Song of Italy

Can you re­mem­ber the last time you had a steak din­ner in Hong Kong for less than $500 per per­son? Yeah nei­ther could we—un­til, that is, we stopped by Cadenza (10/F, D2 Place, 9 Che­ung Yee St., Lai Chi Kok, 2743-8055), the new Ital­ian arm of LCK’s pri­vate mem­ber’s club, and en­joyed a juicy, grade A pre­mium aged rib­eye for roughly half the cost of other big-name steak­houses in town. If that’s not rea­son enough to cross over to the Dark Side, then how about deep-fried arancini balls stuffed with beef cheek ragout, black truf­fle spaghetti, or thinly pounded scal­lops dressed with diced ap­ple and truf­fle oil? Fine din­ing Can­tonese restau­rant Man Hing at Greater China Club proved its pedi­gree ear­lier this year with stel­lar, stand­out dishes; and now with the ad­ja­cent jazz lounge turned into a ca­sual Ital­ian restau­rant, we’ve got a new ex­cuse to head to this neck of the woods. With cock­tails priced at $88, a range of de­li­cious desserts—in­clud­ing a cheeky Cadenza “egg” with a mango purée re­sem­bling the yolk—and a live jazz band at night, we’re putting this firmly on our list of Kowloon places that are giv­ing the Cen­tral giants a run for their money.
