Garage Society is not only in a prime location of business, but also in an excellent location for food!
It'd be good to have a ham and egg sandwich to start your day! This Hong Kong style bakery is just around the corner and it serves a wide range of breads and pastries with a budget price. Egg tarts and cookies from this bakery are also good to try!
Feel like enjoying something healthy, filling or low crab? You would find a perfect vegetarian takeaway on Wellington Street! It serves salads and Middle Eastern flatbreads with your choice of healthy toppings! With the concept of fast slow food to go, it's definitely a good choice of a healthy quick lunch.
What's for dinner? I would highly recommend a ramen shop on Stanley street. It is a small ramen shop with japanese decor and always full of japanese customers. This ramen shop makes me feel a bit like I am back in Japan! It's expected to wait a bit for a seat if it’s lunch or dinner time. It serves refreshing ramen with thick noodles and tonkotsu as the broth base. What I love the most is their toppings as their ramen not only comes with nori and chashu, but also a lot of spinach!! It's even worthy to go there on friday nights, as the japanese owner may offer u some free beer if he's drunk! :D ~CM
As part of our #BeTheChange series, we sit down and discuss how people and business have evolved, with change-makers in our Garage Community.
This week, we sit down with Michelle Hong, co-founder of Rooftop Republic, a social enterprise on a mission to introduce the joys of urban farming to the city folk of Hong Kong.
Rooftop Republic has been part of the Garage Community since 2018, and they have a rooftop farm on the terrace of our Wan Chai Lockhart space.
It was great to catch up with Michelle over sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and the joys of growing your own food.
The advent of user-friendly e-commerce tools has made starting your own small business easier than ever.
With so many people embarking on their entrepreneurial journey, we thought we’d give you a reminder on how to support small, local business owners.
We encourage everyone to be conscious consumers - whether this means voting with your dollar for locally farmed vegetables, or writing a positive review for the indie coffee shop in your neighbourhood.
Here are a few ideas to get started:
As part of our focus on growth, we asked the Garage Community what areas they would like they spend more time developing. It was very clear that you all wanted to dedicate more time to your mental and physical health!
Considering that Hong Kongers have some of the longest working hours in the world, it’s important to carve out some time for yourself.
Here is a comprehensive wellbeing toolkit with guides, recommendations, and resources for bettering your mind and body.
