Came to Hao Wei Dao for lunch today. The RM1/fried rice promotion was still valid. But I had to give it a pass because I don’t really have any appetite today.

Fortunately, today’s honey sea coconut wasn’t too sweet, it was just right. Bacon aglio olio spaghetti was spicy indeed, but it tasted like how it was the first time I had it. Talks about good consistency. Bacon salad wasn’t too bad, though the bacon could’ve been better. I wanted to order the omelette but I was afraid it doesn’t last, like the first time I had, as I was quite hungry already. There was a funny item called the vegetarian omelette. I wonder how could it be vegetarian when it’s an omelette.

I had a pretty good impression the previous time I came here. Before I realized it, I’m here again for lunch. This time, I hope I could eat something heavier, because the last time, my stomach started growling when it was just 2 hours after my meal here.

I liked how they serves aglio olio pasta with bacon, but it was way toooooooo salty. If they’d just skip the salt and let the bacon does its job, that plate of pasta would be perfect, aside from the rather harder than usual texture. The bacon strips looked different from what I used to had though. perhaps saute would be better in preparing those bacon. As for the drink though, it was way toooooooo sweet. Perhaps I’ll remind them to go lighter on the sugar and salt.

This restaurant has been in running in NZX for quite some time already. But I’ve only noticed it about 2 months back when taking a walk in NZX. I’ve wanted to give this place a try but I can’t seem to find the right time. Finally, I came to this place today with my colleague.


… honey sea coconut drink, RM2.50.


… clam soup with lots of lots of claims in it, only for RM7.90. Choices of spicy or non-spicy. I could see 2 jalapeños on top of the soup for spicing up the flavour. Yummy!


… my colleague’s mushroom soup, RM7.90. Smooth and milky.


… I was eager to try out their garlic bread. 5 piece for RM3.20.


… finally, a bacon omelette. This would be our main course.

The drink was nice for its price, with plenty of sea coconut. Garlic bread was mediocre, I couldn’t done better garlic breads. The soups were excellent. My colleague loved her mushroom soup, while my spicy clam soup was nice too, with hint of herbal in it. The omelette was nice, but my colleague said it was too salty. The eggs were salted and along with bacon strips, which were already salty, it made it even saltier. At least this omelette was a lot tastier and appetizing than Bamboo Cafe‘s and Cake Walk Cafe‘s counterparts, which were practically tasteless. Perhaps they should have put some cheese in it to balance out the salty taste. The bill came up to around RM33 for 2 pax, with less than filling food.

I would like to visit the place more often to try out other choices on the menu. There were just so many to choose from and I’
