“Good nachos, great ribs and excellent beer selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We had dinner last weekend at The Hop House Pub & Grub, which can be found at the Causeway Center in Wan Chai, not far from the HK Exhibition and Convention Center. This is a member of the El Grande Restaurant Group and carries the same menu as other establishments they operate around the city like Hong Kong Brew House (LKF), East End Brewery (Causeway Bay), Slims (Wan Chai) and Fatt's Place (TST).

This was our first meal at The Hop House and we found it to be pretty much the same as its sister bars around the city, carrying an excellent range of draft and bottled beer and generally good American bar food. On the night we tried our standard Nacho order (HK$100) that was as expected, good amount of cheese, with a small side of guacamole and sour cream. Overall, a good batch (rating 3 of 5) what we expect from El Grande bars.

Next, we tried the short rack of ribs (HK$138), which were very good. The meat slid right off the bone and went well with the slightly tangy bbq sauce. In short, they got the ribs right, something not often said of restaurants in this part of the world. Overall, not the best ribs in the world but pretty much as good as you'll find in Hong Kong (rating 4 of 5) and at a decent price.

Overall, we quite liked The Hop House. This area of Wan Chai is a bit quite and relaxed. We didn't care for the traffic coming off Gloucester Road, which ran right below us but that was ok in the end. The noise wasn't too loud to affect our conversation. The food was predictably good and we always enjoy the wide drink selection at the El Grande Groups establishments, including the Hop House. Well done, Hop House. We shall return.
