Cha & Cafe

Newly opened Cha & Café in El Monte, CA has much to offer. We were greeted with friendly faces upon arriving and leaving the restaurant. The waitresses there dress as French maids whom I thought were very appealing. The services at Cha & Cafe were superb, our waitress being attentive but not overbearing. The atmosphere is comfortable and classy, yet the café has room for many people and is nicely decorated. Some of the great perks about the café is the free wi-fi, electronic games machines, sport channels and karaoke/ VIP room.

The restaurant carried brand new menu that features a mix of traditional Vietnamese and French cuisine with variety selection of smoothies and special drinks. You can tell they put a lot of thought into the menu.

The Starter: The Fried Egg Rolls

I definitely enjoyed the egg rolls tremendously. The platter was decorated very nicely with lettuce and variety of mints on the side. It was also served with a side of their homemade fish sauce. The eggrolls were hot, delicious and very crunchy. You can definitely tell the ingredients are fresh.

The Soups: Chicken Curry

This is definitely my all time favorite. You can't go wrong when it comes to this dish, especially for the curry and coconut fans. The chicken meats are very juicy and tender. The soup's taste balance very well with the coconut and curry. Neither of the main flavors over-powers each other. French bread is served on the side with the soup.

The Signature Dish: Filet Mignon Cubes w/ Salad, Egg w/ French bread)

This is the café's famous signature dish. The cube steak was very tender and juicy. You can tell they use very high grade steak for this dish. The salad was amazingly fresh and the vingerette was perfect in amount that it doesn't overkill the taste of the steak. They serve it along with two fried eggs and French bread.

Overall, this place is a gem. They have great service and good food. That's all you need to have an awesome time!
