This is my grandma. At 84 years young, she spends her days running a little restaurant in Kwun Tong called TH Vegetarian.
1) Because space is hard to come by and many people live in incredibly small flats, there’s a strong culture of dining out for most meals. There are more than 10,000 restaurants – which means even if you ate a different one everyday it would take you nearly 10 years to try them all. And that’s assuming that none closed down or any new ones opened.
Last night saw the launch of the Andor Bureau, a new cafe and gallery space on Mare street, just beside the canal. Replacing Eddie’s cafe, the greasy spoon that used to occupy the space, Andor is really a nice addition to the area.
What should one expect from Andor Bureau? An array of different art exhibitions, film screenings and events, in addition to locally sourced food, Mommouth coffee and lovely homemade cakes.
Also, I hear the chef they have lined up is pretty good to. He might just be my other half. Ignore the bias and go check it out for yourself. 3 Mare Street, E8 4RP.
UPDATE: Timeout did a little review on the cafe. You can read it here.
