Fatty Crab — Hong Kong, China
Fatty Crab brings a touch of New York ‘ghetto chic’ to Hong Kong with an outpost of its speakeasy-inspired cocktail bar and restaurant, serving Southeast Asian flavours with an unpretentious twist. Interiors by Candace Campos of local firm ID are an eclectic mix of utilitarian concrete, brick and steel with unique details like industrial lamps by Workstead, original graffiti and vintage-newspaper wallpaper. The ambience may be decidedly insouciant but mixologist Philip Ward is serious about his ‘Where’s Wallace’ cocktail, a heady concoction of Thai chilli-infused blanco tequila, Manzinilla sherry, fresh celery juice with lime juice and salt. Together with the signature dish - chilli crab and watermelon pickle and crispy pork - it makes this the hottest table in town.
