To say Hong Kong has pent-up energy from 16 weeks of its toughest pandemic restrictions yet is putting it lightly—if the throngs of people that flocked to every outlying island and hiking trail over the Easter long weekend proved anything. The restaurant industry is preparing for the same influx when dinner restrictions finally lift tomorrow, providing a much needed lifeline to many F&B businesses on the verge of shutting shop for good. As we get to grips with a return to a semblance of normality, the Tatler team are already thinking of where to soak in the renewed novelty of dining out after dark. From cooked food markets to steakhouses, keep reading to find our where our editors are heading after 6pm.

Chilli Fagara

It’s almost impossible to name just one place I can’t wait to visit when restrictions ease, as I’m desperate to return to all of my favourite haunts in Hong Kong—Cornerstone, Little Bao, Samsen... the list goes on. That being said, I’m really looking forward to a meal at Chilli Fagara. The restaurant offers an extensive selection of authentic Sichuan dishes including my coveted pork and vegetable dumplings in chilli sauce, and mains such as fresh mushrooms in spicy broth, and homestyle ma po tofu. The cosy vibes and attentive staff add to the charm of the place. I'm really looking forward to dining there with friends!
