Zhu is the latest addition to the chinese cuisine options in the Fort. You can’t help but think that this is a Gloria-Maris affiliated restaurant because of the distinct similarity of the menu options. Its bright pink and bright yellow motif was enough to entice us to spend our Father’s Day celebration in Zhu. It was on its first week of operation so expect faulty aircons/ exhaust systems, and inefficient crew. Despite that, I knew that it was a winner after I tasted the soup of the Xiao Long Pao dimsum and the secret house sauce of Zhu’s Hot Pot. Our Hong Kong style meals ended with the taho similar to the ones we order in Gloria Maris. For me, I like Zhu because it is away from the crowded friday night scene in Serenda and the usual Mall establishments. It is conveniently located beside Secret Recipe’s so you can end your meal with its award winning Cheese Cakes!

Dessert and Beverage

Mango with Shrimp Salad (P48+). Nothing spectacular except for its unconventional serving of this salad dish.

Jumbo Xiao Long Pao (P68+). It was indeed Jumbo (almost as big as a fist) and the soup was fantastic.

Yang Chow (P150+) Fried Rice.

Sate Soup (P120+). The Sate Soup was highly recommended and it lived up to our expectations.

Assorted Combo Set for 2 (P580+). Wow, this was actually a lot and worth it for a group of 5. This was enough for us since we still ordered other ala carte items.

Secret Special Sauce of the House for the Hot Pot! The only reason I’m coming back to Zhu is for this secret sauce. It is a combination of wan soy, garlic chili, sili, chopped garlic, home made soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and the secret sauce of the house. The secret sauce has a sweet peanut taste and its color reminded me of the color of mixed ketchup and mayonnaise. Once combined, the sauce is used as dip for the hot pot and it gives a combination of sweet, hot, sour, salty sensation.

Special Fried Rice in House (P168+). Nothing special except that allegedly it has a special ingredient that makes it more expensive.

Scallop Szechuan (P220+). Most of the dishes were wiped out except for this one.

Steam Fish Garlic (P220+). This is a standard order for my mom when we go to a chinese restaurant.

Lomaichi (P50+). We call this snow balls buchi and it was delicious.

Taho (P100+). My mom can’t stop raving about the taho and I would have to agree with her.
