Yardbird, HK


Yardbird hong kong new restaurants. Hong Kong’s go-to yakitori location has a new area and larger menu.

Yardbird, famed for its beak-to-tail yakitori (skewered chicken) and top-notch cocktails, has been a go-to for locals and visitors alike because of the opening in the city’s Soho district in 2011.
Late in 2015, the team moved the continually popular operation to the western district of Sheung Wan, meaning a much larger area together with a larger menu. 
That’s excellent news for those after a seat, however less so for regulars who loved the intimacy and buzz of the original house, just minutes from Hong Kong’s night life center.

Regardless, the menu is just as luring, the Japanese-inspired drinks just as potent, and the ambiance still among the city’s most pleasant. A few intriguing meals– such as fried rice with decadent bacon XO sauce and charcoal-grilled seasonal veggies– have been added to the skewer-centric menu, however thankfully the rightfully famous KFC (” Korean Fried Cauliflower”) and sweetcorn tempura– stay.
