New HK restaurant openings helmed by top world chefs

Hong Kong offers a competitive playground for the F&B industry but despite the difficult environment, the city still attracts acclaimed cooking talent from around the world. Already in 2020 there have been several new restaurant openings that are helmed by renowned chefs, presenting Hong Kong’s gourmands with brand new dining experiences.


Amelia, the celebrated Michelin-starred restaurant from San Sebastián, has opened a new branch in Hong Kong this month. The vibe in the Hong Kong restaurant is rather relaxing and its location is situated right at the Victoria harbour front.

Founder and executive chef Paulo Airaudo’s bold and progressive approach earned a Michelin star for Amelia within just six months of its opening in San Sebastián. Amelia Hong Kong is a continuation of Airaudo’s culinary philosophy, where he presents an innovative and contemporary dining experience via a monthly-evolving menu of modern European cuisine.

Not-to-be-missed dishes include Beef and Oysters Tartare/Pickled Mustard Seeds/Rye Bread, in which the classic pairing whets the appetite with intertwined elements of acidity and spiciness, coupled with crispy rye chips to add texture. Free Range Chicken/Jerusalem Artichoke/Apple, meanwhile, plays with textural and flavour elements for a cleverly balanced and well-rounded dish.

The restaurant’s wine programme features over 200 selections, with most available by the glass. Jordan Cortes Alvarez, who has 18 years of experience in the industry and previously worked at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Bangkok as head sommelier, oversees the wine programme.
