Savoring Hong Kong Favorites at Honolulu HK Cafe in SM Aura Premiere

Hong Kong holds a special place in my heart. I love how they were able to preserve their culture amidst modernity. Of course, this is also true with their dishes- they have the best and unassuming traditional dimsum versus the artisinal ones.

And to satisfy that craving for authentic Hong Kong noms, Honolulu HK Cafe comes to the rescue.


The food choices at Honolulu HK Cafe is an interesting mix of noodles, rice meals, pork chops and more.


Deep Fried Honey Garlic Spareribs 

The sweetness of the honey was balanced out by the garlic which was complimented by the texture from it being deep-fried, easily making it a favorite.


Deep Fried Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk

This was another favorite. The salted egg yolk flavor made it light and easy to pair with the other dishes or even have it on its own.


Steamed Rice with Chinese Sausage and Wine-Dried Meat in Casserole

Each bite of it made you want to have another. The wine-dried meat explodes in your mouth as the sweetness of the Chinese sausage balances it out.


Baked Spaghetti with Minced Beef Bolognaise

It was a surprise to feel the creaminess of the dish underneath the clearly baked portion of it. Additionally, it was a treat to find pieces of meat to go with the spaghetti.


Curry Fish Ball

The serving portion of 10 pieces per order made it really good for sharing! Also, if you enjoyed the curry sauce, you can add it to your order with rice.



Iced Red Bean with Milk

Insider tip: you should mix it well before having a sip. The naturally sweet red bean goes well with the milk. It's a healthy alternative to the usual boba fix which goes well with your meal.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
