Chris Luk Yee-sin, bar manager of Union Jacks, talks to us about the his newest venture in Sai Kung Square.
“We opened on September 5. The concept is partly British food and partly seafood. Our brand is British – fish and chips, steak – plus different types of fresh seafood for the grill. Seafood is what Sai Kung is famous for. We get seafood from the local market and offer specials depending on what is available. We also get vegetables and other produce from the market, but some of the meat comes from Britain.
“As well as the a la carte menu, we have a set lunch, afternoon tea and set dinner. On public holidays and weekends, we do breakfast and a whole roast beef that we carve for customers. The restaurant is shared ownership, with partners from Hong Kong, China and Britain. One co-owner previously lived in Sai Kung and has a lot of friends here, so he decided it was a good place for him to open a restaurant. We get both Sai Kung locals and tourists eating here, they like to sit outside.
“We are more of a restaurant than a pub, but some people just come for drinks. We have a happy hour on week days from 3pm to 6pm and draft beers at good prices. We need to perfect the food and the service, and then maybe we can look at putting in a television for live sports etc. And we are dog friendly.”
