Hong Kong Pantyhose Milk Tea competition winners - anyone tried the 3 places?

For those who can read Chinese

There was recently a Pantyhose Milk Tea competition in Hong Kong that didn't get covered by the English press.

Anyone had a chance to try these yet and how do they compare with Lan Fong Yuen in Central and Golden Phoenix/Gum Fung in Wanchai?

The winner

大發餐廳 (Tai Fat

2nd runner up:

太興燒味餐廳 Tai Hing Roast Restaurant (iced version 冰鎮奶茶, note that they keep the ice outside, not in the drink, I believe this is purely a Tai Hing invention

3rd place
鄭記士多 (Cheng Kee See Dor


深井(Shum Tseng, yes the roast goose place). Charging upwards of HK$68 a cup! I wonder if they brew it with roast goose liver juice.

  1. Tai Hing's milk tea is a prime example of HK-style milk tea. Strong tea flavours (a little acidic) yet smooth, thick and milky. Colour verges on terracotta. The ice on the outside is a great idea because it prevents the tea from being watered down. Not sure it's a TH invention, but it's a good idea nonetheless.

    I had no idea Cheng Kee was in Sham Tseng - and I live around there! Will try it out and report back. Never tried Tai Fat either, but it's a bit far out to go for a milk tea...

      Local writer Eric Wong in his article describes his experience with milk tea at Gum Fung in Wanchai, where a staff member there tells him that 冰鎮奶茶is a 太興 invention.

      Log in to read it (it's in Chinese), signing up is free. It's a fantastic writeup too

      I'll make Tai Hing a must-visit whenever I visit HK again!

        Was the location of Tai Hing Restaurant that's actually IN Tai Hing the first one?

          Hi Luther, not sure what you mean by "in Tai Hing"? Not aware that there's a geographical location called Tai Hing...

          K K, thanks for the knowledge. I see you're a big fan of Eric Wong! I've seen you post links to his site a couple of times :) Too bad I haven't much patience for reading Chinese (my formal Chinese is worse than a primary sch kid haha)

            My understanding (from the internet) is that it's an area in Tuen Mun.


            1. re: Luther

              Interesting - but I don't think the restaurant is from that area because the two "Tai"s are actually different words in Chinese.

              Just found that Tai Hing (the restaurant) actually has a website. They're from Saiwanho :

                ahhh right. A better transliteration would be "Dai Hing" for the geographic location.
