Between boardroom brawling, bar crawling, and everything else that goes into the hectic lifestyle of this frenzied city, there are few opportunities to take a step back and just relax. Few places do the laid back beach life quite like California, so it makes sense that this centre of surfer cool is the inspiration behind Limewood, the latest venture by Maximal Concepts, the team behind Hong Kong favourites like Brickhouse and Blue Butcher.
Situated in the new The Pulse commercial complex, right in front of Repulse Bay Beach, Limewood dishes up food inspired by South East Asian, Hawaiian, South American, and Caribbean flavours in beach shack-feel interiors enlivened by design-savvy touches. The menu is barbecue and seafood heavy, with a few standouts like the Chicken Wings and the melt-in-your-mouth 24hr Charred Beef Ribs. The food probably won’t precipitate a religious experience, but it won’t blow your budget either. Margaritas are house special here, but skip them in favour of the beer list – think Tecate and Dos Equis. Limewood isn’t fancy, but kick back, relax, let the Jack Johnson-heavy tunes put you in touch with your surfer psyche, and the nonstop bustle of Hong Kong will feel a million miles away.
Because sometimes life’s a beach.
