How lucky am I sometimes? I recently flew to Hong Kong for work. I was taken to dinner by my Big Boss at an amazing place on Repulse Bay with my work colleagues. The place we visited was Limewood Restaurant, Hong Kong @ Repulse Bay. I think this is a favourite of the Boss, as he frequents here many weekends after a jog from the city, a quick swim in the sea, and lunch with family and friends. How good is that? But why does he keep on coming back?

A quick apology for the photos – I only had the bloody iPhone, so not so good.

Well first you need to know where it is –The Pulse Shop 103 & 104 G/F, 28 Beach Road Repulse Bay

It’s a fantastic place, right on the beach with wide-open windows to the beach. It’s light, it’s airy, it’s breezy, it’s so nice. It’s surely up there in the Kennett ‘must-do-again’ list of food venues. Just for the 48 hours charred ribs, I would come back here to Limewood Restaurant, Hong Kong @ Repulse Bay – more of that below.

Holy sh!t Limewood Restaurant, Hong Kong @ Repulse Bay, without a shadow of a doubt this is simply the very best sweetcorn I have ever had in my life. I wanted to wipe myself all over with this, it’s incredible. Little chilli kick from the jerk and then the sweetness of the corn with a little charred coconut kick too. OMG, great work guys, this is a cracker!

You know me, folks, I am not a cooked fish lover, so cannot comment on the taste. Sure looks good though I have to say. None were left at the end of the meal, so that’s a good sign.

OMG – here it is, the KILLER dish; 48-hour charred beef ribs, with mango-infused BBQ sauce and toasted sesame seeds

My hands are trembling as I type this. I may need a lie down after a cold shower. Here comes the Limewood Restaurant, Hong Kong @ Repulse Bay 48-hour charred beef ribs. Holy sh!t, I tell you what this is simply to die for. I reckon I have this up there now with my ‘death-row’ choices.

It is simply an incredible hunk or the juiciest, butter-like, flavourful, charred piece of the perfect steak. Man oh man did this get oooohs and aaaahs from the table. Simply, an incredible dish!

Limewood Restaurant, Hong Kong @ Repulse Bay I love you. Just have a look at this meat. Could it look any better? I challenge you if you say yes.

Deep-fried whole snapper Thai style, with lemongrass, kaffir lime, scallion and green peppercorn

Again, not my bag, although I like the way they cooked it. Maybe steamed, then filleted to bite-size pieces, battered, deep-fried and popped back on the fish. Looking good.

We had fun with friends, we ate like Kings & Queens with a beautiful view. Food & location can’t get much better than this place in my reckoning. This is a must if you are in Honkers.

Limewood was born from a simple desire: to gather all the types of cuisines one might feel like indulging on while spending a relaxing day at the beach. The menu is also widely inspired by the type of dishes our culinary team likes to cook while they are off and spending time with their families. The menu at Limewood is influenced by South East Asian, Hawaiian, South American and Caribbean recipes and is centered around barbecued seafood and meats, complemented by creative, refreshing cocktails. In many ways, it’s a true Californian experience.

You will find Limewood right on one of the beaches in Hong Kong Island, Repulse Bay (just a short hop from downtown). Not above, to the side or nearby… Right in front of it. Whether it’s a romantic dinner overlooking the sea or just a group of friends needing a few pitchers of ice-cold margaritas and some takeaway fish tacos, Limewood is happy to serve. 

We think the beach is one of the best things about Hong Kong and we hope to make that experience even better for you… At night, Limewood delivers quality healthy and comfort food. Feel free to join us at the bar whilst you let your kids play in the sand right in front of the restaurant. With a family-friendly menu and plenty of awesome beach games, Limewood is perfect for all ages.
