Hong Kong Breakfast Macaroni Soup

Thinking about what to make for breakfast can be tough. There are so many breakfast options you can make and the little humans can be so picky! But in my house, the clear breakfast favorite has always been easy macaroni soup. It’s comforting, quick, and easy, and the perfect soupy dish for a cold day.

午餐肉通粉

Hong Kong macaroni soup “午餐肉通粉” is a cha chaan teng “茶餐廳” staple, best served with a slice of thick bread toast with egg, and cup of strong milk tea. My favorite cha chaan teng in Hong Kong is without a doubt, the Australia Dairy Company in Hong kong. Their macaroni soup is always worth the long wait and um, rough service. They have a fast-paced, no frills approach to running their restaurant which is so refreshing in the Yelp era. Getting a seat there, you’re likely to end up sitting next to strangers and getting yelled at if you take too long too consider your order. But they always deliver. Just good food and fast. No muss, no fuss.

Breakfast Macaroni Soup

But back to the macaroni soup. Their macaroni soup has the softest macaroni and the creamiest soup. By how much I talk about it, I am clearly obsessed with their food and thus why I’ve made it my mission to replicate their dishes. After numerous trial runs in the kitchen, I’ve arrived at this recipe. This recipe is closest thing to the macaroni soup you’d have at Australia Dairy Company. The soup is creamy, the macaroni is cooked to perfection, and the toppings can be interchangeable! You can add the classic ham, spam, or turkey with some vegetables to make this easy breakfast meal. Top it off with a crispy pan fried egg on top and you have yourself a nice protein packed meal to start off your day. I hope you enjoy this recipe, bon appetit!
