David Tang’s Hong Kong
Shanghai Tang fashion founder Sir David Tang recently opened the restaurant China Tang (1 Exchange Sq., 4th fl.; 85-2/2522-2148; landmark.hk) in the Landmark mall in Hong Kong’s Central district. Inspired by Tang’s eatery of the same name in London’s Dorchester hotel, it serves classic Cantonese and Sichuan dishes like golden prawns with salted egg yolk and traditional roasted duck. The sumptuous East-meets-West decor features a Deco mirrored entry, hand-embroidered wallpaper and eclectic books.
Nearby in Wan Chai, Tang just debuted Tang Tang Tang Tang (66 Johnston Rd.; tangtangtangtang.com), a shop whose name references Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. Quirky color choices like taxi yellow add whimsy to the sophisticated spaces designed like an HK apartment—living room, dining room, bathroom, bedroom, dressing room—with everything for sale, including TTTT-labeled clothing along with antiques from Tang’s own collection. Irresistible souvenir: a set of Chinese calendar pajamas ($3,200).
