Forget a la carte dining at this Western and European restaurant in Kennedy Town, this is a la blackboard dining, Hong Kong style. The Blackboard Kitchen promises to cook the way you want it, and that’s good news for diners who want Italian, French, and Mediterranean dishes cooked for them, the way they like it! The Blackboard Kitchen is an intimate space in the Hang Yu Building along Cadogan Street with, yes, blackboards hanging on the walls from which you can order your food – the way you like it! Bon appetit.
The Blackboard Kitchen has lined its cosy restaurant on the ground floor of the Hang Yu Building down Cadogan Street, an easy walk from Kennedy Town station, with benches, stools and long narrow tables and several blackboards on which the daily selection from the canons of European and Western cuisines are chalked up. Fried chicken wings and calamari, sauteed mussels, beef and squid skewers, mixed seafood pasta, Italian sausage pasta, and French charcuterie are just some of the reasons that Hong Kong diners make their way to this Western Districts gem.
Smaller dishes like those are just the beginning at The Blackboard Kitchen – this is one Kennedy Town crew that can turn out a mean European and Western feed with aplomb. Hearty mains at this western Hong Kong island eatery include halibut, lamb chops, spring chicken, ribeye and sirloin steaks with plenty of sides. You can also book ahead for The Blackboard Kitchen’s lush set dinner menu, with example menus mixing and matching the a la blackboard selections for a fixed price per head. Especially considering the diminutive size of The Blackboard Kitchen, it is recommended that you book in advance.
