Aberdeen Street Social is one of the newest bars to open up in Central, I mean in Hong Kong thats been causing quite a buzz these days. With the new installment of the absolutely adorable 1600 pandas exhibit. PMQ has been buzzing with people and well, with buzz.
Opened by entrepreneur Yenn Wong and Jason Atherton- who had much success thanks to his profitable 22 Ships (post) and buzzy new spot Ham & Sherry. Atherton is finally coming to Central- in a big way…with Aberdeen Street Social. Its a huge social house/restaurant.
Located right next to Police Married Quarters (PMQ)!! Currently showcasing the cutest panda bears!!
The duplex has an upstairs restaurant with open kitchens and the downstairs bar/cocktail service area. The interior is more on the industrial, rustic side downstairs. Upstairs is a more serene, formal setting. We opted for the downstairs cocktail area.
We stuck with the bar bites and the mixed drinks!
‘Get Lucky’ for Val! A healthy alcohol free drink….Check out her blog: THE CHOWDOWN!!! New food blog around town! And, its so pretty, simple AND full of good foodie stuff!
Bloody English for moi! Two, to be exact…Slipsmith gin, tomato juice, “Full English” spice mix, lemon, Bristol cream sherry, egg on toast ($110) I’m a big fan of Bloody Mary’s…not sure since when? But this cocktail makes me happy! And they do a good job! Spicy and refreshing.
Goat Cheese Churros, Truffle Honey ($78) The goat cheese churros were pretty bomb. Slightly crispy on the outside, and the strong creamy goat cheese (the inside goat cheese is warm and perfectly melted without burning your mouth). I didn’t use as much of the truffle honey sauce because I wanted to enjoy the goat cheese flavour!
Pulled Pork Empanadas ($102) It’s been a while since I’ve seen pork empanadas on a menu…so we jumped at the chance to order this!! Like a baked dumpling/pastry. The outside pastry was perfectly browned and slightly flaky, while maintaining the pulled pork meat inside!
Chorizo, Iberico Ham Flatbreads 6″, ($98) This was my favourite out of all the pizzas. I loveeeee my some pizzas. And this chorizo, iberico ham flatbread did the trick. The meats all added a nice spicy kick to the tomato based pizza with a nice amount of cheese atop it. Loved the dough pizza base! Not too bad at all.
I’ll be back to try the formal dining restaurant upstairs. But overall, its a nice chill area to go for drinks and catch up with friends!
