Best Lunches in Central

Posted on September 22, 2020 by Youn

What to eat for lunch is one of the most important questions of the day. And with Hong Kong’s ever-changing landscape of restaurants, the huge selection we have is both a blessing and a curse. We try to make that selection a little easier for you with a roundup of some of our favourite spots in Central for every occasion.

Best for Business Lunch

Hong Kongers are known to be some of the hardest working people in the world. This is none more evident than during the mad dash at lunch time for a quick bite or a takeaway meal to eat at the desk. One of the few times we’re able to slow down for a delicious meal is for business lunches. Impress your clients with any of these choices!

Best for Lunch with Colleagues

When not working from home, we spend more time with our workmates on a weekly basis than with family or friends! So its important to break bread with your colleagues from time to time. Whether it’s catching up with a good work friend after a period of WFH, a small team lunch, or a promotion celebration, these restaurants provide great food at reasonable prices!

Best Vegetarian/Vegan Option for Lunch

Best for Lunch for One

From time to time we all need a break from the “noise” of Hong Kong. What better way to do just that than by eating a great meal while catching up on your favourite e-book or podcast? If you’re looking for a casual spot where you won’t feel out of place with your headphones on, these are for you!

Best for a Takeaway Lunch

Sometimes we have no option other than to pick up a quick takeaway to bring back to the desk. But that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice the quality of the food you’re eating. Visit any of these choices for a takeaway lunch that will have you back at your desk in no time and ready to meet those deadlines!
