BEDU Lunch Combo
BEDU takes inspiration from the nomadic wanderings of the Bedouin tribes across the deserts of North Africa to the rocky sands of the Middle East. Their journey guided by the night stars has influenced the rich culinary traditions, exotic products, flavoursome spices and cooking methods that have been passed down through generations defining Middle Eastern cuisine today.
Through an unpretentious, open-minded and lively approach, whether in the kitchen, on the floor or behind the bar, our aim is to communicate our passion for the region’s deeply rooted street food culture while giving it a contemporary approach.
BEDU is a cosy Middle Eastern restaurant & bar located in Central Hong Kong that showcases the region’s diverse street food culture. From a semi-open kitchen, plates of unapologetically bold spices perfectly balancing spicy and sour alongside smoky notes and flavours from the grill make their way to the bar counter or into the main dining area. The adjoining bar produces refreshingly complementary tipples. This is a menu designed for sharing and is our interpretation of a journey through the stomach of a modern day Bedouin adapting to the seasons of their travels.
