Experience the vibes of Tokyo’s night food scene as you explore the hidden alleyway secluded from the bustling streets of Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong.
Tucked away in a backstreet alleyway near the end of the Lan Kwai Fong strip, Roji – named after the Japanese word rojiura, meaning alleyway – is a walk-in only restaurant and bar offering Japanese food with a touch of French influence. Dishing out fun casual vibes with light bites and creative cocktails to the beat of old school RnB, soul, and hip hop, Roji has a dining room with table seating and high countertops, a slick bar, and a semi-outdoor space with benches to perch on.
Food wise, the menu offers a range of dishes with small bites, starters, hot plates, mains, desserts and rice boxes. Highlights include plump cuts of scallop, an oily hamachi dish topped with salmon roe, grated bottarga and crispy garlic chip, and a crunchy deep-fried chicken katsu.
The menu also offers loaded mini-sized rice pots filled with wagyu or seafood. Wash it all down with a classic highball, saketini, or fruity Kinome cocktail.
