208 HONG KONG

Most striking feature:

 

The tiles on the walls. Turkish architects from Autoban designed this restaurant in Sheung Wan. What they did was turn it into a contemporary place without losing the Chinese influences. For example: the tiles on the walls are from Portugal, but they show Chinese images. 208 has two floors. On the ground floor there’s a bar and a small terrace which is beautiful. Autoban furniture, those blue/white tiles and a lot of plants make it a favorite spot to rest a bit if you’re discovering Hong Kong. The restaurant is upstairs and they serve mainly Italian dishes. I’ve seen their pizza oven and as the manager told me: ‘they make the best pizza’s in Hong Kong’. Unfortunately I hadn’t had the chance to try them, but will do so next time.
