It is actually a restaurant. More specifically, the TOWNGAS restaurant on Paterson Street, Causeway Bay.
Yes, dear HKers, you read correctly. Your friendly public utility and sole gas provider is now cooking your food in more ways than one.
The restaurant has just had a refit and re-opened two weeks ago, according to the waiter. We did initially mistake it for a kitchen showroom as we walked past, due to the Towngas logo frosted into the windows and the clinical, Ikea-esque decor inside. In fact, the restaurant is indeed attached to a Towngas showroom next door. Romantic, n'est ce pas? It is only when we noticed a couple sharing a high tea set inside that we realised it actually served food.
The menu features classic HK pseudo-western food favourites. Being the middle of the afternoon, we decided to give the tea set a try. I am not setting out to write food review, so let me be concise: I can only assume that, as gas experts, they know more about sautéing than smoked salmon and scones. You can reliably give high tea at Towngas a miss!
