Established in 2014, Crafty Cow is a gastropub in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, specialising in craft beers and premium steaks. The chic restaurant aspires to bridge the potential barriers between local Hong Kongers and the third-culture generation. The end result is a successful showcase of revamped Western classics infused with regional Southeast Asian flavours.
Food aside, Crafty Cow’s curated selection of alcoholic beverages is pretty impressive and one can expect imported beers and ciders from the land down under, the United States and even the UK.
The diner is open till late daily (except Mondays) and offers a tantalising variety of Asian fusion gourmet dishes. Read on more to find out what else Crafty Cow has to offer.
Located in the yuppie neighbourhood Sheung Wan, Crafty Cow could be quickly condemned as yet another overpriced white-washed establishment – except that it really isn’t.
Crafty Cow was started up by third-culture kids who have spent a significant amount of their development years abroad and wish to bring a diverse range of flavours to the tables to local Hong Kongers.
From Spanish Duroc Pork with Kimchi Slaw, Bone Marrow with Sichuan Pepper Infused Oil to Oxtongue Tortilla Espanola with Korean BBQ Sauce, Crafty Cow has effortlessly integrated Asian condiments into Western staples.
Frankly speaking, they have nailed it. These dishes have evidently brought out the best of what both the East and West have to offer.
To get your bang for the buck, we suggest you drop by during lunchtime for their affordable lunch sets which includes a hearty main such as the Wagyu Hanger Steak Sandwich (HK$138+ / S$25+) or Truffle Grilled Cheese & Onion Soup (HK$108+ / S$19.50+).
The meal includes a tea, coffee, soda or half a pint of draught beef. Top up HKD 40 / S$7.20 to upgrade to a craft beer.
