Why Lan Fong Yuen (Central) is special ?
A glass of milk tea accompanied by a pork chop burger or a deep-fried French toast is the best way to experience one of Hong Kong's oldest cha chaan tengs. The bare-bones diner is said to be the origin of Hong Kong's iconic "silk stocking" milk tea, which, as the name suggests, is supremely smooth and satisfying. If you're looking for something more filling, go for the fried noodles with chicken fillets. The original venue of Lan Fong Yuen is in Central but there are a few new locations across the city. The branch in Tsim Sha Tsui is located in the basement of the hostel headquarters Chung King Mansions.

Tips for you
Order the ice milk tea, the best!
Get here early in the morning! Get their boh loh bau, milk tea (hot/cold), instant noodle with roasted chicken, and HK-style french toast with kaya. Amazing food & very affordable! :)
For breakfast the satay beef ramen is a gem buried in the menu. Big chunky pieces of beef with tons of satay sauce.
Milk Tea Is The best!!!!!
Tucked away off Lyndhurst Terrace (or tell the cab driver "pai fah kai') is a ye old HK coffee shop service tea with milk ('lai cha'). A must try is the pork chop noodle and also the pork burger. Do be prepared for cramped conditions and the place is always crowded and you will need to share tables. But the food makes it all worth the hunt to get to the place and the ambience is authentic HK. One of the local eating experiences to have.
Either before or after visiting the mid-levels escalator, you can drop by here for lunch. They are famous for their milk tea and their dry noodles with pork chop. Excellent stuff! Their pork chop bun is good too. We ordered one on the side to share, just to be able to try as many things as possible. If you are there during the lunch crowd, be prepared to wait a bit. They will ask you how many people there are in your party, so there is no need to stand in an organised line. They will seat you according to the number of seats that become available, so don't be surprised if someone who came after you gets seated first. No one is better than the HK people at filling a tiny place to maximum capacity! The wait will be worth it though, as the food here is definitely worth waiting for. One of my must haves when in HK.
Chanced upon this tiny hole in the wall after a failed attempt at goose (they ran out at Yung kee) and liked it so much we were back the next day. Tea was amazing, French toast fried and delicious, and chicken chop noodles tossed in spring onion mix was good. I loved the food and the atmosphere. Yes, you get bumped as people squeeze by you. You must obey very order to sit at designated seats and even take specific routes to get there or the auntie waitress will glower at you. But it was worth every glare and elbow in the side. I would go back for tea, French toast and noodles. Oh and my friend adored the pork chop bun. She had to be physically restrained from ordering one the second day because we had so much food already. Go for a great authentic HK experience. Try to get someone who understands Cantonese to order for you or who at least can react quickly by pointing to pictures. Slow reactions just do not cut it here.
