This was really a hole-in-the-wall shop, with only 1 table and 1 chair. But it certainly did not hinder its popularity though, for there was a streaming flow of people doing take-aways early in the morning at 8am.
We decided to try the Cofftea (HKD 35), which was a combination of latte and chai tea (a Western take on 鴛鴦 Yin-Yang). The coffee overpowered the chai, and so it was a tad too strong for me, but hubby enjoyed it very much.
To complete our breakfast, we also had a Blueberry Muffin (HKD 22) which was pretty moist and delicious, though a bit too sweet for us.
A popular supper dim sum place that opens everyday at 3am, we were very keen to try out the specialty 流沙飽 Custard Bun here!
We arrived at 4am, and there was only 1 available table by the entrance. The lady allowed us to change seats once another table was available, and we ended up having a good view of the kitchen!
We started by ordering 普洱 Pu-er (HK$7 per pax), our default choice.
Shortly after, we had some awesome huge 時菜四寶紮 Cabbage Rolls that were just steamed. There were so many ingredients wrapped within the cabbage!
Then, we just hung around sipping our tea, till the next item that caught our eyes – 山竹牛肉球 Beef Balls. We liked the texture and flavour 🙂
We waited for a good 1 hour before they started making the 流沙飽 Custard Buns. Finally, at 5:15am, a fresh batch of custard buns appeared! We were glad we waited for these awesome sweet and salty buns with flowy salted egg goodness!
Prices of the dim sum that we had ranged from 小點 (HK$17), 中點 (HK$18), to 大點 (HK$19), making this a really affordable meal!
