Honolulu HK Cafe is a straightforward cafe that serves coffee or tea with good food. Established in 1940, it pioneered the tea restaurant culture in HongKong, serving light refreshments and comfort food.
Now, Filipinos can have an authentic taste of Hong Kong cuisine without leaving metro.
I joined in a food tasting event recently and and got a bite of Honolulu HK Cafe's famous egg tarts (P 50 each).
The Egg Tart is rich and creamy, yet light on sweetness. The other delicacy I love from their baked items, is the Crusty BBQ Pork Bun (P 60). Its soft bun bread dough comes stuffed with a savory, salty-sweet pork filling. These treats are great for afternoon tea time, all for a good reason!
And these offerings seem to keep people coming back for more, making half of the main pull at the cafe. The other half are their comforting meals that are perfect for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
|Clockwise L-R: Deep Fried Prawn with Thousand Island (P 488), very, Rice Bowl, Curry Fish Balls and Deep Fried Honey Garlic Spareribs (P 288)|
The Curry Fish balls has a mild spiciness to it that makes it satisfying. Deep Fried Prawn with Thousand Island (Php 488) is delicious! Battered prawns are fried to perfection! These crowd-pleasing delicacy has a sweet drizzle over it. The meat remains soft and moist under its crispy cover.
Honolulu HK Cafe's Steamed Rice in Casserole is guaranteed to satisfy anyone's craving for rice bowls. The hefty serving of Steamed Rice with Chinese Sausage and Wind-Dried Meat in Casserole (P 198) can be shared by 2-3 individuals.
The Baked Rice with Minced Beef Bolognaise (P 298) is another must try at Honolulu HK Cafe. You can enjoy the same rich sauce in sphagetti form. While the basic bowl of sphagetti mixed in rich tomato sauce gets the job done, it is the premium cuts of porkchop that really seal the deal here.
Honolulu HK Cafe's HongKong Curry in Casserole (P 328) is a festive curry stew that brings in great flavor. I love the casserole's soft texture made from slow-cooked beef brisket. The fork-tender beef and diced potatoes covered in a thick curry sauce, makes a flavorful dish.
HongKong's long-established Honolulu HK Cafe serves wonderful dishes. You will find a good selection of bread and satisfying meals under one roof at Honolulu HK Cafe. Go visit them soon.
