When you're in a city like Hong Kong, with a population density of 6,396 inhabitants per square kilometre, you're bound to find something to do, somewhere. Like I've mentioned in previous posts, this city embodies sensory overload. There is simply so much to do, in such a small, confined metropolitan area (minus the more physical activities such as hiking, but I'll dive into that at a later date) that you can't help but walk everywhere and explore the little intricate side streets and see what they have in store.
Gough Street is home to one of the most famous noodle restaurants in Hong Kong, Kau Kee. I'm not going to pretend that I've known about this eatery like a well-educated foodie, but apparently Kau Kee has been around for 90 years. Unlike most noodle restaurants, it only serves beef brisket. No fish balls, no beef balls, no shenanigans.
Just down the street was a retail store for the British furniture brand, Timothy Oulton. Still slightly disoriented by the aforementioned meal, my friends and I were absolutely mesmerized by the leather good and stumbled our way in. Fortunately, the employees were very accommodating to these loitering university students and encouraged us to hang around and window shop.
