Just down the road from The Hart hotel is Fatt’s Place, a bar with a decent beer selection, good food choices, and quite well priced.
I visited Fatt’s last time I was in Hong Kong and, as I had to check out of my hotel at 1pm and wasn’t flying out of Hong Kong until midnight, I decided to pop in for lunch and a couple of beers so I didn’t get wet during the passing rain.
The bar itself is quite small. Maybe 15 metres by 15 metres and probably has less than 25 tables. It opens directly onto Hart Avenue. At the back is the bar and to the right the kitchen. As is normal there was table service.
For my meal I decided on a Chow Yun burger which is a 150g beef burger with guacamole and hickory smoked bacon.
The real surprise is the beer list, how extensive it is, and how good the beers are!
I started off with a bucket of refreshing Hoegaarden as it was warm (29) and humid due to the rain. It was only then that I noticed other tables ordering some more “exotic” beers and decided to go a little more up market.
I then settled down for a couple of Duvel’s and a Chimay Blue before deciding that I needed to stay sober enough to get to the airport for my flight to Paris.
The beers were superb and the burger tasty and filling and the prices for the burger and beer was very reasonable.
