What´s up Hong Kong – week 50


Com Banh Mi

When: Grand Opening Dec 9 6-10pm

Where: 28 Tai Wong St East, Wan Chai

What? Hong Kong is falling head over heels for Vietnamese cuisine, this December, with restaurants popping up like daisies across our urban metropolis. It’s Com Banh Mi though, that we have firmly cemented on our radar, with its grand opening taking place this week. There’ll be showcasing their selection of non-traditional Vietnamese street food, for an evening that’s expected to be as fresh and wild as the food you’ll be tasting.

Something Old II PMQ

When: Nov 22 – Dec 11, 1-7pm

Where: PMQ, Aberdeen Street

What? As Hong Kong pours money into renewal rather than redevelopment, renovation rather than destruction, old is trumping new. And the city’s love of all things vintage is beautifully epitomized in the PMQ’s latest pop-up ‘Something Old II,’ where visitors can take a journey back in time to the whimsical world of the past. Guests can take part in eclectic workshops or simply enjoy the wonderful three-week-long market experience. Finding everything from cameras to jewellery and clothes, it’s possible to get an old-school barber cut or create your very own vintage watch, so go down and check it out if you haven’t already.
