You’re never too far from a cafe or restaurant in Hong Kong’s densely packed district of Causeway Bay, but if you’re famished and in need of a quick and budget-friendly bite, Vienna Mix is your answer. Situated at the intersection of Jardine’s Crescent and Fuk Hing Lane, this cosy cafe is the best kept secret among busy executives in the area for its daily rotating selection of Western and Asian dishes, with a particular focus on local flavours. Its convenient location means it tends to get busy during lunch, so book ahead to avoid disappointment.
Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay is a trove of hidden gems for places to eat and drink, packed within its dense rows of streets and sometimes tucked away inside its maze of towering buildings. To the uninitiated, finding one can feel as if you’re looking for a needle in a haystack, so we’ll tell it to you straight: Vienna Mix is one name you should keep your eyes peeled for. Located at the ground floor corner unit where Fuk Hing Lane and Jardine’s Crescent meet, this Hong Kong-style cafe is the district’s best kept secret for daily lunch specials that offer variety without burning a hole in your wallet.
Part of the fun in dining at Vienna Mix is not knowing what’s on the menu, which features a daily rotation of five different set meals that blend the best of Asian and Western cooking. For the same price all day, every single day, you can expect dishes ranging in sashimi platters to pan-fried honey pork cutlet with spaghetti, together with a drink of your choice. To sweeten the deal, you even have the option of paying a small fee to top up your beverage, which we highly recommend that you do so anyway since the cafe’s speciality liquid concoctions are said to be among Hong Kong’s best. Situated just steps away from Causeway Bay MTR, seats at Vienna Mix tend to fill up fast so reserve a table now before it’s too late.
