Great modern cha chann teng food

Hong Kong chaa chan teng food either clicks with me or it doesn't, there is no in between because either I like or I don't like it.

In this case, I found the food enjoyable because the savory dishes don't taste sweet and would come back if the location wasn't so inconvenient.

*** Must try

Photos of the restaurant :

***Iced Pineapple:

I was surprised there was a drink that I could drink because at most cha chann tengs there are not much options for expats because it is mainly Hong Kong style milk tea and syrupy tasting drinks.
The iced pineapple was really nice because it was pineapple juice with icecubes made of frozen canned pineapples.
It was lovely and refreshing and not the usual syrupy sweet drinks you get.
Chicken wings in Swiss sauce:

Not my favourite but these were better than other places because other places just taste sweet.
Prawns on toast:

These were different to the ones on toast because it was minced prawns on baguette slices.

They were not bad but I found them difficult to eat because I find it hard dealing with meat on bones.
Spicy chicken wings:

These were similar to the chicken wings above but had a really spicy tone to it.
I preferred them because the spicy tone and the sweetness tasted good together.
***Flat noodles with beef:

Again, the beef was good because I loved the gravy which was not sweet and tasted like oyster sauce.
The fried noodles beneath it were not oily and had delicious pieces of egg.
Bread box:

I was surprised by this because the sauce was nice and savoury.
The bread box can feed a whole table because beneath the pork chop, there was fried rice as well.
***Curry bread box:

curry, potato, cheese, sauce rice and bread.
This was my favourite because I love curry with rice AND bread and it had BOTH.
It also had cheese too which was a bonus.
Instant noodles tossed in spring onion ginger oil with pork chop:

The noodles were tasty with the generous spring onion and ginger oil sauce.
You can choose from pork chops or chicken wings to go with the noodles.
Hainan style chicken:

Hong Kong style taste with chocolate sauce:

This was the usual toast dipped in egg and pan fried.
As you can see the toast was cut into big chunky pieces!
***Hong Kong style toast with kaya spread:

This was delicious and syrup was served separate which was good.
Frankly it does not need syrup because it has delicious sweet kaya spread in the middle and it is coated with fragrant desiccated coconut.
