    Kitchen things - buy in HK or online?

    Hi guys - do you guys buy your kitchen stuff (knife sets / plates / cutlery etc) in HK or online?

    I usually buy stuff on Amazon as it is way cheaper. Have never bought kitchen stuff on Amazon l though. Any recommendations - online or in HK, for both price and service - greatly appreciated. Went to Pantry Magic today and stuff was exxy!!

    I get most of my stuff in Shanghai Street. Good selection and good prices.

    Agree Shanghai street has the best selection in HK. Take you time and go into some of the less fancy shops who may be the agent for premium brands for the hotel industry and have lower prices than the shops.

    Why is it you're looking for exactly?

    Shipping from overseas is costly. Haven't tried Shanghai Street but I will now. Thanks for the photos!

    I second Shanghai Street - good stuff at good prices, there are plenty of local brands there too which make knives, chopping boards and miscellaneous stuff, I'm very happy with the knives I've bought for ~$150HKD - get a sharpening stick/stone and keep it sharp

    Also, don't discount or write off Taobao if you are looking for some single items / unique stuff. Some interesting gadgets / clones of expensive stuff available.

    Needless to say, the electrical stuff may be crap .. but in general low tech items are ok.
