my aunt has been wanting to take me to this famous dessert place..since last year! .. and we finally went last night! this shop is famous for their “non-traditional” chinese desserts..we got there around 9 and there were a lot of people waiting in line!
my aunt ordered the “rainbow pearl“.. which is fruits + grass jelly + sago
i didn’t like it cause of the grass jelly… but this is one of the more famous desserts there..
and i ordered the “SUMMER” … which is fruits + 2 scoops of ice-cream (you pick your own flavours) + 2 waffle rolls! i like! fresh fruits, delicious mango and cookies-n-creme icecream
good alternative to hui lau san cause it’s not as artificially sweet! and the fruits were very fresh!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!

so..my friend and i continued the hk style cafe journey.. and our next stop was Mido..
it’s been around for a very long time..more than 50 years..and apparently.. it hasn’t changed the interior.thus, it retains the retro feel.. with the green tiles.. and ceiling fans.. plus! a lot of movies and tv shows were filmed here!
we ordered the baked pork chop rice…but cause the presentation gave us a shock (doesn’t it look sloppy?).. we didn’t expect much ..tastewise… BUT!! after one spoonful of the rice..i fell in love…the rice was fried first with eggs..and the tomato sauce was really tasty.. i think it’s the best baked pork chop rice sauce… and the pork was really tender…
apparently.. i order the wrong dish cause my foodie aunt said that their baked spareribs rice is the most famous.. o well. next time…
for dessert… we ordered
peanut butter condensed milk toast.. yummm
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
