It’s been 3 long years since I last posted a restaurant review in Tumblr so this excites me a lot. I’ve been meaning to write so many reviews since then in view of the fact that I’ve been flooded with food photos all over. That’s 3 years of “food-porning”, and now is the the only time to review everything (I suck at this scheduling thing). So here I am, trying to post appropriate reviews. Anyway, for the last couple of years that my family and I were visiting Bonifacio High Street, we always end up eating burgers and shakes and pasta. Those were the days when High Street was just a grassy terrain where I walk my dog with just a few shops near by.
I first passed by Wangfu during the Christmas holiday season when most people hang-out with their families literally everywhere. In the quest for a decent Chinese Restaurant which was not yet jam-packed with most crowds, I went restaurant-hunting with the fambam and we landed at Wangfu. Mom is a fan of Chinese cuisine so…
At that moment, what struck us the most was not the fact that it has adorable Al Fresco seats (which we really needed that time because we had our dog with us), but the very affordable prices on the menu. I really wish I had taken enough pictures to prove my point, but let me just highlight a few.
I went back to Wangfu just last month and I couldn’t quite recover with how I loved their oyster cakes!!! I mean, I’ve had oyster cakes before in different restaurants, in different countries even, but this one. It’s THE BOMB!
For those two times that I visited Wangfu, I never failed to order a plate of Oyster Cake. Both times, those babies were cooked evenly to perfection with the right amount of beans and oysters. (Pardon the fact that I am drooling as I write this! Haha)
I tried their Crunchy Sweet and Sour Pork with Lychee set that goes with a bowl of chicken broth soup, tofu, and garlic rice. Not bad for the price of P188 ($4.50)! Their soup and rice are unlimited. Sweet and Sour Pork had the perfect twist of lychees instead of the usual pineapples. It was a neat combination, well-balanced crunch and tenderness of the pork.
I’ve also tried their Beef Wanton Noodle Soup to go with my Oyster Cake. Unlike any other Beef Soup, this one is not that greasy and fatty plus the wantons were rich with meat and not binders and extenders. There were huge chunks of leafy vegetables and carrots, that’s always a huge plus for me.
To cap off the meal, I tried their traditional Mango Kachang. It was definitely flavorful with chunks of fresh mangoes in it. It has the delicate feel of creamy shaved ice that blends well with a little sour punch from the mangoes. Oh! And I’ve also tried it with Oyster Cakes (just can’t get enough!)
We’ve also tried their Kutchay Dumplings, Pork Spareribs, Pork Chops with Chinese Style Mayo Set, Tausi Fish Fillet Set, and Lucky Birthday Noodles (which I believe would make me lucky for the next few months since I ate it on my birthday), and each dish were equally good to the last bite.
If ever you’ve got the chance and lots of time in your hands, please do visit Wangfu! I highly recommend this. I’d probably give it a 4.5 out of 5. 🙂
