Kam Wah Cafe: Pineapple Bun with Butter 金華冰廳：菠蘿油
Pineapple bun with butter (“boluoyou”)
Kam Wah Cafe is one of those establishments where you already know what you’re going to order because you’ve probably been there a million times. Well, I have. Kam Wah Cafe, of all cha chaan tengs and basically all restaurants in Hong Kong, is the number one must visit for me. But if it’s your first time, it can be stressful because the menu is all in Chinese so if you can’t read Chinese, ask for an English menu, but I’ll tell you what to order anyway: the pineapple bun with butter. It’s a Pineapple bun with a fat stick of butter inside. Don’t think about the calories and just endulge. I also like to get HK milk tea, unsweetened to counter the pineapple bun. The egg tarts here are good too.
