Cafe Mi is one of the more established Hong Kong Cha Chaan Teng in Brisbane, it is situated in the corner of Sunnybank Plaza, next to the cinemas, which is why I always forget it's there.
We arrived just before twelve last Saturday and were given a seat at the end of the restaurant.
The menu was very extensive, and there was an additional picture menu of the more popular dishes.
My companion and I both ordered Hong Kong style drinks, consisting of a milk tea, and a coffee with milk tea. Like all Hong Kong style drinks, they were quite strong, and in keeping with tradition served with condensed milk as opposed to fresh milk to make it all the more creamy, and to counter the super strong tea and coffee.
We enjoyed them immensely, and it was quite a kick start to our morning.
My companion ordered the Sizzling Black Pepper Steak with Crispy Egg Noodle. It was more like beef strips than steak. My companion was a little disappointed at the serving size which was a bit small. Nevertheless, the beef was very tender, and the sauce was spicy with its strong peppery taste, which made it quite delicious. The noodles were very crispy but unfortunately not freshly fried, he softened them up in the sauce before he ate them.
I ordered the Twin Bowl Deluxe, which consisted of crumbed pork cutlet udon, and unagi rice. As usual, I asked for the pork to be served separate from the noodles to ensure that it isnt soggy. This was done without complication, which is always appreciated. The noodles were warm and nourishing, and the cabbage was soaked in the delicious soup. The unagi was tender and soft, but there was insufficient sauce for the amount of rice provided. Additionally, I would definitely have preferred short grain rice to the long grain that was provided.
