The Leah Launches All-Day Concept Leah Cafe

Leah Cafe, a Homely New Daytime Destination
Leah Cafe’s décor, reminiscent of an eclectic English home, offers a bright and cheery daytime spot where guests will want to settle in for hours at a time. Open from morning until 7 pm, diners can enjoy Chef Sharman’s signature pies: Chicken, Leek & Bacon; Beef, Ale & Black Pepper; and Granny Smith Apple Pie & Nutmeg Custard during the day; in addition to some unique Asian-inspired pies which will only be available at Leah Cafe. The Asian pies include Roast Sichuan Chicken Pie ($65), inspired by the popular Sichuan spicy chicken dish, Pork, Chilli & Eggplant Pie ($70), Sharman’s ode to the cha chaan teng favourite – eggplant with minced pork, and Beef & Sesame Pie ($70) made with short rib, scallion and sesame oil and takes inspiration from the popular Chinese stir-fried beef with scallion. All pies are available to order at Leah Cafe daily from 11 am to 7 pm (last order at 6 pm).
From morning until evening, Leah Cafe will cater to diners for all their meals. The day begins with breakfast, the perfect option for morning meetings as well as residents living nearby who will be enticed by a lineup of appetising options including the Farmer’s Breakfast, a twist on the full English breakfast, and a selection of fresh pastries like croissants, pain au chocolat and muffins. For a lighter, healthier start to the day, Avocado Toast and kombucha will also be on offer, in addition to a variety of teas and coffee beverages. 
 
In the afternoon, Leah Cafe is the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon pick-me-up with a cup of organic coffee and freshly made selection of cakes which change daily – highlights include Chocolate Gluten-Free Cake, Rose Chiffon Cake, Mango Crumble Tart, Twist Brulee, and Marshmallow Cheesecake. In addition, from 2 to 5 pm, guests can take advantage of the special “Cake Time” offer, which pairs one piece of cake with coffee or tea for just $68, the perfect reason to indulge one’s sweet tooth.
 
For those pressed for time, customers will be able to visit the dedicated grab and go section, where they can purchase a range of pies, quiches, cakes, and pastries for takeaway. Whether it’s to quickly grab lunch for the office, plan for a party, or take home some favourite items, this convenience is one that all guests can appreciate. 
 
The Leah’s Comforting New Winter Dishes
In addition to launching Leah Cafe, Chef James Sharman has also prepared an assortment of new dishes for The Leah’s winter menu that foodies won’t want to miss. Start off with a rich, warming bowl of Butternut Squash Soup ($78), followed by two new quiches, both featuring a perfect homemade pastry that required rigorous testing to get just right. Served hot or cold, the hearty Ham Hock Quiche ($118) is perfect for winter, featuring leek, dijon, and shallot while the Goat’s Cheese Quiche ($98) with balsamic and red onion features equally bold and irresistible flavours. 
Seafood lovers will want to save room for the new Fish, Chips & Scratchings ($198), a classic English dish which has been given a fine-dining touch. After testing 20 different batters and various ways to fry chips, Chef Sharman discovered the best methods for producing a flavourful, crispy battered fish and incredibly delicious chips which are served with crushed green peas, homemade tartare and vinegar. Then there’s the Lobster Pie ($220), a high-end take on fish pie which Chef Sharman has designed to be light rather than overpoweringly rich. The dish is made with an entire lobster: the meat goes inside the pie, the breadcrumb topping is made with an olive oil infused with the flavour of the shell, and the sauce is composed of wine, white vinegar, and shell, with some onion to add sharpness and create a perfectly balanced and satisfying dish.
Traditionalists will love the Lancashire Hot Pot ($220), a very old English dish typically made with lamb cooked in a stock made from beef or lamb. Here, Chef Sharman opts to cook the meat in balsamic vinegar, which pairs perfectly with the flavour of the roasted lamb and helps to lend balance to what is quite often an overly heavy and rich dish. For dessert, what could be better than the beloved Sticky Toffee Pudding ($88)
 
Between the daytime offerings of Leah Cafe and the new winter menu at The Leah, there’s no better place to enjoy “good food done right” this season. 
 
Leah Cafe & The Leah is located at 308 & 311, 3/F, Lee Garden Two, 28 Yun Ping Road, Causeway Bay. Tel: (852) 2337 7651. For more information and updates, you can also join The Leah on Facebook (TheLeahHK) and Instagram (#theleahhk).

Chris Woodyard comes from a strong background in haute cuisine, scaling the ranks of Michelin-starred restaurants in both the United Kingdom and Australia, including heading up his own award-winning Sydney eatery. Chris moved to Hong Kong in 2008 to take up the role of Culinary Director at W Hotel, Hong Kong. Two years later, he turned his talents and focus to his first restaurant concept with Bronwyn, Wan Chai’s Madam Sixty Ate.

The duo’s newest creation offers an intriguing dining experience backdropped by one of the world’s most famous skylines. ​Located on the museum’s first floor, the 5,000 sq. ft Modern Australian restaurant makes the most of its  exquisite panoramic views.

Catering to 130 guests with uniquely tiered leather banquette seating – so that every diner can enjoy the drama of the harbour – Hue also features two private dining rooms, which cater to 26 diners, and an elegant lounge area with floor-to-ceiling windows that caters for 35 guests. Both lounge and main dining room are dressed in forest green and honey-hued birch, accentuated with cooling ceramic tile, and subtle Art Deco elements in brass and bronze.

Other design highlights include brass cage pendant ceiling light fixtures, timber pillars adorned with eye-catching undulating motifs, a bar counter in polished marble, a dramatic wine wall that serves as the restaurant’s cellar, and captivating wallpapers designs – Oh La La by renowned American abstract artist Kiki Slaughter, Mystic by Jen Merli, and Infinite Path by Stacy Solodkin – from Nordic design collective Feathr.com, an artistic brand collaborating with contemporary artists to create original wallpaper and fabrics.

Hue marries the gastronomic innovation of Down Under with down-to-earth hospitality at the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. Hue’s menus are laced with the very best ingredients, sourced from a curated selection of producers from around the globe. With seasonality and freshness at the forefront of menus executed by Australian Executive Chef Anthony Hammel, diners can expect a culinary showcase of Modern Australian fare, paired with an enviable wine list packed with Old and New World favourites.

Chef Hammel worked at Australian celebrity chef Mark Best’s Pei Modern restaurant in Sydney before taking up a role at Prime Steak House & Seafood Grill by Mark Best, aboard cruise ship Genting Dream. His first position in Hong Kong will give the young chef a chance to transport museumgoers with insightful and inventive cuisine that creates a true sense of place.

Highlights of Chef Hammel’s seasonal menu include beetroot salad with goats curd and smoked eel; raw Mayura Wagyu from Australia with yuzukosho cream and nori crisp; Hue’s Caesar with anchovies, smoked egg and vadouvan; and Carabinero prawns with smoked herring butter sauce. For something more substantial, look out for the succulent pork loin with radicchio puree and fermented blueberries; aged duck breast with quince puree and black garlic sauce; fresh market fish with abalone, served with crustacean dashi and poached winter melon; and made to share, a perfectly slow-cooked New Zealand lamb shoulder dressed with smoked yogurt and green harissa, and served with long beans with a touch of fermented chili for a kick.

For diners with a sweet tooth, don’t miss out on the likes of crème fraiche mousse with fresh raspberry, rhubarb and Earl Grey ice cream; yoghurt ice cream with yuzu curd, oat crumb and fresh mango; an ode to Chef Hammel’s mentor, Chef Mark Best, a classic 72% bitter chocolate tart served with vanilla cream and hazelnut ganache. A cake trolley offering intimate table-side service is also available at Hue to ensure the ultimate tribute to all things nice and sweet.  A well thought out all-day bar menu offering something for everyone is also available at the lounge daily from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm.

Hue will also be a destination for oenophiles, with over 100 labels – many hard to source or from boutique producers –gracing the wine list, 70 of which will be available by the glass. By working directly with producers and boutique importers, Hue prides itself on offering significantly better wine value than many other restaurants in the city.
