I finally found it. The world's best tasting pineapple bun. Now I'm not from around here but I've had many, many pineapple buns from the US, and none of them compare to this. The crispy texture is worth a visit. This is a fantastic place for breakfast. You can have a full satisfying meal for $5 USD a person. That... More

Decided to try out the so called best polo bun in HK after reading all the good reviews about Kam Wah cafe. Reached there around 11pm, no queue or crowds at all with several empty tables which was good. Ordered PoloYou (polo bun with butter) which is highly recommended by almost everybody, as well as the milk tea. Surprisingly, the... More

For tea, we settled down at Kam Wah, known for their freshly baked Polo Bun and Traditional egg tart. And those who have been here vouched that Kam Wah serve the best Polo Bun in the whole of Hong Kong. You can reached there by Prince Edward MTR Exit B2 or Mong Kok East MTR, Exit B3. We were there...

Went there for the bo lo yau, but sadly was sold out for the day. Ordered an iced milk tea and some egg tarts, must say that am very satisfied with the taste and the egg tart is the best I have tried by far, on my fourth visit to HK. The egg tart wasn't over done and has a... More

Went there around 10.30am on a Monday for brunch so it's not that crowded. Lunch menu is available from 11am. That's our first time trying the buttered pineapple bun, it's a bun with crusty top & a piece of butter stuffed inside, so it had the sweet & savory taste. Personally prefer its French toast with a big piece of... More

Although pineapple bun and egg tarts are very famous, the taste is just so-so. We had brunch in this cafe. We ordered: (1) breakfast set -- egg, sausage, & ham + noodle with satay beef + tea with milk. The food is average but the tea with milk is extremely good. (2) French toast + coffee with milk. The French... More

This is a very local 茶餐廳 in Hong Kong, do not expect they can provide a very comfortable environment, just a Hong Kong style 茶餐廳。They serve very good milk tea, it's the best milk tea i've ever have! Very strong taste in tea. The bread is also yummy!

Man. When you hear that hong kong's best bolo bun is round the corner, you best go. Good but not worth the hype. Enjoyed the plain taste of the bread, something that's pretty hard to find these days. Good but not fantastic. Don't take a day out of your schedule to look for this.
