Mr J, The Professor, Mr Harvest-the-Crops and I got out of the CBD for lunch to Vivocity. It's always a treat to get out of the office area, there's a relaxed air to it that makes us all happy. Hong Kong Kim Gary is apparently The Professor's "Happy Place", and it's easy to see why. The food is in the style of Hongkong's "cha chan tengs", serving east-west "fast-food", with a bustling atmosphere and quick efficient service. While I personally don't fancy such "fast-food", to have it once a while is fine by me.
The Mix Curry BK Rice ($11.90) was devilishly indulgent, with grilled chicken and pork cutlets, ham, hotdogs all slathered generously with cheese and baked till a golden brown. A few fried potatoes, one lonely broccoli floret and hard boiled egg completed the artery-clogging dish.
The A-Mix Set Meal ($10.90) wasn't much different, with grilled chicken steak, pork chop, sunny-side egg, ham, hotdog, accompanying pepper spaghetti and boiled veggies. Don't worry, the egg does come with its yolk, it was just that Mr J had gobbled up the yolk before I had a chance to take a picture of his dish.
We shared the Dai Pai Dong Curry Fishballs ($4.90), which is basically fried fish balls with sweetish spicy sambal. Nice.
