We’re finally coming to an end with my HK food posts and this will feature the HK version of our kopitiams or cha chan tengs (茶餐厅) as they are widely known. They serve all sorts of food, from the humble toast to sandwiches, and now noodle dishes, including instant noodle variants. And what better drink to pair up with these than the milky tea HK’s famous for?
Hong Kong Day (香港地) is located at just next to Madame Tussaud’s at The Peak. Brilliant location and also great for us to rest our weary feet after doing the wax museum tour.
Had hot lemon in this eye catching cup which is probably proudly sponsored by the brand. Hehe. I did have a cup of their milky tea towards the end of the meal, and it was rather creamy and rich.
Pork chop with onion sauce and rice. We were not very hungry to be honest, but wanted to try their special of the day so shared this.
Food was alright, prices are a tad on the high side considering the location but it was really the location that swung the deal for us. Could rest our feet while people watching… rather hilarious watching the antics of those posing with Bruce Lee (one of the wax celebrities you didn’t have to pay to see as it was outside the museum).
We were hunting for breakfast around the Tsim Tsa Tsui area and could only spot fast food chains or 7-11s that were open. Somehow, we stumbled upon Yuen Kee (源记茶餐厅).
Polo Bao (菠萝包) which has no pineapple in it. Only called one because of the pattern on the bun’s top that resembles a pineapple’s rind. The crackly pattern comes from the light topping made of sugar and butter and the bun itself is soft and mildly sweet and particularly yummy when paired with a slab of melting butter.
My egg and corn beef sandwich. Sliced white bread here is soft and fluffy, as if it had been “steamed” before used. They’re good at cooking eggs at this consistency which I haven’t managed to master 😛
Everyone’s favourite – egg and luncheon meat sandwich. Simple, but satisfying. 🙂
