Capital Café 華星冰室 – It’s ‘Australian Diary Co’ With Good Service

Capital Café 華星冰室 - It’s 'Australian Diary Co' With Good Service
by

[Hong Kong] I think I found a new favourite Cha Chaan Teng at Hong Kong. It is not all the time I can say I can sit down for a proper Hong Kong café meal with quality food, without the hustle bustle, plus good service! I didn’t even come expecting any of that. (Read: 5 Best Hong Kong Cafes)

Capital Café 華星冰室 at Wan Chai sells exactly the same meal sets with Australian Dairy Company. The breakfast set (HK$38, served from 7am – 12pm) comes with two scrambled or fried eggs, macaroni with ham, butter toast, and coffee or tea. Exactly the same.

I just had Australian Dairy Company at Jordan the day before, so I can remember the taste and the madness with squeezing in and table-sharing.

Capital Café’s scrambled eggs are excellent for its price – creamy as it is fried with Hokkaido milk, fluffy, every mouthful tasty while staying hot. Frying with a Chinese wok does make that difference. But but but… Australian Dairy Company‘s eggs have that extra saltiness and creaminess that reminds you of cream soup.

The macaroni and ham are definitely nothing to scream about, though way better than Yee Shun’s rendition.

The bombshell at Capital Café is Scrambled Egg Toast with Black Truffle (HK$38). Someone should already include this into the Top 10 must-eat food at Hong Kong for under HK$100 if you are only there for 5 days list.

This is simple sensational food, especially if you match it with iced milk tea (HK$20).

When I was trying to cut the toast up with a fork, the service staff came forward, with a smile, asking if I needed it. Shocked! Those who have been to a typical busy Hong Kong Cha Chaan Teng would know it doesn’t quite happen. Working men with smiley faces, and one was trying to make a baby next table laugh.

The dining environment is pleasant for its price, with big open spaces and comfortable booth seats. The owner is a former manager at Capital Records, therefore the many autographed Leslie Cheung’s albums already and many celebrities have sent their blessings by showing their support. You may spot one here.

  1. Hi! I’m from HK! As I’m going to visit SG this weekend, I found your blog. Right, I agree that this is the best cha chen teng and scrambled egg set in HK! Next time u could also try out the “Principal toast” 校長多士 (with minced black truffle on)! yum! And there’s another alternative to this kind of cha chen teng called hokkaido milk restaurant hong kong. You could try it out but I dun think it’s as nice.

    • Ah, thanks. Hope you enjoy SG! Yes, I heard about Hokkaido milk, and didn’t hear too many good things, so I passed on it. haha.
