Hong Kong themed restaurants are pretty much a dime a dozen nowadays. From “Char Chan Teng” to “Kei Tak Sek” and there’s even a coffee shop in Bandar Sungai Long with the name “Wan Chai”. As much as I enjoyed the food in these establishments, I don’t know how close they are to the “real” Hong Kong food … because I’ve never stepped foot on the shores of Hong Kong. If then, who am I to comment on the food since I’ve never tasted real HK food? Rest assured … I do seek 3rd party critics and advices. Those who’ve actually been to HK or lived there … and better still, actually love HK.

Anyway, our story today brings us to another HK themed restaurant, Food & Tea Restaurants (doesn’t score much creativity point in the restaurant naming dept eh?) … in Berjaya Times Square, KL. ?????? reads (Fun Hei Tei Char Chan Teng) should directly be translated as Happy Land/Ground Coffee House. There are a couple of other outlets, one in Cheras and 2 others in JB. We’ll discuss about the one in BTC since I’ve only been to this one. The outlet is located adjacent to the GSC cinema – in fact, right next to it. The owner must be real smart, choosing such a strategic location. Cinema goers would probably drop by for a quick bite before going to the movies. The restaurant has pretty decent setups, I noted 3 different types of seatings … my favourite are the bright red ones. Generally, the deco exerts a very strong modern feel … but then again .. isn’t it typical among the HK restaurants and cafes?

Fortunately, we don’t need to fill up some forms to order our food although I might add that the restaurant’s probably shorthanded. I sat there for almost a good 10 minutes and no one is aware of my presence. A little irritated at first, I finally managed to put in my orders … and waited for my food to arrive, which is surprisingly fast!

Food and drinks in this joint are quite interesting, especially the desserts. This is what I ordered, for me and my partner… I had Roasted Honey Spare Ribs Rice, Fresh Lemon Honey drink and Mango & Yam “Tong Sui” while my partner got the Pork Chop Black Pepper Spaghetti and the Mango “Tong Sui”. As I said, I particularly like the “Tong Sui” presentation … and it taste pretty good as well. As for the foods, Roasted Honey Spare Ribs Rice was good – the meat is tender and juicy … The Pork Chop Black Pepper Spaghetti is a little dry but other than that .. it tasted quite decent. Overall, I would say that the place is quite commendable … only if they improve their service a little.
