Where are all the Hong Kong style cafes/restaurants?

These are prevalent in Vancouver, BC where I am from, and I can't seem to find any here. THey must exist? Can anyone help? I am desperate for my quick fix of HK style foods.

  1. Last time I checked San Gabriel Valley's littered with 'em. Though their popularity seems to have waned since the late nineties.

    1. Alhambra. I'm not sure which are still open -- as elmo said, they've waned in popularity so there aren't so many. Regent Cafe I know has closed but it's never been anything but an HK-style cafe (is this still true)?

      If you're looking for a cha chaan teng, try Phoenix Food Boutique.

      1. They may be prevalent in Richmond, but I wouldn't say they are prevalent in Vancouver. Similarly they are prevalent in parts of the San Gabriel Valley: Monterey Park, Alhambra, San Gabriel, and east along the 60 Fwy.

            Fortune Bistro
            Tasty Choice
            DJ Cafe
            U2 Cafe
            Ritz Garden
            Tasty Garden
            Regent Cafe
            Sunday Bistro

            Lots more choices, but those should get you started ...
