Simply Bread, Robertson Quay
This was another recommendation in a posting from a while back. Instead of going to the shop on 5th Avenue though, we went to the original bakery at the Quayside (#01-15, 6732-2966). Right when we walked in, we got a whiff of freshly baked bread, as well as French toast grilling away. Naturally, we ordered a plate of the French toast, as well as a roast beef sandwich. The latter came first, and was encouragingly done with nothing but with meat, tomatoes, and grain mustard. The Projectshop Cafe could use a lesson or two from here.
The French toast came next. It was a bit odd to see it without any powdered sugar on top (cue: Road Trip). I got another surprise when I realized that the maple syrup was actually honey instead (apparently that's the way it's done in Hong Kong?), thus making it a bit too sweet (but at least they kept it on the side). Well, the toast was rather perfectly grilled though (cue: Kramer vs. Kramer), so if they would just offer maple syrup for this, then we would be set.
Despite these issues, overall this place was pretty good, without being pretentious. We'll come back again for breakfast. A very tall and aptly named "Everything" sandwich that was ordered by a neighboring table looked like it was worth trying too.
