We didn’t plan on eating at another chinese restaurant so soon, but we felt obligated to eat here because it was the only restaurant at The Strip, where we parked our car. This is cheaper than parking in The Medical City because the parking rates in the hospital is just ridiculously high. A friend later suggested we park at the Rockwell Business Center (not the one in Makati), so we should try that next time. And that’s it for Manila’s parking woes and how we ended up eating again at a another chinese restaurant too soon, so onto the food!
Beef with Wanton Noodles (regular size) Php 148.00
They are offering whole wheat noodles, which is rare for Chinese restaurants here in the Philippines. So I grabbed the opportunity and ordered the thick whole wheat noodles because I’m health conscious that way. The soup stock tasted great even though I barely tasted the MSG (I don’t think there was any), and the beef tendon was soft and chewy just the way I like it.
A slow food classic. Flavorful, gelatinous achilles beef tendons with paper-thin flour skin filled with diced pork and shrimp.
Fresh Prawn Dumpling Hakao (3 pcs.) Php 139.00
Our appetizer, which was the first one to arrive. I had to take pictures quickly because my wife was already itching to snatch the dimsums off the plate. It was good, standard fare Hakao – 2 shrimps wrapped in gluten skin and steamed.
Made from 100% pure sea-caught prawns enveloped in gluten skin.
Lechon Macau over Fried Rice Php 238.00
Fried rice topped with delicious crispy lechon dripping with unhealthy goodness. So good yet so bad!
Charcoal broiled crispy, juicy pork belly. Served with egg fried rice.
Complimentary House Tea
A standard requirement for Chinese restaurants.
North Park branches have been sprouting up everywhere in the Metro. I guess this is nothing surprising because they serve quality Chinese food at an inexpensive price. I like the place as they also generously supply tissues along with the good food.
