Tucked away on a quiet side street in Hong Kong’s Sheung Wan district, this traditional Cantonese restaurant is disguised as a throwback to the 1940s Old World Hong Kong, complete with kitsch furnishings and original fixtures...at least from the outside. On the inside, The Chairman restaurant’s minimalist white decor is decidedly contemporary, where some of the city’s finest authentic Chinese cuisine is served using only sustainable, seasonal and organic ingredients: market-fresh ginger, premium soy sauce, locally raised pork, and only the finest cuts of beef. As a favourite of Hong Kong’s foodie crowd, The Chairman offers an inventive menu of dishes that changes frequently. Begin the journey with baked Sakura shrimp flavored with Indian almond, japanese basil, and sliced garlic. For mains, opt for the smash-hit steamed fresh flower crab with aged Shaoxing wine, fragrant chicken oil and flat rice noodles; or the braised spare ribs served with a preserved plum and caramelized black-vinegar sauce. If you can’t do without a dish that’s not featured on the menu, the accommodating wait staff will work with the kitchen to satisfy your palette. The restaurant also offers two set menus to be shared by the entire table for dinner, priced per head, as well as an executive lunch menu of three or four courses. This 25 seater is a hot local dining spot, so reservations, even for lunch, are required.
