Scrambled eggs are deemed to be a universal fool-proof dish but the Hong Kong-style version is the next-level, which takes so much patience, time and skills to create the golden deliciousness. There are only a handful of local eateries that really can master the art and one of which goes to Shun Hing Restaurant for their arguably the best scrambled egg rice series.

On a narrow street of Tai Hang stands both the original Dai Pai Tong and its extended restaurant, where customers are usually hard-pressed to get a seat even on weekdays. Before getting widely famous for the food sensation, it was started off as a street vendor selling cart noodles and local street eats, but this old model was struggling to survive amid rapid changes. It thereby experienced a drastic change in terms of the menu and recipes, after the eatery was passed on to the owner’s daughter Fanny, who believed adapting to change was the key to sustain the family business. She was proved right.

They may not offer the best seating but it does not stop the hungry folks from tucking into the famous Scrambled Egg and Char Siu Rice (滑蛋叉燒飯). The golden patty and the crimson red meat make a superb color combo, not to mention the drizzle of the thick-dark homemade soy sauce that comes with it. Get ready to get your taste buds triggered from the soft-jiggly scrambled eggs, thin slices of the sweet-savory char siu, and the signature soy sauce that enhances all the flavors. Only priced at $55 including a side drink, it is truly a heaven on a plate.
