Can anyone recommend a good Hong-Kong style cafe in the chinatown area? One with baked pork chops on rice, cold milk tea, etc...
this won't be entirely helpful, which i apologize for, but i think your search will yield limited if not non existent results. the majority of the hk population pitched their tents in richmond hill/markham/thornhill and perhaps scarborough during the years before the hand over. i watched richmond hill change from catholic italian (well i did go to a catholic school) with a handful of diversity... to majority chinese in a matter of 5 years if no even less.
downtown chinatown rarely contains hk population unless they're just visiting from the north and i haven't seen an hk cafe ever. some places do have hk items hidden in their menu... i did however enjoy many interesting meals of hk style food while in richmond hill and have an unwarrented nostalgia for them
Oh my, is that place still around? I used to frequent that place so often about 13 years ago, making the trip all the way from uptown. They had really good food back then. I remember the set meals, starting with soup, fish with creamed sauce on rice, then beef or pork chop on rice with veggies and a drink. I don't know what it's like now, but for HK style food, I usually eat at places in Scarboroug, Richmond Hill or Markham now.
