History and character in abundance

A place of contradictions, SoHo is where the old jostles with the new and East mingles with West. Located near Man Mo Temple is The Press Room, the hip restaurant where people go to take a recklessly long brunch or dinner.

Thinking about where to spend your Easter holidays? Why not pay a visit to this fascinating boutique Indian restaurant in SoHo, if its advert is anything to go by. A reader kindly sent us the ad, according to which customers at Guru are offered a 'disoc**t' until next Wednesday. We are wondering who that might be - an alluring and available lady in a disco?
