Sugar and butter high


Let me ask you a few questions…

1) Do you like sugar?

2) Do you like lots of butter?

3) Do you love peanut butter?

4) Do you like condensed milk?

and finally

5) Do you like the sound of all the above combined?

If you answered  “Yes” to all of the above, then you should get yourself down to the nearest Tsui Wah (yes, you read right, Tsui Wah).

What, you may ask, is so sugary and buttery and soooo very bad for you in this Cha chan teng that gets me salivating at the mere thought of it? Hmmm, let me tell you, there are in fact 2 snacks, 1 of them I discovered a short while ago and made me gasp in amazement that I was, until then, unaware of its existence and therefore a previously very deprived person.

The picture on the left is of my all time favourite comfort snack, yummy anytime of the day- the condensed milk pork chop bun. A very very generous spread of sweet condensed milk on buttered lightly toasted pork chop bun (without the pork chop obviously).

I adore the buttery taste against the sweetness of the condensed milk. Pure decadence.

But, there is something else even MORE buttery, sweet, rich and sinful.

Behold, the peanut butter and condensed milk on toast!! Having only found this combination spread on a waffle at the corner snack stall in Times Square in Causeway Bay, I was ecstatic that Tsui Wah also did this delectable snack.

I admit that after sharing the condensed milk pork bun, this was a little bit of a sugar overkill but I still savoured every bite.

My friend W accidentally ordered 2 plates of peanut butter and condensed milk toast which I am ashamed to say we finished!

So, if you have a sweet tooth and crave a sweet ending to your lunch or dinner (or even breakfast!), then I think this is the ultimate snack for you!

Tsui Wah, G/F- 2/F, 15-19 Wellington Street, Central, HK. Tel: 2525 6338. Other branches in Central, Aberdeen, Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau Ma Tei.
