Anyways, over the weekend we dined at Shanghai Bistro, they pride themselves to serve authentic Chinese dish in a a hotel atmosphere. The ambiance is indeed better looking as compared to other Chinese Restaurants. But what about the food? Are they at par at my "exquisite" taste? *hahaha* Do not react, that is a joke! :)
This wasn't a regular dining, we dined here because we had a surprise birthday party for my Aunt so this is a "set" meal! All the servings are served large! But you can dine in here and order ala carte. Their food isn't pricey, its regularly priced at around Php200-Php300 (approx $4-8) per small order.
My favorite for every platter like this are the Asado (Honeycured Pork) and the seaweed! I am not a fan of Century egg! Sorry to Century egg lovers out there. It's just not my taste!
Seafood Birthday Noodles
This tastes good! The quail eggs are usually colored in bright pink and this one came in neon orange! Reminded me of a local dish "penoy" (duck eggs). I love it that the noodles are served with a lot of sauce. I don't like it when noodles are dry!
Seafood Beancurd Soup
I like Four Treasure soup, Sharksfin soup and Corn soup! This tastes ok but not the type that would make me go "WOW".
Crispy Shrimp with MayonnaiseI am not a mayonnaise lover but this dish tastes amazing! I am allergic to seafood especially shrimps but I did not say no to this! I had anti-allergy tablets on hand! This girl's always ready! :P
Fried Crispy Garlic Chicken
Looks boring, but this is served with lovely tasting gravy. Not the fastfood tasting sauce but it actually complements the chicken so well!
Fish Fillet with MushroomI am fish fillet addict! But sad to say, this is the worst I've tasted! It looks amazingly scrumptious but there is something wrong with the fish fillet itself. It tastes like PLASTIC! I don't know where it's coming from but the mushrooms and vegetables taste good, bye bye to the fish! :(
Yang Chow Fried RiceThis didn't leave a strong impression on me! Regular tasting Yang Chow Fried Rice or is it because it was served at the latter part and I am already too full for my brain to register how it tastes like?
Fried Eggplant and Chicken
with a cute carrot bird in the middle!
I don't think there is something wrong with my taste bud! I remembered giving a weird look on this dish, I heard from my relatives that it's eggplant with chicken inside. For a vegetable that does not have any nutritional value, I am a fan of eggplant so I gave it a try! My mom loves it! I love it! I went for 2nd servings! That itself speaks about the dish! And it doesn't hurt how they carve such cute looking bird with carrots. The kids at the table are happy!
