We visited NOC Coffee, a local HK coffee chain that has several branches in Hong Kong. This one is located on Tai Wong Street, also home to a wide variety of restaurants such as Bakehouse and Verde Mar.
The NOC Coffee in Wan Chai is a boutique, but the quality is just as good as other branches. Finding a seat may be difficult during lunchtime. It’s located next to Cafe Relay.
In terms of price, our 2 coffees cost about the same as Starbucks, $80 for two.
Aside from a small cake selection, there isn’t anything to eat at the cafe; so, after coffee was done, we walked down to our next destination — and only a few shops away: Kamitora Tonkotsu in Wan Chai.
Kamitora Tonkotsu (神虎麺商店) is a cozy little ramen bar also on Tai Wong Street in Wan Chai. Their shopfront is low key — for many, this place could easily be missed.
We ordered their signature Kamitora ramen and their black garlic oil ramen.
The fresh meatballs with black pepper combined with red onion, spring onions, and black fungus created a fine, refreshing taste.
Two bowls of ramen cost slightly less than $200. It was slightly less filling than we would have liked, though we would say it is a great lunch spot.
