Head on over to Sun Heung Yuen to be served a quintessential Hong Kong afternoon tea experience. Couple the city’s best Dahn Ngou Jee (蛋牛治, Cantonese for “Beef and Egg Sandwich”), made with fresh beef and a perfectly-cooked egg wedged between warm crispy toast, with a cup of milk tea and you’re all set to sit by and watch the diverse Sham Shui Po working crowd scurry about.
For a heartier meal, slurp into Sun Hueng Yuen’s beloved pork knuckle noodles and satay beef noodles.
Lok Yuen does French toast with an unconventional twist. Their sweet buttered toast is served with fresh beef marinated in homemade satay sauce. It’s such a huge hit that they came up with other bizarre yet mouthwatering flavors! Their recent offerings include the nostalgia-inducing Ovaltine-flavored French Toast, which hits just the right amount of flavorful and smooth without being too sweet.
Late night snacks, early morning breakfast. Will do in a pinch when craving egg and spam sandwiches or a good hk milk tea. Or noodles. Or rice. Or anything from its extensive menu. Big franchise, decent food. Questionable hygiene. Opens till 4am, and I believe opens again in early morn.
Of Wai Kee Noodle Cafe's expansive menu, my no-fail binge is a big bowl of their Beef Noodle Soup. The springy noodles, flavorful broth, and tender slices of meat all work together like magic. If you're extra hungry, fit in a slice of Kaya French Toast and Milk Tea, too!
Expect large crowds on the weekends, but their fast service might get you a seat if you’re willing to wait. Point at what you want or show a picture, as no English menus are available.
