HK-style breakfast @ Tak Kee Lee
$5.25 gets you 2 meat options, a side, a noodle base, toast, and a drink.
I opted for bacon, satay beef, and a fried egg over ramen plus a cup of their amazing HK milk tea.
The broth was nice and flavorful - not like my bouillon cube concoction at home :)
Trying not to cry over spilt milk (tea) - I savor every drop.
South Bay: Cafe Tam in Cupertino
Crab & Corn Soup
A big creamy bowl of soup enough for 2-3 people.
Baked Cod in Cream Sauce over Spaghetti
My favorite! Tons of carbs, but oh well.
Hubby's #1 Special Dai Gou Dai
Baked rice with half tomato sauce and half cream sauce layered with a pork chop, chicken wing, and egg.
Complimentary coconut sago dessert
I love this place! Friendly service, great food, and massive portions.
More Baked Cod over Spaghetti + HK Milk Tea at Koi Palace Express
This is definitely the place to go if you're in the East Bay. The food is city-quality and burb-convenient - Koi is more expensive than most though.
Baked Pork Chop over Spaghetti @ Snowflake
This one was quite pretty, but not as tasty as the others.
I heart Yelp and rely heavily upon it, but sometimes the star ratings really throw me off. I don't know if I'm naive or jaded, but I don't expect good service in most Asian eateries. I find that many focus on food / efficiency rather than grinning hospitality and they get reamed on Yelp for it. Case in point, Koi had meh ratings, but the food is very good (and they've always been friendly when we've gone).
Speaking of tea, I also found some goodies this weekend:
Milk Tea & Green Tea Chocolates
Whoops on not orienting this prior to uploading - sorry!
Fresh Milk Tea Cream Puffs @ Beard Papa's
Dark Brick Milk Tea @ Cafe Verde
And finally, the trees are blossoming here: so pretty!
So yeah, I heart SF and I never want to leave! :)
