Teakha. Shop B, 18 Tai Ping Shan Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. 上環太平山街18號B鋪.
And we're back in the brunch game!

At the weekend, I met up with Shelley who took me to one of her favourite cafés over in Sheung Wan - Teakha. Hidden away up in the super steep roads of the district, Teakha is an offbeat, 'lifestyle concept tea café' and zakka store that promotes a healthy, happy and sustainable lifestyle. It's teeny tiny but was bustling with happy customers enjoying their Saturday morning start to the weekend. Surprisingly they have plenty of seating available inside, outside and upstairs on an indoors terrace.

I ordered their pineapple bun brunch and a marsala hot chocolate to fully embrace the festive period. Pineapple buns are quite a popular Hong Kong dish that I adore eating on their own (even though I hate eating pineapples) so I was excited to try their brunch variation. It was kinda like an Eggs Benedict dish: the pineapple bun sliced in half, topped with a slice of ham, scrambled egg, tomatoes and pork floss. What a dream! I could probably eat that every single day...

The marsala hot chocolate was made from scratch, using organic ingredients, and it was SO good. Chai tea lattes are my favourite and this cocoa version was the perfect Hong Kong winter warmer.

If you're ever in Sheung Wan, I would absolutely recommend paying Teakha a visit. They also have an extensive tea (obviously) and cake menu, which would be ideal for a late afternoon wander!
