Top notch @ Nosh
The famous Sheung wan on Hong Kong island has earned the title of bohemian and happening ‘hood, and we couldn’t agree more. Little streets going up and down, antics retailers mixing with Chinese herbal medicine stores and art galleries create a very unique vibe, ideal for a sunday stroll. Perfect to satisfy your wanderlust and laid back mood.
Nosh, aka the newest and hypest spot in the Tai Ping Shan area, is a corner café restaurant serving delicious food from breakfast till afternoon tea. The delighting cafe welcomes a busy crowd on week ends for brunch, avidly looking for the creations of chef Danielle Yuen and executive pastry chef Aki Yamamoto who both made their classes at a HK Michelin starred restaurant.
Foodies can either sit outside at a very slim counter favorable to unsuspected encounters, or inside, where arty walls encapsulate the urban chic with a definite Hong Kong feel to this modern café. Food is fresh, crispy, tasty – a contemporary approach to classics as a golden thread woven through the menu. Eggs, the latest foodie tendance – have you checked #eggporn? – are omnipresent and mastered to perfection. Try the granola and yogurt for a tempting healthy treat, indulge in the sandwich of the day – varies from salmon / avocado / eggs to mushroom & other bundles of joy – or totally unleash your inner gluton and try the Nosh Brunch, complete with vine tomatoes, sausages, sourdough & co.
The desserts are, to put it mildly, to die for. I still have this vivid recollection of a gorgeous looking berry millefeuille that tore me apart – it was so artfully created, with beautiful fleshy fruits, that I felt guilty spooning it. An then the taste exploded into my mouth – and I could not stop eating this beauty. Alternatively, try the signature lemon tart that encapsulate the Japanese – french style of chef Aki Yamamoto.
