Hong Kong’s most famous snacks
Pineapple bun is an iconic Hong Kong food item. The bun earns such name thanks to the chequered pattern on top that resembles a pineapple although there is no pineapple inside it. The crunchy and sugary top is made from cookie-type dough, while the pillowy and soft bottom is made from Chinese-style bread dough. Most places serve it with a piece of butter stuffed into the middle of the bun.
Egg tart, which probably originates from English custard cakes, is a popular offering at Hong Kong bakeries and teashops. It is a crumbly, buttery pastry-crust filled with creamy egg custard and is best served fresh out of the oven.
Wife cake is a ubiquitous snack which can be found in almost every bakery in Hong Kong. Traditionally, this is a bun with flaky skin and filled with sweet winter melon paste. The name ‘wife cake’ comes from the legend that when the winter-melon puffs made by a woman in Guangdong province were highly praised in public, her husband proudly declared that they were his wife’s cakes.
