You can't beat beautiful tapas made with fresh ingredients, and this is exactly what Elia serves up alongside a fab selection of cocktails.
We are always down for some spicy Mexican food, refined French cuisine or a meal at one of the best Italian restaurants, and of course we are mad for Spanish food too. Offering views of the harbour from Tsim Sha Tsui, Elia is a contemporary Spanish restaurant and bar that serves delicious morsels alongside great cocktails. Find out why you need to make a visit.
Why you should spend some time at Elia in TST
There’s nothing better than enjoy an exquisite cocktail in an outdoor setting, but let’s be honest, the limited space in Hong Kong doesn’t always allow for this. Enter Elia, a new nautical Spanish restaurant and bar from Zinc Group with a huge outdoor area and an F&B programme that will make you happy that you visited.
What should I eat?
Well, Elia not only imports traditional Spanish ingredients, they even brought over Miguel Lopez, a chef from Spain whose talents are clear from the get-go. We started off with the Crunchy Lamb with Roasted Gazpacho ($55), which was an absolute winner. The beautiful roasted flavours were beautifully matched, with an exquisite parcel of lamb, which had our photographer going back for more.
One of my favourites was the Salmon Tartare ($128) that comes encased in delicious homemade bread with spring onion, garlic and mustard. Divinely decadent, these little bites of deliciousness pair perfectly well with the El Destructor cocktail ($168) crafted from Chambord and peat whiskey which has a lovely caramel finish.
Another fave were the Royal Prawns ($188) that come with Spanish paprika. You could taste just how fresh these bad boys were, and the portions are perfect for sharing, as tapas should be. Of course, you can also indulge in three different paellas and Elia even has a full vegetarian menu, which we think is fabulous.
Finally, don’t miss out on trying the Rose Apple Pie with Red Fruit jam. Super sweet, this dessert is the perfect way to end an evening with friends or family at Elia.
