BT HK Cafe
Oh lookie here, I'm back at another HK Cafe!! I've been on a HK style curry kick lately. I've eaten 3 chinese curries in the past week! I just can't get enough of that creamy texture!! ^^
Mui Garden is still my favourite place for HK style curry (dat brisket tho!) BT Cafe surprised me, I wasn't expecting their curry to be that great, but it was actually really good!
We were handed their mini set menu, but after inquiring, the waitress said I could "supersize" my meal for a mere $2 more! (In actuality, their larger size is just their dinner portion.)
My mom got one of their meat combos, and she declared that she was content after seeing the portion size. When it comes to food, my mom values quantity over quality (even more so than my dad.)
Red Curry w/ Deep Fried Pork Chop $10.50 (Large Size +$2)
This was surprisingly great for a HK Cafe!! They have two types of curries to choose from: green or red! This tasted similar to a Thai red curry (but was considerably milder.) The bowl it came in was pretty deep, but there was lots of curry to go around! To my surprise, this came with not 1, but 2 pieces of pork chop, stacked on top of each other!! There was also some green and red peppers on the bottom!
Pan Fried Chicken, Pork Chop w/ Demi-Glaze Sauce $10.50
My mom had the 2 item meat combo!! This also comes with their daily soup and a drink of your choice. She remarked that the chicken was reasonably tender. The pork chop on the other hand, was a bit dry. The sauce had a heavy wine flavour, and she kept eating it with the rice :D
Unlike other HK Cafes, we didn't have a choice to what soup we wanted (russian borscht or cream.) They only had cream, so that's the one we got! My mom thought that this was overly cornstarchy, and rather unpleasant. She still finished it though!
HK Style Tea
The tea they serve in these cups is different from their regular tea, this is the tea they use to make their dong lai cha, so it's more potent/bitter!
To my delight ~ we got a very generous helping of rice!
