Kennedy Town is experiencing something of a boom, what with the opening of the new MTR station. Among other symptoms, Hong Kong foodies are flocking to this western Sai Wan neighbourhood to check out the hitherto less-explored eating options. Forbes Thirty Six has responded to the crowds with a revamped offering at its premises in the Luen Hing Apartments along Forbes Street. Simply put, it's one of the best sports bars in the area, with all the requisite live sports beamed above diners enjoying gourmet pub grub and a wide selection of drinks.
We’ve mentioned the boon that a new public transport link offers an area, but did we mention that Forbes Thirty Six is right opposite Hong Kong’s latest MTR station in Kennedy Town? That’s right, hop off the subway and step into Forbes Street’s best sports bar. Part of the Great Vision Group of bars and eateries, Forbes Thirty Six does its siblings proud by offering fantastic (and upscale) pub grub in a cosy environment.
The bilingual menu at Forbes Thirty Six is packed with dishes that are ideal accompaniments to the latest sports and a glass of something cold. Pork belly lollipops, burger sliders, even a classic and satisfying pumpkin soup. That hardly exhausts the offering at this renovated Kennedy Town institution. Hong Kong diners with more on their minds than starters and sharers will delight in Forbes Thirty Six’s mains – seafood linguine, lemon and herb roasted spring chicken – already making waves among Hong Kong’s intrepid foodies venturing west to Forbes Street.
