Here are all the new restaurant and cafe openings we featured in our September 2019 issue:

1. Let’s Brunch

As we stepped through the doors of Let’s Brunch, one of their friendly staff members was quick to attend to our party. Upon being seated, our server recommended their signature dish – crab meat eggs benedict (RMB68) – made with Alaskan crab meat, flying fish roe, ham and, of course, Hollandaise sauce. 

When the bennies arrived, we were surprised by the absence of any accompanying hash brown or potatoes (so you’ll have to order that on the side). The eggs (although a bit cold) were perfectly poached, with shreds of crab meat and creamy hollandaise on top of small English muffins. Although the dish comes with two eggs benny, we left feeling still a bit peckish, so we’d advise ordering a side or two to share with friends. 

Price: RMB100
Who’s going: brunchers, KOLs, Bennie and the Jets
Good for: girlfriend gatherings, Western-style brunch, light breakfasts
Nearest metro: Science Museum Station (Exit D), 10 minutes’ walk

2. Fika.rum

Although Fika.rum’s menu is limited in its range (there are not many offerings beyond coffee and cakes), their options are superb and the shop is a must-visit for any coffee enthusiast interested in sampling great java. 

For those looking to venture into the world of gourmet coffee, we suggest the ‘Colombia El Girasol Pink Bourbon Washed Cinnamon’ coffee (RMB58), a hearty drink with a bit of punch and a pleasant aroma that is sure to warm the soul on a rainy Shenzhen day. For those looking to cool down, we suggest the light iced drip coffee (RMB48). The drink takes six to eight hours to brew and in the process acquires a slight alcoholic taste. We strongly suggest taking a second to smell above the whiskey glass in which this cold and bitter drink is served – a true delight for both your taste buds and your nose! 

Price: RMB50-80
Who’s going: coffee enthusiasts, Shekou hipsters, secret menu sleuths
Good for: getting work done, meeting with friends, post-workout treats
Nearest metro: Sea World (Exit A), 3 minutes’ walk
