Further Information

Wah gwaan, Hong Kong? If you’re looking for a taste of the Caribbean islands right here in the downtown Central neighbourhood of your island city, look no further than Rummin’ Tings, a modern West Indian street food shack that set up shop in Soho not so long ago and is already winning over critics and foodie bredren alike. Come Island Hour you buy one drink and get one free, whether it be house pours, signature cocktails (the Dove, the Tabanca, or the Ramping Shop – to ramp is to play in Jamaican patois, enuh), pitchers that punch above their weight, classic rum cocktails, beer and wine. Plus there’s plenty to find if you’re looking to nyam.

Rummin’ Tings’ Hong Kong kitchen is headed up by head chef bwoy Kristofor Olbrich, an expert at running Caribbean street food traditions through his culinary culcha dub station and coming up with top ranking recipes representing the best of Jamaican and Trinidadian cuisine. Generous in spirit, Rummin’ Tings’ small-plate format is designed to be divided among friends, with lunchtime roti with goat curry linking with bigger tings such as Jamrock jerk chicken, stuffed sole, cook-up stew, and sticky island ribs served with callaloo, Booyaka slaw and – our favourite pun pon di bikkle – Ragga Muffins. And you can nice up the dance even further – here down Hollywood Road in the Central district, Rummin’ Tings stays true to the Soho vibe and goes so far as to offer proper cigars from its humidor, rounding a superlative offering off smoothly. Small up yuhself and reserve some elbow space at Rummin’ Tings now.
