My first visit to Streats Hong Kong Cafe was several years ago and my favourite from this restaurant was always the curry chicken with bread. However, standards have dropped down the years and I haven't been visiting it for awhile.
So not long ago my buddy and I decided to give it a go again. We ordered the Chicken Chop Fried Rice to share. Most of the food here are priced reasonably below $12 and I believe this was around $8-9. However, I wasn't impressed by its portion, neither was the taste distinctive enough to make me like it. It only reminded me of something I can easily whip up at home considering that I'm not really a good cook.

Then we had the Fried Carrot Cake, this wasn't a disappointment because it actually tasted really yummy! However, it's quite different compared to the usual carrot cake we can get at hawker centres or food court, there's no egg and it's kind of spicy for people who can't take spicy food. Would be better if they place the chilli separately for diners to mix on their own. Other than that, it's not bad.

Overall, we still are not sure whether we would return again, as standards still are not matching up to my first impression of this place many years ago. Although they do have new installations of televisions and better service, there's more to the restaurant than just pure ambience and service as long as menu is concerned.
