In Hong Kong lifestyle concept store Lost & Found – operated by the design company Homeless – FULL/half is an impressive location to dine on gourmet cuisine and sip on premium coffee. Immerse yourself in a place like this for long enough and it comes as no surprise when you find a cafe and restaurant like FULL/half buried eight floors up in The One tower along Nathan Road, one of Tsim Sha Tsui’s most prominent landmarks. What is surprising is that here you can opt for either full table service and dine on refined European cuisine and tea sets or get cosy in the cafe space for a simple cuppa – the house blend is sourced from the best beans from Indonesia, Guatemala and Ethiopia – and a slice of Black Box Cake. Whichever way you go, you’ll never feel like your glass is at 50%!
Take a look at FULL/half’s Valentine’s menu!
FULL/half is a cafe and restaurant offshoot of lifestyle concept store Lost & Found, not hard to find once you make your way to level eight of The One in Tsim Sha Tsui, just next to the retro Broadway cinema. Just like the store, FULL/half’s curious concept is designed to suit those with a taste for eclectic design – allowing customers to go half-and-half with a cup of coffee and cake in the cafe or go the full nine years in the semi-separate restaurant – with a chic open kitchen design – that’s kept under the capable curatorship of the same heads that run Basement Restaurant in Central. Starting small, the ‘half’ cafe menu offers quality coffee and iced drinks, smoothies and juices, organic teas, and some of Hong Kong’s most delectable desserts.
Shifting gears to the whole hog at FULL/half introduces you to superb dishes with a distinct European emphasis presented as an a la carte menu or – and we recommend going this way – on set brunch, lunch and dinner menus. Luxurious brunchers might want to try the grilled and well-marbled Australian striploin with over-dried tomato and poached egg, organic risotto with braised ox tongue for lunch, or the pan-roasted saikyo miso black cod with French beans and fennel for a European-Far East culinary connection come dinner time. Alternatively, reserve a spot for an afternoon tea indulgence – quintessential cakes, homemade waffles, canapes, and tea glorious tea. And if you’re impressed with the furnishings (you will be), you can actually purchase them for yourself over at Lost & Found. A bold new concept in Hong Kong and Tsim Sha Tsui’s vibrant restaurant scene, FULL/half demands committed diners to reserve their tables at their its Nathan Road premises now!
