Very best Hongkong Milk Tea

Relying on Google Map and Smartphone location services in this part of Hongkong was a bad idea to try and find this small HK coffee shop, famous with the locals for the best Hongkong Milk Tea. The buildings and narrow streets blocked out most of the GPS signal, and our 7 minutes walk uphill, became... read more

Pork Chop Bun is the classic dish and must try when you visit. It is not the place for you to stay long or to catch up with friends, but overall a worthing trying place if you visit Hong Kong.

They get u in but quite reluctant to take orders, regardless of the abandon number of staff. They have minimum charge, just a place for tourist.

Came to experience the rave and was not disappointed. The milk tea was smooth and fragrant, pork bun was good. Like most popular eatery, you sit just 3 inches away from sweaty stranger during summer. Staff efficient but not rude

Just visited this place and I don't understand the complaints from other reviewers. It is an authentic place, with very hardworking staff (mainly older people) who do their best to serve the customers. Nothing more, nothing less. As there were also local HK customers I guess the main business isn't to serve tourists who don't speak the local language, but... More

This place has crazy queues as it supposedly came up with Hong Kong's milk tea as we know it. The food is actually fine and the milk tea is as it should be, rich, sweet and with condensed milk. But all this you can get at any Hong Kong cha chaan teng. Crowded with locals and tourists, you will share... More

Love the food there and the price is very reasonable. For a set meal of marcaroni soup, eggs n hotdogs and famous milk tea it only cost me less than HKD40. The staffs are friendly, and I can't speak cantonese so I spoke in mandarin, and they are still very smiley in their reply.

I've only been here for drinks (milk tea, coffee, lemon coke), so can't speak to the food inside (other reviews do this). The milk tea is exactly what Hong Kongers who live overseas dream about: thick, rich, the right balance. I agree with mpenzakc that you could just get the take-out milk tea and enjoy it on your walk around... More

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.

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.
