HK Style Cafes in YVR

A user requested HK-style cafes in Vancouver.
Please confirm addresses and phone numbers prior to reliance.

-- Gloucester Cafe or Cafe Gloucester (3338 Cambie Street, 604 873-3338) -- I usually go to this one :)

Nice items are: chicken rice, Portugese style; pork chops baked over spaghetti; its version of spaghetti bolognese (I kind of like this dish, for some odd reason, as a general category). These reheat well, and can be purchased for at-home consumption. There are specials on a daily basis when soup and dessert will be included.

-- Top Gun Steakhouse (unclear if this is the name of the place; according to a friend, the translation in Cantonese is "pah wong tze wong", i.e., the king of the kings of steak) Not to be confused with Top Gun Seafood.

-- I Cafe or I-Cafe

-- Hugo Restaurant (3254 Cambie Street) -- Not all of its dishes (nor most of its dishes) are of the HK-style cafe-type. Also, why not go to Gloucester?

-- The Boss Bakery & Restaurant (532-534 Main Street; near the traditional Chinatown) -- This eatery is much noisier than the other ones. It has a more "mass production", "speedy execution"-type manenr. Food also inferior to Gloucester and I-Cafe.

The above list is of course non-exhaustive.
