One of our fave kitchen shops has closed its doors forever (goodbye Pantry Magic, we will miss you!), so here are some other options for when you're needing to pad out your cooking equipment.

A positive paradise for cooks and bakers - this is the number one place to shop for utensils! It's made up of many different mini stores that sell literally everything you need, whether it's knives, pots and pans, crockery, baking supplies, accessories and so much more.
2. I Love Cake

Situated in Wanchai, this is another ideal place to visit if you are looking for bargain-priced kitchenware. This shop sells mostly porcelain plates, glasses, and even storage boxes. It basically has everything you need for a table setting.

4. Twins Baking Co, Wanchai
(May 2020, added by the Foodie Team)
We recently visited during the Covid baking frenzy in order attend to our baking deficiencies by buying the right stuff. It was not well stocked with flour (because they are not magic we suppose), but had everything else. We picked up a baguette baking tray, a sourdough lined proofing basket, a lame and one of those special spoon scales for very small amounts of salt and herbs and what not. Everything was very reasonably priced, and this may be one of our favourite spots.
It was very busy though, so we are not sharing any secrets here.
