My Breakfast Place

My breakfast place this side of town, Emerald Garden Easy vehicle parking, safe and accessible. My usual fare dimsum, hor fun noodles, soup noodles, congee and toast. Their signature Emerald Garden siopao @ 120 pesos a piece is also a reason for most who visit this place.

Portions are large here. Very good location along Roxas Boulevard. I loved the fried chicken and the shrimp crackers that came with it. Shrimp salad was also amazing. Most of their staff are middle-aged and very few young ones.

Nice restaurant to enjoy serious Chinese food.The place was full with lots of families around. Try lemon chicken and fried rice. Nothing fancy but reason to return will be good food and nice service.

Emerald Garden been in business for many decades serving Chinese food. It's fried crab is one of the best in Manila, one you don't want to miss. They maintain meaty crab supply for a long time. It's a little pricey. For a big size crab, you would expect for 1,000.00 more Peso. But is really tasty!

Pretty good Chinese food. We decided to eat there on a whim since it was close to the hotel. And we saw a lot of Chinese people entering so we figured a Chinese food restaurant with lots of Chinese must be ok. The servings were huge and we had lots of food for take out.

Had a late late at Emerald Garden, we were so tired after a long traffic from Antipolo and upon arrival , the restaurant was full packed. We were told to seat and wait but unlike other restaurant, there was no reservation list so waiting guests relied only on whoever attended. With that "style", we decided to just literally man and...
