#FoodPH - Take Trip Down Memory Lane From Your HongKong Trip at Honolulu Cafe!

Honolulu Café, regarded as the first cha chaan teng in Hong Kong since it opened in the 1940s, has made its way to the Philippines, bringing with it its distinctive Hong Kong Café-style foods and store concept, not to mention its glorious egg tarts, which critics and foodies have almost universally praised for being smooth, fluffy, and all-around holy delightful.

With a considerably greater room to improve your dining experience, the oldest and original Hong Kong Tea House, Honolulu HK Cafe, grows even bigger at their Greenbelt 3 location. Modern Chinese writing and drawings are painted on the restaurant's brightly colored dark green walls, and sporadic splashes of yellow and blue add to the relaxed and cheerful atmosphere of the space. This time it gets better: for a delectable feast, Honolulu HK Cafe now provides a variety of delicious roasts, including as BBQ Pork, Roasted Pork, Soy Chicken, and Roasted BBQ Pork Belly "Toro," along with options for rice.

When our order of curry fishballs arrived, the aroma brought back memories of exploring the HongKong night market. Even though it only consists of fish balls in a curry broth, this Hong Kong staple is available at practically every food stall along the night market, luring customers with the aroma of curry in the air. Curry Fishballs from Honolulu HK Cafe (P268) had the right aroma and tasted really good!

The Roasted Pork Belly (P450 Regular/P675 Half) is another meat classic with clear flavors and tactile contrasts with each biting. It has lightly crunchy crackling over succulent pork. The excellent crispness of the pork belly is immediately apparent from one glance at the slab, which has a layer of crunchy crackling that has been sliced cleanly without any fractures.A strong  crunch contrasted with the juicy, soft, and thinly layered fat of the pig marks the beginning of a bite. A coating of fiery mustard balances the pork's delicate yet flavorful aromas for a satisfying result. It is pork belly prepared correctly and is expertly accomplished.

The Deep Fried Prawn with Thousand Island Sauce (P588)is one of their best-selling entrees. Although it might appear to be your typical sweet-and-sour fried shrimp meal, we assure you that it is not. Each golden, crunchy-on-the-outside-succulent-on-the-inside nugget is covered in a tangy, moderately spicy thousand island dressing, and the shrimp's inherent sweetness bursts forth with each bite.

Another barbecue choice at Honolulu HK Cafe is the Soy Chicken (P 450 Half/P 900 Whole), which combines soy sauce with chicken to bring out the subtle flavors of the meat. The Soy Chicken's colorful tapestry of wholesome flavors is due to this opposing combination of flavors. Each bite is juicy and tender and bursts with flavor as it enters your lips. 

Bo Lo Bun
, which means "pineapple bun" in its literal translation, is only known as a pineapple bun due of its cracked top. It resembles the Japanese melon pan a lot. The Bo Lo BBQ Pork Bun (P60) from Honolulu HK Cafe includes Chinese pork barbecue filling (asado) inside of a sweet, flaky bread that isn't excessively thick for its size. This surpasses asado siopao in quality.

The Fried Rice with Olive and Luncheon Meat, Beef Brisket HK Curry Casserole, Yuan Yuang (Mixed Tea and Coffee with Condensed Milk), and Iced Red Bean with Milk are some other must-try Honolulu HK Cafe dishes. These very inventive and delicious meals incorporate both Western and traditional Chinese components.

Honolulu HK Cafe is located at Greenbelt 5, 2nd level, Makati City. Other branches are in SM Aura, Taguig City and Robinson's Place Manila.
