Get a taste of Hong Kong bakery classics in Adelaide

The shopfront


Nestled quietly within Seng Heng Shopping Centre is HK Cafe. Contrary to the name, it is more of a bakery. The wall is lined with an assortment of various sweet and savoury bread and pastries, sitting in their respective trays under the protection of plastic covers.



Trays and tongs are provided for you to pick and choose. I was definitely hovering for the longest time as I was hit with choice paralysis.



The goods all seem to be baked in house as I could see the tall trolley of trays beyond the counter.



And as if I hadn't had a hard enough time choosing what to get. There's even more hot food options and fresh cream cakes at the counter!



Obviously, I couldn't pass on the classic egg tart and a warm pineapple bun with a generous filling of cold butter. The topping isn't as crispy as I'd like, but the contrast between the soft, sweet bread and salted butter is still a winning combination.



The egg tarts are pretty good too. I especially like the texture of the crumbly pastry. Pity the filling wasn't quite as 'eggy' as I like it but if you don't mind a regular custard filling, I think you'll enjoy it.



I'm surprised to find they have curry bread. Unfortunately, this is too unctuous for my liking and the bread becomes more of a sponge for the oil than a respite from the heavy filling. Their other bread options are a bit of a hit and miss. I'd suggest getting their Hong Kong style milk tea to wash things down. It's a strong brew, just the way it should be.



There aren't many options for classic Hong Kong treats in Adelaide. But if you're in the area and have a sweet craving, it's worth stopping by to check things out.
