This Hong Kong style coffee shop?located in the alleyway called the Chinatown Arcade?offers one of the city's strangest menus, incorporating Cantonese, British, Southeast Asian, Korean, Portuguese, and American elements (including Italian-American sausages in various guises). Egg breakfasts with hot dogs, Spam sandwiches on sesame-seeded bao, spaghetti with creamed corn and curried chicken, and kim chee fried rice are only some of the stranger notions. But Coluck also functions as a super-cheap southern Chinese restaurants, with a range of congees (order a cruller on the side), standard fried rices, and stir-fried noodles with a range of sauces. Food here is mind-bogglingly cheap, and the ambiance will remind you of a Western diner.
