It’s not uncommon for visitors to a new apartment here in Hong Kong to exclaim, “Oh my god, it’s a kitchen!” Yes, the diminutive footprint and skyscraping cost of the island city’s typical high-rise accommodations mean that a bit of space to lay a chopping block is a luxury. The flipside of this shoebox phenomenon is a massive eating-out culture. It’s the good fortune of cramped Kwun Tong residents to have the shockingly good OMG Kitchen up on the seventh floor of the Good Luck Industrial Building along How Ming Street, serving international and western-style cuisine to a flabbergasted audience.
Got that OMG-I-can’t-be-bothered feeling today? Feeling less than industrious and need a bit of that ‘good morning’ cheer to get you up and out and through the day? Live in Kwun Tong? Head to the Good Luck Industrial Building down How Ming Street, up to the seventh floor, and look for Room D. In there, inside Room D, lives OMG Kitchen, sure to wow you off your tired feet with food, drink, and everything in between; such as smoothies, which are between a food and a drink, a solid and a liquid – smoothies are a state of mind but at this Kowloon-located Hong Kong international restaurant the high tea will take you to seventh heaven.
At OMG Kitchen you can get mini burgers on a stick, you can get smoked salmon with spaghetti aglio e olio, Hawaii burger, classic cheese and beef burger, a clam and chilli and garlic in olive oil seafood dish, black truffle asparagus with creamy mushroom risotto. There’s breakfast express, too, popular among the workers of the Good Luck Industrial Building along Kwun Tong’s How Ming Street. However, any inspired Hong Kong diner might want to poke their head inside OMG Kitchen and say “LOL!”
