Cattle Cafe on Kingsway moved a few stores from their original location. They are a Hong Kong style cafe that has a comfortable fast-casual dining experience. The Kingsway location is their flagship store as they a few more items that their other locations.
Beware, it’s cash only, so make sure you go visit an ATM ahead of time.
The new location has more seats and better decor.
Ice Bath Milk Tea ( Add $2 with meal or $3.99) has been trending in Asia and has finally come to Vancouver. Having the milk tea in an ice bath keeps the milk tea from being diluted. When it arrived at the table, I wished they put more ice into the bowl as it barely did anything. It only covered the bottom bit.
Iced Milk Tea (add $1 with meal) is the version with ice in the drink. It was good too and you can’t tell too much of the difference between the two milk teas. If you aren’t hardcore about your milk tea, save a dollar and get this version.
Signature Noodle Combo ($9.79) lets you choose your Soup Base/ Sauce, toppings and type of noodle. As well as a drink. My friend chose the Malay Laksa Soup with beef brisket and fish tofu. It comes with 2 toppings, but you can choose to add more for $1.59 each.
Pork Chop in Cream Onion Bacon Demi-Glace with Rice ($10.59) was good as well. My friend loved the tenderness of the pork and it was very juicy. She was impressed since she has never seen pork so tender like this before.
Mixed meat and fish balls with flat noodle seaweed soup ($9.79) was comforting on a cold day. It was pretty good with the flat noodles. Super filling and I enjoyed the subtle taste of the seaweed soup.
Overall, the meal was quite decent and it’s priced well. The new restaurant is great and has more of a modern feel to it. The service is still pretty average as its hard to get a servers attention.
