Kowloon Cafe City, Melbourne CBD

MELBOURNE | Kowloon Cafe City is the CBD location of Glen Waverley cha chaan teng (Hong Hong style cafe), Kowloon Cafe. I recently popped in for What’s On Melbourne to scope it out in advance of Lunar New Year.

Cha chaan tengs developed post World War Two in Hong Kong, influenced by British culture, as a way for everyday people to enjoy Western cuisine. The food on offer is uniquely Hong Kong – eclectic, affordable diner food combining Cantonese and Western flavours and influences.

The menu at Kowloon Cafe City is extensive, and features all of the classics. Things like pineapple/bolo buns, egg and ham sandwiches on white bread, instant noodle and macaroni soups, and barbecue and fried meats on rice.

There’s a whole lot of set meals, and drinks like Hong Kong style milk tea and coffee, Horlicks, and lemon with Ribena.

There’s a lot on the menu that’ll sound instantly appealing to you; and a lot that you’ll be scratching your head about with uncertainty. Be sure to order some things from both categories for a delicious experience that’s different from your usual ‘Melbourne’ cafe.
