THREE TREASURES OF HONG KONG
The Hong Kong Heritage registered by
Hong Kong Government at UNESCO
EGG TART 蛋撻
Pastry/Cookie skin 酥皮/牛油皮
Hong Kong Government published a list of intangible cultural heritage items that the city should protect with UNESCO, one of which is the egg tart, a very popular Traditional Chinese local dessert, an all-time favorite!
Hoover Cake Shop’s Master Chef-Owner with decades of experience under his belt, is acclaimed as Hong Kong’s Egg Tart (Dan Tart) King. He takes pride in his mouth-wateringly delicious fragrant tarts. His tarts are made using carefully chosen Australian ingredients, a special blend of fine butter and the best premium flour mixed with top quality eggs. The custard filling of these velvety baked treats is smooth, creamy, not too sweet, and rich-flavored with a golden glistening shine and a luscious piping hot fragrance.
The multiple layered puff pastry crust (酥皮), each made by hand, taste almost like a croissant but crispier, soft and loose with clear separated layers while the buttered cookie crust (牛油皮）is tender yet firm, and crumbles in your mouth with a perfect balance of buttery goodness.
The buttery pastry crust of an egg tart paired with its creamy egg custard center is a heavenly combo.
Every oven-fresh, piping-hot egg tart delivers a delicious fragrance that melts in your mouth and lingers on your fingertips, leaving you craving for more!
PINNEAPLE BUN 菠蘿包
Original/Butter/Kaya/ Luncheon meat
In June 2014, the Hong Kong government listed with UNESCO the Pineapple Bun, as an item included in the city’s “living cultural heritage”.
JLT follows the recipe of Kam Kee, a decades-old Hong Kong style café serving the most authentic Hong Kong Pineapple Buns (Bo Lo Bao) made with a premium blend of flour. Firm on the outside with a sweet, crumbly golden crust which looks like a pineapple that almost covers the entire surface for sufficient crunch in every bite. It is soft and fluffy on the inside; the bun is also stuffed with a generous slab of fragrant luncheon meat, kaya or premium butter in the middle (Bo Lo Yau) that melts within the soft warm bread making it the perfect balance of crumbliness and crunch.
It is one of the must-eats in Hong Kong, now you can have the exact perfect Bo Lo Bao in Singapore!
HONG KONG MILK TEA
Hong Kong-style Milk Tea is a tea drink made from a blend of 3 different black superior quality teas from Sri Lanka. It is Hong Kong’s most iconic beverage.

PEARL OF THE ORIENT
Using Kam Kee’s Hong Kong Milk Tea, JLT offers a Singapore exclusive – Pearl of the Orient. This is the only Hong Kong-style bubble milk tea in Singapore.
JLT uses only top quality ingredients, special blend of premium black tea leaves from Sri Lanka, mixed with full bodied Fresh quality milk from Europe, and the not-too-sweet brown sugar, topped by chewy tapioca balls known as “pearls”. The chewy texture pleasantly compliments the Hong Kong milk tea and gives the drink its unique trademark.
The flavour and texture of the tea are created by the chemical reactions between the tea, milk, brown sugar, and the bonds between the starch in the tapioca balls. Every beverage is handled with care and made to perfection.
The creamy texture and the flavourful mixture of an icy beverage filled with chewy tapioca balls makes it perfect for quenching your thirst on a hot day!
Hong Kong Milk Tea is not a trend, it’s a staple.

HOT LEMON GINGER COKE
Hot Coke with ginger and lemon started off as a popular cold remedy in Hong Kong, but now it is a popular anytime drink. The cold and fizzy are gone, but you’re left with sweet, spicy, a little tart, a smidge medicinal—all things that would feel restorative on a cold day or in a stream of warmth going down a sore throat.
It should be served hot, to get the double burning sensation of the heat and the ginger. This has an immediate effect on a sore throat whilst the fumes help to clear a blocked nose. The caffeine in the Coke reawakens the senses and the ginger’s spicy warmth is comforting, while the slightly bitter citrusy lemon balances the sweetness of the soda. There is a tingling burning sensation down one’s throat and the entire body is warmed up from the inside.
