This is one of our neighbourhood places that we go to regularly - probably once every 2 weeks over last few years since they started at this location. The ambiance is just like a small Hong Kong style cafe in Hong Kong. Service is good (by the definition of a Chinese place).
Over the years, we have tried many things on the menu. In the end, we generally settle on Chicken vermicelli with ginger and gooseberry in the clay pot, clams with cilantro in the clay pot, or pork chop with tan tan noodle on most days.
I am not sure if this is a good enough of a place for me to travel a long distance to visit, but it is certainly more than good enough for a casual dinner on a week night when cooking is off the agenda.
A solid no frills HK style cafe.
We come here a couple of times a month because the food is solid and the service is courteous and friendly, especially for a HK style cafe. The restaurant is family run and we've come enough times that they know how we like our food.
They have a few items on the menu that are normally not found in other cafes. I really like coming during a cold and wet day when I am in the mood for comfort food. Highlights include:
Chicken and Vermicelli Hot Pot. It's a herbal soup filled with chinese herbs and wine. Great when I have a cold.
Clams with Pork and Rice in soup. Another favourite during a rainy day.
Tan Tan Noodles with Pork Chop. Rich broth with a bit of spiciness. Not sure how authentic this is, but I'm no expert, but I like it.
They have lots of other items not on the menu that are posted on the wall. It makes the restaurant look a little messy and cluttered and since I can't read Chinese, I need to ask my wife to translate. Prices are in line with other restaurants of this style.
Being a family run restaurant, they close on Mondays.
I go back to HK every summer, and if this place was in Hong Kong I would still go. It's super cheap, and has almost everything you can think of. I ate the baked portuguese chicken rice (macau style I think?) and even though they didn't bake the rice with the chicken and the sauce, it was tasty and wasn't boring at all.
The portions are just enough. 6.75 for a meal comes with a free drink, and it's quite a big drink. A coffee would be equivalent to a venti in starbucks. They serve many traditional honger drinks as well.
Get the clam and pork with rice. I go there with 5 people and 3 people will order that because it is just so good. And cheap. So very cheap.
