Chau Kee is a small independent dim sum place who made it onto a few magazines in Hong Kong.   They are the first to make molten french toast and I am so late to come try this the first time.

Verdict

Golden Lava French Toast – 9/10
Beef Balls with Dried Orange Peels – 5/10
Sui Mai with Quail Egg – 7/10
Bottle of Milk Tea – 8/10

  The Golden Lava French Toast was fantastic! Crispy and golden yellow on the outside, while the inside was molten with creamy custard that flows straight out when i cut into it. Delicious.  If you like french toast, and like custards or molten custard buns, this is for you.  Despite this being outstanding, the other dim sums were disappointing. The other dim sums are not really worth coming back to or mentioning. However their milk tea was good, slightly bitter, but I love ice milk tea without ice melting it and become watery.

Would I go back again? Yes
