This little cafe was opened about 50 years ago. If you think about it, that's half a century ago.
You could tell right away once you step inside. Everything's old.
Over the years, it has maintained the same kind of furniture, same kind of wall & floor tile designs, same kind of toilet, & probably the same people working there.
This place is so old that you'd feel as if you're being served by your grandpa & grandma.
But I'm sure it was once the grooviest place in town. I'm sure everyone wanted to be there just to be seen.
Judging from the people around us, it seemed to be a place for intellectuals, with very deep philosophical & artistic thoughts.
It's also important to note, especially for Hong Kong TVB series addicts, it's also a very famous shooting location for a lot of the drama series.
But obviously Greg & Nee weren't there to be seen. We were also not there for the psychedelic philosophy. We're there for the grub man.
When you're there, you've got to try the famous polo bun that comes with a slice of butter.
If you can, eat as much as you can so that it'll last you till your next trip back to Hong Kong.
Then you must try the just as famous yun yong (cofee milk tea).
This is an excellent place to unwind after all that walking. Everyone's sitting upstairs, & if you can get a seat by the window, you can see the hustle & bustle of people down there.
Also worth trying is their signature dish, Spare Ribs Baked Rice (HKD48). Love me tender baby.
Fried Noodles with Sliced Pork (HKD40). Smooth criminal.
