Amigo (Chinese: 雅谷餐廳) is a French and Western cuisine restaurant in Hong Kong. It was created by owner Yeung Wing Chung (楊永松) and his staff. Yeung's wife came up with the Spanish name Amigo, meaning "friend". It is located on Wong Nai Chung Road, Happy Valley. Some of their signature dishes include: scallop chowder, bisque d' escargot, lamb chops, Mongolian beef filet and warmed salted ox-tongue with mesclun salad.

History

The first Amigo Restaurant opened in Causeway Bay in the middle of the 1967 riots. It survived that traumatic time and continued to grow within its first year of operation, later purchasing its own premises at Amigo Mansion in Happy Valley in 1976. The mansion and the restaurant were designed and built together.

Decorations

There are watercolours by Sir William Russell Flint on the walls. There are also antique sideboards holding Christofle silver and trolleys for carving or making crepes suzettes at the table.

Owner

The restaurant owner Yeung Wing-chung comes from an entrepreneurial family whose main business was selling rice. He later branched out into the toy business and hit the jackpot in the 1980s manufacturing Cabbage Patch Kids.
