Second Visit to Honolulu Cafe - Curry Fish Balls & Chicken Wings with Swiss Sauce @ Centrepoint [Singapore]

I am back at honolulu cafe for their baked products, which i enjoyed very much in my last visit, and realised there's an additional menu with a list of main meals that i might have missed out previously! 

Now, to be honest, i am hardly excited. When i was in Hong Kong back in year 1998, i never quite understand why people like baked rice and instant noodles in a cafe setting. For instant noodles, i believe i can make a better version from the pack of Myojo shrimp tanmen and it's of course much cheaper. 

My thoughts weren't shared with my family and they happily ordered quite a few mains. Pork Chop with Spaghetti was one of them and aside from a rather bland sauce, i am most disappointed with the pork chop which had a soft and pulpy texture that rendered the dish almost unpalatable. 

Curry Fish Balls - with the cafe's logo right beside the dish on the menu, i presume it refers to "signature" and happily ordered a serving. Blessed with a solid texture, the fish balls were quite tasty although i think i would prefer curry cooked with the more fragrant coconut milk.

Chicken Wings with Swiss Sauce - my sister and i were under the impression that the chicken wings would be deep fried; hence, we were dumbfounded for a few seconds when the above was served to us; weren't those soy sauce chicken?!

Frankly, they didn't taste horrid but i must add that there's a strong similarity between these ones drenched in swiss sauce and the normal soy sauce chicken wings. Problem was; i have had much better ones.

Guess i did the right thing by insisting on having french toast, polo bun with butter and egg tarts, instead of a proper main meal. You would never go wrong with the aforementioned in your visit to Honolulu Cafe. By the way, service was much better this time!
