ItaMoMo Cafe 意樂餐廳

My aunt took me to try ItaMoMo Cafe at Wong Tai Sin. It describes itself as a “Western Italian” restaurant, although I think that its offerings are more “generally Western” than “specifically Italian”. I would put ItaMoMo Cafe on the premium-economy pricing scale; it’s certainly not a low-cost HK-styled restaurant.

I ordered a Hong Kong-styled Milk Tea —it was a part of the lunch combination that I had. The milk tea tasted a tad bit sweeter than normal but overall it was okay.

In English, this dish is named Award-Winning Beef Brisket with Curry (HKD46). Unlike the curry in Canada, the curry is actually hot. The beef brisket was good in that the meat was lean. There was only one cube of potato, and I hoped for tastier vegetables on the side. The mushrooms was overly cooked but I guess the portion was just about right.

Everything including the beef brisket was just covered over a thick layer of curry sauce.

In English, this dish is named Portuguese Baked Chicken with Rice (HKD43). Unfortunately, ItaMoMo ran out of Portuguese sauce, so they used Italian white cream sauce instead. It was okay — nothing exciting. But hey, You’re in Wong Tai Sin! It’s not a very exciting part of Hong Kong in the first place!
