Oddies Foodies (Read the full review HERE) – Their signature Nightwolf – eggettes on soft serve might just be the most instagram-worthy dessert in Hong Kong and you definitely will not want to give it a miss. Exclusive to this second branch is the gelato with flavours like Dark Matter (dark chocolate) and Interstellar (mango) and their frozen Jar-Letos.

Mak’s Noodles – One of the world’s cheapest Michelin starred restaurants. The texture of the noodles here are much springier than I expected and the soup is on the salty side. The beef tendon and wanton were pretty good though.

77 Wellington Street

11am – 9pm daily

Central MTR Exit D2

DimDimSum Dim Sum Specialty Store – Cheap and good dim sum. We were a little upset that the liu sha of our Piggy Custard Buns didn’t flow out, but every other dish we ordered made up for it. Other stuff we tried include the Pineapple Buns with Pineapple Custard Filling, Rice Flour Rolls with BBQ Pork and Har Gow.

23 Man Ying Street

G/F, Man Wah Building

Daily 10am – 1am

Seng Seng Pho Cha – This Korean eatery was not on my list of places to visit; I chanced upon it while heading to DimDimSum as they are along the same street. After seeing Koreans dining there, I thought I should be back another evening to try it out for myself. Our favourite there was their Cheese Corn Fried Chicken. On that chilly night, the chimaek (fried chicken and beer) we had felt heavenly.

18 Man Ying Street

Man Ying Building

Daily 12pm – 3pm, 6pm – 2am

Wan Chai

Honolulu Coffee Shop – They are most well-known for their egg tarts, which I agree are quite different from the usual egg tarts you’ll find in Hong Kong. Their version comes with an incredibly soft egg custard surrounded with flaky outer pastry crust. The macaroni with pork chop in soup is also surprisingly satisfying.

176-178 Hennessy Road

Daily 6am – 12am

Wan Chai MTR Exit A4

 

Yau Ma Tei

Unar Coffee Company Shop No. 2 – Tucked away at a corner of the pier where people travel to Hong Kong Island from Kowloon, this coffee shop is almost impossible to locate without any help. This is a great pit stop for coffee after a walk along Victoria Harbour or after shopping at Harbour City. For a unique experience, try their Iced Cucumber Latte which is quite refreshing (a bit of an acquired taste though).

Salisbury Road

Shop KP 41, 1/F, Star Ferry Pier

8am – 8pm daily

East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Exit L6

Jean-Paul Hevin Chocolatier – Not too bad, but with Laduree and Pierre Herme around in HK as well, it will be a tough fight for them.

Shop 212, Ocean Centre, Harbour City

10am – 10pm daily

Tsim Sh Tsui MTR Exit A1

 

Kennedy Town

Sunday’s Grocery (Read the full review HERE) – This grocery store in the up and coming hipster neighbourhood of Kennedy Town is brought to you by Yardbird, a famous yakitori joint in Sheung Wan. Expect western style takeaway food such as fried chicken and sandwiches made with quality ingredients. They are not as simple as a “takeaway store”.

66-68 Catchick Street

Tues to Sun 11am – 9pm

Kennedy Town MTR Exit C
