Quiet backstreet filled with hidden gems
PoHo – A treasure hunt
This area around Po Hing Fong is often referred to as PoHo. Many buildings start with ‘Po’, meaning treasure. With such an abundance of cool galleries and cafés next to old metal or woodworking shops, it’s like hunting for treasures indeed. Don’t forget to take the steps up Pound Lane to Tai On Terrace for even more hidden gems.
Our Po Hing Fong favourites:
Po’s Atelier sells artisans' bread with a twist. Japanese celebrity chef Masami Asano’s creations include bread flavoured with oolong tea and figs. Only the freshest ingredients are used, such as homemade soymilk and goat cheese from a farm in Yunnan, and all loaves are additive-free. Adjoining Café Deadend serves ‘modern produce-driven dishes’ including our favourite spiced apple tart.
In the old days, Sun Yat-Sen used to host revolutionaries and hold meetings in what is now Po’s Atelier.
