20150213 - Hong Kong Hearts 01

January favorites. Hong Kong finds. Local. Things I loved.

I make my own coffee at home and there is a Nespresso machine at the office, but there’s nothing I love more than going to a nearby coffee shop to work, write or read for a couple of hours. January’s favorites: Coco Espresso and The Cupping Room.

My favorite alternative to the usual store-bought roasted chicken: La Rôtisserie. Authentic French roasted chicken, including the roasted potatoes cooked at the bottom of the pan, and delicious dessert pieces mean we eat this twice a week. Bonus: the paper box packaging.

Street art and graffiti seem to be booming in Sheung Wan and Central right now. I have been documenting it all and a series is beginning to take shape.

A couple of weeks ago I bought an early Valentine’s card for the boy: I weed you right now by nocturnal paper that I found at the WOAW store in Gough Street. Gough Street is my haven.

Sunday’s Grocery. I go where the chicken is. Third brainchild of Lindsay Jang (I wrote about Yardbird and Ronin before). Two words: chicken and waffles. A weekend special in Kennedy Town; with a great ambient, selection of drinks and the best staff in the city. Now with the railways extended to the west, it is not out of the way for me anymore either.
