On a Monday, we had afternoon tea at Cowman Restaurant. We chose this place over the soup noodles place next door since it looked more clean, spacious, and inviting. They had a loud sign that showed they had free wifi too so obviously for me that is a sure yes (haha).
Cowman Restaurant (interesting name) is a HK-style cafe that serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner sets. Yum!! My kind of restaurant. ❤
We noticed that their afternoon tea time lasted until 6 p.m. and it was only 5:10 p.m. at that point so it was perfect timing to partake in the affordable and cheaper food. Yay!
We ended up ordering three combo sets: fish noodles, pig trotters with rice noodles, and a satay beef sandwich (the last one was my very favourite). Each set came with a drink — we ordered two watercress with honey and one almond milk.
I loved that they offered free wifi in the restaurant and used it right away after I asked one of the servers for the password. Fast, high-speed wifi = <3.
Our food arrived shortly. The pig trotters were sooo soft and tender. Definitely a high score.
I loved the fish noodles. They were actually strings of real fish! Yummmm!! 😀 You could tell by looking at it that it wasn’t just a regular ‘pretend’ fish noodle. The only downside is that the bowl was quite small and only had a few long strands of the noodles. The rest of the bowl was filled with leafy lettuce and a tasty clear soup base.
Because of the limited quantity, the third dish definitely filled me up. It was a satay beef sandwich served in half. At first bite, the bread was lightly fried to a perfect crisp and the saucy beef was not really covered in satay like it was advertised in the menu — it was covered in peanut butter sauce plus something else like curry. It was soooo good! The pieces of beef were not rough either. I finished my half of the sandwich in a jiffy. :9
I really enjoyed the food here and the dining experience. It wasn’t too crowded; it was relaxed and I didn’t feel like anyone was rushing me out. The servers were also pleasant. I’d definitely return again. 🙂
