Chinese Restaurants are not really a popular choice in the Makati City Area, most of the very good Chinese restaurants are in the Manila, Malate area. However there stood a chinese restaurant in Makati that has been there for quite some time now. And for Cody this was his first time to eat here.
Freebie- Wanton Skin crisp
Cody: bottomless!!!! Love it, crunchy and seasoned very well, I asked for sweet and sour sauce 3x but it never came….
Elle: crunchy, not oily. A little bit salty
Peking Duck-Skin wrapped in Chinese pancake
Cody: Its nice that u can order half a duck for a small group of people. Pancake was made just right. The duck was tender and wonderful. The skin was very goodElle : I like the pancake, it was thin and chewy, the duck skin was not really fatty, but it was still oily; as a whole it was very delicious
Fish Lip soup
Cody: it was good. Didn’t need the usual splash of black vinegar.
Elle: Warm and filling, not too salty and not too sour. I like it
Chili Garlic Fried Crab
Cody: Crabs here can be expensive but prepared very well.
Elle: The crab shell was so thin and crispy that I was tempted to eat it. It was cooked with a lot of chili and garlic. The meat was soft. And tasted a lot like the seasoning.
Fried Tofu w Veggies
Cody: not really a dish I would order. The tofu was not of the silken variety. The veggies were cooked perfectly.
Elle: the tofu was crispy but softened by the sauce. This dish is something vegetarians would like.
Cody: Veering away form the usual Birthday noodles, this is what we ordered. Sauteed quickly with few ingredients. This dish doesn’t have much flavor but it helped in filling up the tummyJ
Elle: I liked the blandness and simplicity of the noodles. It was not too complicated and did not have to much ingredients
Yang Chow Fried Rice
Cody: They do their yang chow wonderfully. Not oily. Every grain bursting with flavor from the seasoning and accompanied diced meat and veggies
Elle: their fried rice is really good. Seasoned well, with visible shrimp pieces and roasted pork asado
Minced duck in Lettuce Cups
Cody: After devouring the skin, this was our choice of cooking style for the rest of the duck. Salty and sweet, served with fresh lettuce leaves that are crisp. It was good. Too bad they only serve a few pieces of the lettuce leaves. Didn’t bother to ask for moreElle: Perfect combination of the soft duck meat and crispy singkamas cubes and fried noodles. Very tasty
Cody: Ribs were friend to crispy perfection. The marinade penetrated the meat to the bone. Delicious eaten with vinegar dip
One of he family's favorite restaurant to eat at to celebrate events or just to satisfy Chinese food craving. Always recommended. Always good
