This tiny restaurant and bar, tucked away in the Sheung Wan backstreets, has become one of Hong Kong’s hottest tables. Mrs Pound might be easy to miss, with its faux stamp-shop frontage, but inside it’s anything but discreet thanks to the hot pink walls and retro memorabilia. The trans-Asian menu is divided into smaller and larger plates – salads and skewers, alongside crowd pleasers such as laksa bibimbap, rendang bao and Hainan chicken rice. Make an effort, too, to sample from the diverse selection of cocktails – we particularly like the Green Goddess or Bohemian Sour.
Sheung Wan, on the western edge of Central, has evolved into one of the city’s hippest neighbourhoods – and is a fun locale to explore.
