Mrs. Pound – It’s Not A Stamp Shop!

Hiding inconspicuously behind a Chinese stamp shop along Sheung Wan‘s Pound Lane, that is Mrs. Pound consists of tall chairs at the bar, neon signage, movie star mirrors hanging up high and make-up compacts, silver chopsticks on the fuchsia wall. It can be easily missed out.

The menu takes a playful twist on Asian street food with influences coming from Thai, Italian and Korean etc., inspired by the backstory of Mrs. Pound the owner.

During the late afternoon, the restaurant serves only small dishes, so we opt for a bowl of avocado fries. It is seriously unique, coated with amazingly crunchy panko breadcrumbs, whilst is drizzled with honey for extra flavor. The sriracha mayo on the side is very much a perfect match!

Another dish we have is the poutine fries with beef rendang, which is absolutely fantastic. It is basically shredded beef brisket cooked in an intense and vibrant spicy sauce, baked over the potato fries with some melted mozzarella and spring onion to finish.

Without a doubt, I will definitely return for more incredible fusion food, the signature Mrs. Pound’s rendang bao in particular; and I appreciate the staff who attempt to lend me an USB cable to charge my iPhone, haha.
