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.
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.
