If the line ups are any indication, I'd say Lido is pretty epic. Pineapple bun and a slab of butter. Not strictly a HK style cafe since they serve up anything from noodle soups to clay pot rice, but they have all the regular breakfasts and bake rice meals.



You like? Yeah, you like.

Without a doubt, Lido is #1. Fresh out of the oven egg tarts and pineapple buns (w/ or w/o the slab of butter). Milk tea / coffee / milk tea-coffee mix. You really can't get more HK style cafe than that.

Another recent option is Loyal Cafe. Their food aren't the best tasting stuff around (but it isn't bad at all), but for some reason, the taste and smell of their food is exactly how the same food tastes and smells like in HK. That and their milk tea really packs a punch. Good stuff.

Oh yes, I totally need a recommendation on some seriously good baked pork chop rice. There used to be a few places that served some very good stuff, but somehow, things just haven't been the same.

Alleluia on westmin doesn't charge extra for cold drinks AND you get a free refill.

Alleluia gets my pick for convenience and value. Baked porteguese chicken on Rice is legit.
I've heard good things about the Copa café across from the Richmond Oval but haven't had the chance to try it out for lunch yet.

I used to frequent Mambo at Aberdeen for Baked Pork Chop on Rice, but lately M cafe in Coquitlam on Barnet is so much better imo. Expensive though. I haven't tried it at enough places to say it's the best, but I pretty much only go to M Cafe for Baked Pork Chop unless someone tells me it's better elsewhere.

Silver Tower is better than all those imo. It may look a bit shady inside, but it's the most consistent.

Alleluia is only good for the pick 2/3 menus - their other dishes aren't as good.

Kingspark is good too, but it doesn't open late. (pricey, though)

Gloucester used to be good until they switched a few chefs around.

Copa is overpriced as well.

BT Cafe is good, but doesn't look that great inside.

The rest of Lido's menu isn't very good and it's overpriced. If I eat there I only get the items that you mentioned.

My picks:

Alleluia, Lido, Silver Tower, Rosebud, Kingspark and Mambo inside Aberdeen.

My experience with Copa was meh...

Has anyone tried Loyal Cafe?

Mickz, if you haven't tried their traditional home style "old fire" (ie. slow cooked?) soup jugs, you gotta give them a try. Out of the 4 or 5 that they serve, there is one that I don't particularly like. But the rest are all superb. They include tons of ingredients in the soup jug, and the soup itself is fantastic.

I have no idea what the MSG content is in those soups -- I would not be surprised at all if they use some. But I don't get thirsty after having it.

But I agree with everyone here -- Lido is definitely on the pricey side.
