A trio of exciting new drinking and dining destinations arrive at Hong Kong’s BaseHall
Who doesn’t like a little variety, especially when it comes to that fleeting moment of release we can the lunch break or when you’re trying to grab a cold one at the end of a long day? The tantalising choices, the mounting expectations, the break from the mundane – for many of us, lunchtime and happy hour are highlights of the day. Fortunately, Hong Kong food court concept Baseball is all about variety and as if to prove a point, it’s added three new eateries to its hallowed halls.
Building on its mission to support local culinary talent, the Jardine House foodie hub has welcomed Francis as its newest outlet. At the new outlet, Israeli chef Asher Goldstein will present a host of insightful dishes inspired by the street food of Tel Aviv, with rotisserie meats such as za’atar spiced chicken served with moudadara, spiced rice with lentils and caramelised onions; and beef short rib shawarma taking the limelight.
Diners can also enjoy Manti dumplings, with either a lamb or vegetarian filling, served with yoghurt and grated tomato, as well as the signature Sabich, a Jerusalem sesame bagel with fried eggplant, potato, hard-boiled eggs, and harissa, one of several plant-based dishes on offer. Look out for Francis’ three course set menu (HK$160pp ++), which includes a bagel with a choice of meze, a main course and a dessert.
In addition, PUB 1842 by Young Masters has extended its comforting yet contemporary take on a traditional public house with Grub 1842, a new rotating culinary pop-up concept from Pub 1842 that begins its tenure at BaseHall with a gourmet take on Mac & Cheese. Diners can choose from one of four decadent options – from the Classic Mac, with its indulgent combination of gruyère béchamel, mozzarella, garlic panko, and egg yolk to the highly original Black Mac, featuring squid ink, gruyère béchamel, mozzarella and hotaru ika.
Those with more of a sweet tooth might like the Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cannoli by Holy Cannoli, best matched with the beers of Pub 1842 as well as its new selection of natural wines provided by La Cabane.
Finally, BaseHall Bar is being revamped with a new wine bar concept, WineHouse by BaseHall Bar. Introducing an extensive, highly curated collection of wine from all over the world, WineHouse by BaseHall Bar offers wine by the glass from HK$35, with labels ranging from traditional vintages to a unique selection from Japan. Also look out for sparkling sakes and a refreshing cocktail menu for that all important post-work drink.
Because variety is the spice of life.
