Breakfast at Kam Wah Cafe

It was my first full day in Hong Kong and it was warm and sunny. I was a bit jet lagged and looking forward to having some breakfast.

Good Morning!

I was a big fan of Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway (MTR). It was super easy to use and almost impossible to get lost. At the ticket kiosk, you just select your desired destination and it tells you how much it costs. Once you’re at the platform, you can see which line is going in the direction you want above the doors. Lines are color coded and stops are written and announced in English.

I made my way to Mong Kok – an area known for its malls, shopping stalls, and various markets.

With help from my Skyroam, I was able to make my way to Kam Wah Cafe (金華冰廳). The Hong Kong-style cafe and bakery is a popular breakfast spot and famous for their Pineapple Buns.

I walked inside and the place was full. They actually have a few dining rooms. The woman pointed to a newly vacant booth where two other people joined me.

Milk Tea became my favorite beverage while I was in Hong Kong. I’m not a coffee drinker, but it did have the nice smooth consistency of it. With the warm weather, I preferred it over ice. So refreshing.

I had to order their famous Pineapple Bun. It does not contain any pineapple and is named that because of its resemblance to the fruit. I could see why people rave about it! It had a crispy browned top and the inside was warm and soft. There was a nice chunk of butter inside. It was a warm soft bun of buttery goodness.

I also had to try the Hong Kong Style French Toast. Bring on more butter! The thick white bread is deep fried giving it a very crispy outside and staying moist and soft inside. Topped with a slab of butter and some syrup, it was delightful.

My fellow breakfast patrons ordered the beef noodle soup with a side of ham, egg, and hot dog. It looked hearty and comforting.

Breakfast at Kam Wah Cafe was great. I’m still thinking about that marvelous Pineapple Bun. It was time to check out some of Mong Kok’s shopping scene before my afternoon food tour!
