About the kitchen

Kennel Kitchen is the home of a true foodie home chef and animal lover. Your host is Chef Chris (me) along with my friendly furry assistants (two dogs and two cats) and my wife who is also a foodie.

Check out our Instagram @kennel_kitchen or Facebook @kennelkitchenhk for more photos!

You will be welcomed into our cozy typical Hong Kong apartment home where you will be served classic comfort dishes with fresh seasonal produces from the local wet markets, filled with rich flavours. I will be joining you from my open kitchen where we can 'talk and share' food along with a few laughs!


(1) Due to preparation, please contact us a week in advance for reservations.

(2) We have friendly DOGS and CATS hosts in the house, so PLEASE make sure none of your guests are allergic to or afraid of pets!!

(3) I will be preparing the menu based on the "catch of the day", but you can also make special requests and I'm happy to cater for any special dietary needs.

(4) It's free corkage. You are also welcome to BYOB, just let me know if we need to prepare some extra ice for white/sparkling wine :)

Thank you for your interest!

    A local HK home cook, chasing after my food dream. I love food, so I spend most of my time learning about food! I like to eat, cook and learn about different food cultures when traveling. Apart from cooking, I love dogs and enjoy volunteering with my dogs.

This is my third time at Kennel Kitchen. Chris and his team of cats and dogs have been wonderful hosts. The food has been amazing each time which is why I have kept bringing friends for dinners there! Already planning another visit :)

BEST beef Wellington in Hong Kong! We requested for a meat / seafood meal and each course had it surprises and beautifully presented! I can't fault any of the courses that were served to us. We were extremely happy with the beef Wellington. The beef was perfectly cooked and wrapped in crispy pastry. It's really the best we've had in Hong Kong. Will be back for sure!!! Thanks Chris for the wonderful experience.

This was my first time using Plate Culture, and dinner with Chris exceeded my expectations. Both Chris and his furry friends were welcoming and friendly. Rather than a home cook serving us dinner, it felt more like I was visiting an old friend for dinner. We even got a photo with the family at the end! I went with the butcher's cut menu, and every dish came with a distinct, differentiated, and delicious taste and presentation. I will most definitely be using plate culture again. Thanks Chris!

Chris is a wonderful host and we enjoy exchanging culinary ideas with him. Love seeing Tofu, Ding Ding, Ice Cream and Coffee! They were wonderful hosts too!!!

My girlfriend and I haven't been back to Kennel Kitchen in over a year, and as good as it was then, the improvements with Chris' cooking, particularly his plating and attention to detail, have been remarkable.

We went with the seafood menu, and before we started Chris gave us a complimentary bottle of wine. The first dish was Kumamoto 2 ways, raw garnishing and rockafeller. My girlfriend who generally hates baked oysters loved this, as everything one top was perfect without over cooking the oyster. The beef tar tar, which I've had before, was so much better this time, and just beautifully presented. Then we got a scallop and cream sauce dish, which was by far my favourite dish of the night. Perfectly seared scallops on a bed of finely cut mushrooms and herbs, and a thin and crispy parmesan chip. Then there was a homemade uni pasta, with some caviar garnishing. Initially I thought this dish would be too heavy, but the lightness of the homemade pasta was the real highlight, complimenting the other heavier and sweeter ingredients. The last main dish was a nice poached and smoked lobster with some kale chips, which was a great way to end the main meal.

I've said this before, but I can't recommend this place enough. And I didn't even mention getting to play with all the great furry friends Chris has on hand. Definitely coming back with a few more friends soon

Nice good, nice chef, lovely flurries and neat environment. No reason for not going back! Thanks Chris!

Chris is a wonderful host. I really enjoyed the dinner. Everything prepared by Chris was absolutely delicious and the presentation was excellent. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and pay another visit.

Nice host, great foods, good wine, enjoyed the atmosphere. And, of coz, need not to mention the lovely cats n dogs! Had so much fun with Chris : )

I have had 5 plate culture experiences so far, while I have enjoyed every host's company and every play culture experience, I can't stress enough how Chris' food and hospitality is outstanding/ top notch. He is casual , unpretentious and amicable, made us felt right at home at his home while managed to maintain his professionalism. his food is Michelin star level. It's the definition of five star fine dining served in a warm home. And don't get me started on his fur babies. The material he cooks with is of highest standard, he is a rare gem, really no need to look further on plate culture.

Hebe T.

Fantastic experience! Food was absolutely delicious and good value for the money. Chris was very communicative prior to booking and easy to talk to throughout dinner. The apartment was very neat and well decorated with love. Extra bonus to the fluffs adding a cozy homey touch to this dinner. We will definitely come back!!!
