AAA Restaurant 麗記 recently opened in Richmond just a few doors down from Lido Restaurant 麗都餐廳. It took over the old space where Kam Ho 金豪麵家 used to be at 8053 Alexandra Road. Fans of Lido (me included) seem to be either happy for an alternative or made at the copy cat.
It is no doubt, the menu and decor suggests the two are quite similar. AAA replicas if you will. But you will probably understand once you understand that one of the chefs from Lido opened AAA. As for us, we are quite happy of the new roomier cafe with less line ups sans attitude.
Breakfast and Lunch combos is their specialty. Come before noon and enjoy a nice choice of breakfast items from congee, oatmeal, omelettes to soup noodles. After 12 noon, you can also choose from a plethora of rice dishes and sides like turnip cakes. Everything is good in my books!
Hot Horlick and Iced Milk Tea. The milk tea is rich and strong and no doubt will keep me up past 1am.
But before anything else, can we talk about this beauty of a pineapple bun? This BLB has a crunchy shell. It is slightly coated with a little bit more sugar than Lido. The bun is moist and served hot with a giant slab of cold butter. Some argue that the King of Pineapple Buns is still 金華冰廳 Kam Wah Cafe in Hong Kong. Frankly I don’t care much of Kam Wah and this AAA Pineapple Bun simply hits the spot!
Satay Beef Instant Noodles: Tenderized beef slices with a good satay broth.
Added to a combo is a dinner roll and ham and egg omelette.
Shredded Pork with Preserved Vegetables: One of my favorite comfort dish for any cold, rainy day.
Pan Fried Turnip Cake: a great side especially loaded with chili oil!
