It’s unbelievable but I ate at Choi Garden at lunch and dinner on my birthday! At lunch I treated our office staff but at dinner I was a guest. My birthday happens to fall on the same day as uncle E so it was his birthday dinner I attended. The food we ate at dinner was far from the from the food we had at lunch in terms of price and choices.
We started with cold cuts – roast pork, soy chicken, sliced beef, cucumbers.
The special treat for dinner was the whole Australian abalone per person. It was really, really tender and flavorful.
Next was this giant live lobster.
The lobster was cooked in the Chinese way with superior sauce. The sauce was very rich and buttery. The lobster despite it’s size was soft and succulent.

The leftover duck was cut up into pieces, seasoned and fried again. It wasn’t on the menu but they decided to do it for us. It was sooooo good to eat the spicy and tasty bones of the duck. Some pieces had more meat than others but either way it was still good.

The beautiful caramel birthday cake was from Estrel’s in Quezon City. Estrel’s is well known for their caramel cake.
