Our love for eating has resulted in another famous cafe in Hong Kong to announce that they’ll be entering the Singapore market! (And to prove how enticing other markets see us, we just found out that Taiwanese bakery Wu Pao Chun will be setting up shop here too.) For now, let’s just concentrate on Tsui Wah, a Hong Kong cafe that is well known for its Cantonese0-style fare.
Granted it’s not damn good food, but Tsui Wah manages to fully capture the essence of a Hong Kong tea restaurant (茶餐厅), serving up sorts of food from simple breakfast fare to roasted meats and even Western food like hotdogs. Previously, the closest you could get to a true authentic Hong Style Cafe was Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe or Hong Kong F&B chains Honolulu Cafe and Tai Cheong Bakery, but now there’ll be an additional choice to choose from.
But if you asked us to name another dish other than Tsui Wah’s condensed milk buns, we’re stumped. So according to Tsui Wah‘s website, here’s the complete list of the top 10 dishes (or 9 dishes and 1 drink if you want to be more exact), including the famed crispy buns drenched in condensed milk.
Of course, the quintessential crispy buns. Sweet, sweet heaven.

A cup of milk tea that perfectly captures the essence of a Hong Kong style tea restaurant, in a super Instagrammable tea cup, no less.

Apparently the chicken wings are finger lickin’ good here too.

Not sure why you would be craving hot dogs in a Hong Kong tea restaurant, but Tsui Wah recommends their 11-inch juicy dogs for those days.

It would be interesting to try their version of Hainanese Chicken Rice.

Not too sure why they chose Malaysian Beef Brisket as one of their top 10 picks, but it should be really, really good.

An interesting choice of dish where you can taste the abalone but not eat it.

Of course the entire menu has a lot more local food than Malaysian curry like beef brisket, wanton noodles, fried fish skin… it’ll take us another hour to fully list everything they’ve got.
If you ask us, what we really want to try is the roasted goose. Apparently the roasted goose from Tsui Wah is so good that our editor actually dabaos roasted goose from Hong Kong and hand carries it onto the plane all the way back to Singapore. Hopefully the Singapore outlet will bring over their roasted goose so that we can all try it for ourselves and attest for its deliciousness. And maybe the Butter Po Lo Bao too while they’re taking recommendations.
Jumbo Group, who will be bringing Tsui Wah to Singapore, has not announced any details like what the menu will be or where the eatery will open, but more details will be released. And we’ll share them with you, so stay tuned.
