Noodles from Sing Heung Yuen 


It’s also home to traditional dim sum and Hong Kong street food. Take notes from 2017 Asia’s Best Female Chef May Chow: “I love the Gough St. Area because it’s a space with a good mix of both old and new. The WOAW (World of Amazing Wonders) is a lifestyle store where you can take a sip of great coffee. I also love Lin Heung Tea House for their dim sum and Kau Kee for their brisket noodles. I also have my favorite restaurants which are definitely worth a try. These include The Chairman, Modern Izakaya: Ronin, Ginger Whiskey Bar, as well as Godenya.” Her 20-seater eatery along Staunton Street, Little Bao, may also be found in Old Town Central.
