Going by a poetic Chinese name, 流水古巷, meaning ‘rivulet and ancient alley,’ this blue-green, conspicuous dim sum cafe is located on Dongfeng Dong Lu, a convenient 10-minute walk from Ouzhuang Metro Station. Elegance and tranquility set the tone at Louiswalk, where an amenity of solitude is guarded by frosted glass and impressive soundproofing. The glass keeps its interior under wraps and saves a surprise for walk-in customers who are greeted by a vibrant setting. Although dim sum varieties are limited, the written-on-the-wall menu offers some classic and a few innovative dim sum items, teas and coffees, as well as Cantonese desserts fit for afternoon tea.
