Polly recommended this place to us. The Hollywood Steak House located on Leslie Road (just behind Wendy’s on No 3 Rd) is basically a HK Style Cafe despite the name. We would not have found this place on our own perhaps because the signs in the restaurant front is almost all in Chinese and it’s located out of the way from the busy No 3 Rd.
So, what defines a HK Style Cafe? Why … it’s the Milk Tea! They came with every dish we ordered.
Suanne ordered a Personalised Combo which allows a selection of two dishes from a menu of perhaps 15. The Combo also comes with a soup, garlic toast and spaghetti. All these for only $9.95. Here is what she had:
The Corn Cream Soup is very creamy and very rich of corn flavour. It has chunks of artificial crab meat in it. It looked nice and tastes great.
Oh, the Garlic Toast were the prettiest we had ever seen. A ring of burnt outside crust which was crispy but the insides were soft … not sure if this is freshly baked bread but it sure tastes like it. We could just have this toast for lunch! Too bad they gave only one piece.
Remember the choice of two from the menu? Suanne chose the Garlic Mussels and Albertan Beef Cube. The Albertan Beef Cube is crisp on the outside and tender and moist inside.
There were four large mussels too. We felt that this dish is worth more than $9.95 else where.
Nanzaro ordered Malaysian Style Rice Noodle for $6.95 . Its Fried Kway Teow with sliced onions, sweet peppers, prawns, BBQ pork and eggs. Nothing special about it. Sigh, my son had not acquired their parent’s fine taste for good food. 🙂
Arkensen is no different. He ordered Yeong Chow Fried Rice ($5.95). There was a generous helping of prawns, peas and BBQ pork. Both the boys are the same … they will always order either fried rice, fried noodles or a bowl of noodle soup. Tell me, is this a good thing or a bad thing?
Total bill came up to $27 (inclusive of taxes and tips). Not bad, right?
