Tasty Cafe Restaurant

$$$$(954) 908-5122
Hours:SUNDAY10:30AM to 9:00PM

While it doesn’t advertise itself as such, Davie’s Tasty Cafe is one of South Florida’s only cha chaan tengs—the Hong Kong equivalent of a Cuban cafeteria or an American diner. These types of restaurants are the places to get Cantonese reimaginings of Western dishes like French toast. Except the French toast here is made from a two-inch slice of milk bread that’s stuffed with peanut butter, deep fried, and served with butter and condensed milk.

We love coming here for a weekend brunch and starting with a cup of hot, strong milk tea, which is as essential as ordering a cafe con leche at a cafeteria. Their Cantonese BBQ, which you can see hanging from a display case, is a must. Tasty Cafe also serves steamed rice rolls, which are rolls of delicate sheets of steamed rice batter with a texture somewhere between noodles and mochi. Our favorite way to order them is street food style with a drizzle of sweet soy sauce, Sriracha, and peanut sauce. This is also a great place to grab congee, legit Cantonese wonton soup (which is 100 times better than the takeout stuff), and an excellent pineapple fried rice.

The vibe here is casual and cozy—just like you’d expect from a cute diner—and we love the wall featuring cartoons of Hong Kong city life. Tasty Cafe is also located right next to Foodtown, a great international market worth checking out after you eat.
