Restaurant review: Hoko Farm in Wan Chai – filling fusion fare at a fair price
Creamy Hokkaido milk is the main attraction in this East meets West mash-up
With cartoon cow graffiti adorning the walls, Hoko Farm’s trademark dish is scrambled eggs made with Hokkaido’s famous creamy milk. The style of the cuisine is a mixture of Hong Kong, Japanese and Western styles.
We like the Hong-Kong-style macaroni with raw beef in house-made tomato and vegetable soup (HK$48), which has fresh-tasting meat and a chunky broth.
Other dishes popular with Hongkongers are pork cutlet and dried egg instant noodles (HK$45) and barbecue pork rice (HK$48).
For Western-style dishes, we like the all-day breakfast (HK$65) with sausage, bacon, baked beans and toast. The scrambled egg is made with creamy 3.6 Hokkaido milk and black truffle for a rich taste.
The minced beef bake with macaroni (HK$58) has a cheesy taste and a sauce with a strong tomato flavour.
The pasta with wild mushroom sauce (HK$62) is a let-down, with too much pasta and not enough mushrooms in the sauce.
Of the yoshoku (Japanese-style Western) dishes available, we enjoyed the Japanese black curry beefburger with cheddar and mozzarella (HK$58). The burger is topped with Hokkaido milk scrambled egg, which makes for a very filling dish.
