Actor Benz Hui’s daughter’s hat trick of F&B joints: Newly-opened Juju serves HK treats starting from S$2.50 

JuJu is the third dining experience opened by Charmaine Hui on 5 March 2022.

Charmaine Hui, the 25-year-old daughter of celebrated HK actor Benz Hui, just launched her latest eatery— a cha chaan teng (Hong Kong-style cafe) called Juju at Wheelock Place

This being her third F&B venture, it seems Charmaine has a special knack for food joints. The first two were outlets for her cafe chain, Café Bakeaholic, which she opened to monetise her newly-found love for baking after the pandemic halted her grad school plans. 

Charmaine seized the opportunity when a lot next to Bakeaholic at Wheelock Place opened up. Juju embodies your typical cha chaan teng. The interior is adorned with mosaic tiles, metal grilles, and bench seats. For added ambiance and a more indulgent experience, the cafe features a lustrous bar with counter seating.

So what’s on the table at Juju? According to 8Days, Charmaine describes her new cafe as a fusion cha chaan teng, which serves Hong Kong’s main classics and popular goodies like specialty teas, craft beers and boxed snacks. The classic selection features the likes of Juju Wings ($S7.90), Egg Luncheon Meat Noodle ($S8.90), and Fried Chicken Thighs with Fries ($S8.90). 

The kitchen here does not favour major and elaborate cooking, so she’s kept the menu basic. Still, you’re in for a treat with the classic dishes.

If you’re a huge fan of HK toasts, you’d want to get in line here. Opt for Toast with Corned Beef Egg ($S 7.30) or French Toast ($S5.90). And if you’re stopping by just for a snack, go for curried Fishballs and Pig Skin ($S6.90). 

Now for the sweet-toothed (don’t think she forgot about you), the menu offers butter cookie-crusted Egg Tart (S$2.50), Milk Tart (S$2.50), Cocktail Bun (S$3.50), and Bolo Bao (S$3.80). Enjoyed with a specialty drink like the Juju Milk Tea (S$3.30 for hot, S$3.80 for iced), these housemade pastries make for ideal afternoon nibbles.

Juju is also proud of its selection of classic soda floats. Be sure to add one (or two, or all) of these to your order. The Yellow Cow (Schwepps cream soda, S$5.20), White Cow (7-Up, S$4.50) and Black Cow (Coke, S$4.50) all come with vanilla ice-cream.

I’m not sure about you, but I’m heading there this weekend!
