Travellers transiting through Hong Kong International Airport now have more dining options to choose from with the recent opening of the new East Hall Food Court as well as several new restaurants.
We’ve rounded up a few newly opened restaurants at Hong Kong Airport for those seeking something a little more appetising than inflight meals.
Wolfgang Puck Kitchen
Austrian-American chef Wolfgang Puck has opened his first restaurant in Hong Kong at Hong Kong International Airport in partnership with Lagardère Travel Retail.

There are also grab-and-go kiosks.
The breakfast menu offers a selection of hearty American-style breakfast essentials like Smoked Salmon Bagel and Avocado Toast, while the all-day à la carte menu features comfort dishes with an Asian twist, such as Asian Chicken Salad, Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf and the signature WP Burger which uses local and organic ingredients where possible, according to the restaurant.

Local Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Duddell’s has opened a new outpost at Hong Kong International Airport following a flagship in Hong Kong’s Central district and a second location in London. The new eatery is located at the food court within the airport’s restricted area at the departure hall.
Travellers can savour Duddell’s signature dim sum and plates, which the eatery says are all freshly steamed, roasted and stir-fried onsite. There are also vegetarian options including the plant-based pork alternative Omnipork, which was introduced on Cathay Pacific flights in October.
Guests can also choose from a wide selection of drinks, including cold brew tea, bottled kombucha, Hong Kong classic milk tea, Yuan Yang (coffee and tea blended with milk), cold-pressed juices and beer. They can also choose to dine within the food court’s communal area or have their meals packaged for takeaway. There’s also a grab-and-go selection of “just-prepared” hot meals such as barbecued pork and soya chicken bento boxes.

Jardin de Jade
The Michelin-starred Shanghainese restaurant Jardin de Jade has also debuted at Hong Kong International Airport. The menu highlights the restaurant’s Chinese specialties with an emphasis on Shanghainese cuisine. There’s also a special “Food Pairing” menu exclusively available at the airport, that recommends select Shanghainese dishes and the best wine to pair with each dish.
In addition to good food, the restaurant also provides diverse dining experiences for guests. The interactive LED wall at the entrance displaying iconic Hong Kong scenes allows diners to take some Instagram-able photos. The open kitchen next to the LED wall is designed for a dumpling-making demonstration. There’s also an internet-connected smart table with an ordering function. Alternatively, diners can just choose a seat beside the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows and enjoy a nice view of the airport’s tarmac.

The Hiroshima-based ramen chain Bari-Uma has opened a new store at Hong Kong International Airport.
“Bari” means “very” or “super” in the Hiroshima dialect, while “Uma” comes from the Japanese word umai meaning “tasty”, so “Bari-Uma” means “super tasty”. The ramen brand is known for its homemade ramen, “super-rich” pork bone broth and thick-cut flame-grilled chashu (Japanese braised pork belly).
