Hong Kong - Breakfast at the Mido Cafe

klyeoh | Jul 28, 2014 09:24 AM

Mido Cafe is perhaps HK's best-preserved retro "cha chaan teng" (traditional HK teahouse-cafe), having even been featured in the iconic 1960 film, "The World of Suzie Wong".

Having breakfast here is like stepping back in time: the cafe still retains its tiled floors and booths with formica-topped tables, its menu items seemed stuck in a time-warp. We ordered:
- "Bo lo bao" with butter
- Ham-and-omelette toasted sandwich
- French toast, slathered with butter and syrup
- Crisp wanton skins with pig offal in sweet-sour sauce
- Eggplant-and-pork fried "yee fu" noodles
- HK-style milk tea
The food was passable, not outstanding. But one comes here to experience what an old HK cafe feels like, and for that, there's no beating Mido Cafe.
