My first experience was at THE Hong Kong Cafe at East Coast Road, which was a little sad, nothing wrong with the service or place. However, after a long day of work, eating a lonely dinner of Maggie Noodles served with a piece of luncheon meat and blanched frozen vegetable cocktail (The chopped carrots, peas and corn in a bag type) is a little depressing. My Pavlovian reaction to the mention of HK cafes is "Oh, The Maggie Noodle Place."
Things now are a little better of course, you can choose more than just Variations on Maggie Noodles.
Lunch at Xin Wang.
