Alongside this programme, Sha Kok Commercial Centre is also unveiling a new recreational area dedicated to art and leisure outside its mushroom-shaped cooked food stalls.

Shatin Outing guide to local hotspots

The travel guidebook Shatin Outing tells the story of Sha Tin from different angles, covering everything from its origins to instagrammable hideaways such as Lower Shing Mun Reservoir; Tai Wai Pink Footbridge, the Che Kung Temple Sports Centre and the Shing Mun Riverside etc.

Sha Tin District is culture, history, good food, architecture and leisure rolled into one. Every public housing estate in Sha Tin, from Wo Che Estate to Sha Kok Estate and from Hin Keng Estate to Mei Lam Estate, has its own architectural character. Sha Kok Commercial Centre’s iconic cooked food stall, lovingly dubbed the “Mushroom Pavilion”, is a perfect place to savour the myriad tastes of Hong Kong, such as stir-fried dishes, traditional Cantonese cuisine and delectable tea sets.

The Shatin Outing guidebook will be distributed for free at over 30 cafés in Kowloon and the New Territories, including Uchi Coffee and The Alchemist Café in Sha Tin and Coffee Slave in Kwun Tong. Come and grab your copy now!
