Cheung Sing Cafe - HK

Cheung Sing Cafe, a popular Cha Chan Teng in Happy Valley, is conveniently located right next to the bus stop. It almost makes sense that they have two floors and a quick serve counter for busy Hong Kongers.

Simple straightforward menus and cheap prices
The breakfasts come with a milk tea or coffee, two eggs and toast (for under $33 HKD)

Macaroni and ham with fried eggs

Pickled vegetables and pork vermicelli
Fast, easy, tasty and cheap - that's what it's all about

Since breakfast was so inexpensive, we decided to come back and grab a quick dinner after our trip to Sheung Shui.

Dinner is still pretty cheap for under $55 HKD

Dried bok choy soup with pork (choy kon tong)
Simple and tasty with pork bone and bok choy

Beef and Broccoli
The beef and broccoli was really good; there was a lot of sauce and the flavour was all there. Yum!

Spaghetti with Fish Filet covered in Portuguese Sauce
I was seriously craving something other than Chinese food, so I asked for Asian style spaghetti. I got this huge plate of spaghetti with fish filet and sweet Portuguese sauce for $52. The fish was soft (almost mushy), but it worked well with the Portuguese sauce.

Oxtail hotpot
The oxtail was enjoyable with some tender meat (it might have been fall-off-the-bone tender with a little more time). I liked the ketchup based sauce with sweet onions and carrot as it added sweetness to the bowl and made a good pairing with white Jasmine rice.

Wow, it's kind of crazy looking back and realizing that the last time I ate here was almost exactly a year ago! What would I do without my food blog? haha

 We arrived in time for a late lunch.
So we ordered some cha siu vermicelli, pork vermicelli and a fried egg and bun combo which was all delicious and super cheap (they even came with complementary drinks and of course, we got the delicious milk tea).

 This deliciously smooth and tasty milk tea goes well with everything!

The next morning, we went back again for a take out breakfast of buns

Hot dog buns (or sausage bun), ham and egg bun and a raisin twist
All of the buns had this really light and fluffy texture and were really tasty (much more so than buns in Toronto). There's a real difference between freshly baked buns and buns that have been sitting there for a while. Cheung Sing was constantly refilling their take-out counter with new buns.

Pineapple bun with sesame seeds on top
Really yummy! Perfect top crispy layer and soft doughy bread inside (and who can forget the milk tea?) Great breakfast! And super cheap and quick. I'd take this over McDonalds in Hong Kong any day.

Overall: Great place for a quick service meal, cheap prices and good food! There's definitely a reason why it's so popular - you can't really go wrong with anything you order.
