5 places to eat hearty winter stews in Hong Kong

Winter is coming. Again.

After 2018’s balmy 25-degree Christmas, Lunar New Year promises to deliver on the cold season.

While the idea of warming up your home and belly with a slow-cooking stew over the stove is a great idea, chances are you won’t have the time.

These five restaurants serve the kind of stews that will warm your heart and soul.

1. AHA

AHA’s Mediterranean seafood stew

The latest addition to ZS Hospitality, AHA is positioning itself as an unpretentious and budget-friendly establishment. The decor is inspired by a cathedral, with arches and low lighting. The seafood stew is rich in flavour and light in texture, and after you’ve mopped up the last of it with bread, chances are you’ll want more.

2. Casa Lisboa

Short-rib jardineira stew

Portuguese stew is famous around the world, and you would expect long-time Hong Kong establishment Casa Lisboa to deliver the best. Now in its new location on Wyndham St, the restaurant has kept its menu authentic. We love the hearty short-rib jardineira stew, which is obviously good because it takes time and TLC to make.

3. Pastis

Veal blanquette at Pastis

The quintessential French hangout serves a homestyle veal blanquette. The meat is cooked entirely in the cream for a silky texture. Served with a hearty side of tagliatelle, this should satisfy any winter craving.

4. Jamie’s Italian

Jamie’s Italian, Causeway Bay, does a Venetian seafood stew.

The celebrity chef’s eponymous restaurant has changed a bit in the last year, but the Venetian seafood stew is still a perennial favourite. Squid, prawn, clams and scallops are cooked in a rich tomato, and Fiano white-wine sauce served with fregola pasta and garlic-rubbed crostini.

5. Le Pan

Boeuf bourguignon at le Pan

Le Pan is a little-known gem headed by chef Edward Voon, and he’s serving a gorgeous boeuf bourguignon on his lunch menu. Black Angus beef cheek is served with mashed potatoes and is part of a three-course menu only available in winter.
