Christina had just returned from her Europe trip (lucky girl), so our little trio decided to have dinner together! We started off at the corner of Broadway & MacDonald, waiting for Leon to get off work. Then, we drove down Broadway to look for a place to grab some food! It took us so long to decide on Red Robins… but it was closed down. Finally, we settled with Copa Cafe on Cambie St.

House Special Baked Pork Chop on Rice

I was craving something super satisfying and fully flavour-packed. That being so, I ordered the House Special Baked Pork Chop on Rice ($9.95).

This dish was massive! On a substratum of fried rice, a juicy pork chop laid, blanketed by a sizzling tomato-based sauce. With every bite, great flavour and texture compounded each other. As you might have assumed, I saved the dishwasher a lot of work ‘cos I cleaned the plate. I promise that you’ll fall into a deep, serene food coma after scarfing it all down!

Chicken Chow Mein

Christina ordered the Chicken Chow Mein, which was so mountainous that Christina had half of it packed up in a to-go box!  Because I already had a huge meal to finish myself, I decided not to try any of Christina’s food. Although, just by looking at it, the noodles look crunchy and nicely fried without being greasy.

Chicken Chow Mein Upclose

The only thing is that I wish there was more variety in vegetables. With that being said, this dish was very simplistic.

Portuguese Baked Chicken Steak on Rice

Before settling on the pork chop, I was actually contemplating about ordering the Portuguese Baked Chicken Steak on Rice ($8.95). Well, Leon ended up ordering this, so one of us got to enjoy it. It’s one of my absolute favourites at HK-style cafes!

Final Bytes

  1. Tasty food at affordable prices!
  2. Limited parking behind the restaurant!
  3. Open late for dinner, especially on Fridays and Saturdays!
