Les Nuits Rouges du Bourreau de Jade - Carrie Ng (2010) - China Cafe, Mongkok

The China Cafe (中國冰室) is a venue that will perhaps be more familiar to fans of local Hong Kong movies (Daniel Thomas lists at least 3 films that have used it) so it's nice to see it pop up in a film intended for a non-local market. It has a mezzanine level that is common in businesses in older buildings. It gives the place some character but I always look at these and imagine the owner of the business quietly lamenting the loss of floor space for extra tables...
