Second Mon Kee Cafe offers Japanese style
A second Mon Kee Cafe will open at Taikoo Place on Monday, nine months after the original launched in Wan Chai.
Jointly managed by three owners, the eatery seats 32 diners. It has a “calm, warm” design unusual for Hong Kong, say the owners, who engaged a Japanese interior designer.
A feature is the use of special Japanese milk with 4.3 per cent fat content so eggs can be eaten safely even raw or semi-cooked.
The cafe offers its popular set of tomato soup with macaroni, scrambled egg and toast, with the soup simmered for more than four hours. Other dishes include curry rice with mixed Thai and Hong Kong spices.
Drinks include Irish coffee and Snow Coconut Crimson Bean Ice.
Meanwhile, the owners say they are considering expansion to Japan as their cafes offer recipes devised by their Japanese chef.
