Hong Kong Restaurant 香港小館(巴洛奧圖)

Sunday, June 23rd, 2013

Those who live in Hong Kong must have one or two favorite neighborhood restaurants where they can go for a decent and reasonably priced meal. Hong Kong Restaurant 香港小館 in Palo Alto is one of those local eateries.

The FoodLover and Junior went there to have a quick lunch of fried rice and noodle and was not disappointed. The price was right. Where else in the Bay area can you find a dish of good tasting fried rice for US$6.50.

Broadway Bistro 百老匯茶餐廳(密爾布瑞市)

20130608 Broadway Bistro BHong Kong style cafes in the Bay area usually offer traditional cafe food you can find in Hong Kong plus some American snacks. The FoodLover and Junior were in Millbrae at noon and picked Broadway Bistro 百老匯茶餐廳 for a quick lunch.

When Junior was ordering his usual Beef Fried Rice, he was happy to see French Fries on the menu and wanted that too. FoodLover wanted to try Baked Spaghetti with Bolognese Sauce.

French Fries were crispy and as good as those that could be found anywhere. Junior judged the Fried Rice to be acceptable. The Bolognese sauce was a little hard due to overcooking but overall the dish was OK.

This is not a restaurant that you will travel a long way to enjoy. If you are hungry in the neighborhood, it is acceptable.

Real Beef and Potato – In-N-Out Burger

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

McDonald’s may be the most widely known burger joint worldwide. In California, In-N-Out Burger rules. Whoever had tried the burgers of real beef at In-N-Out would not want to go back to McDonald’s unless they wanted something other than burgers. French fries there are made of real potatoes too. You see them cutting whole potatoes to strips in front of your eyes.

Currently, there are 200+ In-N-Out stores in California plus a few more in Arizona, Nevada, Texas and Utah. The rest of the world will have to wait!
