Boyfriend and I had just finished watching a movie in Popcorn (I always laugh at the name of this shopping center) and this was right next to the theater. Beans is originally from Tsuen Wan and I've tried it a few times before when I was in the area so I was surprised they opened a branch here. We decided to eat here for dinner.The Beans branch in Tsueng Kwan O is more spacious than the Tsuen Wan branch. There a lot more seating and a number of large communal tables.

The Beans branch in Tsueng Kwan O is more spacious than the Tsuen Wan branch. There a lot more seating and a number of large communal tables. Menu seemed to be the same as the Tsuen Wan branch and is English and Chinese.
Deluxe Full English Breakfast ($98). I heard many good things about their English breakfast so I ordered this. This included two breakfast sausages, scrambled eggs, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, baked beans, a bit of salad, half a roasted tomato, a slice of smoked salmon and their signature donut style waffle. The sausages tasted quite good, though the bacon is not crispy. Not a fault of the restaurant as every single restaurant in Hong Kong seems to not understand that bacon needs to be fried to crispiness and not this limp style. The mushrooms could have done with a bit more seasoning. The eggs were fluffy and I did like the roasted tomato. Salad didn't have enough salad dressing. I think it wasn't dressed at all? I cannot really complain about baked beans and smoked salmon as these are never home made but from a package. The most disappointing was the waffle. It looked cute, like a little donut. But it was super SUPER dry. There was some whipped cream to go with it but it seemed to not help much. Pumpkin and Grilled Chicken Papparadelle ($98). I noticed this was new item and since papparadelle is one of my favorite types of pasta, not to mention a rare find in Hong Kong, we ordered this. This was disappointing. The sauce didn't really taste like pumpkin but more like cream of chicken. It seemed they used a chicken broth and completely over powered the taste of pumpkin. The pasta was over cooked as it's defintely not an easy pasta to cook. That I can understand as it's the same level of cooking difficulty as angel hair pasta and tagliatelle (two other pasta types that many restaurants in Hong Kong fail miserably). At least the chicken was moist and not dry. Just like the Tsuen Wan branch, meals come with a drink choice of either honey with lemon tea, ginger tea with brown sugar or regular coffee. Boyfriend chose a honey with lemon tea as he felt he was coming down with something. Vanilla Latte ($27). I ordered a vanilla latte. When ordering, I noticed this place could request 3D latte art with no extra charge! This was different than the Tsuen Wan branch. Of course, I had to get that! Though the latte didn't have a strong enough shot of vanilla, the cute little cat bobbing on top of my coffee made up for it. It was so cute, I almost couldn't drink it.
