New American Dining Experience of “Mesquite Grilling” at
 L.A. Brasserie – Regal Kowloon Hotel

Hong Kong, July 2004 – In July, Executive Chef Jimmy will present an enticing original American menu using “Mesquite Grilling”, the town’s first cooking method to tease your palate. The creative method is the promising tip to cook tender and delicious meats with strong earthy flavour. New dining experience at L.A. Brasserie, Regal Kowloon Hotel. Come and savour some naturally inspired signature dishes including “Angus Rib Eye Steak”, “Grill Original Baby Back Rib” and “Monk-fish with Peppered Citrus Marinade”.
Mesquite is a deciduous tree, commonly found in all areas of Texas.  Jimmy introduces “Mesquite Grilling” because the burning temperature of the wood is optimum for barbecuing. “When I lived in the States, I always go to cut the Mesquite trees for grilling because I like the strong earthy flavours very much which inspires my senses. I recommend “Mesquite Grilling” to all Hong Kong people who are always exploring new tastes and styles”. Executive Chef Jimmy said. He recommends all Wood Chips Mesquite Grill Items served with our home-made wild mushroom cream or pepper gravy.

Nowadays, healthy living is fundamental to the cosmopolitan. Therefore, Jimmy specially prepared one of our signature dishes namely “Monk-fish with Peppered Citrus Marinade” to all health-conscious people. The flavoursome monk-fish is marinated with the freshness of fruits including lemon, orange and grapefruit to perfection to satisfy the dining desire of the health-conscious guests. Mouth-watering desserts include “Warm Chocolate Flan with Ice-cream” and “Fruit Kebabs with Chocolate Fondue”, which intensify the essence of this “Mesquite Grilling” delight.             

The Wood Chips Mesquite Grill Items are available between 12:00 noon – 3:00 pm & 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm from Monday to Sunday.

1/5th's Lai Chi Lounge
Where Night People Come to Flirt with Danger

The art of flirting is alive and well at 1/5. Every Thursday night the Star Street presents the Lai Chi Lounge, Hong Kong’s premier arena for the flirting in all its variety and fascination.
  Free Dita cocktails for the ladies, music, dancing, the right atmosphere, and a great mix of people are the ingredients.

  First, the drinks. Dita, for those who haven’t yet been introduced, is a superb Lychee flavoured liqueur that adds a passionate tang to the five cocktails which ladies may imbibe for free. They include a Dita Martini
  (Lemongrass Wyborowa vodka, Dita, and fresh lychee), the Dita Pacific (Shochu, Dita, Fresh Pineapple, Lime Honey), and three other divine concoctions.

  Then there’s the music, pulsing, headcandy style, seductive house, provided by top DJ Eric Byron. Nice-born Eric has played in Hong Kong’s best clubs, venues and parties, as well as venues throughout Asia. During the
  “555” tour of China in 2002 he played to crowds of 15,000, and made history with the first international “rave party” in Ipoh, Malaysia. To quote the SCMP, “DJ Eric Byron isn’t just the hottest French DJ in Hong Kong, he’s one of the hottest DJ’s here. Full Stop.”

  And finally, there’s the flirting. 1/5 doesn’t do that – it’s the province of guests at Lai Chi Lounge. We can’t even offer instruction. It’s an art one needs to master on one’s own. Some are obvious, others are subtle. But
  practitioners are assured that the ambience will be perfect.

  The Lai Chi Lounge gets going at 9 p.m. every Thursday evening. How will the evenings turn out? With flirting, you never can tell...

  1/5 is managed by Elite Concepts, one of Asia's leading hospitality groups. Elite Concepts operates a diverse portfolio of restaurants and  bars in Hong Kong, Jakarta and Shanghai. Outlets in Hong Kong include yè shanghai
  and La Cité in Pacific Place, Cinecittà, Kokage and One-Fifth on Star Street; Klong Bar and Grill (KBG) and Bebek Bengil 3 in The Broadway, Wanchai; yè shanghai Kowloon at the Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel and café mi in Festival Walk.

We are pleased to announce that S&M has opened in Old Bailey Street, Soho. 

S&M stands for Sausages and Mash (of course) and the restaurant is the first place in Hong Kong to specialise in selling a wide range of sausages made to authentic recipes from around the world.  Call us on 2140 6333 for more information.

The formula is very simple.  First choose 1, 2 or 3 of our delicious, juicy house sausages – such as Lincolnshire, or Duck and Apple from England, Merguez from North Africa, Cheese Knackers from Switzerland or spicy Debreziner from Hungary – then select the type of mashed potato you want – for example S&M Dairy Mash, Garlic and Onion Mash, or Pumpkin Mash – finally add a gravy of your choice – perhaps Red Wine, or Onion, or even Curry Sauce – and you have a delicious meal for any time of the day or night.

Prices are very reasonable too - $70 for Light S&M (1 sausage, mash and gravy), $90 for Regular S&M (2 sausages) or $110 for Extreme S&M (3 sausages).  Also, we are continually introducing new varieties of sausages, mash and gravy via the Daily Specials on our Blackboard.

As well as being a haven for sausage lovers, S&M also offers a wide range of seafood and vegetarian choices, with tasty salads, pasta, pies and quiches always on the menu.  And our General Manager, Chandan Thapa, managed Harry Ramsden’s for 4 years, so you can be sure that our fish and chips are good too.  Our menu can be viewed at our website –

S&M is located in the former premises of SoHo SoHo at G/F, 9 Old Bailey Street, Soho, Central.  The site has been fully renovated to give an informal restaurant / chop house / bar feel.  There is Carlsberg ($35 per pint) and Tetley’s ($40 per pint) on draft, together with a wide range of wines and other beers.  All wines are under $200 per bottle as well, considerably below the Soho district norm.  So feel free to drop in for a drink at any time.

S&M is open from 11.00am until 1.00am the following morning, and even later at weekends.  We also open for Breakfast from 9.00am every Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday.  So whether you want some brunch, a business lunch, an afternoon snack, dinner, or even something to eat on your way home from the pub at night, S&M has the answer.  We also have a take-out service for those in a hurry (please call in your order on 2140 6333), and can offer our sausages frozen and vacuum-packed for home use or BBQ’s.

If you like sausages, you’ll love S&M!
