Mido Cafe 美都餐室

For those of you who fancy a REAL taste of the good old Hong Kong fashion type of food & ambience, I suggest that you HAVE to visit the more-than-half-a-century old Mido Cafe at least once during yr HK trip! I’m not kidding! 🙂

This cafe was recommended by a fren who has been to HK several times. It is located at 63 Temple Street Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, Tel: (+852) 2384-6402. The nearest MTR is Yau Ma Tei 油麻地 and it’s just abt 5 mins walk away from exit C, at the end of Temple St (庙街). It is open from 8.30 am to 10 pm.

We reached there close to 10am and luckily it was not crowded oredi. The cafe had a very nostalgic feel around it, like those traditional ones we see in HK dramas. They also had several pictures/ newspaper cuttings on the walls showing recommended food reviews of the cafe, & tourists from many parts of the world (there was 1 from SIN too, but I forgot exactly who was in the pic).

Really traditional & nostalgic decor

We ordered the famous pork ribs baked rice (焗排骨饭), 2 cups of 鸳鸯 (coffee mixed wif tea) & 1 ‘pineapple bun’ 菠萝包 altogether. At 1st glance, one wouldn’t have known tat the pork ribs baked rice would look like tat as shown in the pic. The pork ribs were crispy & juicy, & the sauce for the baked rice was unique yet tasty.  It din look like a huge serving but it was just nice for the 2 of us. The ‘pineapple bun’ din have pineapples in it but rather it’s jus a name they call hehe. One muz eat it while it’s still warm, tat’ll b shiok! (“,)

The bill came to a total of HK$80 (abt S$15). Quite a reasonable price for HK standards I muz say. We were both full & satisfied aft this sumptuous breakfast. I would def return to this cafe for my next HK visit ^^
