Filipina blogger Kryz Uy has been making a name for herself by sharing with us her fashion and travel experiences throughout the years.
Together with TLC and the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), Uy gives you a new season of A Taste of Hong Kong, premiering this August 14. Together with host Josie Ho, the show will feature the blogger experiencing a mix of rustic and modern oriental glamour in the city. “Getting to explore Hong Kong from a local’s perspective was so refreshing, and it definitely makes me want to discover more hidden gems in the city,” she says.
In this season, Uy and Ho get a glimpse of locations like the Old Town Central. It’s a contrasting neighbourhood and an amazing landmark destination, which reveals over 100 years of Hong Kong’s history. Below, see some of the blogger’s favorite places in this location:
1. Lan Fong Yuen
At the heart of Old Town Central is Lan Fong Yuen, which is a great restaurant to have breakfast in–or any meal of the day, actually. Locals are said to be a fan of their Hong Kong-style noodles, French toast and Pork Chop Bun. After your meal, Uy suggests having tea there as well.
2. Peel Street
Joining the list of cool restaurants and bars in Peel street is the aptly named 65 Peel. The bar is known for its list of 12 locally brewed craft beers, as well as their seafood snacks. Nearby, one can shop for antiques in Cat Street or grab a cup of coffee at the hip coffee shop called Teakha.
3. The Pontiac
In need of some fun and relaxation after a long day? The Pontiac, which is a short walk through Soho, is perfect for you. Established by Beckaly Franks, known as the First Lady of Mixology, this bar has an all-female bartending team that knows how to get the party started.
