There’s always an excuse for hotpot, no matter what time of the year it may be and especially at Megan’s Kitchen on Wan Chai Road. In a place like Hong Kong where a smorgasbord of hotpot restaurants are dotted all over the city, Megan’s Kitchen reigns supreme with its broad selection of high-quality meats and innovative broths. Some of the latter may sound odd to the uninitiated, but there must be a reason why regulars rave about the tom yum koong cappuccino and Malaysian satay soup bases at this Wan Chai gem. Why not book a table with us and find out?
Restaurants of all stripes abound in Hong Kong’s bustling Wan Chai district but among hotpot aficionados, there can only be one place. Located on the fifth floor of Lucky Centre on Wan Chai Road, Megan’s Kitchen has made it into Michelin’s Bib Gourmand list for five consecutive years – surely no mean feat in a food haven like Hong Kong. Fans of Megan’s Kitchen swear by the international selection of premium meats and wide array of homemade soup bases, which include one-of-a-kind flavours like fresh lobster borsch soup.
Waiting for the broth to bubble and boil can be an exercise in patience, so why not order some starters to get things going? We hear that the fried diced tofu in salty egg yolk paste is to-die-for, while the deep fried Bombay duck does the job in revving up your appetite for the main attraction. In a city where hotpot restaurants are a dime a dozen, Megan’s Kitchen truly stands a cut above the rest. You can easily get there by foot from Wan Chai MTR station; just don’t forget to reserve ahead as it gets particularly busy in the evenings and on weekends.
The food was good, the services were great. Variety of food was many; I had tried just hot pot this time and it was as good as expected. Will be looking forward to try more menus in the next occasion.
The food is yummy, waiters are nice, service is good and the place so great. You must try their chill soup if you like chill.
Great place for a party of 6/8 people. We loved the food especially the shrimp dumplings. Staff was very helpful as it’s not easy the first time! We ll go back.
Excellent food. Very courteous service. Book in advance to avoid disappointment. I would avoid The Sichuan sauce next time. It kills the taste. The clam sauce was good
Probably the best service I've had at a Chinese restaurant in Hong Kong. Downside was they served us some appetisers (which we had to pay for) without asking us. We subsequently received the menu which said we would be charged for them if we didn't tell them we didn't want them before they were delivered.
The restaurant wasn't very busy when we got there, but despite that the service was not as ideal as it should've been. We had to work to get their attention several times. The menu, while extensive, could do with more pictures to illustrate what the items are. It's hard for a new visitor to know what's what. It's also a pretty pricey place, makes you think twice about going back again - if ever.
Great variety of soup, meat, vegetables, dumplings, mushrooms, etc to choose from. Service is great and attentive. Price is not cheap though but you can find great value sets during lunch and late night supper.
Made booking via Quandoo, easy and smooth. Good experience at Megan's Kitchen, good food and good service. Requested the booth seat since my husband enjoys a little bit more privacy and more comfortable.
It is one of the best hot pots I have ever had. The waiter who has helped us a couple of times if very helpful. I would highly recommend eating here.
Although price is at the high side but compensated with great service, premium food & wide f &b selection. Recommended for steamboat fans. Definitely will revisit this place.
