Kam Hing Coffee Shop is a landmark of Chinatown. It opened its doors about 35 years ago and is famous for its light, fluffy, and moist sponge cake. Chinese-American owner Liz Yee and her family opened Kam Hing Coffee Shop as a way to pass down memories from generation to generation. Besides the original sponge cake version, you can find a multitude of flavors such as pandan, matcha, ube, black sesame, and coconut. I like to stop by in the mornings and start my day with at least two sponge cakes - I usually go with original and matcha but depending on the day I’ll mix and match. And of course, I have to get a milk tea as well.
