Moreish & Malt in Kwun Tong Hong Kong is a charming American bar and grill. Located on the corner of Hung To Road and Tsun Yip Street near the Dorset Hotel, you’ll find this cosy hidden gem serving up a whole host of delicious dishes that you’ll definitely be wanting to try. Taking its name from the colloquial term ‘moreish’, meaning something tasty you want more of, and ‘malt’, a key ingredient in distilling beer, it’s the perfect blend of a fine dining restaurant and a casual bar. From set lunch menus through to steaks, seasonal dishes and an extensive list of handcrafted cocktails – which have been lovingly paired to the food – there is something for everyone here. Well worth a trip to the factory district, Moreish & Malt is open until late and housed within the Howard Factory Building. Bookings are essential.
Kwun Tong is famously the warehouse and industrial district of Hong Kong, and not the type of place you’d think to go and find a buzzing American bar and grill. But here we are with Moreish & Malt, the very definition of a hidden gem. Open from lunch until late, you can pop in for a quick meal during the day or come at night to relax with a beer or cocktail – or both. Sitting on the corner of Hung To Road and Tsun Yip Street surrounded by a mix of new office buildings and old factories, you can’t help but be charmed by this diamond in the rough.
Moreish & Malt specialises in American-style food, so you’re going to find a great selection of steaks, burgers, buffalo wings and even a few Mexican inspired dishes like quesadillas and nachos. All their desserts are made from scratch and we can’t get enough of the mango trio mousse cake. It’s seriously mouthwatering. Hong Kong’s Kwun Tong district might not be your first thought when it comes to premium dining, but with Moreish & Malt, it really should be. Popularity is growing as more and more people find out about it, so to avoid disappointment make sure you reserve your table in advance.
