Best Crab Beehon – Ming Kee Live Seafood Restaurant in Makati

Ming Kee Live Seafood Restaurant opens its first store outside of Singapore, a place that specializes on food that is common on the southern region of China. A new dining destination in Poblacion, Makati – located in a 5-story building with a big open kitchen at the base and spacious dining area with a more modern, industrial look on the interiors coupled with traditional Chinese-style service. The place also has a nice bar on the third floor and 4 VIP rooms for events and banquets.

Tim Ho Wan: Pork Buns and other Dim Sum Treats

TIM HO WAN – There’s been a lot of buzz around this restaurant concept and their first store in SM Megamall was always packed with craving diners longing to get their fill of their famed pork buns. Good thing though that they recently opened two more stores in Glorietta and SM North so there’s other branches that you can go to get your fill of their dim sum treats. Went here for a quick weekday lunch with Y.

Shifu Masters Kitchen — Hole-in-the-wall Chinese Food Craving Fix

Shifu Masters Kitchen — A meek restaurant along Granada Street in Quezon City (Near Greenhills Town Center and Gilmore) with an odd name. A fairly small place with few tables. Food is surprisingly good! We tried a bunch of stuff from their menu, a feast of bold flavors, and playful takes on some familiar dishes. shifu_masters_kitchen_pata_bihon_poster This is their PATA BIHON — thin noodles exudes a wonderful aroma, served with succulent pork pieces that were fork tender, fatty bits melts in your mouth and gives a burst of flavor.

Panda Kitchenette — Hole-in-the-wall Sichuan Fix in Makati

The weather has been erratic for a few weeks now, cold, chilly, bed weather got me craving for a lot of things. First was ramen, some piping hot dim sum, and lately I’ve been craving for something else, something spicy that’s enough to set your … on fire. Then I came across this meek, hole-in-the-wall diner at Dela Rosa Street in Makati, Panda Kitchenette. With its quirky name, it’s a nice surprise that the place actually serves some promising Sichuan dishes. Oh that weirdly addicting spice from the Sichuan peppers, it’s really spicy usually not in a good way (I have low tolerance for spicy stuff) yet you keep on munching, craving for more.
