Cafe Key West at iSQUARE

We tried another restaurant at the newest mall in Tsim Sha Tsui called iSQUARE. Cafe Key West is very similar to Pokka Cafe and UCC Cafe. These are all restaurants of popular coffee brands from Japan.

Key West Cafe

They sell their own brand of coffee called Key Coffee.

Their menu was typical of a Japanese coffee shop. They had Western, Italian and Asian dishes prepared the Japanese way. Everything was very good. I think I like this place even more than Pokka and UCC.

The Hokkaido sausage was mildly spiced and the flavor was subtle but delicious. The casing of the sausage had a snap to its bite.

Whoever thought of putting a barely cooked, quivering poached egg on top of risotto is a genius. It added creaminess when mixed with the rice. This risotto reminded me of paella.

Why is it I only get to eat squid ink pasta in Japanese restaurants? The last time I ate this was at Capricciosa in Manila. The Japanese sure love squid and they make squid ink pasta very well.

Green tea ice cream

I never liked green tea flavored desserts but we decided to try this since it was on promotion and the waitress said it was special green tea soft serve ice cream from Hokkaido, Japan. Wow it was so good! The flavor was intense and tasted like real green tea. Other green tea ice cream or desserts I’ve tried tasted like artificial flavoring. This ice cream was so thick and creamy and wasn’t too sweet.

I would definitely go back to this restaurant. The price is affordable and the food is well cooked. Next time I’ll try their coffee concoctions.

  2. There is only one thing better than shopping in Hong Kong, and that’s eating. From small noodle joints to upscale French restaurant, you will locate all sorts of restaurant, eating hall and snack stall on earth in Hong Kong. Here I found small amount of Hong-Kong-styled snacks online (yummiexpress.freetzi.com). This is definitely a good choice before I have $ for another trip.
