    Cafe' De Coral: main fast food chain of Hong Kong

    see my video on eating in a Cafe' De Coral.

    Cafe' De Coral is Hong Kong's biggest and largest Chinese Fast Restaurant Chain (it is not a typical fast food chain but a fast, full service restaurant chain that offers lots of menu items!)

    Café de Coral is the largest a fast restaurant franchise based in Hong Kong and it also operates the Manchu Wok chain in North America and Oliver's Famous Sandwiches in South East Asia. The chain is one of the largest and most common fast food chains in Hong Kong with more than 120 restaurants and still is growing. It was established in 1968 and today caters to about 300,000 people on an average day.

    The food is typically Chinese with some Western dishes. The restaurant only offers breakfast during the morning (lunch during the noon hours, tea time meals in the afternoon) and as the day progress, its menu changes to reflect the appropriate meals being sold at that given time of the day. In another words, one is not able to order breakfast meals during dinner time. over 100 items is on the menu list on any one day, and are regularly rotated to maintain variety of choices. Standard menus range from western cuisine to traditional Chinese dishes and they have occasional new products and seasonal products that they offer regularly.

    this Branch is at 3rd Level of Grand Century Plaza

    opens from 08:00 am to 10:00 pm. everyday

    Favorite Dish: Average price is from 25 hkd for noodles, 30-40 for rice dishes, 50-70 for sizzling plate and 60-80 for hot pot!

    my favorite items here are the Hainan Chicken with Seasoned Rice at 35 HKD an order and the Pork Roast with rice at HKD 40 an order.

    among the menu items here are: Pineapple Bun with Butter and BBQ Pork Bun along with more adventurous goodies like Fried Rice Noodle Roll with Spicy Pork Cubes, Japanese Style Fish & Beancurd Patties, Pork Loin with Apple and Cabbage Roll with Chicken, omelet, beef steak, chicken steak or fish fillet cutlet with rice vermicelli, shell pasta, instant noodles or dew-drop noodles, chicken in glutinous rice, Hot and silky smooth Pork and Preserved Egg Congee, Dried Fish Peanuts & Pork Congee or Sweet Corn & Mushrooms Congee, Fried Vermicelli, yummy Fried Noodles in Soy Sauce, Fried Turnip Pudding, hot pot, sizzling plate ande a lot more!

    Cafe de Corral: Fantastic quick and cheap local cuisine

    by lindyz Written Nov 1, 2011

    We came across this restaurant at Harbour City and then saw a few more of them around Hong Kong. Id say its kinda like their local version of maybe Pizza Hut or something like that. They were always busy, usually with locals but with some foreigners as well. The ordering system was quick, menu choices were various and prices were very cheap. So I would highly recommend eating here in Hong Kong.

    Favorite Dish: Frank had Pork chop, rice, vegies and a coke and I had Chicken, eggplant and vermicelli and a coke and total cost was only $76HK which is about $10AUD so for $5 we got a great meal with a drink!

    Fantastic place to eat, quick, cheap and yummy! Franks pork chop, rice and vegies My vermicelli, chicken and eggplant Nice decor in the restaurant too

    Cafe de Coral: Don't miss BBQ stuff

    by Jimbo222 Written May 4, 2010

    Cafe de Coral is like HK's fastfood. Food are many of the popular dishes in HK. Aside from this, it is very affordable and food you pay for is definitely worth it.

    Favorite Dish: I love the Baked Porkchop, or anything baked.
    I also loved Roast duck rice.

    This fast food chain has more than a hundred branches throughout Hong Kong. Food served from 7am to almost mid-night with many choices. All menus are written in Chinese and English. They even have two branches at the airport.

  • Cafe de Coral: Chain fast food place

    by NoFuture Updated Aug 15, 2004

    The food is cheap and cheerful. It tastes ok and won't make you ill. It's mostly western food with some eastern things too (I think). It's like any other fast food outlet, maybe a little nice than Mc Donald's. It's known as "dai ga lok/lop" in Cantonese.

    Favorite Dish: Mon-gwar-bing (Icy mango slush/smoothie with jelly balls)...mmmmm....

    I love these drinks, they're popular in HK and safe to drink normally, but if you have one from Cafe de Coral (yes this is the right spelling) you'll be more certain of it's hygeine. Though I must say I never got sick eating/drinking from street sellers...

    Cafe de Coral: HK's Largest Chinese Fast Food Chain

    by coolpanda87 Updated Jan 31, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe de Coral is one of Hong Kong's most popular fast food establishments, surpassing Macdonalds & KFC in terms of quality, healthiness & choice. The food is inexpensive, & most of the time you could get a really good meal.

    Many times they also has many special promotions, including once where they worked together with the MTR. That time, 10 MTR rides in one week allowed you to trade in for a free coupon (worth around $20-30 HKD). They always bring out new promotions, so if you're interested, look for them....

    Cafe de Coral was established in 1968 & has over 100 outlets in Hong Kong. Their motto is " Achieving A Hundred Points of Excellence," & they have won awards for customer satisfaction. Cafe De Coral is a multinational company that has operations throughout Asia, Europe & North America, including 'Manchu Wok'.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dishes would have to be their baked rice with pork & eggs, cheese baked shrimp, steak, hot pot & shark fin.

    Generally I would go there for lunch, however there is more variety for dinner & the prices are cheapest at breakfast time & tea time.

    Cafe de Corral: Chinese fast food

    by VTShounen Updated Sep 12, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe de Corral (unsure of spelling, but it's the ubiquitous Chinese fast food resataurant with the yellow sign and red writing). [Chinese: ‘å‰ÆžÙ] Pronounced 'dai GAH lok' (like 'Die Garlock').
    Alright, fond childhood memories prompt me to put this here. This is Hong Kong style fast food at its best. Go up to the big-ass-menu-on-the-wall by the cashiers. If you can't read Chinese then you'll have to go even closer, because the English is in very small font. Cashiers tend not to be fluent in English, so if you don't speak then point directly to the item on the wal, or if need be (and I've seen this done before!), remove the item from the wall and show the cashier. Get the receipt and give it to the person behind the food counter and simply wait for your simple, yet fast, cheap and delish meal. Limited seating during meal times though, as it is popular with families.
