After one week in Hong Kong, my boyfriend and I were already fond of a few restaurants (particularly some coffee shops!) and collected photos of the spots that were notably enjoyable.
The Cupping Room
A cafe/brunch location, this shop sells and serves rotating specialty coffees. One highlight on the menu is the Nitro Coffee, which is coffee chilled on nitrogen with an exceptionally smooth taste. While in Hong Kong we saw a few other cafes serve this drink, but I had never tried it before. It was very good, but a bit pricy for a day-to-day coffee (around $8 USD). The brunch menu is simple but delicious, a variation of eggs, produce, fish, etc on toast. And they do latte art, so you can snap a photo for Instagram!
Dim Sum Square
This was recommended to us by our hotel concierge, and it did not disappoint! The food was incredibly affordable (between $2-$5 USD per dish) and delicious! They have photos of their standard dishes on the table, which helps a lot with the language barrier, but they also have a specials menu worth checking out. The two things in the photos are custard buns, and beef meatballs.
Agnes B Cafe
This French cafe chain in Hong Kong served excellent coffee and baked goods, and this particular location was also a flower shop. The atmosphere was inviting and cozy, which made it a regular stop while sight seeing to relax and cool off. Everything was offered iced or hot, but most of the time my boyfriend and I preferred to drink something cold.
This is a chain of restaurants in Hong Kong, but the quality of the food was amazing. The person in charge was happily chatting with other customers in French, which is always a good sign! He explained the menu to us, and we both ordered buckwheat ‘galletes’ with savory fillings like vegetables, eggs, and more.
This restaurant was highly recommended via Trip Advisor, so we stopped for lunch on our walk into town. The best part about this location is that you can see them working at the front of the shop through the window, busy making noodles, wontons, and other add-ins for the ramen. The portion sizes are perfect for lunch or a light dinner!
This Vietnamese restaurant was excellent, so good that we went twice! The service is quick, even during high traffic hours, and the pho is exceptional. We also tried some other dishes which were fantastic, but my boyfriend and I both have a soft spot for pho. The broth was cinnamony, spicy bliss, filled with rice noodles, vegetables and your choice of protein. The restaurant is in the trendy SoHo district, which is open late and has shops, bars, restaurants, and cafes. A must-see for travelers!
We loved exploring the huge selection of food offerings in Hong Kong and luckily we had heaps of time to try out a variety of dishes. Stay up to date with our travels by subscribing to Bloglovin’ below!
