I used to think Sheung Wan was the cool kid, winning the “which neighborhood is the hippest one?” game easily but, spending more and more time in Wan Chai on the Sun Street/Start Street/Moon Street neighborhood, I now kind of start thinking that might actually be my fav hood in the Kong. Wanna know why? Here are 15 reasons why.
 
(addresses are featured by alphabetical order
 
 
 
1. APT. (A Personal Taylor)

15 reasons why we love the Sun Street/Start Street/Moon Street neighborhood
Would a trendy area really be a trendy area without a hype coffee shop serving good coffee, yummy toasts and yogurt bowls? APT., opened in March, serves all this in a cool Scandinavian atmosphere and also offers a cute little terrace on Moon Street.

2. Artemis & Apollo

15 reasons why we love the Sun Street/Start Street/Moon Street neighborhood
Another recent addition to the neighborhood, but a seriously pornfood one. Can anyone ever have too much tzatziki, hummus and souvlaki?

6. Francis

15 reasons why we love the Sun Street/Start Street/Moon Street neighborhood
I am not the kind of girl to say no to Middle-Eastern flavors, serious wines, non-serious prices and great atmosphere. Francis is the shortest and easiest way to go to Tel Aviv from Hong Kong.
