I never liked whole dumplings that are fried. I much prefer the type where only the bottom of the dumpling is fried like with Japanese gyoza or Chinese potstickers. But these weren’t bad at all. It wasn’t greasy and the filling was tasty.

For me the best bihon or vermicelli is one with stewed pork leg either homemade or from the can. And so far other than our cook’s bihon the best is from Mann Hann.

The oysters were fresh and plump but there was a flavor that I couldn’t place that I didn’t like. It tasted like cumin or curry powder or something like that. It was a bit off for this dish.

The rice was perfectly season, the grains were fluffy and not too soft or too hard and the Taiwan sausage added a little bit of sweetness. The rice they used came from Taiwan. Maybe that’s why it was so good. I forgot all the other viands and just ate the fried rice. It was that heavenly. An order is good for 3-4 people or 2 really hungry rice lovers.

The 3 cups chicken was a disappointment and a far, far cry from the Lugang Cafe’s delicious version.

The lapu lapu was fresh but just a tad overcooked and gummy. But not bad for a small restaurant. I’ve tasted much worse from some big, famous Chinese restaurants in Manila.

The manager changed my order and promised to make the tea stronger and less sweet. Alas it was still mostly sweet milk. I can’t wait for Gong Cha to open in Mall of Asia soon so everyone can try what really good and authentic milk tea tastes like.
Overall the food wasn’t that great but the prices were really very reasonable. But you MUST go try the Taiwan fried rice! Maybe they have other dishes that will taste better. I will definitely go back for the fried rice again and again and again. I hope they cook it consistently or else I might read negative comments soon.
