With a whole host of restaurants and cocktail bars in Hong Kong under their group –including Michelin-starred restaurant Duddell’s, popular Bali import Kaum at Potato Head, Italian staple 208 Duecento Otto and much more — JIA has a lot to offer. And thanks to their latest initiative, JIA Everywhere, this can now be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. The new initiative will bring customers a range of cuisines with tailored dining experiences from their venues. Think customised delivery, catering sets, meal box delivery, and even “Chefs at Home”. Ahead, we break down what’s available and what the best bites to order today are.
Meal Box Menus for Home or Office
Whether you’re working from home or at the office, lunch dilemmas are settled easily with JIA Group’s new series of gourmet meal boxes that are incredible value for money. Delivered directly from some of our favourite restaurants including 208 Duecento Otto, Chachawan, Duddell’s, Mak Mak, Meen & Rice, Old Bailey, and Kaum at Potato Head, lunchtimes are certainly looking up.
Highlights from the offering include: Jiangnan restaurant Old Bailey’s choice of five different combinations with dishes such as Wok-fried gongbao prawn, Crispy chicken, and a vegetarian Organic mapo bean curd in spicy sauce; 208 Duecento Otto’s authentic Italian pastas and pizzas including Pappardelle wagyu bolognese, Napolitana Pizza and more; and one-Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Duddell’s menu options, with Dim sum platters, Soya chicken with rice and Braised vermicelli with minced A4 Wagyu, that change every two weeks.
Orders: must be made 12 hours in advance (post 6pm orders will be processed the next day); made online www.jiacatering.com/mealbox or WhatsApp at +852 5723 5668
Pick up: small orders (1 or 2 meal boxes) from the restaurant
Deliveries: require a minimum spend per restaurant with free delivery to Hong Kong Island and an additional charge for Kowloon and New Territories
Bespoke Catering and Customised Delivery
Since events and occasions have recently acquired a more private and indoor format, it has become apparent that we need suitable catering options to entertain. Thankfully, JIA Group’s tailored-made packages will suit events of all sizes and for any occasion. Bespoke catering also includes the expertise of event specialists to create and map out the entire food and service experience. The group can choose larger meal sets suited for gatherings of four people or more, which could include sharing options such as Meen & Rice’s set of Cantonese barbecued pork, Honey pepper fried chicken wings, Stir-fried beef noodles, Hokkien fried rice, and much more.
For a more personalised approach, in which you can mix and match menus according to your preference, customised delivery will allow you to order from each of your favourite restaurants. So you may like to start with an appetising Tom ka gai (Coconut chicken soup) or Yum ma muong (green mango salad) from Mak Mak, before indulging in a little all-day dim sum from Duddell’s and finishing with their Crispy salted chicken.
Orders: require a 48-hour advance payment; made online at www.jiacatering.com/delivery.

Chefs at Home
Imagine Chef Ricardo Chaneton from contemporary French restaurant Mono or one-Michelin-starred Duddell’s chef Li Man-Lung cooking up a storm in your kitchen at home. Well that could soon be a reality with JIA Everywhere’s exclusive catering experience. All you have to do is choose from JIA’s portfolio of talented chefs, cuisines and restaurants and let JIA handle the rest. The chosen chef will arrive to prepare in advance and after dinner is served, the team will leave the kitchen in its original state.
Bookings: require submission of an online form at www.jiacatering.com/chefs; confirmation will occur within 48 hours after submission
Stereo by Mono
Another great JIA Everywhere initiative to take advantage of is the delivery service from contemporary French restaurant Mono. Led by Chef Ricardo Chaneton, the new spin-off concept presents family-style dining for groups of three to four people. While guests dining at MONO enjoy a singular ingredients-driven tasting menu, Stereo by Mono offers five choices of take-out sets made to share at home. Inspired by Chef Ricardo’s multicultural experiences, the sets will include both contemporary French and Latin American-inspired set menus.
From the three French menus, the four-course meal options include dishes such as Stuffed French quail with mushrooms and petit pois, boeuf bourguignon with tagliatelle, and a veal blanquette. All of which come with freshly baked madeleines to finish. Meanwhile, the two choices of Latin American-inspired sets offer dishes like South American-style whole roasted chicken, steamed manioc and chimichurri and a house-made mole sauce. All menus are subject to the availability of fresh ingredients.
Orders: payment must be settled and order placed 24 hours in advance (post 6pm orders will be processed the next day)
Pick up: Stereo by Mono sets from the restaurant
Deliveries: available from Monday to Saturday, 9am–6pm; require a minimum spend per restaurant with free delivery to Hong Kong Island and an additional charge for Kowloon and New Territories; no refunds or cancellations
