Forget the fancy F&B offerings in neighbouring Lee Tung Avenue and head to Kam Fung Café for a slice of old Hong Kong. This place is one of the few remaining old school cha chan tengs where they serve cold milk tea the traditional way – without ice. Around four minutes walk from Exit A3 on Spring Garden Lane, Kam Fun’s macaroni with ham and satay beef instant noodles are popular, but the dish that makes this place continually cramped is its warm pineapple bun served with a thick slab of cold butter. Be sure to order it if you visit.
