LUGANG CAFE is the best contemporary Taiwanese restaurant in Manila. They were able to beat their rivals in this category and continue to expand with the same yummy consistency in the Metro.

They have a huge menu, and I've often asked what the best food to order on the list is. We had one of our mastermind meetings at the SM Aura branch and each one ordered their favorites. 

Check out our Lugang Cafe Experience...

DIMSUM BREAK: Are you craving for The Original Steamed Fried Rice of Cebu?!

Instagram

DIMSUM BREAK-18.jpg

The Steam Fried Rice of Cebu is fried rice topped with shrimp and pork, and steamed in a rice cooker with its secret sauce. This was an original creation of Mr. Henry Uytengsu of Ding Qua Qua Dimsum House in Cebu, which pionereed the all-day dimsum dining in 1969.

After Ding Qua Qua (1 branch) which offers a signature dimsum buffet, Mr. Uytengsu's group created Harbour City Dimsum House (3 branches) which featured the traditional dimsum carts wheeled to the customers' table-sides. They then created the mall-based Dimsum Break outlet (13 banches) to originally address the dining needs of the mall's late night foodies from the bowling alleys and cinemas.

True enough, the name "Dimsum Break" was inspired by taking breaks to eat dimsum during a bowling session. It is considered the Philippines' version of Panda Express.

Check out what Dimsum Break has to offer...

MODERN SICHUAN: A Taste of Sichuan Cuisine in BGC!

Modern Sichuan-13.jpg

Manila is crazy about spicy food these days, and it's just the right time to introduce MODERN SICHUAN, the first modern Sichuan-themed restaurant in Manila.  Sichuan is my favorite among all the Chinese cuisines because of its unique hotness and distinctive flavors.

Sichuan usually refers to the cuisines from Chengdu, Chongqing, Leshan, Neijang, and Zigong in China. Sichuan uses three peppers: red chili peppers, black peppercorns, and hua jian (Sichuan Peppers) vs. Hunan cuisine which just uses chili. Hua jian peppers provide the malasensation-anaesthetic effect experienced when the peppercorn flavor makes contact with the saliva feeling your tongue numb to the chili.

Modern Sichuan also carries the Modern China menu for those who don't like spicy food. The menu is overwhelming and offers unique dishes that you can't find in any Chinese restaurant. 

Here are the dishes that we love and recommend in Modern Sichuan:
