1. Monsieur CHATTÉ
Monsieur CHATTÉ is an authentic French gourmet shop located in Sheung Wan. All of their products are sourced directly from European farms (mostly French). At Monsieur CHATTÉ, you can expect high-quality products available at reasonable pricing. While many products are available for you to purchase and take home, you can also choose to dine-in.
For just $55, you can get their Light Lunch Set consisting of a quiche or a small sandwich, a small green salad, and a drink of your choice.
If you’re on a low-carb diet, the salad bar is a terrific option. There are lots of options, and you can add extra protein.
If you’re eating lunch instore, look around. You will almost always see French people enjoying their lunch. This is certainly a good endorsement.
If you prefer, online shopping is also available. From wine to cheese and spreads to cold cuts, they have all the fine foods you could ask for and more. In addition, they even offer caviar and homemade foie grass.
If you have events that you need catering for, Monsieur CHATTÉ is a good choice as well.

2. Cheese Club
In Hong Kong, quality cheeses are generally sold at such high prices that it is impossible to buy them without draining your paycheque. This is where the Cheese Club comes in.
Frustrated with the availability of cheese in Hong Kong, two French entrepreneurs developed a unique ordering system.
At the beginning of each month, the Cheese Club organizes a bulk purchase directly with their European suppliers. Customers in Hong Kong then have one week to place an order. Once the bulk order arrives in Hong Kong from Europe, individual purchases are packaged up and delivered straight to people’s homes.
The Cheese Club tends to focus on seasonal products and thus the products will change every month. With this business model, a brand of cheese that sells for $180 at supermarkets will only cost $59 at the Cheese Club. We heard about the Cheese Club directly from a French resident in Hong Kong. We were not disappointed with their mouth-watering offerings.
