This newly opened Yau Ma Tei cafe is – just like its name suggests – not just about coffee. The food menu boasts a stellar line up of Japanese and Western cuisine, as well as a selection of coffee from multiple origins including Brazil, Ethiopia, Guatemala, and Indonesia. As for the interiors, it features a modern minimalist design with bare concrete, wooden fixtures, large windows, botanicals, you know the drill. We recommend heading to the cafe early in the day as a queue tends to build up as soon as it hits noon.
Must-try: Lobster bisque with avocado prawn Inaniwa udon noodles (a type of udon from Akita prefecture) ($128), cold plum soba noodles with fried shrimp or grilled mackerel ($88), and dirty coffee ($40)
Snap this: Perch yourself on the bench outside the shop and take a photo. Be sure to get the beautiful floor tiles, plants, and concrete wall in one frame. If you're feeling camera shy, it'll work pretty well.
