Australia Dairy Company (澳洲牛奶公司) is probably one of those eateries that people have a love-hate relationship with: service is practically non-existent, but apparently the food is to die for (though I think it is slightly over-rated). Ok, I won't go as far as to say their variation of egg custard pudding / steamed milk pudding and scrambled eggs on toast are out of this world that I would die for (sorry my life is too precious 😂😂), but they are pretty delicious. It is worth the visit if there isn't much of a queue and if you are adventurous enough (especially if you are alone, or do not speak the language - Cantonese / read Chinese) as the experience can be a tad intimidating.

It would be good to note that the Australian Dairy Company is not a place to linger tor to have any chit chat sessions (if you are with friends); there's practically no service as niceties are abolished the moment you enter. It is a fast in and out establishment, you go in, are seated make your order, eat, pay and get out. Take any longer than you should and be prepared for the possibility and a awkwardness of being chased out by the staff (so I read). 😅

When we arrived, it was almost 9pm but it was still bustling with diners. I was really thankful that we were in a group of 5, consisting of a local and other who could speak Cantonese, because from the moment we enter it was a flurry of activity, almost chaotic, with staff busy taking orders, preparing and serving food etc... 

From the moment we sat down, the menus were thrown on the table and the waiter looked (quite disgruntled) as he expected us to read the menu before hand and make the order instantly. Thank goodness we already knew what we wanted. We ordered 2 scrambled egg toasts, 2 steamed milk puddings (one cold, the other hot), and 2 steam milk puddings (one cold, the other hot). C was feeling peckish and wanted to order more, but we were already full and wanted to try out the food. In that spit second where she was deliberating whether the food ordered was enough or should she order more, the waiter was practically almost rolling his eyes with in impatience. Honestly, it was pretty intimidating, so I was glad for the company (not for the faint-heated or timid people).

The table was small and could fit around 4 people comfortably so 5 people would be a tighter but still doable. However, the staff managed to squeeze in 2 other diners at our table. We were almost elbow to elbow as we ate.

Soon, our orders were haphazardly thrown onto the table and left there for us to re-arrange among ourselves. It was certainly quite an experience, and it did help that the food was quite delicious. The savory, fluffy scrambled eggs were placed atop a thick slice of toast that was airy and nicely toasted; a delicious and perfect combination. The puddings were not too sweet and quite flavorful.

Don't belittle this simple looking toast. It tastes heavenly (more so for breakfast or when starving).

Conclusion? You should visit this place if you are up for a unique local experience, rude service and good food at an affordable price; regarding it as a part of a new cultural experience (as long as there is not much of a queue). Just go with a thick skin, make your order and eat, pay and leave. It will certainly be an experience to behold to dine in.
