Top 10 Spanish restaurants in Hong Kong

Catalunya – Morrison Hill, Wan Chai

Catalunya - Main dining room 4Part of a Spanish franchise that kicked off in Singapore, Catalunya Hong Kong’s launch in spring 2013 was hot on the heels of the new wave of Spanish venues in the city. Surviving Hong Kong’s on-trade scene is no easy business but a start-up team featuring chefs and other staff who were veterans of El Bulli and El Celler de Can Rocar no doubt helped. The by-the-glass list is almost exclusively Spanish (unless you’d like a glass of Krug) and covers Cava, Sherry, and reds, whites and rosé from Rías Baixas, Priorat, Alella and, appropriately, Catalunya among others. The Spanish side of the list is impressive and is broken down into the country’s “Atlantic”, “Continental” and “Mediterranean” climates – with the requisite regions and grapes you’d expect from each. International wines, of which there is also a fine selection, are broken down by style. There is an especially good selection of reds and fans of Pingus, Vega Sicilia, reserve and gran reserva Rioja from Muga, Rioja Alta, Viña Tondonia et al have much to choose from.
