We had read about this rather popular Cha Chan Teng 茶餐廳 and decided to come here for breakfast before doing the heritage trail on our 2nd day in Hong Kong!
At 10am on a hot Saturday morning, there was a relatively long queue. Thankfully, the queue moved rather fast and we were seated within 10 minutes.
We ordered 黑松露炒蛋多士 Scrambled Eggs with Truffle on Toast (HKD 40)，特色猪扒包 Devil’s Pork Chop Bun (HKD 20), Coffee and Milk Tea. The scrambled eggs were really very excellent! Moist and buttery, it was an oh-so-heavenly breakfast option! The thick toast was soft and went well with the eggs. The pork chop bun was really a devil because of the very spicy wasabi mayonnaise 😮
Note that Chrisly Cafe is also known as Capital Cafe.

Iconic red and green push cart
What is a trip to Hong Kong without going to a Cha Chan Teng 茶餐廳?
Lan Fong Yuen 蘭芳園 started as a dai pai dong 大排檔 in 1952 and is supposed to be very famous for stocking milk tea 絲襪奶茶 and pork chop bun 豬扒包 and we just gotta come here after our latte 🙂
Pork Chop Bun, Yuen Yong and Milk Tea
The small eatery kept the iconic signboard and dai pai dong cart (which you can instantly recognize from many travel magazines) and had only a few tables within the full-of-Alan Tham-pictures-wall. We had 金牌豬扒包+凍絲襪奶茶 Pork Chop Bun + Iced Milk Tea (HKD 34) and 凍秘製鴛鴦 Iced Yuen Yong (HKD 20).
I loved the strong milky tea! I’m really not sure how they do it, but it was oh-so-smooth, happiness in a cup! The yuen yong and pork chop bun were pretty standard fare though.
