Incredible, that’s the best description that I can give Mr. and Mrs. Fox. Occupying three floors of the Taikoo Place Apartments, Mr. and Mrs. Fox is the talk of the town. Each floor has a distinct menu that caters to a different dining experience. The ground floor, Mrs. Fox, serves mostly burgers, fries and food thats goes really well with a cold brewskie. The second floor, Mr. Fox, is a finer dining experience. This floor serves awesome steaks, snapper and free range chicken styled with the utmost care for the attention to detail and culinary craftsmanship. We haven’t been to the third floor yet, so we can’t tell you on what’s on the menu. We’ve read that it is a private dining area that seats up to 24 people.
So how does the place look like? It has the feeling of a rustic Irish old-school pub enamoured with modern furnishings on the ground floor. The second floor is a beautifully renovated meat shop, lined with meat hooks and industrial lighting. We went to Mr. and Mrs. Fox with John, Tina and their son Juanzo (the Villavicencios), one of my closest friends who resides in Hong Kong. To our shock, it would seem that Tina is a regular client of Mr. and Mrs. Fox as the restaurant’s staff knew her well.
The photos taken below are from my Leica Q with a slight alignment adjustment in Capture One Pro 9.03.If you notice, there’s not a single photo of the dishes that were served. While this place is known for their steaks, we didn’t have a chance to photograph it as we started to enjoy it already. The 100% Rangers Valley pure Black Angues 22oz bone in ribeye lined with peppercord and tarragon is a must to order in Mr. and Mrs. Fox, hands down. You cannot go into this restaurant without ordering it. You will thank us later for this recommendation. Considering the price, the location and that we were in Hong Kong, that ribeye was just fantastic. Even the garlic mashed potatoes side dish was excellent and could stand alone on its own. We also ordered the grilled snapper with Balinese spices which we also went crazy on. Later on, Tina whispered to one of the restaurant’s staff to order dessert. It was a surprise when we saw it. It was a huge salted caramel cake with banana’s and chocolate. They poured alcohol on it and set it on fire! This was to caramelized the cake even further. I was always a sweet tooth and wouldn’t let this escape. we just gulfed it down.
While we didn’t see the bill, we estimated the total investment (I don’t call it damage) would be probably around 10,000 pesos for the five of us. Considering the size and serving of all the dishes as well as that we were in a pretty posh restaurant, I’d say it is worth every single peso. If you are in Hong Kong, do not miss out on this place and make a reservation immediately! Mr. and Mrs. Fox is located at 23 Tong Chong Street, Quarry Bay. You can take a train Quarry Bay or Tai Koo.
