There have been suggestions to check out the noodles and pork chop bun but my personal preference is the toast. Doesn't look wow wow at all but it's a taste that u can't forget. I m not a fan of toast prior to eating here. The toast is so gd I ordered 2 portion. Despite the typical hk service level(I... More

During our heritage walk in Central HK, we came across this restaurant which is so authentic from the look to the food. There is a minimum spend of 25hkd per pax (sorry i dont really remember the exact amount but it should not be exceeding $40hkd per pax). I have to say that you can find a typical hong kong... More

Authentic Hong Kong Cafe. We stayed along Hollywood Road and asked the hotel staff to recommend local eats in the area and they immediately suggested LFY. Didn't manage to find it in the first instance and needed some directions before we find this place tucked away behind the busy street. Some quick facts on LKY: - opens from 730am to... More

5 mins walk from Exchange Square using the travelator to this small and hidden Eatery. Just go for the pork chop bun as it is the softest and most tender pork chop I have ever tasted(though abit small). Decent milk tea as well. Go early to avoid the crowd.

I've been looking for a good local breakfast spot that doesn't only serve English breakfast and decided to give this one a try. I got off Central MTR and had to ask directions mid way from the locals since Google Map didn't seem to point the right current location (not sure if it's just me or not). Anyway, finally found...

The noodles are so-so. The bread is toasted. Milk tea not too bad. Do note that a minimum spending hkd25 is applicable to each. Staff are not too friendly too.

We were taken to Lan Fong Yuen while on a walking tour around Hong Kong. We really enjoyed the French toast, and we also tried the milk/ tea/coffee. The atmosphere in and around the restaurant was what we had expected of Hong Kong, busy, loud and full on. Would definitely recommend to pay a visit here.

Old hawker turned restaurant. What used to be a street hawker survived for more than 60 years. Simple food from toast to noodles and milk tea served the Hong King community throughout the years. Food: Good stuff from toast, chicken chop noodles, Chui Chui Chu, milk tea from old stove. Ambient: old Hong Kong feel. Be ready for crowds. Price:... More

I'm never crazy about French toast but the 1 served here is pretty good! We actually went back a 2nd time during the trip for the milk tea and crispy bun with condensed milk which was really good the 1st time we had it there. Hubby insisted on ordering the french toast cox he saw it on many tables and... More

Background- Iconic 大排檔 where the silk stocking milk tea (丝袜奶茶) was said to have been invented. Small place with about 40 seats. Queues can be long even outside of meal times. Food- Chicken Steak Instant Noodles (HKD 51 inclusive of their famed Stocking milk tea 丝袜奶茶. Add 2 HKD if you want ice) was pretty good. Noodles were run off... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
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.
