While planning for our Hong Kong trip, I made sure to search for kid-friendly cafes and was happy to have stumbled upon OMQ Dining Room in the course of my research. OMQ stands for Old Master Q, 老夫子 in Chinese.
I don’t know about you, but I sort of grew up reading 老夫子 comics when I was a kid. Instead of magazines, I would pore over 老夫子 comics at the hairdresser’s because I appreciated the light-hearted humour.
We took the MTR to Prince Edward and via Exit E, managed to easily locate OMQ Dining Room along Nathan Road. Had to climb a flight of stairs to the restaurant on the second floor.
As you can see, there is plenty of opportunities for photos even before you enter the restaurant.
This is actually a dining area! Yup complete with table and seater for four to six people. When we reached, it was already occupied by another family.
The hubs ordered a set meal and chose this fancy looking drink! Can’t remember what is it called but we were surprised when it was served. Wasn’t expecting the cotton candy!
Minestrone soup was tangy and appetite-whetting.
Very tender and juicy pork chop!
I think it was our first time trying fried pigeon and we loved it! There wasn’t much meat to begin with but its taste was quite rich and on the overall it was kinda fatty. Definitely must try!
Ardent fans of Old Master Q comics will be pleased to know that OMQ merchandise can be bought at the cafe!
