bayta hk review - healthy happy hour in hong kong

Created by the Executive Chef Pauline Steiner (a vegetarian herself!), the colourful dishes are full of flavour and pair perfectly with a wide array of wine. Though I’ve always been more of a red wine drinker, the Sylvaner (2014, Mouton Bleu) was a white wine I’d definitely order again (and again for good measure…).

Whilst you’re sipping away, order a sharing mezze platter to get you started. We couldn’t get enough of the Burned Eggplant Caviar. With chopped pistachio crumbled generously over the top and a warming charcoal fragrance, it was an ideal blend of textures and tastes. Next up was the Beetroot Hummus. As someone who’s not (yet!) a beetroot fan, I was pleasantly surprised to find this rich, velvety dish a table hit!

For mains, I’d recommend checking out the fish of the day. Bayta prides itself in offering only non-farmed, ethically caught fish. The red mullet had a particularly fresh (almost prawn-like) taste, complemented by a creamy mushroom and almond sauce, fregola sarda risotto, and topped with crispy Parmesan flakes. If you’re going for a vegetarian option, the carb-free veg couscous (made from finely chopped celery) is packed with a summery, tangy flavour.

Bayta healthy dessert restaurant review

We couldn’t leave without sampling the homemade Lemon tart with avocado ice cream. The sharp citrus taste was balanced with a buttery, crumbly base. As a dessert with a low glycemic index, it offered a healthy alternative for those who crave something sweet at the end of each meal (yes, I am talking about myself).

Sassy Mama Tip: Make the most of it and head over for the buy-one-get-one-free happy hour offer from 5pm to 7pm every Monday through Friday. Bayta offers red, white and sparkling wines recommended by the in-house sommelier every week, and glasses start at $80. You read that right: it evens out to a happy hour full of $40 glasses of natural, organic wine! We’re more than ready to cheers to that!
