Line them up and knock ‘em down, 16 Shell is here with a big range of hot Italian dishes (and some cold cuts, too) for Tin Hau locals in the vicinity to Fortress Hill station and Hong Kong diners willing to step a little out of their comfort zone in the pursuit of fine Italian cuisine. Located on the ground floor of the Po Wing building on the eponymous Shell Street in the broader Causeway Bay and North Point districts, 16 Shell is, like Botticelli's Venus, in the raw and a sight to behold.
Take a look at 16 Shell’s Christmas Eve & Christmas Day menu.
16 Shell offers all the Italian classics Hong Kong diners know and love, like pasta. But this Italian restaurant along Shell Street in the Tin Hau neighbourhood of Causeway Bay also does a lovely range of tea sets with smaller bites for the simply peckish, leaving massive knuckles of pork and the like to hungrier diners. Grab a grilled Nutella, almond and marshmallow sandwich with a side salad and enjoy a pot of your favourite tea, or coffee, for a great price. It’s not exactly Italian, but just you wait.
Lunchtime at 16 Shell means lunch set options like Cajun chicken skillet – another way this Italian restaurant in Tin Hau stretches the definition of the cuisine of the bel paese – or the healthy nuts honey raisin waffles with soup of the day and ice cream. This is the kind of culinary confusion that Hong Kong foodies love, and all these lunch sets come with half a waffle, too. The dinner set menu at 16 Shell brings in a crowd from across Causeway Bay and North Point, with appetizers including honey beans and quinoa salad and crispy chicken wings in a buffalo sauce, and entrees including sundry tomato and mushroom risotto, and the famous half waffle with fruit and ice cream for dessert.
Great atmosphere and surroundings. Food is nice and portion is appropriate. A little disappointed with the truffle pizza but overall, we still had an enjoyable meal.
