Delicious food and great wine. The service was excellent and very efficient. I liked that the music was not too loud so we could have a conversation.
Exceptional service. The chef made amazing recommendations. In the heart of SYP. Just the right size - small and cozy. Good for drinks too or a light snack.
Great customer service and attention, but food so so... The calamari was hidden under a huge amount of batter, the tuna tarter was great as well the padron peppers. The pulpo was good but the portion was so tiny it was not really worth the price. The churros were fantastic. I would go back for a drink but not for a "Spanish" dinner.
Still somewhat of a newbie on the scene, Chico Chica is a Spanish-style tapas restaurant in the heart of Sai Ying Pun. Even from Third Street you can tell that this Hong Kong Spanish restaurant is something special, with its modern facade and sleek al fresco seating area. Inside you’ll be met with an industrial-chic design, exposed brick walls and an open kitchen that allows you to observe as the food-magic happens. Its location just moments away from Sai Ying Pun station makes it an easy choice for diners from all across Hong Kong who crave traditional Spanish eats with an Asian twist.
There are so many great options at Sai Ying Pun’s Chico Chica that you simply can’t just choose one dish. Thankfully, the whole point of eating at a tapas restaurant is getting to mix and match without having to make a firm commitment on a larger dish (that is, unless you want to). Start off with an array of meats – try the Iberico paleta, chorizo or cured pork tenderloin – and some simple, yet insanely delicious olives before diving into innovative options like the Hansburger, a wagyu burger topped with pickled ginger, the eel toast or the gourmet scallop carpaccio. Or, go big and try the ink paella for two. Whatever it is you’re craving, be sure to book ahead when planning to dine at Hong Kong’s Chico Chica.
