2.5 munchies: Sure, the sweet crust on top of the polo bun was indeed crunchy and baked to golden brown, but that was pretty much it. The bread dough underneath was a tad dense and thick for my liking. That large slab of butter served in between the halves – I couldn't bring myself to finish.

Oh, the hot milk tea was also by far the weakest I've had in Hong Kong. It lacked the tea fragrance and smooth consistency that I savour in the local-style beverage.

I'd advise you to (not) visit this cha chaan teng with a native speaker if you do not speak a word of Cantonese like me; thank God for the kind Singaporean who sat across the table and ordered the breakfast set for me. The macaroni soup had nothing to shout out about as well.
