Sultry Shanghai-inspired interiors give Mott 32 a dramatic sense of occasion. Excellent dim sum is served at lunchtime – highlights include the kurobuta pork, quail egg and black truffle, baked Wagyu beef puff and fried chicken, prawn and taro croquettes – while in the evenings, the Cantonese menu specialises in signature dishes from Sichuan and Beijing. The focus is on farm-to-table cooking using traditional recipes. The Peking duck is also good – but it must be pre-ordered. For those who aren’t in the mood to linger, there’s a chic bar area for after-work drinks and dim sum bites.
Below its soaring skyscrapers, the streets of Central are lined with luxury boutiques, upmarket malls and stellar restaurants. Notable landmarks here include Government House, Hong Kong City Hall and Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre.
