This restaurant features Hong Kong Style American Cooking. The front
section provides quick service and light healthy food; think fresh juices, pastries, buns
and sandwiches as well as soups and pancakes. American style table service and hardy meals
are available in the section to the rear.
The back section with its twinkling multi-colored tiny ceiling lights
has a lengthy menu that runs the gamut from a well made French Onion Soup ($3.50) to
Seafood Paella for two ($25.95) . Salads range from the Mixed Greens ($2.95) to Cold Filet
Mignon ($7.95). Entrees include various forms of chicken, beef, lamb and pork. The U.K.
Broiled Platter for two includes beef, pork chop, sausages, chicken and lamb with French
Fries ($28.95). Here, in the background, you will hear American popular music.
The day we visited, we especially enjoyed the Cream of Seafood Soup
with its elegant topping of Puff Pastry ($4.96) and the Classic Ox Tail Stew flavor
enhanced with red wines ($5.95). This was served with a mound of rice on the side. Our
other entrée was a spicy steak with a black pepper sauce which was presented with mixed
vegetables and rice ($6.95).
There are a number of beverages available from beer (domestic and
imported) to wines, soda, coffee or tea either hot or cold. We recommend the Jasmine tea.
Our servers, Sammy and Jessica, as well as the manager, Piet Li, were
great help in explaining the Hong Kong based chains thoughts in presenting that
citys version of American dishes. Its an interesting and different concept and
the results are quite pleasing.
