One unassuming Sunday we drove all the way to Malate for lunch at Century Seafood restaurant. I thought it was going to be an ordinary lunch until the food came out.
The Hainanese chicken was one of the best I’ve tried in Manila. The chicken was tender, juicy and slightly salty.

This is when the over-the-top food begins. For a more detailed description and pictures of this soup click here.

These US scallops were huge!

Yep it was really that big. I managed to eat 1/2 only. Even though the scallops were gigantic it was succulent and delicious. By this time most of us were unbuttoning our pants.
The fried beef brisket reminded me of the beef on top of beef noodle soup except this was ten times more scrumptious.

What more food and it’s rice? Are you kidding? We were all groaning in pain by then. We tasted a spoonful each of the to-die-for crab and Chinese sausage or lap cheong rice. The crab meat plus the drippings from the fragrant sausage made it an extraordinary rice casserole.

Thank goodness for a simple ending of masachi. Everyone declared this to be the best Sunday lunch ever. After that we all rolled ourselves to the car. Burp.
