The food featured here are from 2 consecutive Sundays when we ate at Peking Garden in Trinoma. It’s been a while since I’ve eaten there and I’ve missed the fabulous appetizers that they’re known for.
spicy wanton wrapper crisps
In Manila, Peking Garden serves the best xiao long bau or soupy dumplings. The skin is relatively thin, the meat is well seasoned and the soup generous.
steamed supreme soup & pork dumplings P150/5 pcs.
No other restaurant beats Peking Garden in the speed of cutting and presenting the sliced duck. They also take time to scrape the skin clean of any fat. This lessens our guilt in eating this decadent dish.
We had a special treat for lunch. Beggar’s chicken is a popular dish from Beijing that is made from chicken and preserved mustard greens and then it’s wrapped in lotus leaves and clay or in this case bread. Cooking the chicken this way ensures a very tender and tasty dish. Beggar’s chicken requires advanced ordering.
beggar’s chicken P1,000
I don’t know what these veggies were but I loved them. They’re light and crispy a good contrast to the bamboo shoots and sweet candied walnuts.
crispy vegetable, conpoy w/ bamboo shoot & walnuts P570 (M)
poached mustard greens in supreme soup P375 (M)
