Expensive But Good

Waited in this line for a few minutes after hiking through central to find. Sit down area was crowded and i did not deem it necessary to dine in. Had the milk tea which was rather expensive (worked out to be like $3-4 USD). The tea was great; not life changing but good!

Went here at the recommendation of a HK friend. She hadn't gone before but it was popular and also had good reviews. (I suppose good reviews by persons who hadn't explored much of HK, maybe) We trudged all the way there. Asked a mall concierge how to go there too. She was very kind and gave us good directions. She... More

We got the Iced Stocking Milk Tea to go. Maybe it's because I don't have an appreciation for milk tea in the first place that I just felt like this was ok. Once again, not sure if it's because I'm from the States but the portion is definitely on the small side (think McD's Happy Meal drink size).

Didn't drink in but it was interesting watching as the staff quickly and efficiently cleared queue after queue of people waiting to get in, while serving take away drinks as well. The tea (cha) was similar to tea I've had in other restaurants, but apparently Lan Fong Yuen was the inventor. I also had Yen Yuen(?) a blend of tea... More

Long q but wait was pretty short as turnover was quick. There are, however, separate queues for takeaways and to get in. Iced Milk Tea & Chicken Chop Noodles were renowned and did not disappoint.

Famous for its Hong Kong style tea and coffee. Tried the one in TST when it first opened and was totally disappointed. This time, we went to the original shop for breakfast and found the drinks quite good. Was impressed by the toasted butter slap pineapple bun. However, they can certainly afford to serve using less aged cups. Other food... More

We went smack at lunch hour but got a table fairly quickly. Be prepared to share tables though. The aunty who took our order was quite impatient but lunch crowd and minimal menu selection, so I guess she didn't understand why we found it so difficult to make a choice. Most of their meals come in a set, so I... More

The tea tastes far too sweet for my liking. In fact it masked the taste of the tea, and tasted more like sugared water. It's quite an icon, so I am still glad I tried it. But no repeat orders.

We heard the name of its famed milk tea many times, but when we went and tried it, we were very disappointed. My wife said that the milk tea we had had breakfast at the South China Hotel was even better! And yet, the price there is absolutely ridiculous. No wonder nearly all customers there had an outlook of tourists,... More

Went there with a friend following a guide book. The place was not that nice to sit but food was good. We had pork bun and toasts with the milk tea. Good spot for snacking while exploring HK. ;)

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.
