Joy Luck Teahouse offers a curated menu with items from the following traditional eateries in Hong Kong such as Egg Tarts, Milk Tea, and Pineapple buns. If you’ve been to Hong Kong, you might have visited these eateries before and even spotted HK celebrities in the shops.

Hoover Cake Shop (豪華餅店)

Located in Kowloon City, this is HK actor Chow Yun-Fat’s favourite egg tart bakery. Hoover Cake shop specialises in egg tarts with two different types of crust, namely, the puff pastry and butter cookie. Smooth, wobbly and creamy, the custard is made with high-quality eggs and butter, hitting just the right note of sweetness.

Kam Kee Café (金記冰室)

Best HK-style milk tea ever. We are serious. Kam Kee Cafe’s Hong Kong Milk Tea was served at the 50th World Economic Forum Annual Meeting held in Davos, Switzerland. And here’s what we know about Kam Kee’s secret recipe, it uses a blend of superior-quality tea leaves imported from Sri Lanka, and European full cream evaporated milk is added to the brew to lend a moderately sweet flavour. Fans of HK milk tea, you really need to try this!

Besides milk tea, we are so glad to see Pineapple Bun from Kam Kee on the menu too. No trip to HK will ever be complete without this sweet-smelling bun, with a crumbly golden crust that resembles a pineapple and have the right amount of sweetness and crunch in every bite.

Tak Hing Fishball Company (德興魚蛋公司)

They called it King of Hong Kong Fishball. Tak Hing Fishball has earned a loyal following amongst HK celebrities such as Chow Yun-Fat, Paula Tsu siu-fung and Wong Cho-Lam. Why? Because they made it fresh with no flour or additives added. Your street food experience in Hong Kong won’t be satisfying without trying this classic street snack, deep-fried fish balls coated with curry sauce. And it was Hong Kong that made fish balls internationally famous.
