Sheung Wan

Establishment neighborhood
Liang Yi Museum
181-199 Hollywood Rd., Sheung Wan
Hollywood Road has long had a history rooted in the buying and selling of antiques. Now, one of the city’s greatest resident collectors, Peter Fung, has opened a 20,000-sqaure foot private museum devoted to showcasing his own personal collection, which includes 300-plus pieces from Ming and Quing dynasties and an assortment of jeweled powder boxes from the likes of Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier. Exhibitions will rotate twice a year, and unlike its traditional counterparts, visitors are encouraged to sit on and touch the items on display.
Classified
108 Hollywood Rd., Sheung Wan
When you've maxed out on dim sum and just want a simple café where you can tuck into the paper, and maybe a bagel and lox or some avocado toast, Classified is a nice choice. So welcome, in fact, that there are something like nine outposts scattered across the region. They do a reliably great English and Irish breakfast and the coffee is better than what you'll find in most joints. Other locations include Stanley, Causeway Bay, Wan Chai, Repulse Bay, Central, and Happy Valley.
Yardbird
33-35 Bridges St., Sheung Wan
Yardbird doesn’t take reservations, which doesn’t deter the crowds from lining up every night: The menu is all about chicken, served yakitori style, and it doesn’t disappoint. While the focus seems specific, they’re unsparing in skewering and barbecuing every part of the bird, from the neck to the heart, to the liver (you can get basic breasts, too). For vegetarians, there are plenty of delectable sides, including sweet corn tempura and eggplant salad.
