Artemis & Apollo at 9 & 11 Moon Street, Wan Chai
Where to dine… Artemis & Apollo
One of Black Sheep group’s most recent dining concepts, Artemis & Apollo is getting plenty of buzz – and for good reason. The venue offers up a modern Greek taverna experience with a fresh take on Mediterranean cuisine and an unfussy menu including the likes of chicken souvlaki, mezze, grilled octopus and lamb chops. We’d recommend cracking up a bottle of the Gaia Rosé to go with your lingering meal. Oh, and the baklava is a must.
Where to unleash your inner tourist… Yau Ma Tei
Wander over to Kowloon’s dynamic Yau Ma Tei to walk the local streets (neon-lit markets and material-arts dens live here) and grab yourself a couple of artisan souvenirs while you’re at it. We recommend starting at 39 Battery Street, where you’ll find Mak Kam Sang – Hong Kong’s last minibus sign writer – selling hand-drawn, machine-printed plastic minibus signs. A short stroll away, duck into Sindart – a handcrafted embroidered slippers store which has been passed down by three-generations. Shopped out? Stop for a slice of cake and a spot of people watching at the nearby MUM’s NOT HOME – a quirky local art space, cafe and boutique.
