This place used to be a small shopping mall on the junction of Burrows Street and Wanchai Road (remember where the old cinema Capital cinema 京都戲院 is? This place is just off a block north of Capital cinema.). This mall was also my weekly visiting place as there are several record shops selling some imported vinyl discs, or I can say Sino Centre Mongkok and this place were the 2 most visited places back to the 80's. Remember those record shop names "The Beat", "Rock Gallery"?
Now here is Swiss Cafe. For those who are native HK people, Swiss chicken is no stranger at all. Again and repeatedly, the old story is from the Tai Ping restaurant for their sweet sauce chicken (sauce in dark soy sauce, soy sauce, sugar and bay leave) that the waiters and their western guests miscommunicated and so mistakenly call it "Swiss chicken".
I didn't order the Swiss chicken. Instead I had a black pepper steak dinner set (my high school favourite) at HK$60. This time they served a smoked salmon salad. At my first glance, I doubted if I should put it in my mouth. Surprisingly the salmon isn't bad though the portion is not big. Actually I prefer they serve some decent food in smaller portion rather than a junk of unwanted food. I was surprised they used some fresh fruits instead of canned mixed fruits. Actually fresh food is now cheaper than canned fruits. They used some green and red apples and some pear. This is what we call an appetizer. The toast is nice too (fresh bread used). So good to go with the aromatic Russian Borsch soup. The steak is also above average. At least the meat isn't that soda marinated. I like the veggie on the side to make it less greasy.
