Chau Kee for deadly good Salted Egg French Toast in Hong Kong

I love French Toast, it's our favorite Saturday brunch food, no matter where we live... and I also love Salted Egg, is stating the obvious if you've been reading my blog.

Recently, there has been a Salted Egg craze that restaurants, cafes and pop-ups put this winner ingredient in every thing. So when we went to Hong Kong, I absolutely had to try the famous Salted Egg French Toast from Chau Kee.

We arrived just in time for our afternoon snack, because in Hong Kong you literally plan to eat in 5 places a day, so pacing is everything to maximize each culinary experience.
Chau Kee is a typical Hong Kong eatery, which serves you hot tea to drink
once you're seated, and hot tea to clean the utensils as well. Seriously. Hahaha.

Since we were snacking after a light lunch, we decided to order 2 orders of French Toast (because one of us wanted her own), and some dimsum to share. When we arrived, all the tables had Salted Egg French Toast so I won't blame someone for wanting her own. Hahaha.
We loved the Crab Roe and Truffle Siomai.
The moment of truth...
And Voila! Look at all that salted egg goodness. The French Toast is a bonus!
It's a good thing that we ordered Siomai and the giant truffle dumpling
(in soup).
Without it, it would be too rich (and nakakaumay)... but even with it,
there is no way one person can finish one. Hahaha.
The Siomai was better than the truffle dumpling, but this
was quite good too.
Cheers to new salted egg discoveries! 

Salted Egg French Toast is definitely much better than the Salted Egg Croissant. This is what they should be copying in restaurants around Asia. just saying.
