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.  It was a late Father’s Day celebration because last Sunday was just so full of eating events, Baptisms and reunions.  So we decided to treat our Dad last Tuesday 🙂

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

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 🙂

Drinks were massive 🙂

Three-cup Chicken. A house special.

Pineapple Rice.

Eggplant with Spicy Sour Sauce in Clay Pot. My personal favorite 🙂


Stir-Fry Beef with Chili Peppers

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

Admiring this little dumpling 🙂  So yummy!!! 🙂 We had two orders of these 🙂

PEANUT SMOOTHIE. OMG. This, I must say, one of the best desserts I’ve tried ever 🙂 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 🙂  But that Peanut Smoothie just stole the show.  I cannot wait to go back to try the other desserts and other house specials like the minced pork.  That looked really good, too.  Ayayay!

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