Hing Chun Tea House, Newest Restaurant at Malakas Street

Have you been to Malakas Street in Diliman, Quezon City? You’ll probably say yes because that street features a well-known restaurant. I often visit that street because of that said restaurant; however, there’s now another reason. That would be Hing Chun Tea House. This two-storey Chinese restaurant looks small on the outside. But once you’re in, you’ll see that the place offers a spacious open dining area for their guest. And if you’re celebrating an important milestone with the whole family and friends, they have two private rooms on the second floor. Each private room can fit 10 people which can be combined to accommodate more guests. What about the food? Well, Hing Chun Tea House offers a wide selection of dishes and we got to try the following dishes: Westlake Beef Soup Nasi Goreng Fried Rice Pineapple Seafood Fried Rice Stuffed Mushroom Shrimp Duck Wok Noodles Singaporean Bihon Fish Tofu Tausi Salt & Pepper Spareribs Dimsum: Beef Ball, Kuchay Dumplings, Pork Siomai and Japanese Siomai with Century Egg Yes, that’s a lot of dishes …

Lido Cocina Tsina by Panciteria Lido – Mindanao Avenue

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 Beef Broccoli Drunken Lechon Macau Manchurian Wings Pugon-Roasted Asado Shrimp Foo-Yong Beef with Shallot Fried Rice Though all these dishes are delicious, there are a few that …

Time for Some Cantonese Cuisine at King Chef Dimsum Kitchen

If you want to enjoy some sumptuous Cantonese cuisine, head over to King Chef Dimsum Kitchen at The Food Circuit, The Block – SM City North EDSA. Now don’t be confused with King Chef Dimsum Kitchen and King Chef Seafood Restaurant because they are basically the same. Both were established by a husband-and-wife team – Michael Chan-Ang and Marites Apiado-Ang. Their journey began when Marites experimented and created various kinds of healthy but delicious soups for her husband who was dealing with an ailment. Michael loved the “soup treatment” which then sparked an idea. As a result, they opened a Cantonese Soup Kitchen.
