Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck has opened his first restaurant in Hong Kong, although you’ll need to be in transit to try the cuisine of the famous Austrian chef. Soft-opening this month (the opening is scheduled for October 9), the chef best known for his Hollywood hotspot Spago expands his mini empire of airport outlets with his very first restaurant in Hong Kong, located in the arrivals hall of Hong Kong International Airport (look for the old McDonald’s area next to Tai Hing).
Mirror sister outing at Changi Airport which opened in 2017, Wolfgang Puck Kitchen is one of a series of successful quick and easy-going concepts (including Wolfgang Puck Express and the Kitchen Counter) that are mostly scattered around busy airport terminals across the United States, along with a few other key international locations in Singapore in Sydney.
Jet-setters may want to allow an extra hour at the airport to stop at the take-out kiosk or settle into the restaurant, serving a quintessentially California menu with an emphasis on high-quality, seasonal ingredients. The quick and casual restaurant is geared towards travelers on the go – although the comfortable seating in the cabins and bars also ensures a space you can linger in if you’re waiting awhile. Open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m., the restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, tea, lunch and late-night supper, as well as a full bar menu with cocktails. For breakfast, choose from American-style dishes or opt for the all-day à la carte menu for classic comfort foods, from gourmet pizzas to pastas and heart-healthy salads.
Wolfgang Puck’s global hotel empire includes Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group, Wolfgang Puck Catering and Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc. In addition to the premium steakhouse To cut, the celebrity of the Austrian chef is perhaps best linked to Spago, its flagship restaurant on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, which remains a hotspot for celebrities and celebrities to this day. Wolfgang Puck Kitchen is one of the concepts in the chef’s casual dining segment, which currently spans over 50 locations around the world, ranging from airports to universities, amusement parks and casinos.
