I posted about this on another list (Meet me for Breakfast) but it deserves its own place here too! Great eggs on toast. Super local =) owned and run by the same family as Australian Milk Company (I think his brother runs that one)

Considered one of the best egg tarts in Hong Kong (and certainly one of my favourites), air stewardesses used to buy egg tarts from here before they boarded flights traveling all over the world, to take these delicious morsels to friends and family residing elsewhere. The egg tarts are still delicious, but the new airport was built more than half an hour away by car, and it has become too inconvenient for the habit to survive. Still, this modest little hole in the wall shop (that literally has no space inside for you to stand and browse) serves these delicious morsels hot off the tray quite a number of times a day. There’s still a queue sometimes, and you’ll be able to choose from 3 types of egg tarts. The cookie crust egg tart, the flaky egg tart, or the Portugese. I love them all, but my favourite is the flaky egg tart! Butter butter butter 😍
136 Nga Tsin Wai Road, Kowloon City, Hong Kong
After a bit of rain in the morning, I love walking around in different areas around the quainter parts of the city. I find town too commercialised, but there are such nice little spots cropping up all over, as the “sea turtles” (people who study abroad and bring ideas back) make their way home. The slower relaxed ambience of retirees and quiet helps me take a deep breath and relax. That sense of peace that washes over me is intoxicating and I need more days like that. Happiness. Like this cat.
