We were expecting very long queues that snaked around the front. To our surprise, there was no queue on a weekday morning after 8am. Customers do not linger around. They order, eat , pay and then leave.
Fresh milk from a local dairy farm.
The staff here are notorious for their rude and nasty service, but I was surprised that they were fairly nice to us. We were taken to a vacant table and a hardcover English menu resembling a photo book was handed to us. Then we ordered and the waiter nodded his head and quickly disappeared to the kitchen. I've read that unless you spoke Cantonese you might have difficulty ordering so we prepared in advance in case we weren't given an English menu.
Ordering a set menu is much cheaper than ordering individual items. The breakfast set costs HKD 32, and includes either a coffee or milk tea, scrambled or fried eggs with buttered toast and a bowl of macaroni and ham in chicken soup. Now that's excellent value for money. The only problem is actually finishing the meal as the portion size is rather large for one.
The thick slices of toast were slightly buttered just how I like it. The star of the dish was the scrambled eggs. Perfectly cooked eggs that were fluffy, moist and tasty. A simple yet satisfying dish.
I really liked the macaroni and ham soup. The macaroni was al-dente and the addition of the ham on the top gave it a nice balance with the slightly salty chicken soup. Comforting on a cold and rainy day.
The milk tea had a strong black tea flavour and was an acquired taste. I much prefer coffee over milk tea.
The fried eggs on a buttered toast was pretty decent too. For those who aren't too hungry or after a lighter meal the single toast option is better.
