Fugazi is a cool little Hong Kong haunt specialising in the art of the Japanese skewer. The menu is fresh and vibrant, taking in meat, fish and vegetables as well as some other stickless Japanese and Asian favourites. You’ll find Fugazi in Hong Kong’s Western District – Kennedy Town, to be precise – and it’s set back just off Catchick Street. It’s a very popular spot because it manages to be both a wholesome place to eat as well as a stylish place to drink, thanks in no small part to an impressive wine list and some mighty cool beers from the tap. See what all the fuss is about and waste no time in making a table reservation today.
Hong Kong isn’t short of neat places to pick up some good Japanese food, but more often than not the menus are dominated by sushi, ramen and other such options. Nothing wrong with that, don’t get us wrong, but if you fancy something a little different, then you need to be heading to Fugazi. On Catchick Street, this is one of the coolest Japanese restaurants we know of in Kennedy Town firstly because of the vibe and the decor. Fugazi attracts quite a young crowd yet the industrial, stylish furnishing keep it calm and really rather cosy. Then, as this is a skewer joint, the charcoal wafts and meaty aromas are impossible to ignore.
Diners of Hong Kong have quite the variation of Japanese food to enjoy here at Fugazi, even though it is primarily a place for skewers. Some of our favourite sticks are the squid tentacles with a simple sea salt and butter dressing, the beef tenderloin covered with peanut sauce, then the okra, the asparagus or the portobello. Oh, and the sambal pork belly is a dream, too. On a plate, try the soft shell crab, then by the bowl the Sarawak laksa. These are Japanese and Asian flavours that you’ll want to nibble on for longer than you may expect, so book a table and head on down to Kennedy Town!
