The first Lido Cocina Tsina branch I visited is the one located in Visayas Avenue mainly because it’s near my place. Little did I know there’s another one close to me.
The Mindanao Avenue branch may not be as spacious as the one in Visayas Avenue but it does have parking spaces and they’re right beside a gas station. Moreover, this Lido Cocina Tsina branch is well-lit, clean and ventilated. Their staff are courteous and friendly, too!
When it comes to food, their Chinese dishes which are adapted to suit the Filipino palate doesn’t disappoint. In fact, they offer many choices which means you will surely find a dish that you will enjoy. They have some Rice Toppings Classico and Rice Toppings Primera perfect for solo diners. But if you’re with your family and/or friends, sharing is way better!
For this food trip, we enjoyed the following:
Hunan Style Lomi
Drunken Lechon Macau
Beef with Shallot Fried Rice
Though all these dishes are delicious, there are a few that really stood out. First on my list is the Manchurian Wings. It’s very flavorful and eating it with the Beef with Shallot Fried Rice was pleasant because there was a balance of taste.
Next is the Drunken Lechon Macau. It looks simple but did you know that this was marinated in Chinese White wine and spices for 60 hours? No wonder it’s flavorful and juicy; not to mention, the skin also crispy.
Another dish I love is the Shrimp Foo-Yong. When I eat at a Chinese restaurant, Foo Young an omelette dish is a must-have. This is my first time trying their Shrimp Foo-Yong and I was not disappointed.
For drinks and dessert, we had Four Seasons Shake as well as Buchi and Lychee with Tutti Frutti Jelly. Lido Cocina Tsina’s Four Seasons Shake is oozing with goodness. The only problem was that it took a little while to be served but it is worth the wait!
Now for the dessert. Between the two, I prefer the freshly-made Buchi – it’s warm, soft and delicious. The Tutti Frutti Jelly was good; however, it was too sweet making it difficult to enjoy.
Overall, I had a great dining experience at Lido Cocina Tsina. I will not only choose this restaurant for simple lunch/ dinner with family and/or friends but also for special occasions!
Come visit them at 43 Mindanao Ave. Brangay Bahay Toro, Beside Phoenix Gas Station, Quezon City.
