Tsuen Wan is a very familiar place to me since I’ve spent 7 years of secondary school life there, it is a place full of reminiscences of my school days. My school is literally no more than 150m from the shop that I had my lunch this afternoon.
The shop bears a lengthy name 台灣小倆口三明治專賣店，it was around lunch time and at the time I arrived it had already been quite busy inside. There are altogether 4 staffs taking care of the shop, 3 wearing green uniforms working in the kitchen and as cashier, and 1 old woman serves the foods to 3 very small tables here and there inside the shop, 2 small tables are even placed outside the shop. I was very lucky indeed getting a seat inside with comfortable air conditioning, although sharing the table with a stranger.

I ordered a cup of 凍特調咖啡($7), 肉松蛋餅($15), 總裁牛肉蛋堡($26), the coffee is half-priced with purchase of $10 or more. The coffee came after about 8 minutes and an additional 7 minutes for the foods to come. They are all very nice and polite peoples, they won’t forget to smile when they talk to customers even in such rush hour of their business, so I won’t complain anything about their service.
Yummy, but too small a cup!
The first mouthful of coffee was unforgettable, the fragrant was so compelling, together with the right amount of milk the overall texture was so thick and silky, first rate item! Unfortunately, the 2 late comers really disappointed me! The egg cake was alright with the egg wrapping but the pork fiber inside was really too sweet, I would indeed put it into the dessert category to be served after the main course if it were a western restaurant! The beef burger with fried egg was no better, the beef was a few millimeters thicker than what you could find in McDonald’s Big Mac but it definitely taste no better, worse still, the tomato relish in the burger was again too much sweetened. I think I am more on the side of a purist when it comes to food’s original taste, if one could sweeten tomato dressing to such a horrendous extent why didn’t they just put in some honey in place of the tomato in the first place?
It’s quite a nightmare and peculiar feeling for anyone to have an "All Desserts" lunch set, and above all it’s of no good to anybody’s health!
Ironically the half-priced coffee is the best of the three I've tried that day.
Until they are willing to spend less on sugar, for the sake of health I won't visit any more.
