Lovers of food will definitely want to head over to Clearwater Bay for the latest opening from Feather & Bone, a flagship store that sells a selection of specialty products, serves coffee and even has room for you to enjoy some wine and cheese
While we love eating out at our favourite restaurants in Hong Kong, such as Arcane, Upper Modern Bistro and Grassroots Pantry, sometimes, we want to stay in and cook a fabulous meal for family and friends. Thankfully, online grocery store Feather & Bone has opened its new flagship store in Clearwater Bay, meaning we now have access to specialty food products such as meat, alcohol, cheese, coffee and chocolate from around the world.
Feather & Bone: A new addition to the food scene in Clearwater Bay
You may have visited Feather & Bone’s other outlets in Central or Happy Valley, but the new Clearwater Bay flagship store is a real foodie paradise. Inside, visitors will find a huge selection of specialty products from across the world, perfect for all of your wining and dining needs.
“What we want to be is a friendly local grocer. You know, people will come in every week, and we know their name, we know what they like and we can recommend products based on what they’ve liked in the past,” says General Manager of Feather & Bone Mark Chan, the lucky man whose job it is to source the tasty products from across the globe.
Enjoy a coffee while you shop or stay for a wine with a selection of cheese or charcuterie
We love that Feather & Bone is serving locally roasted Kim & Co coffee inside the new flagship store. Grab a cup and a freshly-made danish or muffin to enjoy as you peruse the shelves.
Another favourite part from our shopping experience at Feather & Bone is the eight-seat counter, where guests can enjoy a glass of wine alongside a cheese board and charcuterie platter. Get the friendly staff to make some suggestions to suit your taste and enjoy with a range of preserves and pickles.
Meat, cheese, alcohol, chocolate and more!
The butchery at Feather & Bone in Clearwater Bay has a huge range of ethically-sourced meat, including Australian grass and grain fed cuts of beef, free-range pork and lamb, poultry and charcuterie.
“A lot of the products here at Feather & Bone are sourced from Australia as a couple of the owners are actually from there. We make sure that all of our meat is ethically-sourced, and we travel to the farms to actually see how they operate,” Chan says.
With a background as a chef and having worked for the likes of Gordon Ramsay, General Manager Mark Chan also worked at London’s La Fromagerie before joining the team at Feather & Bone, so has a huge soft spot for cheese. He chooses seasonal varieties and ensures that there’s always a selection of classic hard and soft available as well as some lesser known options.
Products we love
There is so much to choose from at Feather & Bone that not buying everything may be your biggest problem. Here are a few of our favourites:
Besides the beautiful packaging, this dark chocolate marries just the right amount of bitterness with fruitiness and was completely gone within hours of purchase.
When you have staunch carnivores asking for more of your pasta sauce, then you know you are onto a winner!
This sublime Touraine goat cheese is super creamy and a little nutty, making it perfect for salads or to enjoy with a glass of wine. We are enjoying it even more as it ages.
The new store is going to be hosting some events in the coming months, so stay tuned for details!
