Taiwanese Anyone?

22 Jun

After our morning shopping trip to Uniqlo, Mall of Asia, we decided to have lunch there to treat our dearest Tatay to lunch. Β It was a late Father’s Day celebration because last Sunday was just so full of eating events, Baptisms and reunions. Β So we decided to treat our Dad last Tuesday πŸ™‚

We actually didn’t know where to eat yet so we checked the mall directory πŸ™‚ Β My older brother spotted Lugang Cafe in the list. Β And the choice was made πŸ™‚

I absolutely loved the interiors of this place. Completely did not think it would look like this since I was expecting a typical Asian restaurant with simple interiors and round tables πŸ™‚

Drinks were massive πŸ™‚

Three-cup Chicken. A house special.

Pineapple Rice.

Eggplant with Spicy Sour Sauce in Clay Pot. My personal favorite πŸ™‚


Stir-Fry Beef with Chili Peppers

Steamed Pork Xiao Long Bao. Ready… set… gooooo!!!

Admiring this little dumpling πŸ™‚ Β So yummy!!! πŸ™‚ We had two orders of these πŸ™‚

PEANUT SMOOTHIE. OMG. This, I must say, one of the best desserts I’ve tried ever πŸ™‚ I just want to stuff this smoothie in a glass and drink it with a straw. So refreshingly yummy. A MUST TRY.

Overall, it was a great meal πŸ™‚ Β But that Peanut Smoothie just stole the show. Β I cannot wait to go back to try the other desserts and other house specials like the minced pork. Β That looked really good, too. Β Ayayay!

Best part of the meal was being able to hang with my parents and brothers after shopping at Uniqlo πŸ™‚ Β Wish there were more days like these πŸ™‚
