My Favourite HK Café - Hong Kong Café
Whatever the case, I'm glad that the Cha Chan Teng concept was introduced to Singapore. In recent years, Singaporeans have seen the establishment of many Hong Kong-style cafés all over the island. I've tried quite a few but my all-time favourite is still "C.Nai Hong Kong Café". The first outlet is located at East Coast Road, which is very close to my home and thus served as one of my favourite supper spots. [NB: C.Nai is a Cantonese slang for "housewife". It generally refers to the stereotypical HK housewife who ceased to pay attention to her appearances after marriage]
My favourite snack here is French Toast with Peanut Butter. I like the French Toast here because it is less oily than the other versions that I've had in some other Hong Kong Cafés. This is definitely a MUST-TRY!
My favourite drink here is the "Si Mud" Tea, which is essentially a Hong Kong version of "Teh C" in Singapore. The drink is made of black tea and evaporated milk. "Si Mud" is Cantonese for "Silk Stocking" but fret not, the tea is not made using real stockings but is usually made using a cloth brewing bag. This is also a MUST-TRY!
