Tender slices of octopus topped with fresh okra, pork belly served with slow-roasted garlic, and stir-fried potato noodles in soy sauce. These are just a few of the dishes on offer at Momojein – a new Korean restaurant in Wan Chai. It’s headed by chef Lim Hee Won and is housed in a bright, high-ceilinged space with booth seating and exposed beams.
The Bangkok restaurant by the same name is a well-known eatery, coming in at 39 in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015 list. Now, its sister restaurant comes to Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay. Ian Kittichai, chef and co-founder of the original, is the man in charge of a menu that includes crowd-pleasers such as twice-cooked beef short ribs with a sweet chilli and lime dipping sauce.
