Despite its relatively remote location, Black Sheep is a well-known restaurant among Hong Kong foodies thanks to its laid-back atmosphere, great food and—yup!—unique psychedelic lighting.
And after a three-hour hike over Dragon’s Back on a Sunday evening, we decided it’d be the perfect time to revisit this long-standing joint in Shek O Village. With two dogs in our hiking crew, we opted for the alfresco seating and were immediately greeted with baskets of bread with delicious baked garlic, olive paste and butter. Next, we had the avocado and crab cocktail salad and the smoked salmon salad, which contained fresh ingredients but came in rather small portions.
For the main course, we ordered four of Black Sheep’s famous pizzas. While both the prawn and the cheese pizzas were mouth-watering, the jungle pizza proved to be the favorite. Topped with pineapple and good-quality ham, the pizza’s deliciousness could only be rivaled by its alluring looks.
But our love for the food can’t be extended to its prices, which just don’t match the venue’s hippie vibe. Charging $160 for a small-sized pizza and $110 for a salad, Black Sheep is kind of pushing the limits. We would love to go back again—but if it’s not on another trip to Shek O, there are closer restaurants of similar quality and price.
