One of the highlights during my trip to Hong Kong last year was my meal at Yardbird, an uber-hip yakitori bar with a Manhattan-chic vibe.
Judging from the crowd, Yardbird is already one of the hottest restaurants in Hong Kong. It has that winning formula that is hard to beat: a sexy and young crowd, a great drink list – consisting of sake, shochu and wine – and very tasty grilled skewers. Its yakitori menu (HK$38 per stick) offers nose-to-tail eating of a chicken; you can find anything from thigh meat to gizzard, heart, and tail. They are well-executed and straightforward and very delicious. But what you must not miss is the signature KFC (Korean Fried Cauliflower), it is kick-ass awesome and very addictive. I would fly to Hong Kong just to eat it.
Yardbird is definitely the place to go for a drink and some light bites when you are in Hong Kong. I am thrilled to see them ranking #46 in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards 2013. Congratulations to the team!
