HAPPENINGS HONG KONG AWARD-WINNING SUSHI In late March this year, Hong Kong welcomed Sushi Saito, the first overseas branch of Tokyo’s three Michelin-starred restaurant. Housed on the 45th floor of the Four Seasons, the restaurant serves the freshest seasonal seafood, hand-picked by Chef Takashi Saito himself every morning at Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market before it is transported to Hong Kong. It is this care and attention to detail that has made Sushi Saito the “best sushi restaurant in the world” according to most diners. Just like the outlet in Tokyo, this Hong Kong outpost successfully preserves the highly-respected Japanese culinary art form with its authentic Edomae sushi. With its intimate setting made up of two separate dining rooms, which sits groups of eight at each time, getting a seat at Sushi Saito can be difficult. But if you’re fortunate enough to find yourself at a lunch or dinner sitting, then rest assured you’ll be treated to an out-of-this-world dining experience delivered by one of the true masters of Japanese cuisine. 45/F, Four Seasons Hong Kong, 8 Finance Street, Central, Hong Kong, opens daily 1pm-1.30pm; 6pm-8pm, HOLE IN ONE When there’s a need to escape the busy confines of Hong Kong, Strokes may well be the place for it. The F&B outlet on Fashion Walk on Causeway Bay isn’t your typical watering hole as it merges an indoor minigolf course with a bar and restaurant. Billed as a premier Crazy Golf & Lifestyle Club, Strokes boasts 9,000 square feet of space, which consists of a 9-hole course featuring loop-the-loops, tunnels, and ball jumps; along with a bar and diner. Although most patrons come here to sink putts and play a round or two, Strokes also serves up a pretty hearty and healthy menu with offerings such as protein salad bowls, cauliflower beef burgers and steak tacos. Its bar, on the other hand, is manned by skilled juicers, baristas and mixologists, who are ever ready to serve up a variety of thirst quenchers at all hours of the day. G2-3, 1/F, Fashion Walk, 9 Kingston St, Causeway Bay, opens Mon-Fri, 11.30am-1am; Sat 11.30am-3am; Sun, 11.30am-11pm, SPOTLIGHT Celebration of Dance The Hong Kong Ballet Company is putting on a creative showcase with the help of some of the best local choreographers and artists.

The event will boast seven world premieres and each show will culminate with a screening of Oliver Shing’s documentary, The Unheard Beat, which reveals the sweat, passion and drama behind the creative dance process. 13-16 September, Studio Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, 128
