I don’t go to Hong Kong-style cafes that often, but when I do it really brings me to that special place…it’s like Asian comfort food. Cheap, big portions, can be a touch greasy, but with satisfying Cantonese flavours you know and love. Silver Tower Cafe Restaurant is a great example of HK-cafe style food that does the job and does it well.
Going to dim sum as a big Chinese family is great. You get to order lots of different dishes and you never have to pay! Traditionally, the patriarch foots the bill, so who am I to go against tradition?
We haven’t eaten at Kalvin’s Szechuan for at least 8 years. Back then we didn’t know what dishes to order so we weren’t really thrilled. We recently came back with friends who are better at navigating the menu than we are, and left the restaurant happily stuffed!
