Top 10 Spanish restaurants in Hong Kong

Olé – Ice House Street, Central

IMG_69372If being a year old is a mark of maturity in Hong Kong restaurateuring, imagine what 16 makes you? Olé is the Spanish restaurant that helped pave the way for the others. Founded in 1998 by Carmelo Lopez who moved to Asia in the 1970s, the restaurant is a Mecca for those who crave – or at least nostalgically remember – Spanish restaurants with yellow walls, glazed terracotta tiles and other bits of assorted pottery placed in wall niches. Don’t let that fool you though – the food and wine list are entirely Spanish, again bar a couple of Champagnes. Rioja and Ribera del Duero are the only two regions given any special mention on the menu, but there’s Sherry, Cava, Priorat, Terra Alta, Toro, Somontano, whites and rosés to choose from. Little frippery, just Spanish.
