Coffee, Croissants, and Lobster Rolls in Central Hong Kong
From shopping to sightseeing, you are bound to get hungry from all that tiresome walking. So why don’t you treat yourself to a coffee and pastry? We stopped by Urban Works Bakery in Central, Hong Kong to give our legs a break and try out this cafe in the affluent Landmark mall.
The restaurant was located on the 3rd floor, beside Pret a Manger.
We tried the Langoustine Croissandwich with Curry Emulsion and the Ugly Lobster Roll, their signature sandwich.
For drinks, we tried a coffee and a tea. We had a hot cafe latte and an iced lemon tea. For those of us used to the sugary and sweet Hong Kong style milk teas, these drinks tasted ordinary — even a bit on the bland and boring side. Also, this cafe had a no straws policy which made drinking our iced tea awkward 😕. Total price for everything: around $200 HKD.
What we enjoyed…
wide selection of meats, seafood
many different types of buns
What we didn’t like so much…
lobster roll was stingy on the lobster
drinks were fairly low on sugar and on the bland side
