Weekend Food Trip at: Lucky Rainbow Seafood Restaurant

Happy Sunday food trip AMW friends!  Today, it's Chinese food galore!  It was hubby's birthday and we've decided to celebrate at Binondo area since we'll be taking the little one with us.  The nearer the better. Lucky Rainbow Seafood Restaurant crossed our minds as we've tried their Xiao Long Bao and Kuchai Dumplings and loved them dearly! 

Xiao Long Bao
4pcs Php98.00 (approx $2.22)
One of the best Xiao Long Bao I've tried to date!  I love how soft the wrapper was yet the soup was remained all inside this tiny pouch!  Lucky Rainbow's version of Xiao Long Bao is very flavorful, each tiny bag is packed with Xiao Long Bao goodness!

Kuchay Dumplings
Php78.00  for 3 pcs (approx $1.70)
If you are into vegetable dumplings PLEASE order this!  Mr. AMW loved this so much he ordered 3 orders of frozen Kuchay Dumplings to-go!  

Lucky Rainbow Special Spring Roll
Php78.00 (approx $1.77)
Though the outside doesn't look appealing, the inside tastes really good!  Strips of pork plus mushrooms with some sauced packed inside a crispy wrapper!  I will definitely order this again!  My favorite!

Steamed Beancurd Stick Roll
 Php78.00 (approx $1.77)
 Another personal favorite!  It is a bit slimmer than other Beancurd rolls I've tried from other Chinese restaurants but this is one of the most flavorful I've tried!

Salad Shrimp Spring Roll
4pcs Php98.00 (approx $2.22)
Seriously, quite inexpensive for a Salad Shrimp Spring Roll.  You get what you pay for though as the shrimp was almost non-existent and you get mostly fruits inside!  

 Pumpskin with Seafood Soup
 Small Php320.00 (approx $7.27)
One of the most unique soup that I've tried in a Chinese restaurant.  If you are a fan of Pumpkin Soup, this works perfectly as it doesn't just end there, you get bits of seafood on every bite! 

Minced Pork with Lettuce Wrap
 Small for Php380.00 (approx $8.64)
Another favorite dish of mine every time I visit a Chinese restaurant.  My best bet is still from Emerald Garden but this one isn't bad!   You get small slices of pork with crunchy noodles wrapped in a fresh lettuce leaf!  Perfect combination and can be eaten on its own!


Spicy Diced Chicken Szechuan Style
Php260.00 (approx $5.90)
 If you are a fan of chicken but got tired of all the boring chicken dishes, this Szechuan Style Chicken is very unique and your tongue will be on a tiny challenge!  Love the spiciness of this dish but not too much as you can still enjoy the taste of tender chicken.

Yang Chow Fried Rice
Medium for Php320.00 (approx $7.27)
Their version of Yang Chow Fried Rice is so-so, nothing exciting and I would appreciate it if they add more shrimps and pork.

Birthday Noodles
Php220.00 (approx $5.00)
It was Mr. AMW's birthday so it's always the best to celebrate with Birthday Noodles for Long Life :) This gets a thumbs up sign from me!

Overall, the servers are friendly but I was told by my parents in law that there are some days the dishes they serve tastes better.  I hope the restaurant would be consistent with the dishes they serve as I don't want my favorite Xiao Long Bao to taste different the next time I return.
