Harry Potter cafe opens in Mong Kok
A Harry Potter cafe has opened in Hong Kong, named 9¾ Cafe after the hidden Hogwarts Express platform at King’s Cross Station in London.
On Yin Chong Street in Mong Kok, the cafe features wall-mounted wands and broomsticks, stuffed owls, portraits of witches and wizards, and candlelight (electric), reports Coconuts Hong Kong.
There is even a half-disappearing luggage trolley, as featured at King’s Cross Station, complete with Hedwig in a cage.
On the drinks menu are some Harry Potter-specific concoctions, such as the Polyjuice Potion, Amortentia love potion, golden Felix Felicis (aka “liquid luck”), and Veritaserum. Visitors 18 years and older can down a pint of Butterbeer.
For food, the cafe serves Western starters and mains named after mythical creatures and charms from the Harry Potter series, such as the soft-shell crab Aragog salad, Romanian longhorn pumpkin pasta (after one of the dragons from Goblet of Fire), and Prior Incantato cream of mushroom soup.
