Saeki Hanten – サエキ飯店

The owner chef Mr. Saeki is a itinerant chef, he went to Hong Kong to study Chinese food as working holiday for a while, then went to Georgia and many country in the earth.

According to his word on a site, his dishes are like a staff meal in a restaurant in Hong Kong, a staff meal looks simple, however the dishes are for chefs the taste is made as the best and utilized seasonal ingredient as it would be eaten by chef who know the dishes the best.

Beef noodle soup

This is a noodle often eaten in Hong Kong, the soup is made from beef borne and noodle is very thin. Even the taste if not so strong, but good for finishment.

Shaoxing wine ice cream


Shaoxing wine – 東湖

There is a several type of shaoxing wine, available here. But I recommend that this one. This one is well balanced sweetness and rich taste, but not too strong like typical shaoxing wine, must try.

Georgian wine

Georgian wine is also one of the things you must try here, This wine is considered as the origin of wine, and still producing this by the original way.

Taste is very simple and feeling fresh, but good with Chinese food such oily and strong taste.
