Cozy Local Cafe at the Bustling Neighbourhood
Do you enjoy having a cup of coffee or tea in a cozy cafe? This cute cafe Nan Kok is situated exactly on the Nam Kok Road in a bustling area. The cafe can get very busy during the day but if you could get a place outdoor, it is still a good place to chill with friends on a sunny day. If you like coffee, do try their Pandan Coffee. It is one of the best-selling drink on their menu.

Pineapple Bun Burger with Barbecue Char Siu Pork
Their Hong Kong-styled burger surprised us in a very good way. Can you imagine having a pineapple bun with char siu in a burger style? Now you don't need to imagine, just come over and try it at W..BURGER on Nam Kok Road! The combination of pineapple bun and char siu sauce is overwhelmingly matched with each other. The pork is very juicy and tender. It was undoubtedly the best savoury pineapple bun we've ever tried.

From a Historical Chinese Clinic to a Insta-worthy Cafe
Enjoy a Hong Kong egg waffle in a fancy Instagrammable cafe now! This beautifully rebranded clinic is now a cafe where you can get some Hong Kong street food in a beautiful presentation, such as egg waffle with fried chicken and cold cheung fun. To be honest, the cheung fun was quite disgusting; and we do believe that it was a bit overpriced to pay for an egg waffle in a bowl. Overall, it is still a great place for photos.
