Japanese eating options around North Point got a whole lot broader after the opening of chic Yamato on King’s Road. Right by Fortress Hill MTR, Yamato is a sleek eatery with cool, dark decor and a menu that balances traditional Japanese fare with some contemporary quirks. Take, for instance, their signature Yamata ramen, a beautiful broth of sliced roast pork and stewed egg that would happily sit alone on many a menu – not here, though, because contenders like the truffle and scallop ramen or cold, refreshing version are among countless options that give diners plenty of choice. It’s not only ramen, either, with a huge variety of grilled skewers and tasty snacks, as well as elaborate afternoon tea sets showcasing one of Japanese cuisine’s highest arts. It can’t be long before Hong Kong’s hipsters and Japanese food lovers find out about Yamato, so nab a table and try North Point’s coolest new haunt while you can!
