Morihachi Yakiniku’s Central outpost has at least two things going for it before you even step out of the elevator and take your seats. Firstly, Japanese yakiniku-style dining is on the up and up in Hong Kong, and secondly so is Lyndhurst Terrace, fast becoming a destination for the city’s foodies. Meat lovers are in for a treat here, and while there are several Morihachi restaurants scattered about Hong Kong, all outfitted in an authentic style and serving peerless cuisine, none are so conveniently located as this one on the downhill fringes of Soho.
The Morihachi Yakiniku family of Hong Kong Japanese restaurants likes to respect the autonomy of its guests. While the service is impeccable and attentive, diners are generally left to their own devices once they’ve ordered up their platters of select short ribs, sliced Wagyu beef, Italian-style rock oysters, ox tongue, Hokkaido crab, marinated chicken… the list goes on. But dining independence is part of the appeal when it comes to eating yakiniku-style: you’ve got your tabletop grill, your food and drink, and you’re away. A popular spot on the edge of the already crowded Soho neighbourhood in Central, it’s always best to book your tables at Morihachi Yakiniku in advance.
The look and feel at Morihachi Yakiniku Central is as authentic as the Japanese yakiniku experience on offer. Tables are arranged in an main open-plan dining area, but there are also booths and a small bar for you to sidle up to. Indeed, no visit to this hong Kong Japanese restaurant along Lyndhurst Terrace in Soho (close to the mid-level escalators) is complete without the signature Morihachi wine cooler to help all that meaty goodness settle properly. And, that said, it’s not all meat on the menu – while premium beef, pork, poultry and seafood is the main event, there are plenty of vegetables to slap on your grill and delicate salads like the black truffle, smoked salmon and cucumber yogurt salad to keep you feeling healthy.
