Quarry Bay is becoming more and more crowded with bars and eateries, but this ever more bustling area has one spot that for beer lovers and Europhiles will take a lot to knock it off its perch. Found on the first floor of Oxford House on Taikoo Place, FRITES is one of a family of Belgian restaurants around Hong Kong now famous for its buzzing vibe, friendly service, mind-boggling beer menu and superb food. With almost a hundred beers to choose from, this is a place where beer matching to meal courses is as serious a deal as wine is for French degustation dinners. The food on offer is diverse, from small plates ideal for bar snacks and sharing to hefty pork knuckles and a half-metre-long Belgian sausage. FRITES is never quiet so it’s always good to book ahead – especially for their great express business lunch during the week or their generous five-hour ‘happy hour’ – but you’ll always be glad you did.

Great food and staff. Eat here regularly for lunch near the office.
A good choice for western people, and happy hour too.
