Hong Kong-style Western Food (HK-style "cafes")

Blueicus | Jan 9, 2007 08:47 PM

In the General Discussion forums, someone mentioned wanting locations to HK-style cafes in Toronto and GTA, so I'll start off a short list of the places I go to and people can add on from there

Maydoh Restaurant (Denison & Kennedy, Markham ON)- It's located in the plaza with Honey & Garlic Cuisine. A very small, hole in the wall sort of place with pretty decent prices, a good milk tea and decent specials. There's one waitress who's really bad... quality of service is a bit of a lottery.

Hollywood Cafe (Market Village, just outside the food court on the north side)- A "fancier" place that has a more "western" menu. The French toast wasn't great (no PB), but some of the items I noticed looked interesting.

New City Restaurant (Peachtree Centre, Hwy 7 & Kennedy)- My favourite for french toast. Very filling and good. IIRC, the lunch specials were far less impressive. "Good" breakfast, used to be very busy at that time, I don't know how busy it is now

Victory Restaurant (Same plaza)- The breakfast I felt was somewhat inferor to New City, but less drabby.

Rural Restaurant (Glen Watford & Sheppard, the plaza on the west side)- I go there quite often, two rotating and a list of set lunch specials, one "western" and one more traditionally "Chinese"... though the rotating lunch specials are cheaper and a better deal. Better service than Maydoh.
