Hong Kong Cafe Fare

The Hong Kong Cafe or Cha Chaan Teng (you just can find about anything in Wikipedia) style of cooking was/is quite popular here. Eateries serving anything related to Hong Kong, sprouted like post precipitation fungi not too long ago. Left standing are the hardier and better financed groups, notably Hong Kong Cafe, Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe and Central Hong Kong Cafe.

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.
