Hotdog and pineapple bun with a thick slice of butter are must-have of Kam Wah according to most of the review from openrice. Although I’m neither a big fan of hotdog, nor a big fan of pineapple bun with a thick slice of butter, I still came here to try it. Apart from ordering these two food items, I also ordered a glass of coconut milk with red beans.Hotdog - They made the hotdog with sausage, sliced tomato, lettuce and relish. They didn’t seem to put any mayonnaise in it. T...

On Bute St (more to Prince Edward side than Mong Kok), Kam Wa is a little Hong Kong cafe that does a bustling trade for both eat-in and take-away customers. Even late in the afternoon, a rainy afternoon I might add, there were still a fair amount of people enjoying afternoon snacks of fried chicken wings, flaky egg tarts and of course their famous pineapple bun sandwiched with a thick slice of butter (bo lo yau). Service was extremely quick as they expect you to know what...

'Bo Lo Yau' (菠蘿油)Contrary to what the name suggested, this popular sweet pastry widely available in Chinese bakeries contains no pineapple fruit at all. The sugary tasting crust on the top of the bun is supposedly made to resemble the epicarp of a pineapple, with a dough similar to that used to make sugar cookies, commonly consisting of sugar, eggs, flour and lard. The bread underneath is the same used in Chinese style Western bread, which is a softer and sweeter dough ...

lol I love the egg tarts here!!! The crust is not too thin and not too thick. The egg custard was "eggy" and not too sweet. Only $4 each!!! I also go bo lo bao which I thought was just ok. I notice the bread part was not a sweet type so it was kind of bland. Maybe it was meant to go with butter, but I don't like bo lo yau.

I was actually looking for another cha chaan teng in the same area as this one but found that it was no longer there. So... we went into this place for lunch instead. It was very busy in there. We ordered some fried rice and hot milk tea. Food tasted good but they were a bit stingy with the ingredients. My milk tea was great though. Oh I was a bit naughty and ordered a bo lo baau. I loved it. It was really really good. I can just go to this place for their bo lo baau again. It'...

Looking on OpenRice for a cha chan teng in MK, I came across this restaurant with dozens of pictures of pineapple buns with butter, or "bolo yau". I really like these buns, so I decided I'd go there for a bun and have lunch as well. If you've ever been to an overhyped restaurant in HK on a Sunday, you will have an idea of how packed this was. When we were given a table, I couldn't help from saying "are you kidding?". It was a table for 4 (and even then it was really sm...

In my last review - I thought that the Egg Tarts here were very good too, as well as their Pineapple Buns... Well another visit during Winter in November 2009 was quite disappointing. The chopstickMilk Tea wasn't too bad, it was very acceptable. OK. The chopstickPineapple Bun was fresh and warm, with butter, its always been pretty good so no complaints! smile The chopstickEgg Tarts on this occasion however smelled strongly of under-baked Soda Powder or something sim...

I was always filled with longing to try the Polo bun at Kum Wah Coffee Shop and my dream finally came true! On that particular morning when I got up early to prepare for my very first Disneyland tour, I hopped on the MTR at Yau Ma Tei Station to Mongkok Station and alighted at the exit the nearest to Bute Street. Took a leisure stroll down Sai Yeong Choi Street to reach Kum Wah coffee shop at Bute Street. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by the buttery...

it was five something-we went to this famous 冰廳 to escape from the suffocating heat outside. i ordered an iced milk tea and a 菠蘿包 to share with my parents, and asked the waiter to help us cut into quarters. the milk tea was good, not as milky as what i had at tsui wah but more natural. smile yum. as for the 菠蘿包-it was really good. for any ordinary 菠蘿包, the pastry crust on top is always so fragile that it will break when you give it a gentle touch, not to mention a big bite or a ...
