Shop9 is located on the less busy side of Third Street.  Third Street has been getting all the attention as of late as restaurants that can no longer afford the Central/LKF/Soho rents are moving out to Sai Ying Pun.  This exodus of talent to Sai Ying Pun has created a bustling avenue of trendy restaurants on Third Street off the escalator.  Although most restaurants are empty outside of Friday and Saturday begging the question how long can they hold out before gentrification really steps in.

Shop 9 is situated on the roof top away from ground level.  It has a giant patio making it great for private parties.  Prices are reasonable and the food is good.  It could use a larger selection of more adventurous beers.0600

I’m not usually a fan of risotto but this was not half bad.  I enjoyed the soft shell crab.

Scallops are easy to cook so they give out a decent amount.  It’s always tough to cook in a restaurant setting as everything has to made quickly and thrown together.  This one could use more seasoning and less cracked pepper.
