Sunday Lunch at Peking Garden Restaurant

Peking Garden Restaurant-5

sea blubber P280

Peking Garden Restaurant-2
deep fried beancurd cubes w/ minced meat P320

Peking Garden Restaurant-4
shredded chicken in chili sauce P280

These thinly sliced super crunchy fish are my favorite. The fish was coated with sweet and sour sauce. It’s unlike any fried fish I’ve ever eaten.

Now on to the main course dishes. Simply steamed fresh shrimps are the best way to savor seafood.

steamed sua-he (small shrimp)

Peking Garden Restaurant-10
assorted meat & seafood soup in casserole P525 (medium)

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.

Peking Garden Restaurant-12
hand-made noodles w/ beef and spring onion P170

Peking Garden Restaurant-13
deep fried crispy chicken w/ dried garlic P390/half P780/whole

Peking Garden Restaurant-14
barbecued Peking duck P2,100

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.

fried duck bones P300

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.

Andrew had the honor of breaking the bread layer with a heavy brass mallet.

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.
