Hong Kong is a labyrinth of a city, filled with hole-in-the-wall eateries that tempt passersby with all manner of dishes and drinks. It’s one of the city’s attractions: exploring the warren in pursuit of the best bars and restaurants. If you happen to be pacing the pavements in Sheung Wan, keep your eyes peeled for the neon sign outside Lhod Lhod on Jervois Street, a vibrant grill house and bar cooking up a storm of international dishes for your indulgence.
Lhod Lhod is Tibetan for leisurely and relaxing, and that’s just the pace at this Sheung Wan, Hong Kong restaurant and bar, where grilled dishes, pizzas, and long drinks are the order of the day, and night. And when the sun goes down, it’s a simple pleasure to sit up streetside when Lhod Lhod folds open its Jervois Street frontage and let the world pass by as you get stuck into grilled Wagyu beef, drunken blue mussels, classic pizzas, New Zealand lamb or Angus steaks from the grill and more.
As the name suggests, Lhod Lhod has Tibetan heritage, and indeed there are a couple of Tibetan-influenced dishes on this solidly international restaurant and bar’s menu. Tibetan Momo, steamed dumplings containing minced Wagyu beef, vegetables and spinach, go down a treat with Lhod Lhod’s homemade condiments and dipping sauce. Chilli wings get the Himalayan treatment courtesy of a hot and spicy sauce consisting of lemongrass, onions, sesame, and fresh chilli, while a perfect side basket of fries come seasoned with fresh herbs and HImalayan chilli – one for the hotheaded spice lovers among us to really get some altitude. Sheung Wan residents are already satisfying their midday hunger pangs with this Jervois Street grill house’s set lunch menu, allowing diners to choose a starter, main, and dessert from Lhod Lhod’s extensive selection. Take it easy by all means, but don’t sleep on a reservation if you want to eat at Hong Kong’s Lhod Lhod.
