Top 10 Hidden Gem Lane-ways in Hong Kong

November 2, 2016 43 Comments

The Sheung Wan is the up-trending area in Hong Kong, known for the boutique cafes, hidden restaurants and antique shops. If you stroll down any of those streets carefully, you will be amazed how many cool places you can discovered on one compacted little street. Let me take you to discover those hidden gem lane-ways in Hong Kong…


Bridge Street

Bridge street is the extension of Staunton Street from SoHo distraction, one of the most famous restaurants on Bridge Street is Yard Bird. It won the award of one of the Top 50 restaurants in Asia for 2015. Unfortunately no bookings can be pre-made for Yard Bird, and people often have to go there put their name down and go elsewhere for a drink before they can be seated, and the wait is often more than 2 hours. But the good thing is – there are plenty bars along Staunton street.



Gough Street

There are a few funky furniture stores located on Gough Street, however, the most famous place on the street is the Kau Kee Beef Brisket Noodle bar. It became one of the Must-Visit local food joint in Hong Kong a few years ago, and ever since then, the queue outside the place is often hundred people long! If you don’t have the time to wait in the queue, I suggest you to get the take-away and sit in the playground next door for some local experiences.



New Street

Towards the end of Sheung Wan, before the streets turns into Sai Ying Pun, there is this street filled with cool deli, whisky bars and modern art galleries. Take a stroll down the street for a few new discoveries that recently opened in the neighbourhood.


On Wo Lane

This lane way is no more than 50 meters long, however there are quite a speakeasies located on the left hand side of the street. If you see a fancy plain black door on the street level with no signs, don’t be afraid to open it! It is the sister restaurant/Japanese whisky bar of Yard Bird. The place is super tiny, sits only about 20 people along both sides of the wall. Make sure make a book before you head out just to avoid the waiting time. If case you forget to book, no worries. There is another hidden speakeasy right next door called ‘Ginger Whisky Bar’. Again it is just a plain door with no sign so ever with a U-shape bar in the middle of the room that fits only a handful of people.



Pound Lane

Shorter than On Wo Lane, this lane way is less than 10 meters long! Just around the corner of Pound Land and Tai Ping Shan Street, there is a tiny green door that opens to a stair case and takes you to Mrs Pound, a secret stamp shop restaurant that serves south-east Asian food with burlesque dancers. How cool is that!



Po Hing Fong

I can spot a million cool places along the way of Po Hing Fong. It is probably the newest hipster place in town. At we end of the Po Hing Fong, spotted Fungus Workshop, where you can learn and make you own leather goodies anything from handbags, to passport holders to shoes. What an amazing gift idea would this be to gift someone special with something made by yourself? And on the other kind of the Po Hing Fong sits the famous Café Deadend. I think the name is quite self-explanatory …However, most importantly, it is the quality of the food they serve for brunches. On a normal sunny day, be prepared for a long wait before you can score a table in the court yard.



Tai Ping Shan Street

This is probably the busiest lane way in Sheung Wan, where you can find dozens and dozens of cool cafes and coffees shops on both sides of the street. There are countless hipster and trending places, and often you can find a few pop up stores for clothing and gadgets. 3rd Space is a spacious cool outdoor place tucked in from the back of the Tai Ping Shan Street where you can just get a cup of coffee and chill (read a book and work on your laptop for a few hours). Nosh is one of my favourite hangout place for Sunday brunch, where you can sit on either side of the wall depends on the weather condition. Other places worth a visit on the street are Tea House and Just Coffee Hipster.



Tung Street

One of my favourite brunch places in the area is located on Tung Street, called Oldish café. Just like its name, it is a café filled with vintage decos. It’s a very cosy place perfect for the autumn and winter vibe. Get a cup of hot coffee there to chill on the bench outside and people watch.

Upper Lascar Row

This is the antique street that filled with endless shops of antiques. If you are an antique fan, there is a must-visit street for you in Hong Kong. Spaced out along the street, you can find a few cute little cafes, The Popsy Room or Man No café to rest up your foot if you get tired from walking up and down the hill in the area.

Upper Station Street

This is probably the most compacted street in Sheung Wan area off the busy Hollywood Road. Along both sides of the street, we have Upper Modern Bistro, an One-Michelin star restaurant led by Philippe Orrico. Across from the street, we have Mitte, a fusion Italian place with cosy and funky space, often is popular for event hires. Next to Mitte, we have OHM Vegan Lab for cold pressed teas and Crafty Cow, a local brewery for a pit stop when you are thirsty.
