Cobo House

Tucked down a side street in trendy Sai Wan on Hong Kong Island is Cobo House, an artsy restaurant that celebrates Bohemian living – Cobo stands for ‘Community of Bohemians’. Art and artistry permeate every element of the restaurant, from its contemporary décor to its curated art pieces – personally selected and acquired by business tycoon Adrian Cheng, founder of K11 Art Foundation and head of the New World Group – to its sourced fine esoteric crafts and wares and gourmet products.

The two-storey restaurant includes a dining room on the ground floor and a secluded event space for exhibition and private dining upstirs, with paintings from avant garde artists adorning many of thewalls. An adjacent café, Artisan Room, with a lovely outdoor gardenporch area, offers the finest Italian coffees, French organic teas ad delectable pastries and sandwiches.

The menu, designed by Chef David Kim, is Italian with a Korean influence, a reflection of Kim’s own culinary roots. It also serves specialty cocktails and mocktails. The food dishes are a paragon of creativity. Dishes we tried included Homemade Beet Cheese Ravioli ($168), the succulent Hokkaido Scallops ($188/ 4 pieces), the signature Flat bread – Beauty & Beef ($328), Abalone Risotto ($258), and Okinawa Pork Belly ($328). Desserts included Pop Mountain ($188) which is salted popcorn and Soybean Tiramisu ($198); we capped off our meal with Jingdezhen’s Coffee Jug, a hand-drip and cold brew coffee from Artisan Room.

Cobo House is making an indelible mark in this style-defining area of Western District, check out the place for a combined sensory experience of food and art.
