Legendary Hong Kong Milk Tea

The minimal spending in the shop is HKD25 per person. We ordered a breakfast set which came with Pineapple bun and milk tea. The waiter did give us time to look at the menu before we made our order, noticing we were not locals. The food was nice but the service was so-so.

Just buy the take-out iced milk tea which is awesome! Currently priced at HKD20. It's an photogenic spot too being on a slope.

This was well worth the visit and hype - simple and comfort food with great flavors. Loved the pork bun while the pork chop noddles were a flop due to the sauce on top - guess we ordered wrong and should have asked for a dry one. All in all - well worth a visit!

It was crowded as usual, and we waited for about 15 minutes. The waiter was impolite and gave us extremely "black face" while we were ordering food. 蔥油雞撈麵with a milk tea costs me $49, the noodles is terrible but milk tea is nice.

Again we came upon this famous landmark through our food tour guide and too, was a great favourite for me. I must admit when I sipped on the milk tea it took me back to my younger days, when the use of carnation milk was sometimes all that was available. It's worth watching the tea maker in action brewing and... More

If you don't like very busy and noisy places where the service is not great, don't go here! I also wouldn't take kids who expect a McD or so. We love the food and that is something to bear in mind; it is an eating experience. From local perspective and flavor. And you order and get food, you are not... More

Had lunch here this afternoon with my fiancee and friend. We couldn't get into a local teahouse so we found Lan Fong Yuen while wondering around the area. There was a 10 minute wait on the street outside to get in. The waiter spoke enough english we could order easily, and he was pretty funny! The food was not amazing,... More

Lan Fong Yuen is located along the same row as Tai Cheong bakery in Central. We were there on Jan 1st but the queue was so long that it was almost spilling onto the main road. We returned the following Monday and surprisingly there was not much of a queue. We ordered a cup of milk tea to-go (tabao in... More

There are cafes (茶餐厅) and there's Lan Fong Yuen. It's an old traditional HK style cafe. It probably hasn't been renovated since it first opened for business, but no matter, we were there for the old hong kong cafe feel, hence I must warn readers not to go if you expect 5-star service or ambience. We went around 4pm, so... More

we love the milk tea, and you can go next door to try on their roasted pork, chicken and duck. staff are cool (not rude) so suggest you to decide what you want to order by not wasting too much of their time waiting for you.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
