What used to be a dilapidated furniture
store on the corner of BoAi and MingCheng Roads just
a couple of months ago has now blossomed into a lively
and elegant restaurant. The Predestination Hong Kong
Tea Restaurant is large and busy but paradoxically has
a very gentle, flowing feel to it. Inside there is a
large wall fountain with water running down the full
height of two-stories and bamboo trees, reaching up
to the second floor, are misted along the walls by sprinklers.
The ambience alone could make for a pleasant evening.
However, the service here is fast and friendly and the
food is tasty and colorful. Although their menu is large
I had to follow old habits and try the two things I
always order in a Cantonese restaurant: the Pineapple
Shrimp, a.k.a. Salad Shrimp (NT$320) and the Steamed
Pork Bun (NT$60). Both of these dishes met my standards.
Predestination Hong Kong Tea Restaurant is well-worth
a try for dinner with friends or just as a place to
stop for a leisurely lunch.
