There are three places I go to when I want Chinese (Cantonese) food:

1) Tin Hau @ Mandarin Oriental
2) Shang Palace @ Makati Shangri-La
3) Lili’s @ Hyatt

Let’s not talk about Binondo, as I’m only talking about getting fast access to food and not going through horrendous traffic just to get “authentic” Chinese food.

I go to Tin Hau the most because I have Mandarin Privilege card which gives me 50% off on my meals. With an appetite like mine, you’ll surely need the 50% discount.

I usually vary on my dimsum choices but I always get the taro puff. I love taro puff. I love taro. It wins as best vegetable root ever and guess what? I bet it can solve world hunger.

Then my dad ordered Crispy Baby Duck or something like that, just to try, as we usually get peking duck or roast goose.

The duck had a bit of an aftertaste so I only ate the skin (as usual). HAHA! Nice and crispy! Chomp, chomp, chomp.

Then I had shark’s fin dumpling, forgetting that they actually used shark’s fin. Not good when you’re into animal protection and conservation of endangered species. I didn’t enjoy that at all, even though the fin was just a tiny morsel. GUILT, GUILT, GUILT.

Can’t forget my steamed spare ribs, fatty and juicy, goes straight to the heart.

And finally, braised spinach tofu. I’m a big tofu eater.

Oh, don’t forget the rice. They always serve rice the last in Chinese restaurants. I always tell the waiter to serve it first cause I can’t eat without it. I’m Filipino like that. HAHA!
