I have possibly the biggest baby pram/stroller in Wan Chai. I have seen a few others of the same make and model but yet to see one that’s larger. Many people grunt and tut when they see me coming, some even grumble audibly. Well, the kid is comfortable in it, it’s got big wheels to glide over the nasty bumps and I’ve got tons of space for toys and groceries. So there.
A cha chaan teng in Wan Chai that will allow you to bring a stroller in? It’s pretty much unheard of. Parents with a stroller and kids in tow are relegated to eating only at Eric Kayser or Starbucks (or Passion at off peak hours). Where can one go for a Hong Kong style breakfast that will allow a mommy, baby and monster stroller in?
This is an important announcement to all mothers wanting a HK style breakfast. If you have your pram/ stroller with you, you can forget about eating in the famous Kam Fung or Capital Cafe. Famous they may be, but so popular that space they have none. They fill every square inch of space with a table or a stool. Aisles between tables are so narrow, you need to crab walk by them to squeeze into your seat… My pram barely made it through the front door of Capital Cafe and it got stuck in an aisle by the open tables. The staff yelled at me to shut the pram but I yelled back that it wouldn’t make a difference. That’s when they threw me out. Oh well.
Not at Hokkaido Dairy Farm. At off peak hours, this little cha chaan teng is quiet, service is fantastic (look out for a staff by the name of Mui Lee- super switched on), and the food serving is hearty.
The menu is the similar to other HK cha chaan tengs so at least you’ll get your fix. There’s a kids menu too. My little one wanted macaroni so that’s what she got.
If my stroller fits through the doors, yours will too.
Here’s how to find it. On Johnston road, between Hennessy Primary School and the iClub Wan Chai hotel. If you’re lost, look around for the 759 store and go towards the left as you look at the entrance.
