Wan chai hong kong cafe serves a variety of hong kong fare such as chinese noodles, fried rice, sandwiches Etc

This was my first time dining at this restaurant. Once seated, you will be given an order form to place your order and then proceed to the cashier to order the food. 

I decided to order a beef egg rice and a side dish of Fried Tofu with briased mincepork. 
The beef egg rice was served warm, in a small bowl. The rice is at the bottom and on top of it lies slices of beef with a runny egg yolk. The top portion of the rice was drenched in the sauce, the beef was soft and not dry at all, it was cooked pretty well. 
In my opinion, the best way to enjoy this dish is to mix everything together, so that the flavour will be balanced and you will be able to savour the goodness in every mouth. 

For the fried tofu, the skin was incredibly crispy and the inside was soft. The mincepork was flavourful and quite delicious too! 

Overall, i enjoy my experience dining here and will frequent this restaurant again.

Ordered the chicken baked rice here and it was a little disappointing for the taste. The chicken was a bit burned and the carrots were a bit hard and uncooked. Cheese were alot though so it will be good for cheese lovers! The gst and service charge is included in the price in the menu though. Tried the wanton noodles as well and it wasn't really very authentic hk food. Soup that came with the bake rice tasted good though with carrots, wintermelon and mushroom inside.

As of 2013, Wan Chai Hong Kong Tea Room is now 12 years old since its opening. In all that buzz and fuzz, the cafe mimics the cosmopolitan city of Hong Kong. They served the food lightning-fast, but it took quite awhile to make payment.Sadly, the concept of a 'tea room' is nowhere near its title.

Sadly, the concept of a 'tea room' is nowhere near its title. I felt uncomfortable eating in the restaurant because there were no partitions for privacy. With the open-concept restaurant near Daiso Japan in IMM, anyone who passes by would naturally want to take a look at what you're eating.
The menu doesn't clearly state that payment must be made when you order, and it is not surprising to spot a queue at the counter.

I ordered a bowl of Shrimp Wanton Noodles, while my dining partners ate Dumping Soup Noodles (水饺面)for SGD4.50 each. One can't really tell the difference between the two.

Take a closer look and you will find that the Dumplings are larger in size as compared to the Shrimp Wanton.
The fillings of the Shui Jiao consisted of minced meat and chopped vegetables.

The wanton's filling is made of minced pork, coarsely diced shrimp, finely minced ginger, finely minced onions, sesame oil and soy sauce. I can't help but find a close similarity with the Italian tortellini or Jewish kreplach.

We also ordered Fried Brinjal with pork floss for SGD3.00. It was crispy, delicious and fragrant all at once! I would definitely recommend OpenRicers to try it.

Recommended Tips
1. Go really early, avoid lunch peak hours and dinner peak hours. We spotted a really long queue. The entrance of the restaurant is at the Daiso Japan's side.
2. Avoid bringing bulky bags because there isn't really any space for you to place your belongings.
3. The lighting there is great to take good pictures of your food!

Neighbourhood traditional Chinese-style dessert, they were both thickly sweet. Classic bowl was hardly found nowadays, I recalled that I saw it before at my home when I was still a naïve child. Red bean soup was added little ginkgo nuts inside, nicely mushy blended. Barley dried beancurd soup was naturally decent, feeling like home-cooked. The price was around $3.00 per bowl, we shared among each other.

Yesterday we went to IMM, after going to Daiso, dunno where to eat, so we decided to eat at Wan Chai HK Tea Room just in front of Daiso, the place was crowded, but we managed to get some seats.
We ordered the HK Pork Chop Baked Rice, Chicken with Sausage and Mushroom and Wan Chai Special Fried Rice.
The HK Pork Chop Baked Rice was okay.. somehow i'm not certain it's pork.. it's like chicken.
There's raisin on the baked rice.. that makes the taste become a bit funny for me, I prefer the Xin Wang's Pork Chop baked rice compared to this one.
The Chicken with sausage and mushroom, I thought it was baked rice, coz the menu is under baked rice.
When it came, it's like those herbal food.. which I am not fond of..
The above 2 meals came with the herbal nut soup hehe.. like the picture I attached, I dun really like it, but my hubby likes it.
Then the Wan Chai Special Fried Rice I think is the specialty, I saw everyone eating that.
I suppose it was nice, since I forgot to ask my helper how it taste..
Overall, it's okay, not bad..

Of everything we ordered, I only like their Ice Milk Tea. Didn't know their Ice drinks come with Ice-cream, no wonder the price is double of the hot version.I had the Scallop, Salmon and Asparagus Baked Rice. Wasn't to my liking. Their rice meal comes with a complimentary soup, too. Prawn Paste Chicken wasn't as good as those I had from Zi Char stall. Tofu with floss was okay, but i dislike the floss quality. Our dinner costs $52. I think it's too expensive for 3 rice sets, 2 sides and 3 drinks.

Whenever there is such restaurant or cafe that named themselves Hong Kong something, I am always looking forward to some nice Hong Kong food even though it is not those authentic ones but at least the taste must be good. Moreover, it is always long queue. So the anticipation is even higher.

So for dinner, we ordered Shrimp Wonton Noodles dry, Prawn Paste Chicken and Sliced Tender Beef with Crispy Noodles. Plus my drink, Lemon Ribena.

First, Prawn Paste Chicken. This is one of the popular one which I think almost every table has a plate. It comes with 3 pieces at a price of $6.80. The aroma of the chicken can be smelt from far. It is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. With every bite, the smell purge out and along with oil. It is actually quite oily and not juicy. Some may mistaken it as its juiciness but it is not. It actually looks dry on the outside but never know the inside is quite oily.

Next, the crispy noodles that is topped with sliced beef. I love crispy noodles especially when they have sauce that we can mix and blend with the noodles. And the noodles will eventually soften. You still taste the crispiness. But the sauce is a little salty. And I can't deny that the beef are tender but it is not properly cooked. I can taste the bits of rawness. I'm not having steak now so I'm talking about cooked beef and not medium done or medium raw type.

Lastly the shrimp wonton noodles. It comes with a soup that is not very tasty. But the wontons are big and prawns within are nice, fresh and springy. But the taste of the overall is average. Nothing to rave about. As compared to the food centres, it is rather expensive and not worth to have wonton noodles here.

Next time round, I will come for their desserts instead.

Hong Kong food-especially the nai cha(milk tea), sandwiches, pineapple buns(Bo low bao) are some of my comfort food to go to. Love the pineapple buns here which are freshly baked and go so well with a slice of butter in between the warm bread. The crust of the bread is crispy and the inside is soft and fluffy. Love the aromatic and thick milk tea here too. Great for an afternoon tea snack!

Nice presentation, chicken was big enough for the portion (kinda like 1/2 of a very small chicken), few pieces of carrots, not much cheese and very dry. Soup was good as usual.Saw the photo on the pillar and ordered it. Chicken was just not too my liking. It was too "healthy", not oily and all. Not enough curry and cheese, so the entire thing tasted quite dry. Not sure if they were too busy today or something, it was 7pm. Definitely could be better.

I like the pork chop baked rice from wan chai. The pork chop is not too dry and tough, in fact it is very tender and juicy. I like the sauce they coat the pork chop with, has this sweetish taste. The rice is very fragrant, not the normal rice we eat. What I like most about this dish is the melted cheese on top of the baked rice. they are very generous with the cheese, every spoon you take, there is some cheese sticking together with the rice.

We also ordered deep fried wanton as sides. The deep fried wanton taste really normal. Nothing special about the wanton. My impression was that the wantons were bought at supermarket and all they do was to deep fried them.I think i will not visit or bring my friends to Wan Chai Hong Kong Tea Room for meal next time after such bad dining experience.
