The bright yellow Hong Kong-style egg tarts were part of my childhood. Honolulu HK Cafe brings us all the best comfort food that Hong Kong has to offer and more! They recently opened a new branch in SM Aura, and we got to try some of their bestsellers, as well as new innovations.
To start off, we had coffee or milk tea while waiting. I had both in the form of the Yuan Yang (PHP 130) which is a combination of both coffee and milk tea with condensed milk.
Something that Honolulu Cafe is known for are their fluffy buns with crispy exteriors! Some of them are stuffed with char siu pork while some are blest with a coffee-flavored crust with a wedge of butter.
For some old time favorites, I liked the delicately breaded Deep Fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk (PHP 488), the sweet savory Deep Fried Honey Garlic Pork Spareribs (PHP 288), and the creamy Beef Brisket in Hong Kong Curry (PHP 328)!
Baked Rice and Baked Spaghetti
Some innovative European fusion dishes are the baked casseroles with stringy mozzarella cheese like the Baked Rice in Portuguese Style (PHP 278) which reminds me of Filipino spaghetti but with rice.
