A true taste of the city: classic beverages and typical “everyday” food

Founded in 1952, Lan Fong Yuen is now one of Hong Kong’s most historic cha chaan tengs (tea restaurants), with its main restaurant located on Gage Street in Central. It started out in the style of a dai pai dong – a type of open-air food stall now increasingly rare in Hong Kong. Even though its main operation is now inside a building, its classic green stall is still preserved today. Lan Fong Yuen is said to be the origin of classic local beverages yuan yang and stocking milk tea. Popular options on its food menu include pork chop bun, French toast and chicken noodles.
