If you were looking for an excuse to explore Wong Chuk Hang – and there are many – The Factory has opened as Hong Kong’s newest private kitchen concept.
If you haven’t been over to the southside of Hong Kong recently, you’re missing out on one of the fastest developing hotspots in the Fragrant Harbour. Packed with hidden galleries, rooftop barbecue spots, private kitchens, and fascinating events venues, Wong Chuk Hang is shaking off its industrial persona and replacing it with one that’s all about making the most of space and innovation.
The newest arrival is The Factory, the creation of Jonathan Glover, best known for his culinary concept The Butchers Club (which was also one of Wong Chuk Hang’s first contemporary dining destinations). Making the most of a vast industrial space, Glover has created a versatile space that easily evolves from an intimate private kitchen for 15 or more people to a full-blown events hub.
Equipped with a professional kitchen manned by chef Brandon Tomkinson, who earned his stripes under celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, and long bar, The Factory presents endless possibilities in an era when we’re choosing our dining companions more carefully than ever.
Tomkinson will be serving up accessible yet innovative dishes, from chicken, foie gras galantine with fig jam and tomato bruschetta; to his signature ‘Carpet Bag’ tenderloin stuffed with oysters and wrapped in bacon.
Who said social distancing couldn’t be fun?
