Tseung Kwan O may not be the first place you’d have in mind for a nice weekend brunch but the recent influx of new restaurants, cafes and stores have quickly turned this slow-paced neighbourhood by the sea into one of Hong Kong’s hippest part of town.
With a gorgeous waterfront park where you can people-watch after lunch, and plenty of cafes for an afternoon pick-me-up, we're listing the best places to eat, drink and shop in Tseung Kwan O.
Where to eat
JOMO Kitchen & Health Hub
Undeniably Tseung Kwan O’s most popular restaurant, JOMO Kitchen & Health Hub—which stands for “Joy of Missing Out”— is a two-in-one cafe and gym right by the waterfront. Visitors will find the gym on the right, and the cafe and restaurant on the left, as well as an al fresco dining area outside.
While the restaurant is not known for healthy cuisine but rather for their beautifully plated cakes such as the earl grey chiffon cake and matcha roll cake, they also have all-day breakfasts and other brunch offerings on the menu in case you’re inspired by the gym while waiting for a table. Be prepared to wait for a seat as the restaurant is always crowded with a line, or order it for takeaway and find a quiet spot by the park instead.
