HONGKONGUIDE Appearance in Award-Winning TV Travel Program “Backpack Travels” by KBS South Korea!


Our HONGKONGUIDE co-founder Alpha was invited to appear in South Korean National TV Channel KBS’s award-winning program “Backpack Travels”. The episode not only showcases the latest attraction in Hong Kong, but also covers the culture and everyday life of Hong Kong people.


1. Breakfast at a local Cha Chaan Teng

Alpha introduced Hong Kong Cha Chaan Teng’s iconic breakfast - macaroni in cream chicken soup with ham and “coffee and tea” (鴛鴦)to the producer of the show, explaining the macaroni in soup may be the first fusion food invented in Hong Kong just like “Budae Jigae” (Army Base Stew) in South Korea.


This Cha Chaan Teng "Tak Yu" is a must-go because its milk tea is very famous among the locals and the area around, Star Street, is a very vibrant precinct.


Address:

德如茶餐廳

2, Kwong Ming St, Wan Chai
