Cooking Papa Restaurant, Santa Clara

November 14, 2011 2 comments

Met up with some friends, J and P, at Cooking Papa located in the heart of Santa Clara that serves pretty authentic and delicious HK styled food. The place sure was crowded like any of the other HK restaurants in the Bay. Private Parking was really limited but street parking was easily available and the wait wasn’t that long before we got seated. Chatted a little and our friend, J, whose been there couple times ordered.

Roasted Peking Duck wrapped with Steam Bun

Food in general was pretty good and the environment was kinda cozy but loud like what you would have expected in most Asian Restaurants.

Rice Noodle Roll with Beef Fillet & Mushroom

The rice noodles roll was really good, probably one of the best I had in the bay.

Hong Kong Style Egg Puff

The puff were huge and it tasted kinda like donut according to P. I heard alot of people really like this tho. It’s also one of their signature desserts. J had been there several times and commented that the puff was not as good as the last couple times he came.

Anyway, I really like this place and definitely will visit them again the next time I drop by the area. However, be warned, its CASH ONLY.
