Australia Dairy Co @ Parkes Street, Jordan, Hong Kong


Before i flew off to Hong Kong, i had the preconception that Hongkies (if i may call them that) were people on a time bomb. Walking at incredible paces all over the street as if their lives (or jobs for that matter) depended on it.


Never did i think that Hongkies would eat at an outrageously fast pace too and introduced me to a whole new level of fast food.

Stepping inside Australia Dairy Co and you get that feeling that everyone cant wait to get their food, eat, pay and walk back out while the waiters cant wait to serve you food and ask you to buzz off.

Faced with a menu that is littered with mandarin and not knowing a word here and there, it was pressure when you wave your hand and the waiter is already standing next to you with pen and paper, muttering "what you want?"

Breakfast set x 2 please. (HKD 26 per set)

Scramble or Sunny side up? Scramble (duh? the most famous thing in your shop)

Coffee or Tea? Iced drinks + HKD 2

The day sets (HKD 28) gives you the extra option of Macaroni or Spaghetti, if not just macaroni, served chinese style, clear soup that taste "instant noodle like" with the addition of ham.

With a table so small that wont even give you space to put everything, your drink is served last after virtually gobbling everything on the plate.

The running backward and forward, the tense atmosphere created by the long queue and the rapid workers refuses to let you seat down in peace and slowly enjoy your meal. Not to mention how in the world i manage to take out my DSLR to snap 2 shots before hiding the beg out of sight.

Not a place to savour a piece of macaroni at a time or taste how in the world they make this godly scramble eggs that is velvetly smooth (did they put tons of butter? milk? msg!?)

When you leave this place, it feels as if a train just hit your stomach because you are all full without realising what you eaten.

Oh yes, the amazingly good scramble eggs. Did they put tons of butter? milk? msg!? Well how do you find out? You go into that mad swirling journey again.

Did i mention the silky milk tea, the "xin lai" translated to fresh milk but is actually similar to that "zhong lai" i had as well as the literal fresh milk i took away? Awesome.

yeah, hong kong has an interesting way of doing western breakfast, similar but different to the japanese.

yeah, their pace is incredible. so, the best time to visit is right after the peak hours.
