The neighbourhood - already popular for gourmets waiting in queues in front of Kau Kee Restaurant for its signature beef brisket noodles - has now become home to a handful of designer boutiques, cafes and bars.

Gough Street, Central

Gough Street, a quiet thoroughfare on the blurry boundary between Central and Sheung Wan, was once dominated by printing businesses. But high rents brought by gentrification have seen most of those establishments replaced by boutiques and bistros.

Joined at the hip

It's a Saturday afternoon and Gough Street is buzzing. A mix of expats and artsy locals are enjoying cups of coffee at Sidewalk cafe, while a line has started to form outside the sweet-smelling Ms B's Cakery. Further down the street, young Chinese girls are window shopping for the latest accessories while married couples are eyeing the chic design stores that overrun the tiny street.
