Hong Kong style breakfast
Australia Dairy Company
Our first feature in our Hong Kong travel guide is Australia Dairy Company – an establishment which is highly popular for its serving of Hong Kong style breakfast!
It was founded in 1970 and it’s still enjoying its popularity as one of the best and oldest restaurants in the city. All the fuss about their scrambled egg, macaroni and toasts are for real and their steamed milk is also something you must try. It might take a couple of minutes of waiting time to be seated but the long queue is worth the wait because this restaurant serves only the best food there is.
Address: G / F, 47-49 Barker Street, Jordan
Business hours: Monday to Wednesday, Friday to Sunday 7:30am to 11:00pm; Closed on Thursdays and public holidays
Kam Fung Restaurant
Before you start shopping in Hong Kong, you might want to get into some gastronomical action by dining at Kam Fung Restaurant – one of the most popular restaurants in the city. You’ll often find great reviews of Kam Fung Restaurant in numerous Hong Kong food guides, but it’s really no surprise because it lives up to everyone’s expectations.
Its highly popular chicken pie and polo bun are both a must-try when you dine here. Kam Fung Restaurant has been around since 1956 and apparently has not yet lost its charm and magic in preparing delicious food.
Address: G / F, Chun Yuen Building, 41 Chun Yuen Street, Wan Chai
Business Hours: 6:45am to 7:00pm

The idea of opening up Brick Lane, one of the tourist attractions in Hong Kong, was due to the nostalgia of its three owners. They were reminiscing about their British comfort food which was mainly all-day breakfast and eggs benedict on the side. They also wanted to bring the vibe of East London’s Brick Lane as an eclectic mix into the bustling city of Hong Kong.
So thanks to the owners of Brick Lane, you don’t have to fly to London to get a feel of their gastronomical food, today, it takes just a few minute walk from Pacific Place and you’re up for some British breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
Address: Shop 40, 4th Floor, CITIC Tower, 1 Tim Mei Road, Admiralty
