“酒香不怕巷子深”

This ancient Chinese proverb translates to ‘good food fears no dark alley’, meaning that a quality product needs no advertising.

At Alley Food & Mood, we embody this proverb by serving truly authentic Chinese dishes from Sichuan and northern China, as well as delicious desserts only found in Hong Kong.
