26a Russell Street,
Causeway Bay, Kong Kong
(opposite Times Square)
Just around the corner from our hotel we discovered Corridor nestled between two buildings, you enter by walking down a mosaic tiled passage, it is compact and cosy with works by local artists and photograghers adorning the walls, it reminded me of a Melbourne laneway cafe, free WI-FI is popular with clienetele.
The blackboard menu displayed a good range of cakes, sandwiches and light meals. My wife enjoyed a delicious toasted banana bread laden with real bananas and sprinkled with cinnamon. My son enjoyed a pasta with fresh produce and ham.
I ordered a doppio ristretto which they extracted on a Wega 2 group, my ristretto had a rich dark crema, good temperature, I was hit by bright choc/cocoa notes with good body from a fuller roast and was left with a lingering slightly astringent aftertaste, it satisfied my need for caffeine nicely.
I then ordered a latte machiato, it arrived with an intricate latte art etching adorning the silky smooth milk, the blend cut through the milk to give a pleasant but not powerful choc/caramel taste, another enjoyable caffeine hit.
My wife and son’s cafe lattes were decorated with different etchings which impressed them greatly. They enjoyed their coffees and we returned a couple more times when good coffee was required.
Coffee from Coffee Assembly, Kowloon.
They have four different blends and also sell 250g take-away packs.
Well worth a visit while in Causeway Bay, good coffee, great atmosphere, a shining light in a sea of mediocrity that is coffee in HK.
