Tsui Wah—Hong Kong’s famous cha chaan teng—is finally opening in Singapore! Locals and tourists alike flock to Tsui Wah Restaurant for their signature Hainanese chicken rice, fishball noodles, and Bo Luo Bao.
One of the primary reasons why we always enjoy our time in Hong Kong is, of course, the food. Hong Kong has many restaurants with different types of cuisine but those can never win our love for its local food.
Dine in a local Cha Chaan Teng (literal translation: Tea Restaurant) over local casual fare such as wanton noodles and roast meat rice, or venture into the streets and get yourself some curry fishballs, egg tarts or even the ever popular egglets.
On a budget? No worries; we are going to show you how you can stuff yourself silly with a small budget. Here is How to Conquer the Best of Hong Kong’s Local Food in A Day With S$50.
Renowned Hong Kong brand Tai Cheong Bakery officially opens a full-fledged Cha Chaan Teng in Holland Village today. Everyone knows Tai Cheong Bakery—after all, it is the mother of all egg tarts!
Unsurprisingly, a long queue is already formed outside the Cantonese restaurant; everyone is eager to try Tai Cheong Bakery’s legendary egg tarts (S$1.90 each).
Signature egg tarts aside, you can now look forward to a one-page menu of authentic cha chaan teng dishes. We are talking about classic Hong Kong delicacies such as Beef Brisket Curry Rice (S$9.90), Hong Kong Milk Tea (hot – S$2, cold – S$2.50) and Bolo Bun (S$2.20).
Holland V dwellers, brace yourselves—your neighbourhood is going to be even more crowded than before!
Local Cha Chaan Teng Chau Kee in Hong Kong has become quite an Instagram sensation with its splendid Golden Lava French Toasts. While our love for Liu Sha Baos remains eternal, we got to admit that we have too taken a liking to these fluffy French toasts with a Cantonese twist.
Of course, Golden Lava French Toast is not the only item being sold here. Chau Kee’s comprehensive menu includes an impressive selection of handcrafted dim sums and Chinese-style dishes such as Siu Mais and Silver Pin Noodles.
Due to Chau Kee’s overwhelming popularity, guests will have to wait up to at least 20 to 30 minutes before getting a seat.
Famous Hong Kong cha chaan teng Honolulu Café has officially opened its inaugural international outpost in Singapore and we had the honour to savour their menu firsthand just a few hours ago.
Local chefs from Hong Kong’s Honolulu Café are also sent to Singapore to ensure that the dishes served here remain similar to the flagship store’s.
Honolulu Café was founded in Hong Kong during the 1940s, where it started out as a humble eatery selling coffee, tea and baked confectionery. The casual eatery is renowned for their scrumptious egg tarts, pineapple buns and Hong Kong milk tea – we are glad that we no longer have to board a four-hour flight just to satisfy our cravings!
Hong Kong’s famous cha chaan teng Honolulu Cafe is opening in Singapore! Famous for its egg tarts with flaky pastry, it will open a 1,500 sq ft restaurant with 50 seats at The CentrePoint in Orchard Road at the end of April 2016. We will go out on a limb to say that Honolulu Cafe has the best egg tarts in Hong Kong.
Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe is arguably the biggest name in the local Hong Kong ‘Cha Chaan Teng’-style restaurant scene. When you think of Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe, you think affordable prices, comfort food and a relaxing casual ambience.
In conjunction with their 10th anniversary celebration, Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe has launched a specially curated #AWESOMELY10 menu. Since their first outlet opened in Heartland Mall (which is also their flagship outlet), 19 other outlets have popped up in every corner of Singapore; there is definitely an outlet near you.
What we love best about Xin Wang is that most outlets are open till 2am to cater to the late-night dining crowd. With an entire menu priced S$15 and below, we learned lately that all the dishes are cooked a la minute to ensure freshness and tastiness.
Here are some highlights from the #AWESOMELY10 menu and some other signature dishes that are ever popular.
There are many things to eat in Hong Kong, but one of the must-eats is definitely roast goose. A good roast goose has plump, juicy and tender meat with crisp skin.

Hong Kong has many good roast goose restaurants – you can find one on every street – but we will save you the trouble and share with you 6 of the best roast goose restaurants in Hong Kong.
