About TED's Lookout
About the restaurant
What do you get when you cross trendy industrial aesthetics with mouthwatering Mexican cuisine, homemade burgers and a lengthy list of handcrafted cocktails? Ted’s Lookout, of course! Hidden away on Moon Street in Mong Kok, Ted’s Lookout is a hip hangout, with its street art-inspired wall art, hanging lamps and exposed brick walls setting the perfect scene for a number of different occasions, whether it's a casual catch up with friends over some drinks and tapas, a family meal or an intimate dinner date, drawing in guests from all over Hong Kong. To guarantee a table at Ted’s Lookout, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
A cool industrial-chic venue nestled into a quiet corner of Moon Street, Ted’s Lookout hardly feels like it’s a stone’s throw from the throng of Mong Kok’s bar stretch. Not many Hong Kong joints do cocktails, Mexican food or mouth-stretching burgers better than Ted’s Lookout, and it’s darn hard to think of any place that does all three to this level under the one roof. The drinks here are exquisite, ranging from classy cocktails (their homemade barrel-aged negroni is a favourite) to refreshing beers, but the internationally-inspired food is what really makes Ted’s Lookout so different from the bulk of Wan Chai’s bar scene.
You can start your day off with a healthy, hearty breakfast like the brunch burrito, some porridge or an egg dishes, or just grab a selection of Mexican-style tapas to nibble over drinks (the taco selection is impressive, though char-grilled corn is a fine choice too), but to do Ted’s Lookout justice you should settle into one of their main meals, whether you go for freshly made pasta, a huge burger or replenishing salad. The secret is out the bag though, so to guarantee a table at this Mong Kok hotspot, booking in advance is advised.
