On the record with Hong Kong's most famous vinyl collector
Music On the record with Hong Kong's most famous vinyl collector

Four years after initially meeting with Hong Kong’s most famous record collector, Time Out revisits the vinyl hero himself, Paul Au, to find out how the state of vinyl has changed in Hong Kong. By Ananta Agarwal Of course, some things haven't changed since we last caught up with Paul. His apartment is still packed with his precious records stacked on shelves and in storage boxes – just like four years ago. A cursory glance around the room reveals Madonna and Bowie, some Motown classics, and other Cantonese rarities from the sixties.  A Pioneer turntable forms the focal point of the apartment, a record of some description perpetually spinning atop it fills this pokey Sham Shui Po apartment with a rich and warm sound. This time it’s Lennon lamenting how “It’s been a hard day’s night and I’ve been working like a dog.” And on this note, we pick up where we left him nearly four years ago.   Image: Max Power Disregard the inevitable challenges posed during a tumultuous 2019, and the past few years have been good to Paul and his vinyl. In an industry in which artists are finding it increasingly difficult to carve out a living through sales alone, data up to mid-2019 shows vinyl having sold 8.6 million units – and that’s not counting the millions more doubtless picked up in thrift stores – in a wave of wax that saw it poised to pip annual CD sales for the first time since 1986. It’s true that CD and digital sales continue to plummet, and streaming unfortunately doesn’t compete in te

Rubia review
Restaurants Rubia review

There’s something about steak that captures the imagination of us meat lovers like nothing else. Perhaps it’s a primal, insatiable lust to devour meat in its most unadulterated form, or maybe our obsession lies in appreciation for the art form, the majestic simplicity of a steak laid bare and denuded of any peripherals to hide behind. Whatever it is, one thing’s for sure – while some of us can achieve near-restaurant quality at home with our clutch curries, stir-fries and spaghettis, to sear a steak like the pros is a formidable task. With this in mind, those of us with a carnivorous streak will welcome Rubia. This new Central steakhouse is certainly one for the visit list when the current situation surrounding the coronavirus improves. Forget your Angus, Hereford or even Wagyu, Rubia specialises in an exclusive beef called Rubia Gallega, or Galician Blond, a unique breed of bovine reared on the verdant hills of Galicia in northwestern Spain. The cattle interestingly aren’t slaughtered until as old as 17 years – that’s pensioner age in cow years – which is different to many parts of the world where, in the interest of tender meat and beefy profits, cows become steaks just a few years after tasting grass. The result is a Spanish beef of unique taste and texture that in the past decade, has been lauded by food critics the world over. As for the restaurant itself, it’s split into two levels. The ground level takes the form of a shadowy taberna that wouldn’t seem out of place in

OCTOBER 2019: As our city’s vibrant restaurant scene continues to evolve at a rapid pace, we’ve made more than a few additions to our list this time around. Most notably, the new-in-town French cuisine maestros at Louise have stormed in to take the coveted top spot, and we’ve also welcomed to the pack visionary French-Japanese fusion eatery à nu retrouvez-vous, laidback Vietnamese spot Chôm Chôm, and down-to-earth noodle paradise, Mak Man Kee, among others. Welcome to the Time Out EAT List, for which we’ve been busy scouring the streets and alleys to bring you the very best restaurants in Hong Kong. As usual, this line-up has been compiled by our ravenous food and drinks editors who aren’t just on the hunt for a delectable bite – although taste certainly doesn’t count for nothing – but also consider the buzziness of the atmosphere, the price (for those on a tight budget, check out our dedicated cheap eats list), and the relevance of the concept in our ever-changing metropolis.  From long-time favourites to newbies, we've sorted everything, from restaurants in some of Hong Kong’s best hotels to the city's most delectable street eats. In short, this is whatever serves the best food in Hong Kong right now. Let’s dig in!

From the city’s top restaurants and their slew of Michelin stars to Hong Kong’s best bars, which are among the most creative in the region, our city proves that size isn’t everything. In fact, at the height of its influence, only the USA and India produced more films than Hong Kong. And our cinema is one of tremendous variety, too. From adaptations of popular Chinese opera, to Johnnie To’s gritty crime noirs, to the tales of repressed heartache that made Wong Kar-wai internationally famous, Hong Kong cinema can do it all. So what are the best Hong Kong movies of all time? Edmund Lee presents his definitive list chock full of some of the best films ever made anywhere on the planet.

In the past eighty-some years, the kidney-shaped parcel of land that is San Po Kong has developed a rich history, and boasts a plethora of old-timey sights and vintage delights. Though San Po Kong was originally a barren plot that was later adapted as one of the runways for the former Kai Tak Airport.  After two short decades, it was transformed into an industrial sector when the ‘50s and ‘60s saw Hong Kong’s shift from a mere entrepôt to a rapidly-growing industrial city with a booming, manufacturing-based economy. Nestled comfortably between Wong Tai Sin and Diamond Hill and situated right above the now-residential acreage that used to be the Kai Tak Airport, this compact grid of industrial and residential buildings has become a goldmine for great eateries and many more hidden gems. If you’re looking for new, recherché spots to hit in one of the most overlooked parts of Hong Kong, look no further and take a look at our ultimate neighbourhood guide for the best places to visit in San Po Kong.
