Set Lunch @ HK Kim Gary, Vivocity

Hot & Spicy Noodles with Pork Chop in "Typhoon Shelter"Style
Hot & Spicy Noodles with Pork Chop in “Typhoon Shelter” Style

One rainy afternoon, my colleagues and I popped over to HK Kim Gary Restaurant at VivoCity for lunch. We ordered a set lunch each at about $12. The noodles were springy and the spicy soup was pretty spicy as far as Hong Kong-inspired cuisine goes however, the “heat factor” is still nothing compared to the tongue-numbing spiciness of Sichuan food. I thought it was reasonably good for a Cha Chan Teng (a Hong Kong-style cafe that usually serves a wide variety of dishes) and was tastier than how I remembered the stock to be when I first tried noodles at this cafe. The pork chop cannot be seen in the picture as I had removed it from the soup and placed the soaked breaded pork chop onto a plate. I had just gotten my braces tightened that morning so gnawing on the tough pork chop was a challenge. I gave up after a while and had the noodles sans pork chop.

The fried wanton was crispy and the filling was unexceptional. Though it was just a little too brown for my liking, it was still acceptable as its redeeming factor was that the wanton skin was not soaked with oil.

Almond Milk @ Kim Gary
Hot Almond Milk Tea

I ended my lunch with a steaming hot cup of Almond Milk. It was a little sweeter than I remembered and the almond flavour was not as strong as before. Thankfully, it didn’t have the annoying  excessively-powdery and sandy feel of almond milk served in some places so overall, it was a pretty decent version though it is no longer worth going through too much trouble for.
