It all started with egg tarts. 

From a humble cha chaan teng (which literally translates to “tea restaurant”) in Hong Kong, Honolulu Café has gone global with its dining concept that was founded in 1940. Several decades later, it continues to serve its signature egg tart, along with its own blend of coffee, ‘stocking’ milk tea, other modern pastries, fried noodles, and more.

It’s their signature egg tart that placed this establishment in the culinary map. Foodies from all over the world would flock to any of its outposts just to get a taste of this delicate pastry that is made with 192 layers of flaky crust, not to mention its rich and creamy custard filling. These famous tarts are baked fresh every day and are available in all branches. It pairs well with their special blend of coffee or classic milk tea.

Apart from the baked treats, Honolulu Café has a decent list of savory offerings, too. The latest addition in the menu is their roasts, which is only available in Robinsons Place Manila. Enjoy the distinct flavors of its barbecued meat selection: Soy Chicken, Roasted Pork Belly, and Roasted BBQ Pork—all of which are good on its own or with rice for a complete meal. Other must-tries are the curry in casserole, baked rice, steamed rice in casserole, and noodle dishes.

With Honolulu Café’s presence in Manila, you can treat your taste buds to a gastronomic journey without traveling thousands of miles for it.
