Qoo Cafe is located in the Marpole area. They are an Asian fusion restaurant featuring HK Style favourites, an assortment of Asian dishes, Western selections, pastas, sandwiches, noodle soups, and bubble tea. I was invited by ChineseBites to try a few things off their menu.
The space is large and can fit up to 90 people. It’s been here for a while now, but haven’t been here until now.
M and I went with the classic drink – coffee and tea mix and the HK style milk tea.
Mango Slush with Pearls is what the others ordered.
Goose Liver Toast and Truffle Mushroom Toast was surprisingly good. I love how they toasted the bread and it has no crust! The truffle mushroom was a lot better than the goose liver version.
Baked Mussels with pesto sauce comes with 8 pieces. Juicy and not over cooked.
Lobster with rice cakes is surrounded by a decorative cucumber barrier.
They have their mix and match special where you can choose 2 types of protein from the menu, soup of the day and a hot beverage for $14.95 during dinner.
You can choose from:
- Pan fried chicken steak
- Pan fried pork chop
- Basa fillet
- Pork Chop fillet
- Baked salmon fillet
- Wiener sausage
- Spicy chicken skewer
- Deep fried chicken wings
- Pan fried cod fish fillet
- Grilled ox tongue
- Shrimp skewer
- Honey beef short ribs ($3 extra)
- Rack of lamb ($6 extra)
- Baked lobster ($7 extra)
- Charbroiled New York steak ($5 extra)
They gave us a platter full of the proteins to try. Most of them were pretty average, but the rack of lamb and New York steak were tender and medium rare. Of course, you have to add a bit of money for those options. If I didn’t want to add money to the set, I would get the pan-fried pork chop and the pan-fried chicken steak.
The sets also include either rice, spaghetti, french fries, or mashed potatoes. Mixed veggies, you have to add an additional $2.
To accompany the meats, you can choose from black pepper gravy, red wine gravy, onion gravy, garlic gravy, mushroom gravy or butter cream.
We got the Yeung Chow Fried Rice to end the meal. It is a wok fried dish with ingredients like pork, shrimp, scallions, veggies and eggs.
Overall, they are definitely more expensive than the average HK Style Cafe.
