Yue Hing (裕興), Stanley Street, Central


Ahh... an actual sit down breakfast. It is a luxury of time for the majority in this part of the world where one sits and enjoys the first meal (oftenly mentioned as the most important as well!) of the day in leisure. Something that usually does not happen on company time during the working week. Much too often, it is often reserved as privilege for the majority during the weekends, holidays or during vacation. And even so, that's assuming that one has slept in often enough to want to give up the precious morning shut-eye to get up early.


This is Yue Hing (82 Stanley Street), just a few short paces from Wai Kee Congee Shop. And this is breakfast. Of hot milk tea and sandwiches uncommon; down in the bustle of Hong Kong Central.


The thing to order at Yue Hing in the morning, are their sandwiches. The choices that you get for those sandwiches are really just the option of the meats that you want. Luncheon meat (or spam), ham or corned beef. It's all pan fried with eggs and cabbage, slathered with some peanut butter and then placed between wholemeal bread. No fuss, no frills and no pretensions. Each order of those sandwiches comes with a choice of beverage which is usually, tea.
