This place is easy to miss. Do take note that it is just before the supermarket if you're walking from Lyndhurst Terrace. There is a pictorial menu (see picture) so no worries about not speaking Cantonese. I had the chicken chop noodles, which was nice, but the condensed milk buns was average at best. The milk tea which we had,... More

If you want traditional HK style milk tea made in a silk stocking (without wallowing through a wet market) this is it. It's authentic, good, cheap and fast.

Food is nothing special, and you can find similar quality in practically any cafe at Hong Kong. It is no wonder that its ranking at Tripadvisor is mediocre but surprise that it is scoring quite well in general food review sites.

I stayed in Soho and paid homage to this institution. The milk tea was good. Not too sweet and very flavorful. The buns were light and fluffy. I suggest going at least once for the experience.

Made famous because of their HK milk tea sold in a little stall, they have expanded into a shophouse nearby. Its an institution in Central and a tourist magnet now. The famous tea is a slightly better cuppa compared to other char chan teng, and food is average. But if you are in Central area, its worth visiting just to... More

It is a cha chaan teng cafe that is a tad smaller than the rest but still has a decent customer turnover rate. Ordered myself a cup of chilled nai cha which was so refreshing after the long walks around the area. Sweet success indeed!

This place is a tourist destination by itself with a long history of establishment. Its famous for its milk tea which is pleasant but I find sometimes it can be pretty strong, sometimes pretty weak. The pork chop bun is easier to eat than other places. I had versions where the meat is too dry, bit overcooked and with no... More
