Xin Wang Hong Kong Café – Supper Till Wee Hours of 4am

Xin Wang Hong Kong Café – Supper Till Wee Hours of 4am
by

Suppers are evil. They help you put on those extra pounds, and eye bags when you need that additional sleep. But suppers are also some of the most enjoyable moments of friendships. During our growing up years, I am sure you can remember those class outings where we hang out with our friends till the wee hours of the morning.

Sometimes we just do not know where to go to eat other than the 24 hour fastfood and prata shops. The good news is 13 out of 16 Xin Wang Hong Kong Café are operating till 4am daily, best if you are hungry after a midnight movie or KTV session.

One of the characteristics of Hong Kong café is that they sell almost everything. Well, almost. More than 200 items to be more exact.

What’s your favourite item at Xin Wang?

Some of mine are the rather Singapore style Chicken Cutlet Dry Curry Ramen ($9.50), healthy tasting Pork Chop and Egg Papaya Soup Bee Hoon ($9.50), hearty Pork Chop and Fries ($8.80), and their super crowd pleaser Mango Snow Ice ($6.90). Not forgetting the Ice HK Milk Tea ($3.20) which has always been their signature best-selling drink.

Their HK Steamed Chicken Sausage and Mushroom Bamboo Rice ($7.80) is better than I expected – tasty, moist and fragrant. I love it where there are generous portions of sausage and mushroom, and the rice is suitably warm and well-covered with sauce.

I never once thought of ordering deep fried chicken at a Hong Kong café. If I really needed some, I would have went to the other restaurants starting with K, P or T yah? Their Chicken In A Basket (3 for $8.80) is dry and crisp on its outer layer and surprisingly tender on the inside, with the plus point of not being overly oily. I actually ordered it again!

What I like about Hong Kong café menus is that they dare to be experimental, and adding twists to otherwise ‘cheap’ food. Their Dry Noodles with Chye Poh Omelette and Chicken Floss feels like a combination of my mother’s cooking and the usual fried instant noodles – but it somehow works. Though I must say this dish may not be consistent throughout different branches.

I must say that I am not encouraging people to stay out late (especially when I am a teacher). But we all know there are times we would just want to indulge in dining and chit chatting with friends (Here’s a pic of me and foodie pals Miss Tam Chiak and CalvinTimo – taken at 1am!). Some of my best uni memories are supper times where we would search Singapore just to look for a place that is opened. At least you now know where to go and what to eat.
