Whenever I go to Hong Kong I eat at Cafe de Coral at least once. The food is cheap, good and there is always new specials.
Since I was on a diet when I went to Hong Kong last August I didn’t think I would find anything to eat there. Thankfully they had a new promotion on New Zealand steaks.

I chose the New Zealand sirloin steak which came with the cream soup under puff pastry. The steak came with an option for gravy or tomato sauce. I chose the gravy not that I could eat it. I actually shared this with my mom. I just ate half the steak without the butter. The steak was quite good and tender. I just wish they had a salad or sautéed veggies which I can order on the side. Oh well at least I had the tomato for my veggie.

My dad chose the wintermelon soup with the dried seafood rice. I tried a little rice and it was soooooo good! It reminded me of our local Chinese favorite ‘kiampung’ but this was even more flavorful.

I’ve written about how Cafe de Coral served the best hot milk tea or ‘nai cha‘ I’ve ever had. Well, I’m happy to report that their coffee is just as spectacular. It’s strong, fragrant and a great deal at HK$10. Starbucks’ brewed coffee costs HK$27. If you buy the coffee in the afternoon it costs only HK$8 or HK$5 with your afternoon snack.

You really can’t go wrong with the food in Cafe de Coral specially if you have to eat rice. Most of their meals are served with a huge serving of rice. I’m just happy they had food without rice.
