Where celebrity hairstylist eats in Hong Kong now he’s mostly vegetarian – South China Morning Post

Hairstylist Kim Robinson has cut and styled the hair of celebrities such as Princess Diana, Kate Moss and Anita Mui. The Australian-born hairdresser has the newly renovated Kim Robinson flagship salon in Central and his kr+ salon in Causeway Bay, and is becoming known for his art and paintings.

As time goes by, my diet is going greener. A doctor said my body was too acidic. I was having too much sugar, coffee and dairy so I changed my whole eating habit. I’m 60 per cent vegetarian now and I fast in the evening three nights a week. I’ve lost nine kilos and have much more energy.

Sevva (25/F, Landmark Prince’s, 10 Chater Road, Central, tel: 2537 1388) is my all-time favourite choice for dining because of its uber-chic ambience and extensive menu. I love the diverse range of Asian food there. I know owner Bonnae Gokson very well. She always shares with me where she gets the ingredients from. The Sevva special salad never goes wrong. I also love taking guests there.

I like One Harbour Road (7/F-8/F, Grand Hyatt Hotel, 1 Harbour Road, Wan Chai, tel: 2584 7722) for authentic Cantonese cuisine. I love the atmosphere. I’ve been going there since it opened. They have great vegetable dishes, but I love the crispy chicken, too. It’s simple Chinese food. I like going back to real and basic foods.

If I want to go somewhere chic and refined, Caprice (Podium 6, Four Seasons Hotel, 8 Finance Street, Central, tel: 3196 8860) is hard to beat. It’s pretty stylish, and some places I like because of their style.

The Chinese Library (1/F, Block 1, Tai Kwun, 10 Hollywood Road, Central, tel: 2848 3088) is interesting. I like the decoration but the music can be too loud. There might have been some teething issues when I went, as it is a new restaurant, but I did like the food and they tried hard, so I will definitely go back.

Gough’s On Gough (15 Gough Street, Central, tel: 2473 9066) offers modern British food. It’s slightly 1970s looking, and the food is damn good.

Another place I love is TokyoLima (18-20 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, tel: 2811 1152), even though it’s incredibly noisy. I love the fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisines. Great vegetarian dishes, delicious food and great service.

The Sham Shui Po district is my ultimate local indulgence. I often lose myself for hours in this eclectic neighbourhood and always end up at a local shop for a bowl of steamy hot snake soup. It goes back to my Anita Mui days, when I was doing her hair.

She took me to Shia Wong Hip (170 Apliu Street, Sham Shui Po, tel: 2728 5600) and the first time it freaked me out because of the live snakes. But there’s something I love about it and I go back every year.

My Australian indulgence is taking my breakfast outside at Bunkers Beach House (Farm Break Lane, Bunker Bay, Naturaliste, Western Australia, 6281, tel: +61 (0) 8 9756 8284). Located near my hometown in Western Australia, it looks over the crystal clear water and white sand of Bunker Bay. It’s a dynamic view. I can sit there for hours to get inspired for my next painting. Mother nature does the best decor.
