I nearly missed this shop. It was like hidden beside a food shop selling noodles and I saw the signboard and it rang a familiar bell. I tried their soft red bean pancakes. U definitely need to have them while they're hot. Once cold, not nice I managed to have tea inside the restaurant as well. The strange rule was... More

A friend (who lives locally in Kowloon) rec'd this place to try in Cheung Chau. It's very popular & crowded as it has been written up by Frommers & NYTimes. It is just a couple of blocks off the main path from the swimming beach. There is a walk-up window where you can order snacks. They are famous for their... More

I grew up on Cheung Chau, I've known The Yoshino couple (owners) since I was a tot, and I've been hooked on their sushi my whole 22 years, so my review would technically be biased as I'm a friend.

Yes, you read that right, it is called Hometown Tea House and is run by a Japanese lady, Takahiko-san, who has lived in Hong Kong for 28 years.

If you are the type of person that is always looking for something different than the norm where ever you are... Then this is a great place to check out..! As having been to Japan before, I can say that these are the best red bean pancakes that I have had outside Japan... If you are not familiar with these... More

We saw this mentioned in Lonly Planet but did not know what we were letting ourselves in for. The food is served through was looks like the kitchen window. When we arrived there were no tables outside (on the pavement) but the owner found us a table, set it up and really looked after us. The menu is limited but... More
