    the Food Court
    4 more images

    Again this is a bit of nostalgia for me since I grew up eating at SM Food Courts (although it was in the makati area during my youth) and budget meals here are quality and has an international flavor! my favorite is Sizzling Plate which is a budget steakhouse, wherein a small porterhouse steak cost only 130 pesos (in my7 youth days, a porterhouse steak in Sizzling Plate costs only 19 pesos). See my Pictures!

    Favorite Dish: Porterhouse Steak at Sizzling Plate, Gulaman at Sago (Filipino Sweet Drink) at Bugnaw, Filipino Style Ensaymada (Spanish Style is wy bigger!) at Muhlachs and Assorted Chinese Dumplings and Dim Sum at Hen lin.

    La Copa Restaurant: Romantic Ambience and Superb Food!

    by machomikemd Updated Jul 15, 2008

    outside
    4 more images

    this is one of my favorite fine dining and romantic restaurants since time imemorial (but it gets to change locations often so when i go back to PI, i have look for it literally). This fine dining restaurant and Wine Bar started in the vicinity of the now defunct philippine village hotel in the 1990's, then shifted to the mall facing the domestic airport and is presently beside duty free philippines (or facing the Pagcor Casino). It's dark lit interiors and piano music provide a cozy and ROMANTIC ambiance and it doesn't stop there since what is a restaurant without good food right? the food is excellent and is moderately priced!

    Favorite Dish: their freshly baked pandesal (ironic since philippine version is sweet while pan de sal means salt bread in spanish!) is to die for and is complimentary!, you can have heaping serving of it for free! Next on the Menu is the Lobster Bisque which is really pumpkin soup with grated tomatoes, potatoes and pieces of lobster tail in it which is absolutely fantastic at 140 pesos (it costs $ 9 and order in the states) and for the finale is the french inspired tartate steak variation, the steak charlemagne, which is tenderloin steak with bernaise sauce and buttered vegetables that costs 380 pesos a serving! (this is mty favorite here since time imemorial!) so after shopping at the duty free mall, proceed to La Copa which is just beside the mall!

    opens monday to sundays from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm to 12:00 pm.

    Luk Foo: Chinese Resto made famous by Pure Gold Mall

    This chinese restaurant is synonymous with pure gold mall since mr. Lucio Co owns both. Luk Foo is A typical Cantonese Restaurant (I find it ironic since most chinese immigranst in the philippines came from fujian province, not from guangzhou province and fujian cuisine is unknown here). Luk Foo is a moderately priced chinese-cantonese restaurant that offers what else but fresh steamed, stir fried, roast food. it is slightly cheaper than other mid-price chinese restaurant chains like North Park or Big buddha.

    it also has branches in commonwealth, angeles city, etc.

    Favorite Dish: Dimsums and dumplings! my favorite shiu mai (siomai in tagalog) in 70 pesos for 4 pieces and it the best tasting of it's kind in the philippines (followed only by Gloria Maris, which is a high end chinese restaurant in the philippines). Har Gau (Hakaw in tagalog) shrimp dumplings at 80 pesos per order., The shrimp ball (see my pictures) and off course the macau style roast pork at 350 pesos per 1/4 kilo order.

    Hap is the Chinese word for “to put together or bundle in one group.” Chan is Chinese for “place”. Hap Chan has come to be “the right place” for gathering the family, the clan, relatives, officemates, friends, etc.

    Hap chan started in 1997 as a small tea house in Pedro Gil Street, Malate, Manila (of which literally hundreds of people including me line up to have a table in their first restaurant), and serving only the Filipino-Chinese favorites mami (philippine chinese style ramen), lugao (philippine congee) and dimsum (chinese "yum cha" or dumpling).

    Hap Chan Tea House has slowly grown its menu and reach with outlets as far south as Tacloban in central Visayas. A popular stop for dinner fare, its Dakota branch counts among customers standing in queue senators, judges and various public officials holding office nearby. Hap Chan principal shareholder and a cook for the last 30 years, Kwok Man Wah and his team of Hong Kong cooks, continue to study and improve their craft, developing dishes and methods to ensure Hap Chan remains in the forefront of delighting loyal customers.

    Favorite Dish: Pork Shu Mai (dumpling) at 58 Pesos (1.30 USD), Lemon Milk Tea at 50 Pesos (1.12 USD), Beef Balls Dumpling at 58 pesos, Assorted Rice Congee at 85 Pesos (1.92 USD), Soyed Pork and Beef Innards at 110 Pesos (2.43 USD). Jasmine Rice at 30 Pesos. Soybean with Mango Pudding and Tapioca Pearls at 60 Pesos (1.35 USD) and a lot MORE!

    Flavours of China: Not heavy on the pocket

    by nixca316 Written Jan 15, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Flavours of China backdrop =)
    2 more images

    My mom and I are not always liquid, but we have some money stored somewhere out there ;p. We're very fortunate to have credit cards, but not all places that we love to eat at have this service.

    The last time I checked, at SM Sucat, there are only six(6) food establishments that offer this service (Starbucks, Max's Fried Chicken, Red Ribbon, Pizza Hut, _____ and Flavours of China) We only frequent three because of the service (Flavours of China, Max's and Pizza Hut) so let me talk about one of them first.

    Flavours of China is one of our favorites not because it's so posh or anything, but because the service is great. Usually, when a food establishment in our country allows credit cards, the prices are way up to the heavens.

    This place however is friendly to the pocket. The food is yummy and when you're so used to eating at Greenbelt where almost everything is pricey, it's a welcome treat to find out that the same amount of food gobbled at Greenbelt costs much, much less here.

    They have no service charge so it's up to you to give a very gracious or generous tip. They deserve that after all.

    You shouldn't discount the fact that my brother RJ, an autistic savant (and one of his talents is to "detect" good food), likes it here too.

    Yet, if you're expecting to taste authentic Chinese food, GO SOME PLACE ELSE. So even if I love it there, I'm just giving it a rating of four. I'm also ONLY rating THIS BRANCH (SM Sucat). As for the other branches, I have nothing to say about them yet. \

    Flavours of China is the sister of the Tempura Restaurant (I'll write about its ATC branch one of these days) and they have branches at some malls all over Metro Manila and some provinces.

    Favorite Dish: The fried noodles and the steamed fish...I also love the siopao (steamed meat roll) and the dimsum...they also serve free prawn crackers (which we forgo because we're allergic to prawns and its cousins)

    By the way, most of the dishes can be shared....wow, and for very affordable prices even!

    Oh and SM Advantage Card Holders and Prestige Card Holders (like us) get free Pot Stickers for a minimum purchase of P300.00 =) Yum, yum, yum!

    Maty's Tapsilog: Best Tapsilog

    by mikoykoy Updated Sep 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One set of Tapsilog plus free soup
    3 more images

    I can proudly say that this is really the best. Truly from our barrio.

    Maty's Original Tapsilog (short for tapa-sinangag-itlog or Cured meat, fried rice and fried egg) is no doubt the best tapsilog ever. There are 3 branches of Maty's all located in Don Galo, Paranaque. All of these three branches are managed by the sons of the late Maty Salazar.

    My tip - mix catsup, vinegar, pinch of salt and pepper for your condiment. Very good!

    Don't miss also their pork barbeque. For less than P50, you can already have a set of tapsilog.

    They also serve noodles and vegetables. Branch of Jerry started serving other set menus like Longsilog (Sausage, fried rice, fried egg), Porksilog (Porkchop, fried rice, fried egg) and others.

    Favorite Dish: Tapsilog and barbeque on the side. hehehe

    Located corner of Roxas Boulevard and Guarra Street in Baclaran, this is the location of the first Max's Restaurant (which also house its corporate office).

    Second floor of the building is usually reserved for functions (birthdays, debut, weddings) for exclusivity of the occasions.

    Last time I visited the place, they now have live performers/singers.

    I heard this branch is open 24 hours.

    Favorite Dish: Fried chicken - sarap (delicious) to the bones
    Fresh lumpiang ubod (coconut meat spring roll)

    Dampa (or Fresh Food as famously known ) will surely set your diet aside.

    Marvel the variety of seafoods available inside the wet market. King crabs, lobster, tiger prawns, oyster, mussels, varieties of fish, seaweeds are items to choose from. Pork and chicken are also available. You can either buy these items and have them cook by restaurants settled around the market or if you wish to just stay inside the restaurant you can let the staff do the buying on your behalf. One of the famous restaurant is in Dampa is Sharmila . Cooking charge start from P40

    Since the original location can longer accommodate the number of restaurant, Boracay Sea food complex was also established to allow other businessmen to set up his own restaurant around the area. Julie's Restaurant is one of the most visited in this complex.

    Favorite Dish: Kinilaw na Bariles (Tuna sauced in vinegar), Roasted Porkchop. Baked tahong
