Do you want good Taiwanese food in Hong Kong? Are you in love with beef noodles like me?? Well you are in luck because there’s this pretty cool cafe called 1963 Wanchai! However, a warning – this Taiwanese deli / cafe is tucked away so it’s hard to find. Do some googling and some research before hand.
And oh yeah you need to walk up 4 sets of stairs to get to the restaurant. There’s signs telling you to burn some calories before eating, so I guess that’s motivation….
So if you have the address in hand, then you know the approximate location. Just look for this:
Again. 4 sets of stairs. I have warned you.
BUT the food here is not too bad! As you can probably guess, I got the beef noodles:
Yo SO GOOD. SO GOOD. I devoured this in like 10 minutes. It wasn’t that big to begin with though..but for 65HKD I will live with it. Have to confess though, this stuff got a bit salty towards the end…I needed to drink a lot of water…but we are eating out and the fact that we found a decent Taiwanese restaurant / cafe I am not gonna complain.
What did the life boss get?
She got some random ass chicken dish which apparently is really good too (per online reviews). I don’t know, I preferred my beef noodles more. Because really, what can be better than beef noodles?
And of course the obligatory veggie dish. Was very garlicky. It was alright, not a must order for sure. And it was a bit salty.
Another cool thing about this restaurant is the decor. SO RETRO YO. You girls must love it (and I guess some guys too). Do these old cameras even work? who knows, maybe it’s just for show. Some more pictures for you:
My picture may make you think this place is empppttyyyy…but no it’s because we came at 3PM. yes it was a late lunch. Yes we had a late night. Don’t judge us.
Jay chow will be proud of this place I reckon.
I know my stomach was (even though I was thirsty as hell at the end).
