After our not-too-satisfying lunch, we went back to Honolulu Cafe, only to discover that not only had the queue not moved much, it had also grew longer! Resigned to our fate, we began our 1-hour queue. Luckily, JY and AN were coming to join us 🙂
Because of ‘overwhelming response’, each person was allowed to ordered a maximum of 3 egg tarts. Everything else under Section A of the menu (Polo Buns, Durian Pastry, BBQ Pork Bun, Curry Fish Balls etc.) was sold out, so we just got ourselves 12 Honolulu Egg Tarts ($1.70++ each), Chicken Wings in Swiss Sauce ($6++), Peanut Butter Toast ($2++), Pork Chop Bun with Salad ($5++), 2 Honolulu Coffees ($3++), a Milk Tea ($3++), and a Yuan Yang ($3.30++). We were also strongly encouraged to order the only remaining dessert, Mango Pomelo Sago.
We were here for a late lunch, and the queue at Honolulu Cafe was too long. So, we headed to the empty Mak’s Noodles instead.
Ordered a Wanton Noodle Soup ($6.90++), and Beef Brisket and Tendon ($16.90++). For this price, we were quite shocked by the tiny size of the noodles, and even more shocked by the texture of the noodles, which was not at all springy. Well, but different people have preference for different texture.
The wantons were alright, but also reminded us of the shrimp dumplings that we used to buy at NTUC. We very much preferred the very flavourful beef brisket and tendon.
When we went to the counter for payment, the staff just responded with the total cost without even bothering to print the receipt, gosh!
Not exactly a satisfying lunch, so we decided to return to queue at Honolulu Cafe and hoped for the best… Somehow, this reminded us of our Hong Kong trip…
