Weekend Food Tripping at: Emerald Garden

Happy Sunday!!! It's another weekend food tripping, I am glad a lot of you likes my food tripping posts! I can't believe people enjoy salivating on food pictures just like ME and my hubby! :)

Are you ready for Chinese food galore? Well today is the day! If you're hungry, do not blame me if you continue to scroll down! lol

We had a mini reunion because my Uncle will be going back to Canada soon and my brother also will be leaving for Shanghai again! It was my dad's birthday too so it's triple the celebration. Those who read my twitter knows what me and my family has been going through so a mini celebration is great to lighten up the mood! I want to thank those sweet messages too! I appreciate everyone's concern! Love ya all!

We've decided to dine in an authentic Chinese restaurant. Emerald Garden --- I love Emerald Garden that's why I celebrated my engagement party 2 years ago (July 7, 2007) on this exact restaurant! I believe it was the exact function room too! :)

We had a Lauriat Party for 2 tables :)

Hot & Cold Cuts Dish

Birthday Noodles

Corn Soup Crabmeat

Yang Chow Fried Rice (again lol)

Slice Beef with Gourd (Ampalaya)

Fried Shanghai Pork Springroll

Fried Fish Fillet with Separate
Sweet and Sour Sauce

Quick Fried Chicken with Kropeck

Mixed Seafood with Tausi Sauce
(this came in super late and everyone's already full! lol)

Plain Almond Jelly
My favorite!

Table for 12 for all those dishes costs around Php5,500 (approx $115.00) drinks NOT included. Come to think of it, you can feed 12 people and make them happy and full for that amount? Worth it! :)

You want to eat good quality Chinese dish? You can dine in here and order A La Carte! Trust me, its worth it :) Love this restaurant, never fails to satisfy our tummy!

    Over $100 seems like a lot of money, but considering it's for 12 people, that's a good value!

    Lisa, hahaha don't blame me, I did remind you early on not to scroll down lol! It's ok about not dining out a lot, it's healthy! But I guess we're just around restaurants so much so it gets tempting!

    Catherine, glad you love the photos, thanks to hubby :)

  21. the food looks scrumptious!! only one thing though - what's that scary looking fuschia balls on the birthday noodles?? o.O

    another almond jelly lover!! wheee!! :D add this to the list! hehe...

  22. aww Neurochiq, I love Chinese food in General LOL

    Bee, those are colored quail eggs! LOL hahahha yes! noted come down here and you let me know which one you would like to eat first :D

  23. Emerald Garden is always full so we always end up looking for another chinese restaurant... But it's unbelievable how it's always full and you have to wait all these years...

  24. Chelle, I know, it has been there for YEARS and they even opened up a new area, a new wing..and we always make sure to call and reserve before going there :D

  25. Love Emeralds!!! Their Gigantic siopao is also a winner! It's like chinese Big Mac, haha.. The stuffing consists of a juicy pork and chesnut/sinkamas meatball filling, topped with sweet barbeque pork slices (Tsa Sio), grilled-like chicken strips and about a quarter of a mildly salted egg. Plus sauce helpings. For P70 It is good for two person's merienda. For a whole meal, if you could finish a whole one, it's a total tummy filler. I wonder if you could do a food tripping over siopaos hehehe


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
