Breakthrough Cafe

It is my second time here and I will say it again: This place has good and cheap food + good service! 

The Prawn Rice Roll (Chee Cheong Fun) ($3) had bouncy and small prawns in each segment of the rice roll. 

The Char Siew Pau's (90 cents) skin was a little dry but the filling was okay.

The Glutinous Rice ($2) was good. Tonnes of juicy mushroom covering the flavourful rice (with dried prawns).

The Har Gow (Prawn Dumpling) ($3.20) had a juicy, big and fresh prawn in every dumpling. The prawn practically takes up every void space there is between the skin and the prawn. Wished the skin could be a tad thinner though!

The Siew Mai ($2.50) was not bad although I think it has been steamed for a little too long, resulting in it being a little dry.

As you can see, there are plenty of servers, so the food came really quickly. Service was good with all of them being very friendly.

Our total bill for two worked out to $11.60 (No service charge). I think the above is a sufficient reason for you to visit even with the very slight misses in the food (mostly it being a little too dry). But if you need one more reason, it's because this cafe gives reformed drug addicts a chance at employment. Their service attitudes are a lot better than many others in the big restaurants, which makes it a joy to dine here.
