AJ and I saw this new restaurant at Mall of Asia (MOA) in one of our trips there last month. Its called Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe - a modern restaurant that serves the best of Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai’s street food.
You gotta try their Cold Barley Drink (my favorite!) and this jelly drink with long johns and nata de coco - both are house specialties.
I got curious with this P95.00 luncheon rice meal that is composed of just white rice, fried egg and luncheon meat – so I had it. Turned out to be good and very filling. A total comfort food!
AJ tried the Hong Kong Pork Chops (priced at less than P200) and there’s nothing spectacular about this dish. The pork was also dry. Having said that, I think we still got more value for my money with the luncheon meat rice meal.
Of course, we have to have the dumplings / gyoza. It was priced at P112.00 (for 5 pieces) and tasted just average.
The total food bill came at less than P500 for 2 persons (pretty cheap!).
Despite the lackluster taste of the pork chops, we still would want to come back here to try their many other dishes (and desserts) – all at very reasonable prices.
One thing that’s compromise here though is the quality of the food. For that kind of price, we shouldn’t be expecting 5-star Asian cuisine, that you could find only at 5-star hotels.
Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe is located at SM Mall of Asia (beside the iMax Theater).
