Janiqueel would like to introduce you to a new friend in Hong Kong – BEET RESTAURANT where acting locally is a theme.

I think it’s really important to try to eat seasonally as much as possible. It helps put people in touch with what’s happening locally and with nature. –

Zac Posen

Stylishly understated in a cozy corner of Central (6 Kau U Fong), BEET restaurant is making a farm-to-table hit in the Hong Kong restaurant scene. Specializing in sourcing local produce, BEET offers up delectable dishes as stylish and understated as the interior.

With a vision to use as much local produce as possible, Chef Barry Quek creates menus that subtly introduce flavors and combinations not often found in the middle of a big-time city not usually associated with its agricultural potential. Chef Queck comes with impressive credentials — training with Joël Robuchon and stints at Les Amis in Singapore, Attica in Melbourne, and De Wulf in Belgium. Blend his experience and a desire to think globally, and act locally, and BEET offers the discriminating diner something special – especially for Hong Kong.
