Peanut Milk Toast

Some of my favorite eateries in Hong Kong are the 茶餐廳 (literal translation is “tea restaurant”), where they offer a sort of fusion of Hong Kong and Western-style foods.

Wayyy back in the day, restaurants that served “Western” foods were considered super high end, and weren’t affordable for locals, but after …
