Hi.

My name is Dina. I am an art buyer from Amman, Jordan and my blog is about my art travels! Welcome to my escapades!

Poho

Poho in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong is the newest hip area on the Island.

Quaint, bohemian, and trendy, this new area near Soho is the place to go for food, art, and fashion. Many super eateries, trendy boutiques, and small art galleries, all jammed up into two blocks atop the hill overlooking Sheung Wan.

I accidentally discovered Frantzen's Kitchen - by Björn Frantzén, a Nordic gastronomy restaurant run by chef Jim Löfdahl. Great reviews, and certainly a menu with a modern Norwegian twist. 

And right opposite is the lovely, well known Spanish ham shop from Barcelona, Reserva Iberica, with a tiny shop of cheeses and hams, some great wines, and a few tables and chairs to sit on in the street. 

Oldish is a few steps away as well, with a delicious breakfast and all day menu. Cozy setting and very friendly staff.

Unfortunately I cannot give you any local food recommendations, as I found the food in Hong Kong not quite to my taste!!! Yes, I know, contrary to what everyone told me before going, and to what most people say, street food, and the local food eateries did not really agree with my palette!?! So, sorry, no recommendations there.
