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.

Talk about Hong Kong-style breakfast and everyone thinks of Australian Dairy Company. Their heavenly scrambled eggs are to die for, and so are their steamed milk.

A pineapple bun, for those of you who have never heard of it, is a popular snack in Hong Kong and Macau. Also known as Bo Lo Bao, it is a pillowy soft bread with a crunchy and sugary top crust which looks like a pineapple, hence the name. There is no pineapple in the bun.
