Met a couple of pals at Memphis Blues for a late meeting (or rather meating). For years I've tried to be a vegetarian, so this place looked like a dreadful mistake. But the staff knew their stuff, and the food arrived promptly. Pressed by my pals to try the various meats, I started-in with deep reservations. Two minutes later, I was positioning the platter so my friends would eat something other than the pulled pork, which I hoped to save for myself. Lovely stuff. I really enjoyed it, and the delightful rib tips too!. Now I can't wait for our next meeting.

New Mitzie's, is a classic Hong-Kong style cafe restaurant - all clean, bright, and modern. I have enjoyed similar (rather Westernized) Chinese restaurants in cities all over the world, and Mitzie's is one of the best. I walk past a dozen of the more traditional Chinese restaurants to reach Mitzie's, and have never been let-down by any menu item. The 'Coconut Chicken and Burmese Noodle Soup' is a very mild curry soup made with coconut milk, full of Burmese noodles (the cook is from Burma) bearing a remarkable resemblance to spaghetti, topped with shredded chicken and a sliced hard-boiled egg. A delightful mix, and a very satisfying favourite for my daughter and I. Try 'Hong-Kong coffee' a strong brew, finished with evaporated milk. My friends inevitably become fans at their first taste.
