The Hong Kong-Singapore travel bubble may have burst for now, which means we’ll have to enjoy HK food locally till borders reopen. Meanwhile, there’s a new mod cha chaan teng in town to check out. Called Pi Food, it soft launched on June 28 this year at the newly-revamped 9 Penang Road (formerly known as Park Mall).
The eatery serves an extensive menu with Canto-Western grub, such as congee, noodles and baked rice, like what one might find at a traditional Hong Kong teahouse. But the establishment is more full-fledged restaurant than charmingly chaotic teahouse, as you can’t find the usual cha chaan teng snacks like polo buns, egg tarts and other pastries here (though they do offer French toast and sandwiches).
