When we travel we really do not stress out much in making an itinerary, especially now that we have a little one on tow. We just make sure that we enjoy, have fun and of course eat good food. Well, that’s one thing that we religiously do when travelling. We research for good eats. We use Instagram accounts, blogs and recommendations when searching for restaurants or hole-in-the-wall finds. In our recent travel, we tried out a highly recommended food stall in Hong Kong that was just near our hotel. Join us as we share about one of the best pan fried buns that we have ever had. In this edition of EATSplorations, get to know Cheung Hing Kee – Tsim Sha Tsui. Enjoy!
Cheung Hing Kee – Tsim Sha Tsui!
Cheung Hing Kee is a small stall located at the ground floor of a building in Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. It only has a kitchen and a counter top where customers may stand while eating or may have the option to take away their order.
We just had dinner and just a few meters from where we ate is Cheung Hing Kee’s stall. But we were not hesitant to stuff ourselves with more food. So we went for it right away! Cheung Hing Kee is all about pan-fried buns with different fillings.
Signature Buns + Black Truffle Buns (2pcs each) HKD 48 (approximately Php 350)
We tried out 2 different flavors. Of course we had to try the classic, which is their Signature Buns and one of their best-sellers, the Black Truffle Buns. And damn! It was love at first bite! The broth for both buns tasted fresh and had a flavorful pork taste. The black truffle bun though, was more aromatic that made it more inviting to eat.
We loved that the bun itself was not too thick, it was soft and easy to eat and it had a crisp and perfect golden brown bottom. The bun was filled with broth and it had a good amount of ground meat. Just a tip, do not pop one whole piece of bun in your mouth right away. Believe us, the inside is piping hot! We had to take a small bite from the top first to slurp out the soup and to let it the inside cool for a bit before we devoured everything.
