We had initially wanted to have porridge at 生記粥麵 San Kee Porridge which has a branch just opposite our hotel, but the place was closed today 😦 So, we headed to the 茶餐廳 cha chan teng beside it instead.
We had the 早餐A Breakfast Set A (HK$28) and the 营养早餐 Nutritious Breakfast (multiple options, HK$29), and were pleasantly surprised by the food. Our first time trying out a relatively unknown cha chan teng (usually we go to our favourite haunts, or those rather popular with tourists type) and the food was not bad at all!

We were nearby the area and decided to take a slow walk over to check out this place which we had paddled past a few weeks ago when we went to Coney Island.
On a late Saturday morning, the cafe was quite crowded (I guess many were here for brunch), but there were still a few tables available, so we did not had to queue at all 🙂
We already knew what we wanted to order, gathering from online reviews (and offline reviews from friends) and placed our orders!
Mr J told us that his cousin has opened a cafe here, so we thought that we should pop over to show some support 🙂
Tried the Philly Cheese Steak Bun 费城芝士牛仔包 (RM5.50) and Tomato Based Luncheon Meat & Egg Macaroni 餐蛋通粉 (RM6.50). For drinks, we shared a Iced Hawthorn 山楂水 (RM1.90). We had initially wanted to try one of the sets, but alas, egg tarts were already sold out by the time we arrived just past 1pm.
For this price, they were certainly quite generous with the amount of minced meat and cheese in the cheese steak bun. We also liked that the bun was quite soft. Overall, this bun was slightly on the saltier side though.
The macaroni arrived shortly after we downed the bun. The tomato gravy was tangy and sweet, whetting up our appetite. There was a generous amount of luncheon meat strips, that looked more like ham. The pasta was cooked just nice, and was slightly bouncy, not bad at all.
The iced hawthorn provided a refreshing relief as it was a really hot day today, but I preferred the nutmeg drink to this.
