Lan Fong Yuen is one of the most famous Hong Kong cafe for traditional milk tea. Since 1952, it has been serving up breakfast (including its famous pork buns) to generations of Hong Kongers. Since we were staying at Chung King Mansion (New China Yan Yan Hostel), we decided to drop by next door to Woodhouse where Lan Fong Yuen is located.
What to eat at Lan Fong Yuen
Lan Fong Yuen opens from 8am to 8pm daily and as expected, there was a queue outside even as early as 815am! The good news is that the queue actually moves quite quickly and we were promptly seated.
For those who have luggages (we had ours as we just checked out that morning) and strollers, you are not allowed to bring them in as the space within the cafe is actually quite limited.
This morning we tried the bo luo you, milk tea, coffee as well as the pork bun…
The milk tea was rich and aromatic, living up to its expectations. The bo luo you with its fresh slice of butter was also quite delicious. The slight let-down was the pork bun. Though tender, the taste was quite normal and the portion was really small. Didnt quite live up to the hype.
Nonetheless, there are many other choices on the menu should you decide not to try the pork bun. Like a typical Hong Kong cafe, it offers a variety of choices as well.
