Dining in Toronto - Hong Kong Bistro Cafe in Toronto China Town

Today i was out all day with my bestie and the hubby, b4 i met up with the bestie, me and the hubby were out to get lunch because we were sooo hungry~~~and we decide to go to Hong Kong Bistro Cafe(新香港餐廳) in Toronto China Town. For those of you who live in The GTA, some of you guys might heard of it, some of you might not, but it is a great Cha Chaan Teng(茶餐廳). It is still Chinese food, but with a western twist. This style of dinning originated from Hong Kong, and can be find all over the world where there are HK people..

Now if you are native Hker, i think you might really enjoy this place, since as the hubby(who is a native Hker) put it: pretty authentic compare with all the other Cha Chaan teng he tried. If you go During Lunch hour, they always have great special thats super affordable, and can fill you up quick~~~their dinner special menus is also good~~~i luv luv luv the Macau style baked chicken~~~not the best one i have(which was in HK), but the best one i had in North America for sure~~~~

Thats the place with address.
I tried to take pictures of the place outside, but i think google map does it better than my camera~~~lol...but i seriously recommend this place, their food is so so so yummy~~~

So here is what i order today, i ask for the Lunch special B: Grill Beef Tenderloin with mushroom sauce with Cream soup, and a Cold Coffe with Tea(Yuenyeung), and a French Toast~~~

My cream Soup

My entree with rice

My french Toast

part of their menu, they have many many more than this
So ya if you guys are in the area, and would luv some great tasting food, try this place out. this has being my go to place to eat in Chinatown for the past 4 years if i don't know what to eat..i always end up here~~~Now about what to order, if you are a native HKer i dont think you need me to tell you, but if you are unfamiliar with this style of restaurant (Cha Chaan Teng), please for the love of god don't order stuff like "fried rice", "Sweet Sour Pork" "Won Ton soup", or any typical Chinese dish you can get from any other Chinese restaurant...if you are there during lunch and dinner hour, try their special cuz usually thats what the chef are really good at making HK style western food~~~or you can try my favorite "Macau style baked Chicken" i luv luv luv that dish~~~~it didn't order it today cuz it wasnt on the special, and it doenst come with soup if order a full serving...

This place is really really good, i brought quite a few of my Frds who are Hker, they all love the place~~~so believe me when i say it is pretty authentic HK style diner~~~and you know, if you are tired of all the "Kung pao chicken" and stuff try this place out, it is really good~~~and I read alot of review of this place that is not very favorable....all i can say is if you order stuff like Sweet sour pork in a Hk cha chaan teng, you are really missing out on the good food that they are good at making~~~~

As always with Lotsa Luv and XOXO.J.
