Foodies who visit Central 中環 in Hong Kong regularly would have heard of Wing Lok Yuen Restaurant 永樂園茶餐廳 famed for its cha chaan teng items – especially their delightful Hotdog Bun.

Popular for takeaways or breakfast snack, Joy Luck Teahouse has decided to introduce an offering of HK Twin Sausage Bun inspired by this very famous hot dog, available at all its 8 outlets and online delivery platform https://joyluckteahouse.oddle.me.

Joy Luck Teahouse currently has outlets at ION Orchard, Bugis Junction, Causeway Point, Parkway Parade (Food Republic), Chinatown, Sun Plaza, Bishan Junction 8, and Plaza Singapura.

Here are 10 recommended items & drinks from Joy Luck Teahouse:

HK Twin Sausage Bun ($3.20 Opening Special from 3 – 10 Nov 2021, U.P $3.80)
This HK Twin Sausage Bun 双肠热狗包 is inspired by a well-loved local offering from a popular restaurant at Central, Hong Kong. You can get a taste of it here without flying over to Hong Kong.

The newly introduced item comprises of two steamed chicken sausages (made locally, only chilled and not frozen), both housed within a lightly steamed bun.

To me, the real draw is the accompanying sweet mustard-like sauce that is specially made in-house using a secret recipe which includes butter, mustard, pickles, egg, vinegar and more.

Like your comfort breakfast food, the sauce reminded me of dijon which has a more mellow taste with slight vinegary kick which complemented well with the soft sausages.

Chicken Pie ($3.20)
The Gai Pie (鸡批) boasts of buttery crust, with fillings of chicken, diced carrots, peas, corn and potato in a creamy bechamel white sauce.

Hong Kong-style Wife Cake ($2.50)
Lou Po Beng (老婆饼) with a slightly-sweet chewy filling of premium mashed candied winter melon.

Crispy Condensed Milk Bun 奶油豬 ($2.80)
This uses a crusty type of French-style baguette, halved, and toasted until the outside achieves a certain crispiness.

The toasted bun is then buttered and drizzled with condensed milk, which makes it a simple, sweet treat to have. Good to pair with Hong Kong Milk Tea.

Chee Cheong Fun with Dried Scallop Hae Bee Hiam ($4.80)
For the Original HK Cheong Fun ($3.80), the smooth rice noodles sheet is served the traditional street-snack style – rolled up without fillings, and drizzled with signature soya sauce, sesame peanut sauce, and sweet sauce.

However, you can also choose to ‘upgrade’ with the addition of hae bee hiam (spicy shrimp paste) – specially developed by local actor Ah Ge Li Nanxing.

Egg Tarts
The Egg Tarts from Joy Luck Teahouse are from Hoover Cake Shop 豪華餅店 in Hong Kong with two choices – one with a multi-layered puff pastry crust, the other “cookie” base akin to sweet shortbread crust.

The crust base is made from carefully chosen Australian ingredients, a special blend of fine butter, and the best premium flour.

22 Carat French Gold Flakes Egg Tarts ($6 for one, $22.80 for box of 4)
For an added touch of luxury, the egg tarts are also available flecked with 22-carat edible French gold flakes, which lends a touch of sophistication.

Pineapple Buns from Kam Kee ($2.20 for Original, $2.70 for Kaya, $3 for Butter or Luncheon Meat)
This golden-yellow crusted bun follows Kam Kee’s 金記冰室 decades-old recipe, made using premium blend of flour for that sweet and crumbly finish.

Milk Tea from Kam Kee ($3.50 for Hot, $3.80 for Cold)
The Hong Kong-style Milk Tea is made from a blend of 3 different black superior quality teas from Sri Lanka.

Hong Kong Bubble Milk Tea (Pearl of the Orient) ($4.80 for cold)
Exclusive to Singapore will be this Hong Kong-style bubble tea – Joy Luck Teahouse’s milk tea complemented with chewy brown sugar tapioca balls.

Pearls of Joy Series ($4.80 with pearls, $3.80 without pearls)
There are three new iced bubble fizzy drinks in the “Pearls of Joy” series, each a fusion of Hong Kong and Singapore influences.

For the refreshing flavours that will cool yourself down this hot weather, go for the Lychee Fizz, Sour Plum Fizz or Honey Lemon Fizz.

Compared to the usual tapioca pearls, the series uses healthier pearls which is a combination of Seaweed Jelly Pearls and Lychee Popping Pearls.
