The best Coffee Milk Tea in town?

You may have heard of Hong Kong signature drink, Hong Kong style Milk Tea. How about Hong Kong style Coffee Milk Tea, called Yuanyang (鴛鴦) in Cantonese, literally meaning love birds, signifying a love affair between coffee and milk tea. It is a drink that combines coffee and milk tea, served hot and cold typically in Hong Kong style tea restaurants.

Local food industry holds competition in making the best Hong Kong style Milk Tea annually. This year, a competition in making the best Hong Kong style Coffee Milk Tea was first held. A master from a restaurant called Shui Wah Restaurant (瑞華餐廳)has won the competition by preparing the best Coffee Milk Tea in town, with 20% of coffee and 80% of milk tea. The normal formula is half half each.

Upon receiving the award, he commented that Hong Kong style Coffee Milk Tea is best to be had together with Hong Kong style toast. You may want to give it a try. For me, Hong Kong style toast, deep fried bread, is way too oily. And I love Milk Tea more than Coffee Milk Tea. My preference would be Hong Kong style Milk Tea with pineapple bun (菠蘿飽).
