What we love…
- People come here for one thing, and one thing only—scrambled eggs. Perfectly folded, fluffy, wet, and served on white bread dripping with butter—these are quite possibly the best eggs you'll ever have.
- The menu is a bit limited. There's a "breakfast set" (served 7:30 am-noon, HK$26), a "fast food set" (anytime, HK$26), and a "tea time set" (noon to 11pm, HK$33). The breakfast set is eggs, toast, macaroni and ham soup, and hot/cold milk tea. We can feel you scrunching your face up about the macaroni and ham soup for breakfast, but ham at breakfast is normal and macaroni is good any time so get over it. The fast food set is the same as the breakfast set, but the ham is on the eggs, sans soup, and the tea time set is barbecued pork instead of ham. You could order things a la carte, but unless you read Chinese and you're lighting fast, you'll feel rushed and get attitude from the waiters.
- The food is delightful, it's basically all-day breakfast, and who doesn't love breakfast right? The scrambled eggs are some of the best we've had, and if you ever had the pleasure of warm custard for breakfast when you were a kid, this will bring back cozy comfort food memories. To top it all off everything is super cheap, two people can leave full and happy for less than $10 USD.
- You will be in for a bit of a wait since there's ALWAYS a line. But because there's only a few things on the menu you'll receive your food only minutes after ordering, and as we mentioned above, these waiters get you in and out pretty quickly. They also pack in the customers so don't be surprised if you end up sitting next to a stranger, a common practice at a cha chaan teng (Chinese tea house).
- You should also make a point to try the uber popular Hong Kong style milk tea. In Hong Kong milk tea is akin to espresso in Italy, in that making it is a craft that tea connoisseurs work diligently to perfect it. It is created from boiling a proprietary blend of black tea that is then strained several times and mixed with evaporated or condense milk. You can drink it hot or cold over ice, and it's served all day, but popular during lunch time. It was originally nicknamed 'panty hose tea', as it was originally strained through a large silk fabric tubes that resembled panty hose. Don't worry there is no panty hose here, just strainers and delicious tea.
