Expert review of Jimmy's Kitchen
As much a fixture of Hong Kong as the Noon Day Gun, dim sum and shouting into your mobile phone, Jimmy's Kitchen started life in 1928 and has cunningly resisted changing almost everything except its prices ever since.
There is lots of solid nursery food, from nurseries in Britain, India, China and elsewhere. No flights of fancy or celebrity cheffery here. Just decent food, hot on the plate in front of you. What more do you want?
I always feel like I am about 11-years-old and being taken out for a treat here by an indulgent uncle - it's delightfully, refreshingly old fashioned, and harks back to the days when restaurants built up and relied on their reputations rather than getting a public relations company to do it for them. Having lived here for some years, and witnessed a fair few changes, it's lovely to come back on a regular basis to Jimmy's, where so much is always the same.
Three words say it all: well worth tipping.
Smack in the middle of Central, it's roughly equidistant from the MTR and Lan Kwai Fong.
Three courses should still land you on the right side of HK$500.
Also in Kowloon.
