Amazake is a long-time Japanese favourite in the Central district of Hong Kong. Named after the rice-based beverage that has been part of Japanese culture for centuries, the restaurant attempts to offer an experience of the izakaya, the informal boozing dens of inner city Japan, which provide Sake to thirsty salarymen after a day at the grind. Wander down after work to On Hing Terrace for a sake and some Japanese food, but make sure you book a table in advance.
The izakaya holds a central place in Japanese drinking culture, and on On Hing Terrace in Hong Kong’s Central district, you can experience this institution for yourself. The gist of it is pretty simple. After a hard day in the office, the Japanese salarymen head down to the izakaya for a well-earned drink, where they fill up on booze and small snacks to their hearts content, taking their fill of the menu and the bar selection. At Amazake, you can have a taste of this in Hong Kong.
The sake is important at Amazake, and their selection is understandably extensive. The drinks are the jumping off point, and the menu at On Hing Terrace is designed to complement it, with plenty of meats and fish that are perfect for accompanying a boozy evening. Hong Kong’s Central area is filled with plenty of places to drink and eat, particularly for Japanese food, but few combine them as well as Amazake: head down now to find out how.
Good experience! Good food quality and can be better for pricing, will go back again to try other dishes.
