Exploring Central (Hong Kong): Lan Fong Yuen and Tai Cheong Bakery

Somewhere in Central as we made our way to Lan Fong Yuen

After our goose appetizer at Yat Lok Restaurant, we planned to head over to Lan Fong Yuen to try their famed milk tea and pork chop bun. But alas, it was not meant to be, although we managed to get a seat, they were all sold out for the buns! We wanted to keep our stomach space at an optimum for trying out food that day, so we had to leave and adjourn to our next venue on the list for beef noodles - Kau Kee Restaurant

We got only as far as getting seated. The items we wanted to try were sold out! 😭😭😭

Since we were still early and had about 2 hours or so to kill before Kau Kee Restaurant opened, we explored the surrounding area and did some window shopping. It was quite an experience as Central is quite a uphill place: slopes aside, there were also plenty of stairs at almost every turn and did I mention really steep slopes? 😅😹

It was quite an uphill/downhill feat, but the displays were interesting.

One of the many flights of stairs. But this one "scared" me the most.

Don't be deceived by the gentle looking incline, it was very steep and quite a workout!

Tai Cheong Bakery is famed for its egg tarts, and since we happened to be in the area, we definitely gave it try! It was around 11 in the morning so there was not much of a crowd and soon enough we got our piping hot egg tarts.

The yummy egg tart! It was warm and fluffy, with the soft custard complimenting the crumbly pastry perfectly.

Address: G/F 35 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, Hong Kong
Opening Hours: Mon to Sat 0730-2100hrs, Sun and Public Holidays 0830-2100hrs

With our stomachs somewhat satiated with the egg tarts, we made our way to Kau Kee Restaurant and ended up having to wait around 30 minutes in the rain (a typhoon was passing by during that period and decided to make its presence known at an uncanny time).  It was definitely a once-in-life-time-experience.
