When I first heard about Hong Kong and Little Baguio being in the same place, I totally got confused! As a traveling foodista, I am always up for new things and when my friend told me about this Hong Kong inspired restaurant along Little Baguio, of course I got excited!!!
LOCATION & SPACE(4/5)
As someone who travels with a car, parking is very important for me, however, being in the streets of Little Baguio, parking is definitely a problem. I suggest you bring along a driver or maybe a friend who wouldn’t mind looking for a parking space.
As for the space inside the restaurant itself, it can accommodate quite handful of people. However, if you go there around 6:00PM, expect to fall in line for a very long period of time.
It absolutely felt like Hong Kong! The whole set up of the restaurant, the structure, and how it looks on the inside – it definitely is like being in the streets of Hong Kong.
Seeing the prices, it’s definitely affordable even for a minimum-wage earner. Their food prices range from Php25.00-Php200.00 which is definitely worth it.
TASTE AND PRESENTATION(4/5)
Well, for a restaurant that promises to be like that of the street food in Hong Kong, you can’t really expect that much in terms of presentation. However, based on how they present their food, it definitely feels a lot like Hong Kong.
1. HK Salted Fish & Spearibs Taosi Combination
Served in Hong Kong’s famous claypot rice serving, this dish is definitely a must try for its price of Php165.00. However, when they mentioned that the spearibs is cooked with taosi, I was really expecting to taste that distinct taosi flavor.
As for the HK salted fish, expect it to be really salty! But, being said that the spearibs lacked the taosi flavor, the salted fish really did add a good combination in terms of its final flavor when eaten all together.
2. Big Isaw
I have to be honest I was a expecting a little bit more rather that 1 stick of pork intestine. For the price of Php25.00, it was alright. Instead of the grilled ones that we usually see in our streets, this one’s deep fried and what I liked about it is that it’s still flavorful plus it’s not oily despite how it was cooked.
3. Laksa Soup in Steam Boat
Priced at Php180.00 this naturally spiced laksa soup was the main star of the show (for me). The spiciness of it was okay for my liking because, like I mentioned, they used natural spicing ingredients. It contains the usual ingredients we see in a Hong Kong made soup which are tofu, bean sprouts, squid balls, and of course, noodles.
For the price, it’s good for sharing already and it will definitely pass as your lunch or dinner meal.
It definitely brought me back to my favorite place in the world, which is Hong Kong. The way they presented their food and how it taste definitely tickled my palette and I honestly can’t wait to bring my family here.
I haven’t been to their branch which is in Banawe, but for the branch here in Little Baguio, the only thing I can complain about is the parking space for customers. But overall, I am definitely satisfied with everything.
