Hong Kong Bing Sutt Cafe & Co

by - May 30, 2017

Hong Kong Bing Sutt Cafe & Co is like one of the many cafes that you'll find all over the streets and alley ways of Hong Kong. Unlike Western cafes, HK style cafes serve Canto-Western cuisine, which is unique to Hong Kong. As the name suggests Canto-Western cuisine is a combination of Cantonese and Western dishes served in the local way. 

The dishes are simple and unsophisticated, including things like HK style milk tea, toasts, fried rice, and instant noodles (I can feel my tummy rumbling when thinking about these dishes 😆). However, they are very characteristic and part of the locals' way of life. So when Mr Piggy and I saw HK Bing Sutt we were very excited to try it!

These old mail boxes on the wall do create an authentic Hong Kong experience. The cafe itself isn't very big, which again makes it more authentic! During peak hour, you may be asked to share a table with other people, which is something the locals don't mind. The wait wasn't too bad, we waited for about 15mins on a Sunday afternoon before getting a seat. 

Baked French Bread with Pork Chop & Fried Rice $24.80
Ummmmm so cheeeeesey... This was our first reaction when scooping into the bread, the melty cheese smelt so nice! The pork chop was covered in a light batter which made the meat super tender and juicy. The fried tomato rice had a hint of sweetness and sourness that balanced well with the pork and gave the dish extra depth. 

Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab in Chili & Garlic Style $24.80
A delightful snack for sure, only the size was massive which wasn't very snack like. The soft shell crab was super crunchy and meaty, so glad you can just eat the whole thing without the fiddly work! We also loved the garlic and chili flavoring. I have to admit, I am a soft shell crab fan 😎

Fried Rice Noodle with Beef with House Made Swiss Sauce $12.80
There are so many items on the menu, it is always hard to choose. We got this dish to try, and although it looks just like the typical Fried Rice Noodle with Beef which doesn't come with Swiss sauce, it is sweeter, and we actually prefer the traditional version.

Tofu Fa (Soya Bean Custard) $10

Tofu Fa is literally like tofu's cousin, they are made using the same ingredients, only Tofu Fa is a less dense version of tofu. It can be sweet or savory depending on the topping. HK Bing Sutt serves a sweet one with brown sugar and syrup. The soy bean flavour was quite noticeable, and the texture was even softer than panna cotta. Base on your own preference, you can add in the sugar and syrup accordingly. 

Yuanyang (Coffee Mixed with Milk Tea)-Cold $5.30
We initially wanted to get the Iced Milk Tea (served in a bottle), however it was sold out so we went with the Yuanyang instead. It turned out to be a good decision, the milk tea paired well with the espresso coffee, it had a nice coffee aroma as well as a creamy milk flavour. The sweetness was just right. 

Two happy piggies at the end of the meal, and yes we will be back for the dishes which we didn't get to try.
