Sabor simply means flavour in Spanish, and it’s all about Spanish flavour – and flair – at Hong Kong’s latest Iberian eatery, Sabor Spanish Touch Private Kitchen. Located six storeys up in the Cheungs Building on the eastern end of Wing Lok Street in Sheung Wan, Sabor Spanish Touch Private Kitchen is a concept that goes beyond mere restaurant dining; moreover, Sabor brings the lust for life that Spaniards best express when socialising with friends, indulging in good food and good drink.
Signature dishes from Sabor Spanish Touch Private Kitchen include the incredibly popular suckling pig and garlic shrimp dishes – Iberian delicacies that are, unsurprisingly, winners among the Sheung Wan’s culinarily curious. Then there’s grilled cuttlefish, lobster and mixed seafood paella, eggs benedict with portobello mushrooms, stuffed squid sauced in its own indigo ink. It’s these kind of fresh, Basque-influenced dishes that are taking Hong Kong’s foodies by storm, bringing them up to the sixth floor of the Cheungs Building, on the corner of Wing Lok Street and Des Voeux Road Central, in droves.
The true test of a restaurant’s mettle is, at base, the ingredients used. Sabor Spanish Touch Private Kitchen goes the extra mile to ensure the authenticity of its Spanish and Basque dishes – so far as to buy up select ingredients and meats from Mercat La Boqueria in Barcelona. No wonder, then, that Sabor Spanish Touch Private Kitchen is fast becoming Hong Kong’s most feted high-rise Spanish restaurant. Needless to say, this eatery in Cheungs Building on Sheung Wan’s Wing Lok Street is often booked out – being ideal for large groups and private parties, it’s essential that your reserve your table well in advance.
Excellent food, Great Service. It's not easy to find a Spanish restaurant in Hong Kong that delivers the true authentic taste. Will definitely go again!
Very friendly staff and tasty food. The desserts were impressive. The background music they played was also nice. Venue is not luxuriously decorated but cozy. A bit small and could hear what people at the next tables were talking about (and vice versa obviously). There were two large groups last night but luckily they were not noisy or it might be annoying. Try your luck. Overall recommendable.
Food was good, especially Tapas and suckling pig. Tom was very helpful and attentive. Sangria was delicious but too strong for us. Will definitely go back again.
