Lan Fong Yuen 蘭芳園 located between Central and Mid Level on Gage Street erected a rickety cafe since the 1950s. Unbeknownst, this Cha Chaan Teng supposedly birthed the silk stocking milk tea 奶茶. We’ve read all about it, on TripAdvisor, The Lonely Planet, blogs – majority all seem to suggest that this is the “best Hong Kong milk tea”, the grand-daddy of them all. Despite the ridiculous long line up in the sweltering heat, we got a tiny Dixie cup for $18 HKD. It was loaded with ice and literally took us two sips to finish. Sip Sip DONE. The milk tea was rich (I suppose if undiluted). It is sort of hard to judge with such a small sample size. But, let’s be honest, Lan Fong Yuen is your typical over-hyped tourist trap. If you are hungry, behind the milk tea stand is their cafe serving food.
