Alleluia Cafe used to be my family’s favourite Hong Kong Style Cafe. We used to eat here at least two to three times a week, or sometimes more O.O. We were sucked in by their large quantities, cheap prices, fast service, and average/good quality food.
However, ever since they raised their prices (by quite a bit in my opinion), we stopped going there because there were cheaper alternatives in Richmond. After yesterday’s horrible experience at Alleluia, I don’t know when I will ever go back again.
I ordered the Curry Minced Beef Fried Rice w/ Egg ($6.75). It looked pretty darn good I have to say, but sadly it didn’t taste as good as it looked. The not-very-flavourful curry made the rice a bit dry so I wondered if they just sprinkled curry powder onto the fried rice and that’s it. The fried egg was a nice touch though because I like mixing runny yolk into my rice.
Based on these reasons:
- recently raised prices
- you can get a free drink refill
- average quality food
- small parking area out front (takes forever to park sometimes)
- this one experience of utterly horrible service (-1 point)
