The lovely fall weather calls for a nice meal outside, and for the best outdoor dining experience, look no further than Tsim Sha Tsui East’s Alfresco Lane.
A strip by the waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui Centre and Empire Centre, Alfresco Lane is a haven for urbanites wanting to escape the busy city without actually having to skip town. It offers a wide variety of cuisines from around the world, with a magnificent view of Victoria Harbour as the backdrop.
If you prefer to knock back a few pints with your buddies, head down toLondon House (Tsim Sha Tsui Centre G5, 3650-3333) by world-leading chef Gordon Ramsay. This two-story establishment is ideal for casual after-work drinks, an intimate dinner for two, or even a weekend brunch with family. Now, this wouldn’t be a proper British pub without some good ole’ fashioned fish and chips: At London House, the dish is fried to perfection by head chef Vikram Singh. Succulent cod wrapped in a light, golden beer batter, accompanied by thick, crispy chips.
Beer aficionados will also appreciate a good German bar and restaurant: Brotzeit (Tsim Sha Tsui Centre G6, UG16, 2316-2666) brings the best from Germany to the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. Helmed by German executive chef Marco Jonas, Brotzeit offers a variety of traditional German delights that match perfectly with their range of imported beers. Try the quintessentially German pork knuckle: Marinated in beer before being steamed and roasted. The knuckle is crispy on the outside but perfectly tender and juicy on the inside.
Prefer something Asian but with a twist? Namo Avant Thai (Empire Centre G18, 2739-1133) is the place to go. The restaurant is known for its innovative interpretations of vibrant Thai cuisine. Group executive chef “Amoo” Wijannarongk Kunchit from Thailand has given the menu a “Thai-pas” spin, making it perfect for diners to share, sampling multiple flavors with a few drinks. Signature dishes include the Siam fish mousse cake, and the “XLO” giant Atlantic octopus, chargrilled to tender perfection with a light lemongrass and coconut foam.
Whether you’re in the neighborhood for a stroll with the family, a jog along the waterfront or an after-work bite with your colleagues, make sure you check out what Alfresco Lane has to offer.
