Shek Kip Mei is one of those rare neighbourhoods in Hong Kong where you still won’t find massive shopping malls or chain retailers. This small pocket has somehow evaded the clutches of capitalism for now and it only makes sense that the area attracts a hip arty crowd. The revitalised Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre contains art studios, galleries, a black box theatre — and Cafe Golden. Distinct with a grassroots vibe, their beans are house-roasted and their Fujisan oat milk comes in layers of light blues within a conical glass to resemble the eponymous Mount Fuji — very Instagram-worthy!
