This is the last of the Hong Kong entries. Before leaving we check out Mackie Kitchen, an extension of the upstair bookshop Mackie Study that was sadly closed down earlier this year.
Indie, art, cultural places like this are extremely rare in this finance-centric city, where only chichi/business-chic/high end place are valued.
The space is also used for shows and events (indie band, gallery, etc.). It’s a good information gathering place to find out what cultural events are happening in the city.
Each table is guarded by a different handmade doll. I love our elephant!
The handmade menu is very cute!
The food is typical cafe food. We got the pasta set. Home cooking tasting, not bad at all!
Black forest Cake. The Hong Kong style Black forest cake was my childhood favorite, it is a lot lighter and has jello in between. Though this one is a bit dry and has too much cream. The food are not amazing, but I still love the whole experience because of how cute the space is!
In the back of the cafe, they have a bookshelf stocking many new + past issues of art/cultural magazines, especially of China’s City Pictorial Magazine. We bought many issues. I’d hang out everyday here if I live in Hong Kong.
I finally get through all the travel entries. Back to LA next (lots of update coming)!
