Around my fourth day in Toronto, I got a bit sick of congee houses. Luckily also on the fourth day, my grandpa was out with his friends so my grandma, my aunt and I could finally go to a restaurant that wasn’t strictly Chinese. My grandma still needed Chinese food though, so we went to a Hong Kong style cafe that serves everything and not only dim sum and congee. Apparently there is always a line up at Blue Ocean Cafe but since my aunt knew the owner of Blue Ocean Cafe, we quickly got a sofa seat next to the window.
Since all of our orders came with a drink, I went with the usual milk tea. I found their milk tea thicker than the milk tea at Tsui Wah, Hong Kong.
Since all of us didn’t feel like eating too much for lunch, we shared a Malaysian Penang Fried Rice Noodles (Kwai Tew) (CAD8.5). The dish wasn’t too oily and the noodles were soft. Compared to a Kwai Tew I’ve had in Malaysia, this needed more taste and I would prefer if it was more moist.
On the side, we also shared a bowl of Japanese Hokkaido Ramen with Stew Pork Soft Ribs (CAD8.99). This ramen was much better than the one I had at Kawawa Ramen in Metrotown. Then again, Kawawa Ramen was the worst ramen place I’ve ever been to. The soup was delicious with a pork bone taste and the noodles did not taste like the ones from the supermarkets. The pork soft ribs were huge and it took us a while to finish them.
