The Spaghetti House chain has a total of 24 branches throughout Hong Kong -- and there will probably be more by the time you read this. They're popular with families, young Chinese couples on dates, and foreigners who have had their fill of Chinese food and crave something familiar but cheap. Spaghetti and pizza cooked American-style or with Asian ingredients are the specialties here, and the decor and atmosphere resemble those of an American pizza parlor. Choose from more than a half-dozen varieties of spaghetti with both Western and Asian toppings, as well as pizzas (in two sizes). Although the food is only average in quality, the quantity more than makes up for it; most orders can be taken out.

(tel. 852/2367 1683) and 38 Haiphong Rd., both in Tsim Sha Tsui (tel. 852/2376 1015; MTR: Tsim Sha Tsui); 221 Nathan Rd., Yau Ma Tei (tel. 852/2377 2005; MTR: Jordan); 594 Nathan Rd., Mong Kok (tel. 852/2388 4379; MTR: Mong Kok); Admiralty Centre, 18 Harcourt Rd., Central (tel. 852/2866 1522; MTR: Admiralty); 68 Hennessy Rd., Wan Chai (tel. 852/2529 0901; MTR: Wan Chai); Shop 8, PJ Plaza, Paterson Street, Causeway Bay (tel. 852/2895 2928; MTR: Causeway Bay); Matheson Centre, 3-5 Matheson St., Causeway Bay (tel. 852/2234 0605; MTR: Causeway Bay); and Shop P113, World Trade Centre, Causeway Bay (tel. 852/2972 2143l; MTR: Causeway Bay).
