A modern exploration of authentic Asian cuisines in a lavish setting within the prestigious LKF Tower
August 10th, 2017
In June 2017, Executive Chef Kent Lee Chin Heng – known for his cooking while Executive Chef at highly-rated international restaurants Hakkasan Mumbai and Kai Mayfair in London – opened the doors of Fang Fang, a contemporary Asian concept restaurant and bar perched in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong, Central. Whimsically named after a famous yet mysterious Chinese opera singer, Fang Fang is set to capture hearts with an offering of contemporary cuisine embracing Chinese and Asian flavours. Dressed in sleek black interiors beautifully accentuated by dragon motifs and bright upholstered benches, Fang Fang is a feast for the eyes. This theatrically dramatic ambience can be enjoyed by up to 130 guests, with spacious seating perfect for executive events. Its bar, managed by Gagan Gurung who has earned an equally stellar status in his time at the bar of Zuma Hong Kong, promises sublime indulgence with his imaginative cocktails.
Cuisine. “Love at first dine” – Fang Fang guarantees an artistic exploration of modern gastronomy in fresh ingredients and detailed attention to plating. Start with the tender Five Spice Squid veiled with a rich batter, or enjoy the British-Chinese flavours of Crispy Kale with Fish Floss. From the mains, expand your tastes with the Beef Short Ribs dressed with 15-year tangerine sauce, or the Roasted Duck that can alternatively be served with Beluga Caviar. Finish off with the Mango and Passionfruit sorbet to refresh your tongue.
Drinks. The Five Elements is the star of Fang Fang’s cocktail menu; a harmonious symphony of elements of wood, water, fire, earth and wind. Fond of adventure? How about a sip of Omikuji Girl, a mix of chilli tequila, yuzu, barley shochu and five-spice served in a clay cup resembling a young girl? For the less serious drinkers, choose Trai Drat, a charming concoction of coconut milk, pineapple, lemon and turmeric served in a panda-shaped bowl. The bar serves wines and spirits, ranging from international selections of Scotch, Korean soju, Japanese sake, beer, champagne, rose and red wines.
Fang Fang Hong Kong opens daily from 12 pm till late night Monday through Saturday (closed Sundays). And don’t miss the evening Happy Hour sessions every weekday from 5 to 7 pm.
