Tim Raue’s Insider Guide to Hong Kong

Brash, daring and provocative, Michelin star chef Tim Raue set out to elicit a reaction – and what a reaction he’s received. After tousling his way out of a turbulent upbringing in Berlin’s gritty Kreuzberg neighbourhood, Tim earned the position of head chef at the ripe age of 23, and in 2007 received both his first Michelin star at Swissôtel’s Restaurant 44, as well as the coveted title of Gault-Millau Chef of the Year.

It seems there are particular cities especially close to your heart. We’re wondering – what’s your favourite city? And what are the top 5 spots there you’d recommend to your best friend when he or she’s in town?

Phew, there are a few: NYC-London-Madrid-Paris, and in Asia Singapore and Hong Kong especially. In Hong Kong, I can think of a few things right away.


The Upper House Hotel

I prefer to sleep at The Upper House, where the view over to Kowloon is wonderful, and the rooms are Japanese-simple equipped with yoga mats.

Lane Crawford and the Pacific Place Mall

Above all, you can drive down to the shopping mall Pacific Place which the hotel sits on top of and go shopping at Lane Crawford, perhaps the best department store in the world.

Lung King Heen

Lung King Heen is the best Cantonese restaurant in the world and worth a visit for me.


Schöni Gallery

The Schöni Gallery, run by Nicole Schöni, shows the most important living and contemporary Chinese artists making political statements.

For me, Hong Kong embodies intensity, consumerism, and great cuisine. There are also contemplative places, like Lamma Island, just a short ferry ride away, where you can hike and enjoy super fresh seafood at its seafood restaurants.
