Where to go for breakfast in the Kungdom? Here’s our list of top Sai Kung breakfasts.
For late risers, Steamers is the place to go. Although the menu says breakfast is served from 9am till 12pm, most breakfast items can still be ordered after 12pm.

For a healthier start to the day, the salmon spinach brekkie ($128) is also a popular choice. Plus, if you’re longing for a classic roast, pop into Steamers on Sunday, where you can choose from beef, chicken or lamb roast, which comes with broccoli, carrots, peas, french beans, roast potatoes, pudding and gravy ($168). Some breakfast items come with toast and tea or coffee. Upgrade to a latte or cappuccino for $5.
