The POHO community is definitely one of the rising stars in Hong Kong, becoming increasingly popular amongst locals and expatriates. A small neighbourhood embracing new and old alike, chic cafés, cozy restaurants and colourful art galleries are dotted amidst old tong laus, temples and historical landmarks. NOSH Tai Ping Shan is one of the few minimalistic, contemporary cafés nestled in the heart of this heritage neighbourhood. Focusing their attention on simple European-inspired cuisine and quality coffee, this little café is quickly becoming one of the most popular dining locations in the area.
We arrived on a sunny Sunday morning for their weekend brunch. We were lucky to be able to snatch up one of the few remaining seats. The staff were friendly and quickly took our order with plenty of smiles and little fuss.
Lovely fluffy scrambed eggs on two slices of buttered sourdough toast with crispy bacon, roasted vine tomatoes and greens. The scrambled eggs deserve a special mention as they were rich and eggy, not like the bland, diluted stuff you sometimes get at other restaurants. The bacon was also cooked perfectly, being crispy but not burnt and dry.
Brunch is never complete without a cup of coffee, and coffee at NOSH was pretty decent. Smooth and creamy but still able to taste the espresso within. Sipping on coffee while looking out onto the beautiful street outside is surely a great way to spend the mornings.
I would definitely recommend trying out NOSH Tai Ping Shan if you haven’t already, but definitely come early as it fills up quite quickly.
