Pronounced N-O-C – an acronym for ‘not only coffee’ – this small chain’s Sai Ying Pun outpost is a bright, airy beauty. The coffee is always good, with a simple choice of two beans to select from, and the food menu deserves a look too. The acai bowl, mushroom risotto and all-day breakfast are all winners. Come out of Exit B3 and head down Des Voeux Road for your reward.
One of Hong Kong’s coolest neighbourhoods – with a local flavour that neighbouring Sheung Wan has somewhat lost – Sai Ying Pun is a great place to hit up come the weekend, packed with great restaurants and cafés. Only in the area briefly or just want a flavour of what’s best about SYP? Here are our recommendations.
