You may have heard of Hong Kong’s Soho area in Central which is packed with international food restaurants and bars. Another gathering place of restaurants and bars which is less talked about and is smaller in scale is in Tsim Sha Tsui east.
Take the star ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui. After getting off the boat, walk along the harbour front, until you are well past the Avenue of Stars. You will then see a flyover that takes you to the opposite side of the road. Here, you will find a row of restaurants and bars, parallel to the Salisbury Road, and with breathtaking harbour view, especially after dark.
The plus of this place is, it is not as crowded as Soho and there is a splendid harbour view to enjoy. But the minus point is its lack of choice in dining and drinking. After all, there are only about 10 restaurants in the area.
Among the restaurants there is only one Chinese restaurant – a famous Shanghainese food eatery Xiao Nan Guo (Little Southern State, No.66 Mody Road). The restaurant, based in China, is highly regarded in Shanghai and has established its presence in Hong Kong since 2000. It now has four stores in Hong Kong.
To get to the area, you can also take MTR and get off at Tsim Sha Tsui East station. Take exit P1.
