Yummy Authentic HK-style Cafe Food @ Hong Kong's Food Culture, Plaza Low Yat, KL

First visited this restaurant many years ago when Deardo and I just starting seeing each other. He claimed that this Hong Kong cafe-style restaurant may have been opened since before the likes of Kim Gary joining the fray. 
One thing for sure, their interior looks almost the same as those we see in Hong Kong or Hong Kong drama series, only this one way spacious. Before their recent renovation, they used to have an extended kiosk outside where you can also buy Hong Kong street food like curry fish balls, deep fried sotong, deep fried innards, etc but after renovation the section has been removed.

Another thing for sure is that the variety of food here look more appetising, more authentic and like you know, proper food than those you can find in Kim Gary. At least you get real Char Siew, roast chicken, roast pork and roast duck here! 

We've visited the place quite often in recent months and here are what we have tried so far...
Deep Fried Squid, RM7.
Boiled Water Cress Soup, RM4.
The Deep Fried Squid is simply awesome! Crunchy batter covered with salt and pepper that makes the fresh squid super delicious. And at RM7 it is quite a steal! We also ordered their boiled Water Cress Soup with pork lung (woah, authentic HK-style soup ler), Chinese almond and honey dates. It was pretty yummy and flavourful too!
Black Pepper Beef Fried Nissin Noodle, RM12.50.
Fried Beef Hor Fun, Rm12.50.
Fried Cantonese Beef Hor Fun, RM12.50.
Duck Breast Rice, RM9.50.
As for mains, we have tried their Black Pepper Beef Fried Nissin Noodle, Fried Beef Hor Fun and Cantonese Fried Beef Hor Fun which we fell crazily in love with. All of them are very tasty, flavourful, very authentically Hong Kong and the beef OMFG so tender I can't even describe how much we love them! You just have to go give them a try! They give you choice to go with pork too but I bet beef will taste much better in this case.
Us hungry and happy diners! 
We also tried their duck breast rice which was the only dish we didn't find very nice so far. Other selections in the menu include rice and porridge dishes or you can order some ala carte dishes to go with rice for a wholesome Chinese meal too.

As you can see, their pricing is very affordable (total bill comes with 10% service charge) and normally we don't order any drinks because they serve you Chinese tea FOC just like what you'll get in a Hong Kong cafe in Hong Kong.

We are loving that place, the HK experience, the yummy yet economical food. Surely going back more often after this! :)

ShiRLeXia, you don't look like you are pregnant. Your face doesn't change at all. Are you expecting baby boy? You stay easy and happy. Merry Christmas to you and your loved one.
