Heirloom Eatery is one of the most hip places to have a casual brunch in HK and I have to say those fish tacos are to die for. But almost better than the food is the interior design by local creative, Candace Campos.
We share a contractor who hastened to introduce us- saying our styles are so similar that we were sure to like one another ! I am happy to say this is true. Like me, she likes to dabble in everything- creative direction, interiors, styling, jewellery (sound familiar?).
Heirloom is situated with a frontage on Hollywood Road, opposite an outdoor sitting area ( as they call a built up park in HK) and is part of the very cool Ilse Crawford designed TwoTwoSix building.
Heirloom’s interior fits very nicely with the exterior design- the brightness of the interior contrasts with the dark tile lining the exterior walls. Pale woods have been chosen, mixed with carrara marble and white tiles. The foliant balustrade emphasizes the freshness of the ingredients and leads you to the upper level where the wall colour echoes the greenery of the park opposite.
The effect is of a very sophisticated & charming tropical environment- that is HK to me, down to a tee!
I will be interviewing Candace as soon as she will let me take a pic of her! Watch this space…
