So, you’re in Hong Kong and you’ve got a craving for really scrummy, healthy food followed by a huge wedge of cake? Fear not, one place can deliver all of that – and make you feel like you’ve found a home from home…
City: Hong Kong
Where: Cedele, Shop C, G/F, Fashion Walk, Great George Street / 852 2110 0490
What: Eat & Drink
Three reasons we love it…
The setting. The Fashion Walk Food Street in the busy shopping district of Causeway Bay has recently undergone a major facelift, with more cosy niche eateries sprouting up all over the place. Nestled behind a few outdoor seats in the shade is cafe Cedele. Its canteen-style layout, wood-clad walls and white marble tables make for a warm, homey ambience.
The food. Cedele has become a popular destination for yummy – but nutritious – food, with four branches in Hong Kong. However, unlike its Singaporean home branch which has a broad raw, vegan and gluten-free offering, the HK cafe isn’t so niche. Offering “good food for a good life”, superfoods such as chia seeds, sweet potatoes, beetroots, avocados and black beans feature heavily in its all-day brunch and á la carte menu. That’s not to say there aren’t treats – Cedele’s artisan cakes, scones, and desserts are becoming legendary. In fact, it’s basically criminal to leave without trying the walnut carrot cake.
The trend: Eating organic isn’t new to Hong Kong. However, Cedele’s nicely curated menu, casual atmosphere and reasonable price point makes this Western-style cafe a perfect hangout.
