The only thing i like is the milk tea. Everything else is average (considering the waiting time). Pork chop at TTLK (Tai Lei Loi Kei) is wayyyy better - both in terms of taste and crispiness.

When we visited over the weekend, there wasn’t any queue although it was pretty packed. And yes, thumbs up for their condensed milk bun and pork chop bun that were delicious. Especially the former that simply popped in its harmonious mix of sweet and savoury tastes.
We will totally return just for these buns and a cup of milk tea for an afternoon treat.

Yummy to the max the bun! The condensed milk was overflooding the bun (its dripping everywhere when I was eating 😏) Love the cup they served for the milk tea, so cuteeeee! #igdaily #igsg #sgig #latergram #hongkongfood #hkfood #milktea #toasts #crispybun #tsuiwahsg #clarkequay #sgfood #sgfoodie #cutecup #weekends #burpple #burpplesg #tsuiwahrestaurant翠華餐廳

If you’re unfamiliar with this drink, it’s an equal mix of the HK milk tea with coffee. This drink was one of the most fragrant drinks I’ve had, while not being overbearingly sweet. The strong tea flavor hits you first and you can tell it’s been brewed for an extended period of time but it slowly resolves at the end to the subtle bitterness of the coffee, which is quite potent as well. The richness of the milk also comes through in the drink and I would order it over and over again.

We ordered a couple of other dishes to try such as the

- king prawn XO sauce noodles ($11)
- wonton soup ($8)
- beef brisket soup with noodles ($10.50)
- chicken curry ($11)
- pork chop with fried rice ($13)

as well as the unmissable crispy bun with condensed milk ($4 for 2 half buns) accompanied with tea.

While all of the food were tasty, I personally liked the chicken curry best and of course the XO sauce for the noodles (really good!). The spring roll fish soup was okay, light but nothing special - although the fish spring roll tasted different from the ones outside. Condensed milk bun was really savory (take it while it's hot!). The milk tea was okay as well, we had to add our own sugar.

Overall, the service of Tsui Wah was really quick as we did not wait too long for our food to arrive. Though I wouldn't give it a 5 stars, you should still give it a try when you're in the area.

I hold fond memories of enjoying a supper at one of their Hong Kong outlets which open till late.

Unlike in Hong Kong, their signature HK Milk Tea comes already sweetened, and happily, not overly sweet. Definitely a must try. So is the Milk Butter Pig 奶油猪, which is basically two toasted buns that has butter slathered on one side, drizzled with condensed milk. The result is a crispy, aromatic sweetn toast.
💫
Then there’s the dry XO shrimp noodles that are also the signature. The place still sees queues, but if you don’t mind the outside, the alfresco by the river is a great option, sans queues. #tsuiwah #hongkongcafe #herpenandfork #sgblogger #sgfoodie #8dayseat #burpple #vscofood #openricesg #cafehoppingsg #instafood #instafood_sg #onthetable #stfoodtrending

Was craving for a rice dish so decided to give the pork chop fried rice a try. The dish was well presented however overall taste was a little blend. The ice milk tea was a bit too bitter for my likings as well. Quite disappointed after all the rave about this restaurant on social media. Was expecting the taste to be better.
