All time favorite - Fried Pigeon

Have been eating at this restaurant since I was a kid and through the years the food has not change. It would be best if you come early as there are a lot of customers or better yet call for reservation if you come in groups.

After reading the reviews we decided to try this restaurant as it was just around the corner. Big mistake. It really caters more for the very traditional type of Chinese food not what we have come to expect or have at most restaurants serving Chinese food. We ordered the Chicken and cashews which was bland but OK, and the Fried... More

Our family had dinner at this authentic Chinese Restauraunt (in front of the US embassy). We ordered a variety of dishes, especially the shrimp were very fresh and delicious, the portions were huge. Try the fresh green mangoe juice - it tastes so good and is very healthy. We all ordered Jumbo Siopao to take home after dinner, which tastes... More

As expected, still very good fried crabs. Unfortunately, they do not have frog legs when we were there. Their polunchay in garlic and the jelly fish in their 3 kinds cold cuts were also good but the rest of the food we ordered were way below our expectations: the full of fat and over reddish pork asado & extra dry...

We decided to have my mom's birthday lunch here since we went to hear mass at Quiapo church. I used to eat in this restaurant some years ago when I don't really bother on foods that I eat - simply sit down, eat and consider everything delicious. This time around is my chance to really have a good review of... More

Emerald Garden Restaurant along Roxas Boulevard fronting the U.S. Embassy is one of the most famous Chinese restaurants in Manila. It's always busy at the restaurants, but the waiters do their best to cope with throng of diners. Place is not so nice, decoration is 1 star, atmosphere not so cozy, but the food is great. The Fish Roll is... More

Routine stop-by in the town, estimated about 6 times thus far. Myself as a Chinese why even bother to have my own national cuisine when I'm aboard, actually it was my first thought until i brought by a local friend of mine.
