- Portugese Baked Chicken on Fried Rice
- Chinese Roast Pork and Bean Curd on Rice
The Portuguese Baked Chicken on Fried Rice was acceptable. The abundance of cheese was definitely a bonus and added richness. However the sauce itself was rather salty and felt more like a curry sauce than a Portugese sauce. The chicken itself was tender and juicy, however the “fried rice” was neither fried, nor contained the usual eggs, peas that could be found in a normal fried rice. Really, it was simply steamed rice.
The Chinese Roast Pork and Bean Curd on Rice was disappointing to say the least. The Roast Pork were clearly off cuts. They were tough, dry and very chewy. The chunks of bean curd were few and far between. Overall not enjoyable, nor satisfying.
Despite rated so highly, Fai’s was a let down for sure. Hong Kong style cafes are no longer in short supply in Melbourne, and there are plenty that offer better quality, and better value all round.
