“A dimsum restaurant with a 1920's Shanghai feel. Great for breakfast or afternoon tea. Try the classic shrimp dumplings (Har Gow), BBQ pork bun, and rice rolls (Chung Fun)”

Sports Bar

“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. ”
