BALANGA CITY — A double-decker bus-turned-into a unique Hong Kong restaurant has started operating adjacent to the busy Bataan Capitol Road near the intersection leading to the city public market.
The restaurant named Hong Kong Station operates side by side with other eateries under the City Food Expo that opened in time for the Christmas season. The food expo closes on Dec. 31, 2016 but Hong Kong Station will go on.
Jason Austria, young entrepreneur and owner, said they serve Dimsum dumplings, congee, rice toppings and other short orders daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
“There is no need for you to go to Hong Kong. Just spend a few bucks and you can experience here the authentic and affordable Hong Kong experience with music and video,” he said.
Austria said the prices are within reach of everybody.
“Everybody, like students, working professionals, senior citizens, families can afford the prices,” he said.
The owner said their menu is prepared by dimsum chefs from Manila and all the ingredients come from Binondo, Manila.
Austria said double-decker buses are famous in London (England) and Hong Kong.
“We decided to pattern our restaurant and offer authentic Hong Kong Chinese cuisine,” he said.
Visitors enjoy both the main and upper decks designed with Chinese décor.
