I woke up as early as 6 and hopped on the tram which took me to Wan Chai. Hong Kong is never a quiet place. The Hongkies are probably the most hardworking Chinese on earth. They grow up in a hustle, bustle, rush and roar city, being so used to rushing from one place to another. 24 hours seems to be too short for those who dash in and out for a living. Travelling by tram is truly an eye-opening experience as I got to see how people work hard in a harsh and competitve environment just to make ends meet.
Honolulu Cafe is located in Wan Chai. There are two signature items which sell like hotcakes starting from 6 in the morning till midnight. They are the inseparable pair – Coffee and Egg Tart. They are so good that even the Hongkies are willing to sacrifice their precious sleeping hours jut to come here to enjoy their breakfast. Speaking as a tourist, Honolulu coffee and egg tart are the type of food worth coming for over and over again irrespective of how many times you visit the country. Speaking as a faithful die-hard coffee and egg tart lover, this was already my third time enjoying the wonderful treats. (December 2009 & March 2011)
