From tees to totes, look for these restaurant-branded items the next time you visit

The restaurant industry is in crisis mode. With new policies implemented to limit seating and occupancy during dining intervals, establishments are exploring all avenues in order to stay afloat. As United We Dine helps drum up business, there is more than just showing up that we can do to help our favourite restaurants, including purchasing dining vouchers for future dining opportunities as well as restaurant merchandise. Here are some restaurant merchandise we are in love with this season.

Nhau

Vietnamese eatery Nhau is launching a limited-edition homemade sriracha hot sauce made by executive chef Que Vinh Dang. The hot condiment is made with a number of chillies including the fiery birds eye chilli, combined with premium quality fish sauce and fermented for 10-14 days. The chilli sauce is then smoked with wood chips before bottling in squeeze bottles. Nhau's smoked sriracha sauce is limited quantity and is priced at HK$100 for a 240ml bottle. The hot sauce will be available for pick up at the Sheung Wan Vietnamese restaurant.

Yardbird

This modern yakitori restaurant has had a very established online shop since its beginning. The web-shop showcases a wide variety of branded products from kitchen towels to socks, but the pièce de résistance remains the clothing line, which includes everything from sweatshirts to tees that are available for the restaurant’s die-hard fans. Tees are priced from HK$300 each. Guests can also purchase a copy of the restaurant’s Phaidon-published cookbook ‘Chicken and Charcoal’ from the online store

Little Bao Diner

You have seen them on the restaurant’s staff, and most notably sported by chef-patron May Chow at food events and appearances. Aside from deliveries and monthly limited-edition baos, May’s Little Bao Diner tee is also popular among fans. The tees come in adult and child sizes with a choice of two colours, black or white. For more information check out the restaurant’s official website here

Shady Acres

Aside from food and wine delivery to the Central and Soho area, the popular bar on Peel Street is adding fashion to their list of strengths. Inspired by metal brand Metallica, Shady Acres’ black tee is a minimalist effort to promote the bar with an understated style. The tees are currently only available in-store, but the bar is working on delivery options for the near future.

Proprietor Gregoire Michaud has been instrumental in growing Bakehouse’s new items and updated dine-in menu and even with less traffic, sourdough egg tarts and croissants are still flying off the shelves at the ever-popular bakery restaurant. In addition to sweet treats, guests can also purchase the bakery’s own tote bag, a truly off-menu item. The tote bag features a deep shade of periwinkle with a longer design to fit a standard baguette. The sturdy canvas bag is available on request at the restaurant, and is priced at HK$100 each.
