When you’re in Hong Kong and you want a fast, cheap and filling meal go to your nearest branch of Cafe de Coral
. They’re the biggest chain of Chinese fast food. They have pretty good food too. They constantly have new dishes as well as old time favorites.
You order in the front where the menu and the cashier is and pay. Then you go to this counter and collect your food. They change their menu for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.
This is the best milk tea I’ve ever tasted. Nothing in Manila or Hong Kong has come close to it. The tea is strong and not drowned out by milk. It’s so strong that if I drink it in the afternoon I can’t sleep that night. But I’d drink this milk tea over Starbucks anytime. An order costs HK$8 but if you order if during afternoon tea it’s HK$6.

Eating in Cafe de Coral is perfect for rice lovers. Their meals usually come w/ a huge amount of rice. Not good for us since we eat more viands than rice. The rice in this pot is very good. It’s flavored with chicken and soy sauce. But still the small quantity of chicken and taro barely made a dent on the rice.
steamed rice w/ taro & chicken HK$32 w/ a drink
So I had to order this combo of chicken & bbq pork to eat with the taro rice
lung kong chicken & bbq pork HK$26
The soup, chicken and wanton in this dish is very good. It was another wipe out.
