Located in Sheung Wan, Po’s is everything you want in a bakery. The brainchild of photographer Jonathan Leijonhufvud and art director Vincent Cheng (which shows in the minimalist interior design) Po’s specialises in Japanese-French fare. Every morning the heady smell of freshly baked bread wafts out of its doors, a groin-ticklingly delightful aroma which is the work of another partner in the project, the famous Japanese chef, Masami Asano.
They serve all kinds of baked goods from a loaf of sour dough (HK$120) to chocolate danishes (HK$18) with some exotic numbers thrown in like Oolong fig bread. Another winner, the scones of the day, tend to sell out before noon so head there early if you’re a scone nut. Happily, they’ve also opened a place next door to sit down and eat called Café Deadend which sells sandwiches, breakfast, salads, coffee – you know the drill. For those lazy days when you’ve done enough walking and just want to spend your money consuming everything in your sight.
