Used to come here very often with my colleagues for lunch. The Dai Pa Dong (street stall) on photo 6 was our favourite place. Back then, they had a powerful stove for stir fried noodle/rice. Unfortunately, due to the complaint from the residents in the neighbourhood, they got to close that down and now that Dai Pa Dong only served toasted and milk tea. The other one went to open another shop (photo 10 Keung Kee). Though they still serve the fried rice/noodle, it's not the same, simply because those old powerful stove can only work in open area.
Saw the original Epoch again (the last 2nd photo). It was the first cafe having a live DJ and a wide selection of alternate, chill out and lounge music, back to the late 90's. Since then, this area has been growing with a lot more hip and trendy shops.
