Famed for their milk tea and condensed milk buns, Tsui Wah has risen to become a household name in Hong Kong.
Just like any other typical Singaporean, you can’t leave Hong Kong without getting a cup of “I love Tsui Wah” milk tea or pre packed bottles to bring home and indulge in the comfort of your own home.
The Cha Chaan Teng has confirmed it will open its first Southeast Asia outlet – with a seating capacity of over 140 from 1pm on June 15 at Clarke Quay.
Does this mean, “No need to fly to Hong Kong liao?”
Who knows? But one thing’s for sure, we’re excited to finally get Tsui Wah’s famous milk tea and treats without having to pay for a flight ticket.
Milk Tea For Days
The most famous Cha Chaan Teng in Hong Kong is undisputedly Tsui Wah Restaurant. Locals and tourists alike flock to Tsui Wah Restaurant for their signature milk tea and crispy bun with condensed milk.
With a network of over 60 outlets in Hong Kong, Macau and China, Tsui Wah manages to maintain its high standards across all their branches.
So for all you Tsui Wah fans, mark your calendars as your favourite Cha Chaan Teng makes a debut in Singapore.
If this is your first time hearing about Tsui Wah, don’t worry. Here are some of the signature items you should try.
Disclaimer: Some of the items may not be in their menu during their opening but more exciting updates are to come as the menu progressively expands in the upcoming months!
1. Crispy Bun with Sweet Condensed Milk
“Crispy Bun served with sweet condensed milk” is Tsui Wah’s reinvention of a classic Hong Kong snack.
Each freshly baked bun is richly coated with thick butter and condensed milk, giving it an irresistible taste that is crispy on the outside and soft inside.
2. Hainanese Chicken Rice
Juicy, boneless and tender, the dish is served with a bowl of flavoured rice made with chicken stock, basil and lemon grass.
Everyone raves about the Hainanese Chicken Rice at Tsui Wah, so if you’re looking for real good comfort food, their Chicken Rice should definitely be one of your choices.
3. Fish Balls & Fish Cakes with Flat Rice Noodles in Fish Soup
If you’re in need of a warm, hearty bowl of soup, this dish won’t disappoint.
Tsui Wah fish balls are made daily with handpicked yellow eels and over 10 types of fresh fish. Some have claimed that they’ve had better fish soups in Singapore, but if you’re looking for a quick, fuss free supper choice, then get this fish soup!
This is definitely the ultimate go-to after drinks at Clarke Quay!
4. Swiss Sauce Chicken Wings
Tsui Wah takes this Cantonese favourite to the next level by marinating the wings with aromatic sweet soy sauce. The wings absorb the sweet soy sauce fully and offer a real treat of juiciness and tenderness.
This dish is finger lickin’ good, that’s for sure.
5. King Prawns in XO Sauce with Tossed Noodles
This is one of Tsui Wah’s signature items as well!
Their king prawns are succulent and fresh! The noodles are slightly chewy and thin. It also comes with chilli on the side for that extra kick.
Honestly, this seems like a dish most won’t mind eating everyday!
6. HK Milk Tea
Saving the best for last, Tsui Wah combines premium Ceylon tea leaves and with many years of teas-training know-how to bring the perfect cup.
With a touch of Holland’s Black & White evaporated milk in a preheated teacup, this milk tea is perfection.
We’re extremely excited for Tsui Wah’s first outlet in Clarke Quay. As much as we’d all love a trip to Hong Kong for a break, I’m definitely happy that we can FINALLY get their famous dishes and milk tea right here in Singapore.
We definitely expect long queues on June 15, so go early to beat the crowd!
