Breakfast in Hong Kong

By on September 4, 2015 in Hong Kong

On my first morning I had some trouble finding a place for breakfast, and my usual approaches (FourSquare and the ‘net) couldn’t and didn’t seem to be any help, and in fact FourSquare just seemed to give random answers. I later discovered that the problem was with my phone in that it was struggling to get a GPS location lock in Hong Kong due to all the high-rise buildings.

I finally found a little place in Spring Garden Lane, and I have no idea what it was called as I can’t read Chinese, and the place wasn’t even on FourSquare, however, as there seemed to be a constant stream of people coming along to buy from the place using the outside serving area, I thought it was worth a try.

Turned out to be a good call as it was an excellent little place. The food was really good (photo below), and even though the menu was mainly in Chinese I was able to order without much difficulty. Total cost of the for the meal, $55 HKD (£5 GBP; $7.50 USD).

One interesting thing I saw, that I have not seen below, was the use of tea by customers to wash their bowls, spoon, and chop sticks before eating. I wondered what the large bowl on my table was for!

Great little place, good food and a great find on Spring Garden Lane. Worth checking out.
