Experience: We went to 1968 for the first time in 2016, in one of our first months in Hong Kong. Since then, a lot has changed. The interior underwent a big renovation and also the menu had a boost. Now, you will feel like you’re in a beach bar somewhere in Java. The Javanese dishes and flavours won’t disappoint you. The food is better for sharing, portions are quite big.
Kiki & Amel’s favourites: Krupuk udang, Lumpia Sayur, Bakmi goreng udang, Nasi goreng, Sate ayam kampeong, Rendang, Gado Gado, Pisang goreng.
Address: Indonesian Restaurant 1968, The Place, 139 Queen’s Road Central.
