Mido Cafe is as old and as honest as they come. Tucked on a street corner overlooking a temple, Mido Cafe welcomes the rich and the famous, the regular and the traveller with simple, honest and hearty fare. We took our breakfast here one day and got plates of toast each to fill our bellies for the day's walking ahead.

One stop away from Central, Admiralty is a little more staid, a little less frivolous. We spent one late afternoon at The Petit Cafe catching our breath and taking a little time to read and write amidst business people wheeling and dealing. Later I took a little walk around Hong Kong Park after I failed to reach the Asia Society in time.

Looking at these pictures, I am struggling very hard to keep my drool from spilling out of my mouth. What you see here is a bowl of creamy, calorie-laden cheese sauce ladled over firm, springy instant noodles. Perfect supper food. I got the classic pork neck while C went for a Hong Kong style carbonara of eggs and sausages. We washed it down with cups of iced tea. Sun Kee Noodles is located in Champagne Court on Kimberly Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, it's a really dodgy looking place but there's nothing dodgy about the food.

126 grammes is a cute little patisserie dedicated only to choux a la creme (creme puff), an insanely delicious and tiny cake that traces its history to 16th century France. 126 grammes is the first bakery in Hong Kong to offer choux a la creme, made all the more delicious because you really have to work for it! 126 grammes is located at the top of Aberdeen Street, one of the the steepest street in Central. Take a few seconds to regain your breath before you go in and marvel at those delicate creations.

I like how Central has a mix of low-end and high-end eateries. Mak's Noodles seems like it would be more comfortable set in a suburban neighbourhood but there it is in the middle of Central, set amongst the skyscrapers that make Hong Kong a financial metropolis. Walk inside, and you forget all about that. Mak's Noodles is as homely as they come, with the clientele to match. The noodles were insanely delicious, and so different from what we have at home.
