Food: Eats on Call

Christmas is just around the corner and I am pretty sure that there will be many reunions and pot luck dinners with loved ones.  

Instead of preparing the food by yourself, why don’t you go easy on yourself this time and just order?  

Eats on Call is literally just a call away. This is a brainchild of 2 men who love to cook and serve good food.

All that’s in the menu are their specialty.  Tried and tested through time.  I have a lot of friends who could prove that these are yummy! 

Also, if you have any other food in mind, they could customize a menu for you.

Please like them on Facebook, Eats on Call.

Food Trip: Sham Shui Po Eats

Whenever we go to Sham Shui Po, it’s almost our tradition to have lunch at Dragon Centre first before we proceed with our shopping. 

Dragon Centre is a 9 storey shopping arcade which features a roller coaster inside the mall.  Sadly, the roller coaster is there for display only.  It has been closed since mid 2000s.

First in our food consumption today was lunch at Cafe Med.  Located at the 6th floor of the 9 storey Dragon Centre, this restaurant serves Western Cuisine.

I like its interior very much.  So cozy and relaxing.

Hubby ordered a pasta dish while I went for a baked one.  The cost of each dish is a little over 50 HKD or Php 300.00.  About normal pricing for a restaurant in Hong Kong.  Quality of food is good as most of HK’s restaurants.  Taste could be a little better.  If you want something to make you full and satisfied, you could try Cafe MED.

Next in our food list is dessert of course.  A sweet and crunchy dessert is what I was craving for so we went for this.

I am not sure what its name really is.  But I think I remember it being called Emperor’s Candy.  Peanuts in a chewy and sweet shell wrapped in white crunchy strands.  Priced at HKD 20.00 or Php 120.00, quite expensive but it’s a must try.

After dessert, my hubby and I parted ways.  I went to shop clothes while he looked at some gadgets and accessories. Yes, Sham Shui Po has it all.  It even has toys and some kids’ clothes.

After an hour, we met again and my sweet hubby brought me my favorite  KFC Egg Tart.

Almost like our Lord Stow’s in Manila.  This is priced at 7 HKD or Php42.00.

Continued our shopping and while on our way to the bus stop, we found ourselves in 1 block with a burger shop.  There were only Chinese characters so I don’t know what it’s called.  It is in front of a football field.

image

But it’s definitely like finding treasure in a lost cave.  The place is not your usual restaurant.  It only has enough equipment to cook and prepare the burgers.  No fancy packaging, no fancy interior or exterior.

Hubby ordered the Black Pepper Beef Burger.  It’s good but not anything special.  I ordered the Grilled Chicken Burger and I must say, it’s delicious.  Instead of a patty, they used real grilled chicken meat which was juicy and tasty.  You add their special Thousand Island Dressing and you’re really in for a treat.

Better than my favorite Grilled Chicken burger from McDonald’s.  And it will only set you back HKD 16.00 or around Php100.00.

So there, hope your tummies growl more because of these yummy food!

By the way, you can go to Sham Shui Po by taking the MTR.  It’s on the Kowloon Side.  Tourists usually stay on Hong Kong Side.  So you can take the train to Central Station and transfer to the Red Line to make it to Sham Shui Po.  It’s about 7 stations from Central.

You can take any exit and still be around shopping and food area!  Nearest exit to go to the Dragon Centre is Exit C1.

Cyma

For my daughter’s post 2nd birthday celebration, we went ahead to Cyma Greek Taverna at Eastwood City.  We called up to reserve our slot as we always do. That’s the first thing we do if we are to avail of a voucher!

We were a few minutes early and the place wasn’t packed yet, since we reserved an early dinner time slot.  The staff were all accommodating. They showed us our table and asked for the vouchers.  (One thing not to forget also! Bring the voucher!) We bought 2 vouchers. A voucher is good for 2 persons only. We were 4 plus my little princess.

We had a few pictures taken while waiting for our order. See how our little princess be all cute and ah, cuter!

Then some more pictures…

After sometime, the food finally arrived. First was the Soupa (soup) Mommy ordered (which I am sorry I forgot what it’s called).  It was a French Onion Soup, the taste was just right.

Next to come was the Orektika (appetizer), I ordered their Spinach and Artichoke Fondue, which turned out was a house specialty and really appetizing. Just like the soup, the saltiness was just right. You can actually taste the spinach. The melting cheese on top made it yummier! It was served with 3 slices of pita bread and 3 slices of toasted garlic bread, which actually made us full already!

Spinach and Artichoke Fondue

And here’s a picture of Daphne eating her pita bread.  She loved it.

Our family loves anything lamb. So we ordered 2 dishes of lamb meat. The first was a Souvlakia Souvlaki which was skewered lamb meat with vegetables.  More like the Kebabs of the Persians.  The skewered lamb meat was served with 3 full pita bread and garlic sauce. 

The other dish we ordered was another house specialty, it was the Paidakia. It was grilled lamb ribs served with potatoes.

Both lamb dishes were grilled to perfection I must say.  The true taste of the lamb came out very savoury.  I just squeezed some lemon juice over it and boom, yumminess! The lamb meat were also very tender.  

As much as I would like to try their Glyka (desserts), there’s no more room. That is why I would go back to Cyma again, maybe sooner than later, to try out the other specialty dishes and of course, their desserts. Rating? I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Cyma makes a very healty choice of a restaurant for me and my family! Good food, good service, good ambience – what else could we ask for?
