Gough Street, 2015

Gough Street (Chinese: 歌賦街) is a street on Sheung Wan, Hong Kong just north of the Soho area of Central. It is connected to Shing Wong Street to the west and Aberdeen Street to the east.

Historically, many printing presses were located on Gough Street. Kau Kee Restaurant, a noodle shop that specializes in beef brisket noodles in clear soup (清湯牛腩) is also located there. In the last several years, a lot of the printing presses moved to other areas and new restaurants and bars began to move into the premises vacated by the printing presses. Now, there have many international fashion brands and high class home furnishings open.

The street is named for Hugh Gough, 1st Viscount Gough, Commander-in-Chief of British Forces in China.

Currently, the Gough Street has developed into a hip place in Noho. Not to mention the infamous Kau Kee Restaurant, there are more to eat and to see.
