Everyone knows about Cafe Hollywood, right? 😀 The first and original location of City Cafe Hollywood is located right on the outskirts of Market Village and has been there for over a decade. I remember first going there for afternoon tea with my mom many years ago when I was a kid and now it’s made popular by us GenYTO kids who go there every Thursday evening and anytime during the week too for cheap eats and delicious food. Cafe Hollywood is a modern style Hong Kong style cafe that features a lot of old-style Hollywood memorabilia and decor. It’s a really nice place!
In my first review of this place, I talked a little bit about their typical cafe food. In this review of their new-ish location on Kennedy Road near Denison, I’ll talk about what we had there recently!
We like to believe that because we go there so frequently and give them so much business (we literally pack the entire place on Thursday evenings), that that’s what offered them the ability to open this new location. This location location at Kennedy Road takes up the old facilities of the Burger King fast food restaurant that used to be here. They completely renovated the entire space to make it look super classy and nice. The environment in here is even nicer than the one at City Hollywood Cafe! However, it doesn’t have as much old-school Hollywood memorabilia as the other location.
We came here recently on a Thursday (as usual) after 10 p.m. and I ordered the French Toast from their midnight menu. It’s an amazing French toast that is topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum! They prepare it so deliciously here! Clarissa ordered a dish of Portuguese Chicken Rice. I tried a bit of it and it was so good! The chicken was so tender and the Portuguese sauce was yummy.
On another recent visit, I was telling Jessica all about their amazing deep fried chicken wings with fries and gravy that we ended up ordering it when we arrived. It was another late night feast but I loved the wings. It was just as crispy and well fried as the original location. How do they do it!? Chinese places like this just know how to deep fry chicken wings to perfection so that it’s not too over-fried and the inside meat is left tender and moist. The exterior was perfectly crispy and light! It was so good! I always choose the Pepper Chili flavour. 🙂 The fries were also remarkably crispy with the most delicious gravy. Loved it!
It’s so nice to see that this new location maintains the same standard and quality as their original location. This location does close at midnight though, which is earlier than the other location. It’s not as popular yet, but it’s also a good alternative to choose if the original location is packed. 🙂
Have you been here yet?! The perfect wings place! Also, perfect for casual afternoon teas, lunches, and dinners!
