COCKTAILS Ou r f avou r i t e f ami l y - f r i end l y restaurants in Hong Kong. F inding an eatery that ticks all the boxes for a family meal can seem daunting. Happily, Hong Kong is blessed with plenty of places with menus to please adults and kids alike, and an atmosphere welcoming of prams and other parent paraphernalia.

Here, the EL team puts three venues to the test with children of varying ages in tow, including two tweens. We’ve also listed some of our other family-friendly restos, which offer play areas, colouring sheets and special kids’ menus.

TOKYOLIMA G/F, 18-20 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, Hong Kong 2811 1152 | Within minutes of ordering at TokyoLima’s new family- friendly brunch, my daughter disappeared. She’d been lured by the twin delights of a well-equipped play area and a well-stocked sweet station, which is all part of the restaurant’s very family-oriented weekend offering. She returned only long enough to eat the Japanese karaage - style fried chicken she’d selected from the kids’ menu, which also included sushi, a pork belly bun, chicken skewers and ice cream. The uncharacteristic peace at the table meant my husband and I could make the most of the main four-course omakase (“chef’s choice”) brunch menu. TokyoLima offers Nikkei cuisine, which consists of dishes combining Japanese techniques and Peruvian flavours. The brunch starts with sharing dishes – we loved the Nikkei-style soba salad and made the most of a pork chicharrón platter. Raw-bar dishes of ceviche and sushi are offered as the next stage of the brunch – there are plenty of different flavours on offer, with the Ceviches Japones my personal favourite. Mains are then ordered from the menu. We highly recommend the tender pincanha grilled rump steak and succulent

grilled cod. The meal is nicely rounded off with a selection from the dessert station. Brunch comes with free-flow options and, if you needed any more incentives, a DIY Bloody Mary station. – MELISSA STEVENS
