It’s no secret that Causeway Bay is proud of its mega malls, designer flagship stores, indie fashion and Korean fashion. After a money-spending spree at all of your favourite stores – your tired feet and hungry bellies are bound to need a refuel – there are also a range of restaurants and dessert havens for food lovers to explore. From Hong Kong desserts to wallet-friendly eats, we’ll share with where to eat in Causeway Bay for maximum satisfaction!
1. Little Bao Diner
A little bao here and a little bao there – it’s gonna be a tough one to pick from the a-la-carte menu! There are two vegetarian baos available, one of them being the trendy impossible meat. If you’re craving a sweet bao, the miniature dessert versions won’t disappoint, but be warned, if you take too long to Instagram your ice-cream bao, it WILL melt in a split second! We’re also fans of their shrimp tacos, burrata, and the chicken poppers. And for drinks, the yuzu leaf cocktail is the bomb!

2. Pizza Maru
This Korean eatery always has a crowd waiting to dig in and it’s understandable why. The Maru Blue Mussel Pot and Korean Crab Tian are much-loved seafood dishes with a Korean twist that you need to get knocked over. Plus, the honey yuzu garden greens sets others salads to shame with its savoury flavours. For pizzas, you can opt for premium, classic, or Chicago style if you want to go all-out on the crust (and cheese!). And of course, the Korean Fried Chicken corner cannot be missed!

3. Drunken Pot
For a sizzling meal with stunning harbour views, head up to Drunken Pot, a fabulous hotpot restaurant with a cult following. If you’re keen to go all out, get the ultimate 5-in-1 hotpot feast: a pot featuring five lip-smacking broth bases such as Sichuan-style spicy soup; nourishing papaya soup; traditional beef brisket in clear broth; Boston lobster in tomato soup; and creamy Teochew-style satay soup. This is definitely one of our fave places to eat in Causeway Bay.

This Indonesian fusion resto teleports you with its village themed interior design and food served on a banana leaf. We love their sets as you can taste a little bit of everything on a single plate! The beef rendang with mixed platter and rice, and fried sea bass in Indonesian style have us coming back on the regular.

6. Hungry Korean
Looking for a hefty Korean feast? The Hungry Korean is a great budget-friendly option for fast-food Korean cuisine. The casual canteen serves dishes like bibimbap, japchae, kimbap, and of course, kimchee. You might just want to avoid this place at peak lunch hours as it can get pretty busy.
