I used to stay very near Minden Avenue several years ago. I never went there because there was nothing there except for a laundry shop and some bars. It wasn’t until I went to Butao Ramen that I discovered the whole street was lined with several restaurants.
Minden Avenue is parallel to Mody Road. K11 mall actually intersects Minden Row where Fat Angelo’s and Istanbul Kebab are located.
This is the end of Minden Avenue where I tried 3 restaurants. There were still a couple of Japanese restaurants and a cafe that I have to try.
The interesting food items drew us in.
Chinese restaurants usually serve regular salted peanuts. These honey glazed walnuts were a delicious treat.

We usually order chrysanthemum tea which is very light. Rock sugar can be added to the tea.

Overall the food was good but nothing spectacular.
The barbecue buns were your typical asado siopao except for the sautéed onions at the bottom of the pot.
steamed barbecue pork buns with sauteed onions HK$28
fried rice noodle roll with XO paste HK$38
This wasn’t what I expected. Where’s the rest of the dried meat? There was only a piece of sausage (lap cheong) and tiny pieces of chicken. Quite disappointing.
steamed seasoned dried meat rice & chicken HK$68
The prawn cakes tasted similar to Thai prawn cakes. I didn’t taste the salted egg yolks.
pan fried prawn cakes with scallops and salted egg yolks HK$198
The super tender beef cubes in wasabi sauce was our favorite dish. The wasabi added a unique flavor and heat to the sauce which I suspect was a mayonnaise base.
