Mrs Tang Cafe: Tomato and Egg Pineapple Bun 華嫂冰室：招牌菠蘿包
Tomato and Egg Pineapple Bun
What’s better than a pineapple butter bun? A pineapple butter bun with tomato and egg. It’s the Hong Kong breakfast sandwich that for some reason has not gained popularity outside of HK (yet). Mrs Tang Cafe aka Waso Cafe 華嫂冰室 specializes in this treat, and its their specialty 招牌菠蘿包. With only two locations and one of them (the original) being far from the city center, you can expect there to always be a queue. Don’t forget to wash it down with milk tea too. I recommend the chilled bottled milk tea aka “champagne” milk tea 冰鎮奶茶 – still cold but no ice to dilute the flavor – as it’s one of the better HK milk teas I’ve had. Also, if you need something more filling, get a noodle soup. I got the tom yum rice noodle soup with chicken wings 雞翼肉眼筋煎蛋冬蔭公米粉. You can’t go wrong with anything here.
