Hong Kong’s best-kept secrets: traditional sweet treats from ABC Cake House
For a nostalgia trip, head to a bakery that’s been going since 1951 and sells delicious egg tarts, nougat, pineapple buns and other baked goodies
If you’re nostalgic about childhood sweet treats, you can relive those memories at ABC Cake House. Founded in 1951 on Gage Street, Central, it sold a variety of baked goods, including egg tarts, cookies, pineapple buns, carrot cake, and their famously addictive nougat with walnuts.
The store had to move because of redevelopment in the area, and the founder’s granddaughter Yvonne Kai relocated it to Queen’s Road East in January 2015. It’s a cosy shop full of delicious-smelling items. The only problem you’ll have is deciding on what to eat.
