[Hong Kong] Grand Cafe - Best Hainanese Chicken in HK?
So I heard through the grapevine that the newly renovated Grand Cafe at the Grand Hyatt supposedly has the best Hainanese chicken in Hong Kong so I came here with J for lunch to check it out. Serving both international and Asian cuisines, Grand Cafe is opened from 6:30AM to 12AM and is popular for its dinner buffet (and of course the Hainanese chicken rice). I haven't been to the restaurant before the renovation but the space that I found myself walking into was huge and expansive with different sections allocated to separate open kitchens dedicated to Western and Asian dishes. The decor was modern and chic with lots of natural sunlight through the windows while I settled down into my seat right across from the Asian open kitchen to study the menu.
I was definitely ordering the famed Hainanese Chicken Rice with organic vegetables, chicken broth and Asian herbs and it was befitting that I was sitting right across from the Hainanese chicken food preparation area where rows of chicken were on display. At $285, the Hainanese chicken rice was most certainly the most expensive in Hong Kong but was it really the best? Read on below to find out.
Verdict - the food quality at Grand Cafe is certainly high but the value for money is not. If you are willing to pay for it, you can enjoy classic Hong Kong favorites like wonton noodles and fried rice in a classy setting for a hefty premium.
