Sept 11, 2017: Today we went to a classic Hong Kong style cafe for breakfast and lunch called Chrisly Cafe (華星冰室) in Mong Kok (although it also shows up as “Capital Cafe” online..). Since we were staying at a nearby hotel, we actually got 2 free meal vouchers to Chrisly Cafe. Yay!
We got there today just at 11:55 a.m. which was enough time to enjoy their breakfast (their breakfast hours were from 7 to 12 p.m.). We ordered the traditional breakfast which included macaroni with ham, two eggs and buttered toast, and a drink.
I loved the interior look of the HK style cafe. It was bustling with lots of people but luckily we walked right in without having to wait. On the wall were lots of photos of celebrities who had been to the restaurant before.
The breakfast arrived within seconds of ordering it. I love HK style cafes and their speediness!
The scrambled egg was delicious!!! So fluffy and smooth. The best kind! ^_^ The buttered toast was thick and chewy too.
The macaroni with ham was standard. It was good too! 🙂
A few minutes after the clock struck 12, we ordered the standard All Day Meal combo with our second voucher. For the All Day Meal, this included BBQ pork spaghetti or macaroni, eggs and ham and buttered toast, and a drink. It was relatively similar to the breakfast combo.
The scrambled eggs were just as good in this one. The ham was standard.
The BBQ pork and spaghetti were standard no frill items.
After we finished our food, we left and saw there were people waiting in line! I’m really glad I got to try this HK style cafe.
I was looking it up on OpenRice after the visit and it looks like the restaurant is opened by celebrities and features a dish of scrambled eggs with truffles on it! I’d love to return to try it. 🙂
