Teakha was formerly one of Hong Kong’s best kept secret when they first opened more than 2 years ago when I was still living in Hong Kong – now it’s on everyone’s list from the Luxe guide to Hong Kong’s prominent food bloggers. Then sometime this year Po’s Atelier and Café Deadend came on the scene and Sheung Wan’s Po Hing Fong old neighbourhood started being called PoHo as the action shifted a little West from Central’s Soho.
While it’s getting more gentrified in Sheung Wan, “Poho” is one of my favourite spots to hangout and Teakha and Café Deadend one of my favourite little places to go to hide away and enjoy a wonderful cuppa masala tea at Teakha or dig into artisanal bread, salads and sandwiches at Café Deadend.
If you’re in town visiting, it may not be the easiest address to locate – hey that’s the whole fun of it right? Tell the taxi driver Po Hing Fong and you should get close to where you need to be, wander up and down the little alleys and staircases and you’ll be wonderfully surprised by the creative shops and little studios and cafés round the little discreet corners.
Teakha run by a Taiwanese lady and a blog whom I used to follow NaNa Moose, you get a list of premium quality brews, made a la minute with love and the cakes, scones and snacks change on a regular basis.
