Tasty Tai Hang!
The HK HUB reviews Tai Hang - where to eat, drink and get desserts. Great coffee, delicious Vietnamese Pho, sublime sushi and lab made ice cream.
Where to Eat, Drink and Enjoy Delicious Desserts
We all know that Central and SoHo are full of great restaurants and bars to try, but if you are looking for something a little bit different, then how about heading over to Tai Hang. Just a short walk from the Tin Hau MTR, Tai Hang has an intriguing mix of restaurants, bars and taxi repair shops. The whole area feels really up and coming, there’s not too much traffic so it’s easy to wander up and down the little streets, and it has a really cool vibe.
Whether you fancy Sushi, Pizza or Pho, there’s temptation at every turn! Always in search of new and interesting places to try, the HK HUB brings you the low-down on what’s on offer. Enjoy!
Stones – the owner of this American diner-esque bar will always ensure you get a warm welcome, which coupled with the good selection of wine, beers and cocktails makes it a great place to spend an evening. The delicious burgers are not to be missed either, but don’t overlook the rest of the menu which features great salads and tempting desserts.
Classified – a popular brunch and lunch spot, serving a good selection of western dishes including steaks, salads and pastas. Relaxed atmosphere, great cakes and the opportunity to buy some great artisan cheeses. Popular choice for all the family.
Café Locomotive – this busy and popular spot serves a mean Pho as well as a whole host of other Vietnamese specialities. The lunch deal is cheap (around $50 for a Pho) and quick, but get in early before the queue heads out of the door! Also open for dinner.
Sushi Shin – high quality sushi using really fresh ingredients. The interior is small and inviting, but better suited to a special occasion with a dinner for two costing around $1000.
The Helenia Home Bistro – this restaurant dedicates its entire menu to sous vides cuisine which involves cooking meat/fish in a sealed bag at a low temperature for a long time. The result is tender meat and fish and something just a little bit different. This home-style bistro is a great addition to the Tai Hang dining scene.
La Brezza – simple neighbourhood café serving French influenced food. Great for brunch.
PizzaZaZa – A light and bright Italian offering tasty thin crust pizzas and home-made pastas with rich and delicious sauces. This is a great place for a relaxed lunch or dinner.
Zanzo – industrial chic hangout built around a central bar and offering a great range of sake in addition to all the other drinks you would expect. Their range of light dishes include snapper sashimi and wagyu beef salad.
Buddy Bar and Café – quiet pub which is ideal for a midweek catch up with friends away from the packed bars of LKF and SoHo.
Unar Coffee Company – super cool coffee shop with distinctly British influenced styling and fabulous coffee. It’s not a traditional sit down coffee shop as there are only a few seats outside, but serves high quality coffee and is a really popular spot daytime and evening.
C’est La B – this beautiful café is furnished in bright colours, with teapots dangling from the ceiling and butterflies on the wall. It serves wonderful cake creations and you will be spoilt for choice.
Pappabubble – a sweet shop unlike any other with walls featuring bright little jars of delectable hand-crafted confectionery. You can watch the master confectioners at work in the back of the store as they create their speciality sweets.
Lab Made Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Laboratory – intense flavoured ice-cream in some amazing flavours including apple crumble, sticky toffee pudding and early grey.
