My friend Tisay posted pictures of her meal at King Chef Seafood Restaurant in Lucky Chinatown mall on her Facebook page and raved about it. I was so curious that I went to their QC branch to try it out. Going to Banawe, Quezon City to eat is a rare thing for me. It just seems so far but on weekends it’s not that bad.
I chose to eat at their fine dining restaurant just to order the crab rice (pictured above) which was one of the dishes Tisay had.
My dining mates were my three young cousins who love to eat and travel as much as I do. In fact Jay (on the left) has his own food blog too. I actually wanted to see their iPad mini which Jim (right) brought home from Singapore before I get my own that’s why I treated them for lunch. Silly excuse to eat and get together right?
Check out the video I took on how they made the drunken shrimp.
I actually ordered this dish for the rice. The crab was just extra. I was disappointed with the too soft and mushy rice. I was expecting semi-glutinous rice with some bite. It looks better than it tasted.

The roast duck wasn’t bad at all but it was just a tad dry. I liked that there was little fat but then it’s probably the reason it was dry. I couldn’t help compare it with my favorite roasted duck from Annapolis Seafood Restaurant (now called UNO Restaurant) which was moist and succulent.

The beauty about eating with 3 young men is no leftovers. Boy, these guys can eat!
