Hawker Food at Hong Kong Tea Garden Cafe (Georgetown)

I was at Hong Kong Tea Garden coffee shop a few weeks ago while on the way to Lorong Susu to buy some durians. It's located along Macalister Road just directly opposite the petrol station and Court's Mammoth. We normally stopped by at Hong Kong Tea Garden every time when we are at this area. It is an extremely popular eatery as the coffee shop itself is decorated with marble top tables and even offers air conditioned dinning experience within the premises. For those of you who like to slot it out in the hot air and prefer a close and personal dining experience with the hawkers, there is an open section too. The food hawker delights ranges from the all time favourite fried koay teow, fried oyster, clay pot noodles, grilled seafood, roasted duck, western food, dim sum and many more.

The Western food is nice and reasonable too. The toast bread that comes with it is uniquely done and the coleslaw is freshly made. This cost RM6 which I thought was acceptable. Nonetheless, I still prefer the Western food at Esplanade's food court.

The duck rice stall also sell koay chap. Besides the koay teow, it comes with a generous helping of duck meat and innards and what not. This is certainly a dish for those with an adventurous spirit.

For those less adventurous, you can get the usual sar hor fun with egg. This one is rather nice.

If you like some variety, you can also order the loh bak.

The wantan mee is reasonably ok and slightly on the expensive side.

Another hawker food that is popular here is the clay pot noodles.

During the day, Hong Kong Tea Garden offer dim sum from 5.30 am to 12 pm. On the other hand, in the evenings, it offers a selection of hawker delight from 6pm till 3am. For directions and more about their food offerings, please visit their website.

Western food serve with a bun is common but not with a toast bread. I rarely see this...something new for me to try out.

Yes, very good observation. I havent seen toast bread being served anywhere except this place. No wonder it's a crowd puller.
