Named after its address on the quaint Ship Street in Wan Chai, the restaurant offers a buzzy ambience and modern, creative tapas. It blends into the neighborhood with a balance of vintage touches and modern charm, with signature dishes including Spanish breakfast and Berkshire pork and foie gras burgers. 

End your day on a sweet note at Zoë, a bakery specializing in French-style cakes since 2002. All cakes by Zoë are freshly made at their own bakery workshop using only premium ingredients. Not only do they taste good, they look amazing: Each cake is exquisitely crafted with a hint of humor, including the signature smiley face.
