1) Australian Dairy Company (澳洲牛奶公司)

Day 6 in Hong Kong : Australia Dairy Company (澳洲牛奶公司) @ Jordan 佐敦

Australian Dairy Company 澳洲牛奶公司 is one of the famous cha chaan teng in Hong Kong. Service is quite bad here; you have to order fast, eat fast and be prepared to queue for an hour just to get a table :/ Why come here then? Coz they serve the best scrambled egg with toast! The scrambled egg is very fluffy, crispy outside but soft inside….its just purr-fect!!!

Breakfast set here is similar to Australian Dairy Co. but with better service. By the way, pork chop bun @ Capital Cafe is delicious!

We tried Mido Cafe during our previous HK trip and we decided to re-visit Mido Cafe again Coz we missed the food there.

Mido Cafe 美都餐室 is famous Coz it’s one of the oldest cafe in HK and it’s often used as backdrops in HK films and HK dramas. To-date, it’s decor remains the same; retro furnitures, mosaic tiles and bench seats. Mido Cafe’s signature dishes include Baked Spare Ribs with Tomato Sauce Rice 蕃茄焗排骨饭 and French Toast 西多士.

This baked pork ribs rice with tomato sauce is Mido Cafe's (美都餐室) :signature dish. It's superbly delicious that I feel like ordering another one.

Headed to Kam Wah Cafe 金華冰廳 for their freshly baked polo and egg tart.

Besides egg tart, HK is famous for its polo bao 菠蘿包. Kam Wah Cafe 金華冰廳 at Mongkok is the best place to go for freshly baked polo bao or also known as pineapple bun (there’s actually no pineapple inside). You can also try their egg tarts and French toast which I personally think is average but their signature polo bao is the best.

8) Yung Kee Restaurant (鏞記酒家)

Yung Kee (鏞記)

When in Hong Kong, one of the must eat is definitely roast goose. It’s also a popular food souvenir to buy back for your family and friends. Yung Kee Restaurant 鏞記酒家 in Central is well known for its century egg and roast goose. The roast goose at Yung Kee has a crispy crackling skin and the meat is juicy. Eat it with their plum sauce- it’s just heavenly. You’ve got to order their famous century egg appetizer too – it’s very yummy!

One of the famous street food in HK has got to be egg waffles or also known as eggettes. While most people will go North Point for egg waffles, I personally love the egg waffles from Mammy Pancake 媽咪雞蛋仔. There are a variety of flavors to choose from chocolate, chocolate chip, taro, green tea and red bean, sesame, cheese, sweet potato, original and mango to name a few. The bite sized egg waffles are superbly crispy on the outside but inside it’s very soft. Just can’t stop biting it!

Yue Hing 裕興大排檔 is a Dai Pai Dong stall in Central serving simple but superbly delicious sandwiches and instant noodles. The menu is fairly simple : you either order sandwich or noodles 🙂 One of the must order at Yue Hing 裕興大排檔 is their perfectly toasted sandwich with ham, vegetables and generously slathered with peanut butter (yes, it’s peanut butter)! It’s sinfully delicious! Also, their instant noodles are served with luncheon meat omelette which is very good! It may not be a healthy choice of breakfast but you wouldn’t mind the calories Coz it’s seriously good 😉

Yue Hing 裕興大排檔 : I opt for Sandwich Combo A which is Ham, Scrambled Egg & Vegetable Sandwich with Peanut Butter (Yes, it's peanut butter

Yue Hing 裕興大排檔 : The sausage & SPAM omelette was good! I took a few bite and I tot it's probably the best instant noodle I've had! Hahaha The noodles are springy and goes well with the sausage & SPAM omelette. Yummy!

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
