Mambo Cafe - Aberdeen Centre


Everytime I'm at Aberdeen, there's always a huge lineup at Mambo Cafe! Mambo sells HK style cafe food, and has your basic HK breakfast staples like Spam and Macaroni, french toast, sandwiches and also a variety of rice/noodle dishes. 

Baked Pork Chop on Rice

4/5 stars
Apparently the thing to get here is their baked pork chop on rice! Pork chops alone are enough to entice me, so imagine my excitement when I discovered there was cheese on it too haha! The portions at Mambo are very generous, so I ordered my meal in a to-go container, as I knew I wouldn't be able to finish it.

The meal comes with 3 large pieces of pork chop and rice, drowned in a sweet tomato sauce, with cheese on top. There were also bits of corn and peas on top of the cheese.

The exterior of the pork chop was very crispy. The interior was decently moist. However the main attraction was definitely the sauce. The tomato sauce had the sourness of real tomato but was very sweet. I wish they would have included more cheese, but that just comes down to personal preference.

Lemon Ice Tea
3/5 stars
Lemon ice teas are the norm at every asian eatery, and Mambo's interpretation tasted a bit diluted. However, it wasn't too sweet, which was a plus.


Pros:
-Cheap
-Large portions
-Filling

Cons:
-Long wait time (I waited more than 20 mins for my food. Not very efficient for a food court.)

Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
Will I be back? Yes!
