Asia Pacific Catering, which runs a group of restaurants called Café de Coral, also runs a business in HKUST. I'll review a few breakfast items jere. Well, to be honest, there wasn't anything to rave about the food served for breakfast, but rest assured, the main menu displays a wide range of mouth-watering food. So yeah, I'm looking forward to write the next review while reminiscing on those days!
Breakfast Set 1 HK$13.50 (~S$2.25)
One of the breakfast set includes a bowl of congee and a plate of fried vermicelli. Beverage is not included in this particular set.
Pork, Dried Oysters and Salted Eggs Congee (Set Menu)
The thick, warm congee was delectable enough to start the day. There were more minced pork than chunks of salted eggs and dried oysters.
Fried Vermicelli (Set Menu)
The fried vermicelli, sans meat, was so-so. Cookd with cabbages, it was enough to fill my stomach. Well, at least it wasn't too dry to swallow.
Breakfast Set 2 HK$19.50 (~S$3.25)
Another breakfast set that I tried includes a NZ Hoki fish fillet, a toast with butter, scrambled eggs and a glass of milk tea. Of course, you can't take milk tea out of HK!
Platter (Set Menu)
NZ Hoki Fish Fillet - Taste: 7.5/10
Scrambled Eggs - Taste: 5.5/10
Thick Toast with Butter - Taste: 7.5/10
The fish fillet was pretty crispy on the outside and acceptably moist inside, made enjoyable with the thick mayonnaise given on the side. Actually, it didn't taste very different from what I always have here in Singapore, although the former was slightly tastier (or maybe it's just me; I'm sure you can understand the feeling of an exchange student haha!). The scrambled eggs didn't really do for me, for I prefer those fluffy, non-overcooked version. They weren't that milky either. On the other hand, the thick toast was crispy without being overly so, and it was pretty airy.
Milk Tea (Set Menu)
Without doubt, the best item was the milk tea which was pretty rich with the taste of the tea intact, but of course it wasn't as good as the one I had in Capital Café. Pika's advice: White and brown sugar sachets are available for those who love your tea sweet!
Taste: 7/10Ambience: 6.5/10
Okay, I'm not exactly sure about the breakfast hours, but perhaps they serve the breakfast items till 10am. Wow, I just found out myself that the menu given in the link below has just been updated.
