Highlands China Palace

We couldn’t decide where to eat dinner and we were hungry so we went to Highlands China Palace right inside Tagaytay Highlands. It was a good decision.

Members of Tagaytay Highlands are very fortunate that they have a large Chinese restaurant that serves well cooked, authentic Chinese food in their backyard. I’m sure this restaurant is always full during weekends when most people go to Highlands.

Chinese restaurants usually give free peanuts or in Peking Garden’s case, spicy wonton crisps for snacks while waiting for your food. China Palace had a yummy mixture of fried peanuts, corn, green peas and broad beans. You can buy this in the supermarket. This super addicting snack has the unfortunate name of Ding Dong Mixed Nuts.

The eggplant was everybody’s favorite dish. It was so tasty from the bits of dried salted fish that flavored the eggplant and tender pacific clams. It went very well with the salted fish fried rice.

How can you go wrong with crunchy noodles and fresh seafood sauce. The trick is to eat it quickly while the noodles are still in the half crunchy half soft stage.

The crisp prawns needed just the quickest dip of salty Chinese bagoong. Mmmm.

I had already eaten half of my lettuce cup filled with a heaping serving of the minced pork thinking it was minced pigeon. It was just as good as the original minced pigeon version.
