We discovered Hong Fat BBQ Restaurant during our first visit to Adelaide, as it was close to the bus stop on Grote Street where we boarded the free city bus to travel around Adelaide city. They serve a wide variety of Chinese cuisine and serve a complimentary bowl of soup when you eat there.
One of the dishes I enjoyed eating there is the Salt and Pepper Prawns, consisting of deep-fried pieces of prawn coated in batter tossed in a salt and pepper seasoning. The prawns were fresh and perfectly cooked and the salt and pepper seasoning give it nice amount of zing without overpowering the dish. It also comes with prawn crackers that I like to eat with the salt and pepper seasoning.
The eggs of the BBQ Pork Omelette were fried golden brown and cooked just right, with the BBQ pork complementing the eggs perfectly. It was also served topped with a soy sauce based sauce which goes nicely with the eggs. This is called 'Foo Yong Tan' in Cantonese Chinese.
Stir Fried Tofu with Eggplant and Pork is one of the newer dishes served here and I was pleased that both the eggplant and pork were perfectly cooked and the tofu was a good contrast to the more flavourful eggplant and pork. It was cooked in a slightly sweet sauce that balances out the other ingredients well.
One of the best things about Hong Fat BBQ Restaurant is that the dishes are very affordable, the main course size of dishes only costing around $11 and the smaller serving of the dishes accompanied with rice costed only around $8.
