RED ONION CAFE (红葱头 Hong Cong Tou): Taiwanese Beef Noodles, Crispy Dumplings, and Home Cooking @UP_TownCenter

RED ONION CAFE - Our Awesome Planet-24.jpg

RED ONION CAFE (红葱头 Hong Cong Tou)  is a Taiwanese Restaurant specializing in Taiwanese Beef Noodles (the Ramen of Taiwan), Crispy Dumplings, and Taiwanese comfort food favorites like Lu Rou Rice and dumplings, or chicken with Sichuan Mala Chili Oil

The name is a tribute to Red Onions or Shallots -- the ingredient that gives flavor and is present in most Taiwanese food. It is proudly conceptualized here in Manila by Taiwanese Wen-Szu Lin and local partner Mark Endaya, who plan to expand the concept both locally and the rest of South East Asia.

We tried Red Onion Cafe with my YoYo Master friend, Pat Cuartero -- who gave a YoYo exhibition at the end of our meal. :) Check this out!

10 Most AWESOME Chinese Restaurants in Manila! 恭喜發財 Kung Hei Fat Choi!

We love Chinese Food! Here's a wrap-up of our favorite Chinese Restaurants in Manila where you can have the most awesome Chinese experience for your family celebrations :

1. GLORIA MARIS

Father's Day at Gloria Maris-36.jpg

GLORIA MARIS Restaurant, specifically the one in Greenhills, is our all-time favorite go-to place for authentic Cantonese food in Manila since 1995. My wife's family likes holding their special celebrations here, and I love the yummy consistency of their food every single time.

Last year, Gloria Maris moved to a new location with an impressive fine dining ambiance and an introduction of modern Cantonese cuisine to take the dining experience to a whole different level.

Here's our modern fine dining experience at Gloria Maris Greenhills:

Verdict

Overall, I love the home-grown Cantonese yumminess of Gloria Maris and how it has been consistent with the same Hong Kong chefs over the years. I love the new Gloria Maris ambiance and the modern Cantonese dining menu.

We usually eat lauriat-style everytime there's a family celebration, and Gloria Maris still tops the list of Chinese Restaurants we have tried over the years in the metro.

Make sure to reserve one of the VIP rooms, to assemble your own lauriat menu, and to select the dishes with the cool presentation.

They are open all year round -- even on Christmas Day and Holy Week -- but don't forget to make reservations because they get FULL, especially during peak special occasions.

Gloria Maris Shark’s Fin Restaurant
Located at Greenhills Shopping Center, Ortigas Ave.,
Missouri Street Corner Connecticut San Juan, Metro Manila
Telephone: +632 570-0921, 570-0923, 570-0924

KING CHEF Binondo: The Best Chinese Restaurant in @LuckyChinatown!

KING CHEF - Binondo - Our Awesome Planet-24.jpg 

KING CHEF is a Cantonese Kitchen owned by Michael Chan-Ang and Marites Apiado-Ang, best known for their herbal soup and yummy Cantonese comfort food.

They started with their flagship branch along Banawe Street and gradually branched out to be one of the best restaurants in Lucky Chinatown, Binondo.

The name is inspired by a chef's ultimate goal in the olden times of pleasing the King's palate. Nowadays, the King is the Foodie who patronizes the restaurant, but the chef's goal of preparing a feast to please the palate remains the same. :)

Check out our King Chef experience...
