The Hong Kong Card allows you to splurge in the city's best restaurants without having to dig too deep in your pockets...
This popular restaurant has a beautiful, authentic Middle Eastern design that creates an atmosphere of a café in an Arab "souk"...
The kitchen produces delicious Middle Eastern food with an emphasis on the Egyptian cuisine, but there are also dishes from other Middle Eastern countries (there are even some Greek delicacies on the menu...). Habibi Café , just a few minutes walk away, serves similar dishes but the atmosphere is more casual and the prices are somewhat lower...
"Mezze" are dips and salads that are served on small plates, as starters, and Habibi has a good selection of them, including Hummos, Labna, Babaganough, Moussahbaha, Tabbouleh and the likes... Recommended main dishes include the Egyptian Mussaka, Shish Tawouk (chicken shishkebab), Shawarma (Doner kabab), Kofta and Cous Cous. There are also some splendid desserts, like Halwa and Baklava.
Belly dancers perform, from time to time (especially on weekends).
