Feb 3, 2021 | Hong Kong, Food

Hong Kong is renowned for its varied food culture that offers tourists a wide spread of mouth-watering delicacies. Amongst the different food cultures “Bing Sutt” is prominent. It is a traditional coffee house in Hong Kong, which originated in GuangZhou, and gained popularity between 1950s to 1960s. At that time, “”Bing Sutt”” could only sell a few drinks and limited snacks.

However, “”Bing Sutt”” was re-licensed as a restaurant afterwards and transformed into today’s HongKongese coffee house.


“”Cafe Match Box””, located in Causeway Bay’s Paterson Street, is a star attraction for tourists. Although the place has adapted to modern times it has still aesthetically retained the traditional Hong Kong Culture, in not just their cuisine but also in their ambience.

“Cafe Match Box” captures the true essence of Hong Kong via the display of street signs, neon light signs, cozy outdoor seating on which tourists capture a lot of memories to take back with them. Cafe Match Box hosts a table tennis table outside the restaurant which is reminiscent of old Hong Kong housing estates. Diners can work up their appetite by enjoying a game while bonding with their friends and family along with the taste of tradition.


What makes this “”Bing Sutt”” a hot favourite amongst tourists is it’s distinguished seats which resembles the Hong Kong “”14-seater minibus””, which gives diners a feel of eating on a minibus! Diners get an experience of indulging in Hong Kong style while having their meals!


The menus are designed like old-style school workbooks that bring the nostalgia of your childhood days back. The retro decorations capture the core of Hong Kong in this “”Bing Sutt”” and make an interesting backdrop to brighten and add colours to your pictures. The prices are pocket friendly and attract young adults that are scouting for an experience without feeling extravagant.


When you visit “”Bing Sutt””, you must relish the taste of traditional Hong Kong beverages like “”Cold Milk Tea”” and “”Red Bean Ice””.
We also recommend to rejoice the aroma of Hong Kong by savouring “”French Toast”” and “”Set Meals”” which are guaranteed to tingle your taste buds.

Let’s revel in the Hong Kong food culture!
