Gastropub

“It used to be one of the biggest pawn shops in Hong Kong, now it has been preserved and transformed into a Wan Chai staple, request a seat at the balcony for brunch or an afternoon drink, and just watch the hustle and bustle of Wan Chai”

Tapas Restaurant
$$$
“The star of the recent crop of new tapas restaurants to open in Hong Kong, this tiny, trendy spot is packed from open to close. But the long wait (the restaurant doesn't take reservations) is worth it for exquisite, playful small plates by much-buzzed-about young British chef Jason Atherton. Molecular gastronomy techniques are on display in dishes like crispy fish skin with dollops of foamy cod mousse and the house sangria with powdered raspberry. Others, like a recent special of beef cheeks on toast with anchovy butter are pure luxe comfort food. ”

“When I use to travel to Hong Kong I would always head straight to this Sheung Wan cafe directly from the airport. Fast forward three years and Cupping Room has expanded to now four locations, including most recently a flagship Roastery space in the very trendy area of Po Hing Fong. Three years ago I noted in my travel journal how great the cup of coffee was from here. I also noted that they were leading the speciality coffee industry in Hong Kong, through coffee experimentation, education and all round coffee excellence. I still believe they are at the top of the game, headed by Friend of mine Dawn Chan - Hong Kong Barista Champion 2014 and 4th placed World Barista Championship 2015. ”

“(全世界最大的薄餅,不吃也要去拍個照吧!開至夜深,吃不下一個,可以買一片喔。就在住所的對面,太方便了吧?)Still hungry after dinner? The biggest slice of pizza you've ever seen, with all the cheese and maybe some pepperoni but mostly cheese and it smells so damn good. A giant 24" monster pizza to share or you can just buy a slice! ”
