G/F, Highland Mansion, 8 Cleveland Street, Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong (Next to i.t fashion store)
G/F, 2 Sun Wui Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
Mon to Sun. 8am - 11pm
Seldom visit local restaurant, but old Hongkong-sytly cafe is always the attraction to me, and I never get boring to try new ones. MATCH BOX, based in Causeway Bay (CWB), two branches locates in non-crowded area, features the old-style cafe decoration and menu. Even not a local Hongkonger, I also found some similar childhood memory there, but quite sure it's the popular little tricks enjoyed by older generation. I love the old but stylish windows of the restaurant, bring you go through the time tunnel to enjoy a stylish Hongkonger's dinner at that time. Menu follows normal traditional Cantonese restaurant/cafe's but with new inputs, which are all highlighted as famous/must-try items. Price is, undoubtedly, higher than local ones, but to pay for a old stylish dining experience, acceptable and reasonable.
OVALTINE & HORLICK
It's interesting coz I didnt get the solid idea when looking into the drink menu, but I would like to try, and the result is nice! It's a mixed hot sweet drink with Ovaltine and Horlick, decorated with a big marshmallow. It's not too sweet but you can taste both brands in the same sip.
特餐（全日供應）：香蕉克戟 & 雞批浮臺（青豆茸湯）& 咖啡或茶
SPECIAL SET (ALL DAY SERVED): BANANA PANCAKE & CHICKEN PIE WITH GREEN BEAN CREAM SOUP & COFFEE OR TEA
Compared to other dishes, this special set is really in a competitive price! The big potion can be shared by two, and with a balance taste of savory one & sweet dish. Chicken pie is traditional local pastry, with butter-rich layers and chicken & beans as fillings. With green bean cream soup, which is not-too-creamy. It adds new concept to the dish, beautiful looking & good pairing of soup and pie. Worth to try! The banana pancake with syrup, condensed milk, walnut and caramel sauce is good. The fluffy pancake is like the sponge, absorbing the syrup, condense milk and caramel sauce; decorated with banana slides and walnut, it's not only yummy dessert but also rich meal.
PANCAKE WITH PINEAPPLE, HAM, HONEY SYRUP & BBQ SAUCE
It's a interesting result from the 'lab'; just imagine to mix all impossible into possible. Top layer is fresh sunny egg, love the liquid-texture yolk for sure. 2nd layer, cheddar cheese, it's normal product, but everyone likes it right?! 3rd layer, grilled pineapple, big and thick slice, juicy and sweet not only of its original taste but the syrup. 4th layer, ham, it's different from the normal one, tastes more meaty and 'authentic'. Last one, fluffy pancake sipped in the BBQ sauce, salty in large, BBQ sweet in little.
BLACK & WHITE TOAST (BLACK SESAME AND CONDENSED MILK SAUCE)
Crispy and fluffy toast with condense milk is not unfamiliar to most of Hongkongers. How about adding extra paste of black sesame sauce with a 'cute' name? I don't know why when I encounter "黑白多士", the word 'Knight' just popped up in my brain :P
It's rich in mouth with doubled sweetness.
CHEESE BURGER WITH FRIED EGGS
This dish is recommended by one of my blogger friends (HK Epicurus) and his comment is 'good deal'. I shall give a higher comment then, for it's fluffy bread, well-done fried eggs, lovely cheese and rich salad sauce, plus the main role - minced beef, typical Hongkong-style hamburger, but with a presentation and potion closer to the 'real' burger. My friends quite like the sweet-taste minced beef, I guess they made it with some BBQ sauce or other sweet ingredients; while to me, I'm not used to the over-soft texture of meat (beef/pork/lamp), which to me, stands for 'fake', that's why I don't like Mincing LOL.
OLD-STYLE FRIED CHICKEN LEG WITH FRUIT SALAD
OK, we have big stomach, last dish is quite Hongkonger afternoon tea style (luckily we choose fruit salad instead of fried rice as side dish). Chicken leg is deep fried, quite good quality with less oil and crispy chicken skin. It's just my style. The fruit salad is not too creamy and not with too much water, taste fresh cool.
For sure, I'll go for MATCH BOX again to explore and experience their other dishes soon!
