The island getaway from the metropolitan lifestyle in Hong Kong. Honi Honi Tiki at Lan Kwai Fong is the only island-themed lounge and bar in Hong Kong and every night is a busy tropical fiesta. Accents of bamboo, wood, and tropical colours along with their dimmed lights removes you from the bustling skyscrapers in Hong Kong. I would highly recommend making reservations before going. Also if you can, try and stay indoors because the outdoor fans spraying mini showers at you won’t save you from the dreadful heat.
One thing I didn’t get to try this time was their fish bowl size drinks including “Honi Honi All The Way” and “Around the World” which both cost from HKD900 and above. These massive spirits are perfect for bigger parties of 5-10 people, so I would highly recommend it. *Their drinks are also quite watered down in my opinion, so tell them to add less ice if your drink has any.
The Curse of the Monkey (HKD90) was probably the most legit. drink I had that night. The photo isn’t that clear but the cup is shaped like a monkey with a straw sticking into its head. This fruity drink is concocted out of fresh pineapple juice, jasmine syrup, Pampero Blanco rum, strawberry purée, Jax coco and strawberry liqueur.
Setting fire to drinks? Yes please with Tropical Storm with 42 Below Vodka, passion fruit purée, elderflower syrup, fresh guava nectar and strawberry purée. I can sum this drink as the passion fruit cocktail.
The Fakecation (HKD110) and the name is perfectly suitable for Honi Honi. The Fakecation is created with a mixture of St Germain liquor, Angostura 1919 8yr rum, fresh pineapple juice, fresh egg white, lemon juice and orgeat syrup. Regardless of it’s tropical look, this drink was watered down and there was way too much egg foam.
Incredibly cute shots in mini tiki shot glasses is a must get at Honi Honi. The blue one is the Tiki Stron” made of Captain Morgan Spiced rum, Wray and Nephew over proof rum, banana liqueur, orange juice and lime juice. The dark yellow is Tiki Fruity is basically a small cup of fruit juice spiked with Peter Cherry Heering liqueur, passion fruit liqueur, and 42 Below vodka.
