After our dinner at Astons Specialties, we proceeded across the road to have dessert at Hong Kong Tea House, which is part of Katong Village. The place was quite a size and fitted with a retro outlook, boasting pictures of famous HK stars and singers dating back to the 80s. Pop music from the 80s and early 90s reinforced that image. Clean white walls with leather couches gave it that comfy look. We didn't get to sit on the leather sofas though. There were just too many of us to fit in.
They serve food like your usual HK cafe and quite a variety of desserts as well. I had the Tapioca Pearls with Fresh Papaya, which I found way too sweet even for dessert. Service was ok, but it can be difficult to catch the wait staff's attention.
All in all, a nice place to sit back and relax or to enjoy a chit chat with friends. My dessert was $3.80, which I think was a teeny weeny bit expensive considering that it wasn't very big. They are open 24/7 by the way, so if you are hungry or looking for a place to relax and have a chat in the Katong area at anytime of the day or night, it is worth considering. Just don't expect any spectacular food or desserts.
