Tapas are being taken to unforeseen heights over at Chico Chica, where authentic Spanish dishes are given a contemporary update by a talented team of chefs who have a passion for wholesome, delicious ingredients and flavours. Found on the ground floor of the Fook Moon Building on Third Street, Chico Chica is located just steps from Sai Ying Pun station and a stone’s throw from the University of Hong Kong, making it a popular meeting point for busy students looking to chow down on some delicious home-cooked grub.
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.
Even though the storefront of this restaurant I relatively small, the ornament of the restaurant is really decorated and Spanish. Generally, the food is really delicious. Seafood Paella is the most impression one in the dinner. In addition, the Spanish sausage is really salt, if you can not stand, be careful of that.
Food and service are just perfect. Pumpkin croquettes is the highlight of the night. Wine choice is limited but good collections, with nice wine glass. Highly recommended!
Great service by a small team that serves up delicious bikini sandwiches, pork buns, broken eggs, squid ink paella, jamon croquetas, the best Padron peppers in town. Nothing disappoints! A must try!
Great tapas, very good service and strong sangria. A perfect place for small group gatherings and casual date nights. Will definitely go back to try different dishes
i have no doubt to say I love Chico Chica for the excellent food quality, relaxing atmosphere with dim lights, and a pack of friendly buddies. Don't miss Pa tamato, cold soup, and Hansburger.
Every dish we ordered was delicious. Presentation was cute (Chinese clay pot for paella and dim sum cage for mini sausage burger). Portion was small though. I am not talking about the tapas but paella. I was expecting fry pan size but it’s a claypot 2/3 full. Nevertheless, I love the taste and will recommend the place to those who are not big eater.
Delicious food with nice service. We had brunch there, 1 drink with 2 tapas, is value for money. Hansburger and also Scallop Carpaccio which are my favorite. Appreciated their attention to details, not just for food but also the design of restaurant. Worth paying a visit!
Great tapas with a twist - a local influence that really enhances the experience. The sangria was possibly the best that I've ever had, and the staff were attentive and efficient. Definitely a place to visit!
lovely food and excellent service. Although space is small, but such a lovely place with friends and family. Only few table, around max for 20 people, make sure book your table early before
Paella served in Chinese pot is flavorful, a must try. Lots of tapas options and we like the day's special. Didn't have a chance to try the roast pork but it smell so good, will try next time.
