We visited another CCT this time in Yau Ma Tei. We went last year and they had a chocolate and condensed milk French toast which we wanted to try again. Except we were disappointed to find that they no longer made it! So instead we had the normal Chinese style French toast which is a peanut butter sandwich in the French toast batter drizzled with syrup. We also had a ham and egg sandwich; nothing special but there’s something about the combination of all 3 of these elements that makes it seem so luxurious; I couldn’t recreate it in the UK.
Yau Ma Tei is known for its cooking shops that sell a huge range of kitchen goods incredibly cheaply. I posted these pictures on Twitter and all the food bloggers erupted in jealousy! The huge selection of individual tins ranged from $2 to $10 and even if you buy a set of 12 of them, it still works out so cheaply.
Street food is one of the highlights of my trip here; cheap eats on the street are incredibly popular and this fish ball, siu mai (pork and shrimp dumpling), egg roll and waffle shop sold 13 of the dumplings for $10. If that isn’t affordable eating, I don’t know what is!
