As I’ve tasted stated on my previous posts, we had too much of food tripping last week when we went to a mall. Tina was encouraged to try for the first time an established Chinese restaurant that offers good tasting dishes that are easy on the budget.
This post was also inspired by one of my virtual-blogger friends, mrs. lavendula whose blog entry reminded me that it has been a while since I last munched at this foodplace where reasonably priced and delicious gastronomic yummies can be enjoyed with a cup of hot tea.
HALO-HALO CONGEE, PhP 130.
Tina had this congee. I like this too. It’s always soothing to hungry stomachs! It’s served hot, with eggs, organ meats, and pieces of thin crackers. With this alone, one can be easily satiated.
BRAISED SEAFOOD NOODLES, PhP 185.
The mushroom, the braised noodles on special oil and seasoning, the seafoods yield delicious oriental dish!
We had these favorites as our hearty dinner last week which were all served fast by efficient and friendly staff of Luk Yuen, MegaMall. Their other branch that I’ve tried was at Greenhills, between Unimart and Virra Mall near the Holy Family Chapel. And their service and food were consistent. No wonder Luk Yuen has a following among foodies and families.
SPRING ROLLS, PhP 90.
Fresh veggies wrapped and fried to crispiest.
STEAMED SHRIMP DUMPLINGS, PhP 100.
Steamed shrimp dumplings or Hakao is always a winner. Luk Yuen’s version has a soft moist wrapper and generous serving of shrimps. I just love anything with shrimp!
JUMBO HONG KONG SIOPAO, PhP 75.
I am biased with bola-bola siopao than asado only because it has red salted egg. Luk Yuen’s HK style jumbo siopao reminds me of Hen Lin’s and Le Ching’s. We enjoyed this as well but considering the siopao bread, Kowloon’s always wins my vote!
RIPE MANGO SHAKE, PhP 65, ICED TEA PhP 42. Look how my wife and son enjoyed Luk Yuen…
