Phoenix Restaurant

Thornhill location at 8190 Bayview Avenue

Phoenix Restaurant is an HK-style cafe that serves combos of breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner with daily soups or tea/coffee.  At this point of my food blogging, I’ve touched on several HK-style cafes that I really don’t have much else to say about this one specifically.  Phoenix Restaurant has opened up three locations in Thornhill and Markham and you can easily find it populated with lots of Asians at any time of the day.  It’s because their combos are so affordable and delicious.  Enjoy my pictures of the food that I’ve had from the Thornhill location! 🙂

One of the most popular orders is definitely their Pork Chop Cutlet bun.  It arrives hot and fresh on a toasted bun with mayo and cheese in it.

I absolutely love escargots, and when I saw it on the menu, I definitely wanted to try it out.  I love the little morsels of snails baked atop a little fluff of mashed potato.  It was really good.

Baked Escargots w/Garlic Butter (8pcs) $5.75

I tried a dish that I normally don’t order:  Shredded Tenderloin Fried Korean Noodle with Black Pepper.  The black pepper was quite intense in this dish and the Korean noodles were spicy throughout.  The shredded tenderloin pieces were pretty good.

I enjoyed the Panna Cotta dessert.  It was cute and really smooth!

Panna Cotta (original flavour). $4.25

This is another popular order on their menu:  Yunnan Vermicelli with Deep Fried Tofu Fish Cakes in Fish Broth.  The fish broth was not too intense or full of MSG.  The noodles were firm and smooth.  I particularly enjoyed eating the fish fillets; they were soft and chewy!

Every so often, I love indulging in a rather heavy option like baked rice.  This time, I ordered the Baked Pork Chop & Cheese with Tomato & Cream Sauce on Rice.  You can tell by the name that this is quite a heavy dish; there are two huge slices of pork chops that lay on top of the baked rice and the tomato and cream sauce are rich and drench through the fried rice underneath.  I really liked how the pork chops were seasoned well and not rough-tasting at all.  It was a great option.

This is definitely a spot that I will drop into in the future for a quick and delicious meal!  The service is relatively fast and the environment is casual.  It’s great for a one-person meal or to catch up with friends. 🙂
