Fete Up brings new healthy lunch options to Sheung Wan
Located on the Sheung Wan end of Wellington Street, Fete Up is the latest lunch spot to get our mouths watering.It serves up a selection of wholesome and nutritionally balanced dishes that are perfect for people on the go. For just $78, pack your box full of freshly prepared, flavourful proteins, carbs and sides with just the right proportion of macronutrients. They’ll change the menu every few weeks but current dishes include braised beef in red wine sauce, kashmiri curry, and a savoury vegan mince that perfectly complemented their organic coconut rice. Vegetable sides include braised daikon, a slightly spicy Sichuan cauliflower, and roasted pumpkin and kale. Top off your box with one of Fete Up’s garnishes – crispy shallots, sesame seeds or nori – for some extra crunch. And if you don’t fancy heading straight back to work, there’s plenty of space to eat upstairs.

New farm-to-table concept at Beet
The latest restaurant in Hong Kong to build its philosophy around seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients, Beet serves up a modern take on European dishes. Chef Barry Quek draws on both classic and progressive cooking techniques, as well as his knowledge of Asian flavours, to create a menu that is both authentic and respectful of his top-quality ingredients, which are mainly sourced from organic farms in Hong Kong and China. The menu is relatively small to ensure that every dish is perfectly executed. What’s on offer will change regularly, but expect hearty dishes such as braised shortribs, Te Mana Lamb ($270) and Porc Noir de Bigorre ($360). Beet offers a two- or three-course set lunch on Thursday to Saturday from noon-2pm, or else splurge on their a la carte or five-course tasting menus on Tuesday to Sunday evenings.

Jamie’s Deli opens up in Harbour City
Jamie Oliver’s empire has expanded in Hong Kong with another offering in Harbour City. Open from breakfast until early evening, Jamie’s Deli is the more relaxed baby brother of Jamie’s Italian, with an impressive salad bar that sticks to the brand’s ethos of delivering highly nutritious meals that taste great too. We were pleasantly surprised by the prices: a small bowl starts at $68, while the large (and we mean large!) bowl that nets you three salad choices and a hot protein is $98! You’ll also find whizzed-to-order smoothies for $45, as well as a selection of sandwiches, soups, and breakfast items in the morning.
