As we all know by now, Hong Kong is a city of contrasts that blends the old with the new, the big with the small and the freedom to either take a walk on the wild side with those coloured girls going, “Shoop de doop de doop”, or go upmarket with some Uptown Girls. Especially contrasting are the variety of restaurants within walking distance of each other- a veritable international buffet of choices within close proximity of each other.
Frankly, when hitting one of those rare moments when we are so spoilt for choice, especially during lunchtime, that we suffer brain freeze trying to think of where to go, we either walk to the Peak Cafe Bar (G/F, 9-13 Shelley Street, SOHO, Central, T:+852 2140 6877) or the nearby Yorkshire Pudding (6 & 8 Staunton Street, SOHO, Central, T: +852 2536 9968). Both have their plus points. The Peak Cafe Bar offers you the best people watching venue in Central where one can watch people going up the escalator onto Caine Road and some of the most attractive and fittest women in town going down to the Pure Fitness health centre for their daily work out. You can catch them going downhill, and coming up, all sweaty and hot and bothered after their workout.
